Teaching Ramon

Ramon is deaf and he is freakin awesome! He is one of my favorite people in Chuuk. He is a super good guy, he is 26 years old. He is the hardest worker ever, every funeral if he is related to them or not he is always there helping. Clean up their land and picking mia (bread fruit) and preparing the food, he is freakin good at everything. He can climb a coconut tree faster than anyone and he is super strong. He is so good at pounding bread fruit it is crazy, super fun to watch. He can get a knife/machete so sharp it is crazy. I always give him mine to get it perfect.
We have been teaching Ramon ever since I first got here. But he kinda just does his own thing, and you can never find him when you want to find him, and when you are not looking for him he always shows up. But we teach him as much as we can. Trying to help him to understand everything it was way fun. We would have to act everything out and be all over the place, it was way fun, really interesting. Ramon is super smart and he understands everything super good. We had Ramon scheduled to be baptized June 29, and that Friday before we went up to his house to check up on him. We found out that he was growing a bunch of little marijuanna plants. We were super bummed because we didn't think that he could be baptized that week. We told him to meet us at the church in a little bit, when he got there we taught him why it was bad to grow weed. And he had no idea that it was bad. Once he knew that it was bad he said right when he gets home he was going to destroy it. 
So when the zone leaders came out for district conference we got one of them to interview him and he was ready to go. The next day the 29th of June we had an awesome baptism! Of course he wanted me to baptize him, it was sweet. I love that kid. He is going to be the best member ever. I think that he will get the priesthood next week, that will be so sweet, he will pass the sacrament every week. 
Last week one of my recent converts got the aaronic priesthood. Atong you remember him right he was the younger one of the two that I baptized, Bigman and Atong. It is so sweet that he got it, I was so stoked when he asked me, when he could get the priesthood. This week him and Forwin passed the sacrament, it was super sweet.
Another one of Elder Huppies recent converts Sixinson also received the priesthood this Sunday! Its super cool for all of these boys to get the priesthood. We are going to bring them with us to take the sacrament to people, it will be sweet.
I love it here more and more everyday! The time is flying by! I hope everyone is doing good. I love you all so much.

Love Elder Hunter
