The big transfer week July 18th

Moce Taveuni, Cola Vina Sigatoka!
Well, transfers have come and gone and I have moved areas. I am now residing in the Sigatoka area. It is on Viti Levu and is below Nadi. Leaving Taveuni was one of the hardest moments of my mission so far. Saying goodbye the island was hard, but saying goodbye to the people was almost impossible. The members made me cake and food. And then they played the guitar and sang a lot of songs. Oh how I will miss it. I have come to love the island of Taveuni. I only had a short time to pack up, say goodbye, and leave. I took the boat to Vanua Levu, a bus to Labasa, and then a plane to Nadi Airport. On the plane I flew alone and it was really weird being alone. I have gotten so used to being with a companion.
Arriving in Nadi was like a culture shock all over again. There were white people, resorts, and lots of stores. I was way out of my comfort zone. But, I am adjusting now. My companion is Elder Johansson. He is the son of Elder Johansson (the area 70 here) and is waiting for his visa to serve in the Las Vega Nevada mission. Things have been hard recently, but I am trying my best.
I know that God answers prayers. He is all loving and cares about us. I know that the gospel doesn't only help us, but changes us to become more like Jesus Christ. I am so grateful to be here in Fiji. I miss you all but I know that I am where I am supposed to be.
