Road Trip

Malo e lelei Family!

It has been an amazing week!! We have seen heaps of miracles and we have a baptism this Saturday for Tekiri Morehu! She is golden and has been doing so well with the lessons. She is a single mother of 7 kids and even though she has had heaps of trials coming she is so calm about all of them. She is so positive and just loves the gospel it is so fun and such a blessing to work with her!

Also on Saturday I was getting out of the car and heard a horn beep and guess who it was!! AUNTIE SALLY and ZSARAYA!! It was so fun to see them they came down for a river float and had no way of contacting me but they just saw me by chance it is always so exciting to see my family in New Zealand!!

Sister Paulo and I had an awesome time at the conference with Elder Bednar. It was really amazing and I got heaps of answers to questions that I have had. And we got to see everyone and catch up. Elder Bednar said that we were really prepared so the conference that was supposed to be about an hour went three hours it was crazy cool but then he didn’t have time to shake our hands after so instead we got to catch up with everyone. I got to say goodbye to Elder To'ia who finishes this transfer and catch up with all my other Tongans and Sister Lamoureux it was heaps of fun! And then we had a three hour car ride back down to home long as and no music was allowed on the car ride so it was extra-long.  You know how I love music!!

Anyways I was glad to hear that Ryan did so well in his play and that my prayers are being answered and Dads work still hasn’t gone on strike!!

I love you heaps!! Oku ou fakafeta'i koe'uhi ko hoku Famili!!! Couldn’t do it without you!!

Love Sister Miggin

Leaving to see Elder Bednar

Hey Momma and Daddy

It has been an awesome week we are working hard and loving it! I dont really know what to talk about today it has just been work work work all week long helping our investigators prepare for baptism and we taught Sunday School and Relief Society yesterday. 

So I will just send pictures:)

Love you!!!


Hey Mom and Dad!!

It has been such a crazy week! I got last minute shifted to Taupo because they needed a driver down here and I think God knew I needed to leave Redoubt! It was hard to leave because I was finally starting to love it up there. For some reason I feel like I was never supposed to be there which I have never felt before in an area and so when I got transferred and rolled up to Taupo it felt like home which was so nice!

When we left Redoubt it was just Vasi and I driving down and I got permission to stop in Ngaruawahia because it is on the highway to Hamilton and so I stopped and said hi to the Waters and Auntie Savoni. It was seriously the most amazing thing ever! I cant explain the love I have for them and how much I had missed them it was what I imagine when I see you it will feel like a little bit! It was so sweet and my heart felt so full!

Transfers were good but the drive was really long we are as far south as you can go in the mission its us and then wellington mission so I literally went from the top border of the mission in redoubt by Auckland mission to the bottom! Taupo is freaking gorgeous though! We can see the beautiful lake from basically our whole area and there are hot pools like Yellowstone all over the place. Heaps of tourists!!

We set someone for baptism the second day I was here and so next month we have almost a baptism every single Saturday the 7, 14, and 28! This area is on fire it is so seriously fun to be in an alive area I have never been in one before. haha Sister Paulo is amazing I get along with her like I did with Sister Hughes... So EASY!! She is Sister Training Leader right now so we will be going on exchanges and training the newbs which is so weird! She dies at the end of this transfer though and then it will be me dying! CRAZY!!

Next week Elder Bednar is coming to speak to us so we are driving all the way back up to Auckland to my Redoubt chapel for the conference it will be our entire mission and Auckland mission I might get to see Elder Katoa for the first time since the airport! We don't get to talk to anyone or take any pictures though so I will just tell you all about it!

Anyway love you heaps!!
