Let it Rain

Dear Family,

This week was really... wet. There was a ton of rain. It just poured
and poured and poured. All week. Nonstop. Relentlessly. It was
hilarious to see all the little kids running around having puddle

So we worked like complete beasts this week. We picked up around 9 new
investigators that all came out of working with less-actives and
recent converts. We're hoping that they're really solid, but we can't
be certain yet because they didn't come to church because... you
guessed it - RAIN.

There's one particular investigator on that mountain that Elder
Simpson and I are very excited about. His name is WillJ. He's insanely
smart. We thought he was from America or something. I guess he just
picked up English from some siblings that had lived in America. He
knew a few words but still just spoke to us in Chuukese. He totally
understands the Restoration. He feels like Joseph Smith's experience
is very similar to his experience thus far. He feels like he's very
lost. He hasn't gone to a church for a long long time because he
doesn't know which is correct. He read EVERY WORD on the Restoration
pamphlet, even commenting that some of the translation is a little bit
sketchy. Regardless, he completely understood. He pretty much taught
himself, heck, he might have even taught us some things. He really has
a desire to come to church. He might go behind his parents back. He
says he could get beat for going to church. He might do it in secret

My testimony of the gospel has grown so much as I've worked full time
for the Lord. This work is so vitally important to improve the lives
of all people - not just in Chuuk. I know that as we all strive to
participate in the work (whether that be full time or not) we can be
filled with the joy that the gospel brings. Seriously, this is the
greatest work. It's such a blessing to be an instrument in the Lord's

Love, Elder Hunter
