Iokwe from OK! Merry Christmas!


Today is actually our P-Day so you get to hear from me twice this week in quick succession. Because of that, I'll keep this one short and you'll get to hear from me again with some new updates after the year has passed.

Talking with Elder Kilmer on P-Day

Biggest update: our mission is changing its boundaries! We are accumulating Tulsa and some surrounding areas as part of our mission! So Elder Menlove is actually transferring to a new area in Tulsa (English speaking). Elder Nicholas is transferring back to the East side with Elder Lazarus and Elder Tetea and I are staying the same on the West side! This whole change is crazy because it means a lot of missionaries will end up moving areas and houses, but it will allow for every ward (church boundary area) in our mission and the adjacent mission in Arkansas to have missionaries! 

The other exciting thing this week happened while Elder Tetea and I were trying some new Marshallese houses we had yet to knock on. At one, the door opened and Zniko was standing right in front of my face. You may not remember Richie and Zniko, but they are a wonderful couple that we were teaching before that kind of fell away for a bit. They wanted to get baptized, but were waiting on marriage and in the meantime got busy jobs and never really would keep appointments. But she was really excited to see us and told us they now have a car and are moving to their own house and want to come back to church actively. I was so excited and I believe this is a really good fresh start for them. Anxious to give you good updates on that in the coming weeks!

Have a great Christmas everyone. Remember the Savior. Love you all.
