Hey Everybody!Well I made it, and I'm still alive. So life is good. It took us close to 24 hours to travel here. We reported to the Bus at the MTC at 3, then took a train to the airport, then flew to LAX and got on a plane to Fiji. That plane flight was interesting because 85% of the passengers were Jehovah's Witnesses going to a conference, so we avoided Bible Bashing, then mostly gave up trying to talk because it felt like we were trying to convert each other. We were being very receptive and respectful, but they would downright turn us down, it was pretty interesting. That flight was about 11 hours long, but it was through the night, so I slept most of it. Then we were delayed in Fiji for another 4 hours and the flight to Kiribati was 3 hours. So long but totally worth it!
My shower is pretty good. There is no hot water, but then again the air is so hot that it feels good. So I usually enjoy my showers. Except this morning. I slept at the Zone leaders house (I don't know why they only told me in Kiribati). They have an air conditioned sleeping room. So first thing this morning I got up and took a shower, but since I had been in a cooler room the shower was not refreshing, just cold. I stood as out of the stream as I could and splashed myself wet. Then turned off the water, soaped down, and then being a missionary said a sincere prayer for strength and turned on the water full stream on my head. The prayer helped, so it was good.
