I Ran Out of Time

Jared's e-mail this week was kind of short. He said he ran out of time. But here's a little of what he did share.

He said that the missionary work is going OK, and that they are working as hard as they possibly can. He said that they get referrals from the other ward(Hoolehua) for people in their area (Kaunakakai).

He said that he and Elder Taylor get along/work together very well and that they try to have an appropriate amount of fun too. He said that the other two missionaries, Elder Maybon and Elder Hanks are both way nice and they are very funny. So Jared feels like things are going pretty good there on Molokai. He said that it's hard work but that it's rewarding!

He said that they have 2 progressing investigators who have committed to baptism and that one of them has a date!

He said that one fun thing about living there is that almost everybody there speaks Pigin English to some degree. He said that he loves it! He says that he's picked up on some of it, and that he may just come back speaking some. Wouldn't that be exciting!

This is a quote from Jared: "Ho brah that shoyu chicken stay cherry! Pass me da dakine so I can have some grines! We got choke grines at de luau's here brah."

I have no idea what it means. I looked for a Pigin English translator, but couldn't find one. I guess that's a good question for Jared's next e-mail from home.

It sounds like he's doing well.

  1. Well, I got "brau", and I know what a luau is. "Cherry" used to mean perfect but who knows what it means in Pigin. The rest is a complete mystery!
