MALO! so im so sorry,  this will be a short email.....

So today was temple p-day, ahhh what a blessing. i didn't want to leave. :) We got up nice and early and took the train as a zone to the city and then walked up to the temple. 

This past week was really long, but it was good! We are starting to build up our teaching pool a bit and Heavenly Father is sure blessing us with miracles daily. thanks for all your prayers, they are sure felt! But please pray for Sister Lilo. I am doing my best to really help her to enjoy the work and to focus on it, but its easier said than done. :) And I know that Heavenly Father can help her and bless her much better than I can, so please keep her in your prayers. 

But this past week was great! We had the blessing of speaking in church and afterwards a ysa came up to me and told me that she had been baptized last year and that her sister also wanted to be baptized but that she wanted to be taught by someone like the missionary that taught her, and so when she saw me speak she said that i reminded her a lot of that missionary and so she asked if we would be able to teach her sister! So i am pumped to be able to meet her!! :) 

Also we are having a baptism this week, his name is Chris, he is from africa and he is about 20. Sister Lilo started teaching him and I have been able to teach him a few times and so we are soo excited for saturday! So yesterday we were going over the baptismal interveiw questions with him and Sister Lilo asked him what is meant for him that we have a living prophet on earth today, and he said, "it is just more convicincing evidence that the book of mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet." When he said that, man, the spirit was so strong, it melted our hearts. haha i love seeing when people understand and apply the gospel. ahhh its the best feeling ever!!!! But i will tell you more about it on monday. :)  

Also, thank you soo much Heather for your sweet gift! She sent me 2 scarves, one of them i am wearing in the picture with us 4 sisters, but that was such a sweet surprise! 

Well i love you! And ill talk to you in a few days. hopefully you can send me some pictures of what you have all been up to... :) thanks OTE ALOFA IA TE OI!

LOVE, Sister Alldredge
