Someone tried to break into the flat!!!!

Hey Family-

Things are good here in Redoubt. Things are really slow in this area ... everyone is super rich!!! My Tongan has barely gotten better I feel like but I am understanding a lot more than I speak.

Something funny that happened this week was we were walking down the street and stopped to talk to this guy at the bus stop and it was so stinking hot that I had a Restoration pamphlet out that I was fanning myself with and I asked him if he wanted one. He started fanning himself with it at first and then he opened it up and started taking a look. It was so funny, definitely one of the most random ways I have ever given a pamphlet away. He gave us his address and invited us over to teach him though so it totally worked!!

Also it was a couple of the Elders birthdays this week in the district so we made a couple cakes this week to smash in their faces it was great:)

Also someone tried to break into our flat a couple of nights ago but we were all good. I didn't even wake up Sister Vasi because the last time someone broke into the flat before I got here she chased after them and I am not about to go chasing down my companion in the dark in South Auckland after some creep even though I am pretty sure she could take them. haha

They just tried to come in the front door they were probably just drunk and got the wrong house cause we live on a whole row of identical houses

And we called the mission office and told the zone leaders and the mission office doesn't really care but the zone leaders said they are happy to sleep in their car outside our flat if it happens again they are the best!

If it happens again I am going to make Fukofuka sleep on our porch every night and let me send you a pic of how huge he is you will sleep better at night haha And he would Tongan Elders would do anything to protect a woman they were all ticked that the mission office didn't do anything about it they are like ready to take shifts haha A little over protective lol

Anyway Love you heaps!!

Love Sister Miggin

Last Transfer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kia Ora Whanau~

I got transferred this week to Redout in Manukau. We are pretty much right in the middle of South Auckland. You can see the Harbor from our area but its out of the mission. We are right on the border of the Auckland mission. And our Chapel is in the same parking lot as the MTC so pretty just made a full circle and am ending where I started.

My new companion is Sister Vasi from Idaho. She is Tongan though which is good I love my Tongan companions and she is a really hard worker so that is a bonus to! I am going to have to pick up my Tongan skills hard though because nobody speaks English up here! Mostly all the members are Tongan and there are only a couple white kids in the whole Zone they are all Tongan! And the missionaries are like on top of each other in this Zone cause it is so tiny and there are so many missionaries we usually run into about three companionships a day its crazy!! I am used to only seeing them at meetings!

Leaving Ngaruawahia was really really hard! They were so good to me there and we had so much fun with our families there before I got transferred for New Years Eve! I will miss them very much but I am in my last area most likely so it should be good! I already really like a lot of the ward members here!

Love you Heaps!!

Love Sister Miggin

Aunty Sav loves me Madre!

Hey Whanau!
It was the best Christmas this year and it was seriously the best talking with yous! Aunty Savoni has been talking about you non-stop since we called. She even talked about you in relief society yesterday! She thinks were the most amazing family! I told her you guys are my best friends and she finally understands lol
Ya Sister Hughes is getting way excited to go home! Today is her 21st birthday we hiked to the top of the Haikirimata and had a little devotional with a bunch of people in the ward it was fun to hike up with heaps of people. Then today they are throwing her a surprise party which is going to be awesome because they threw her a little party last night to throw her off. 21 is like a HUGE deal here in New Zealand its crazy!
We are working down at the Temple Lights again tonight to! I hope I survive because we woke up at 530 this morning and last time we went we didnt get home til about 1 in the morning! THATS A LONG DAY! Especially when you have to be up by 630 the next morning lol And Hughes and I always wonder why we are so tired!
I am pretty positive I am going to get transfered this week and I am getting really sad I have so much whangai whanau here! At our little devotional last night at the end of the party I really couldnt believe just how much I really love these people I dont just love them... they are family to me now! As I have been revflecting on my last few months here in Ngaruawahia we have seen so many cool things happen in this area. We have young women sharing the gospel and contemplating missions and less actives coming back to church. We have 3 investigators who want to get baptized and they have the best fellowship I am blown away thinking back on the last 6 months since I got to Ngaruawahia!
With that said knowing I am going to be heartbroken leaving Ngaruawahia I am really excited to go to my last area especially after calling home a few days ago because that just means I get to see you that much sooner! Plus if I stayed in Ngaruawahia for four more months I would never be able to leave lol I would seriously just take up permanent residence so its best that I get moved lol
I love you heaps!!

Love Sister Miggin

Aunty Sav just raves that you are the coolest mom ever lol Which i already knew but its really funny and grace said that even when I am not there that is all she has talked about all week lol

Merry Christmas! (Lots of Pictures)

Kia Ora Family!!!

It was a great week! We did lots of fun things but the only downfall is that EVERYONE is leaving for Christmas Holidays including all our investigators lol
This week we went down to the temple lights twice. On Tuesday we went down with the Young Women and Suede and Jehi and it was really good! Then we went down and proselyted there on Friday which was pretty cool I can say that I worked at the temple for a day. We were there until really late though cause people were still coming at 11pm! I am so used to going to bed early now and we had to take the Huntly Sisters home after we didn’t get home till after 1230! I was soooo dead tired the next day when we woke up at 630 I was like a zombie all day!
I hope you saw the fish brains video Aunty Sally said she posted it to you! IT WAS SOOOOO GROSS!!! Definately the worst thing I have eaten on my mission! I think the next was Kina and then Horse just because of the moral of it lol Oh boy!
We also went caroling with the Morgan family last night which was really cool! Our last house we took some baby clothes to this young mom and sang her a song and she was so grateful and excited it was super cool!
We had mission conference this week on Tuesday during the day! It was ALL DAY LONG! It was so good though they split us up into different groups than our companions and I was in Sister Lamoureoux's group which was so fun! We had a great catch up!

Love you all heaps!!
