Morgan, 'io malo 'etau lava 'oku ou sai 'aupito well done on the tongan;-)
they dont really celebrate any holidays here the only thing they do to
celebrate is eat slightly more than usual even christmas. lu pulu is
kinda rare i didnt have any in niua they just eat fish there is an
occasional pig but here in vava'u they have pretty much whatever you
want. but lu pulu is not quite as popular as lu sipi and lu moa (lu
sheep and lu moa) everyone walks around with thier shirts off so that
law must just not be enforced. lies and the dancing and stuff are
pretty much purely ceremonial and therfore only for tourists and
royalty noone else much cares about it. good try on the translation it
actually mean im going to the lake to catch fish maybe i will grill
them later they taste much better cooked than jsut raw.

hey mommy i'm sitting here in the internet cafe one of the palangis is
talking to his parents right now and the owner is a member so we email
free so i thought i would drop you a line and see how you are doing? i
decided i should start reporting a little more on my missionary work
and a little less on the adventures of elder mayberry (though ill
still tell you a few cool stories every now and then) this week we
taught a few nonmembers but unfortunately they were all younger and
for some reason all of their parents are antimormon so we were asked
not to come back. one of the kids hasnt told his parents he is taking
the lessons he is 16 but he hasnt been able to make it to church
becuase his parents are pretty fehi'a(hateful) toward the church so
thats a but frustrating but if nothing else i get some practice
teaching my lessons. we have a lot of teachings set up this week we
are actually teaching a preacher from another religion they love
talking to palangis and just talking religion so we will head over
thursday or so i better be pretty prepared with my lessons huh?? well
i love you all
'ofalahi atu
