We got "Honorable Almami" to church

Good to hear from you. Sorry today I don't have a lot of time. The internet cafe was really full today. I have one pretty good story.
So Elder Latu received a referral this week from some other missionaries. We met with the man, found out his family lives in the u.s. and he moves back and forth. We could tell he wasn't the same as all the rest of the people here, he has been americanized, but that is just to our benefit. So it was a pretty usual thing, we committed him to baptism, gave him a Book of Mormon, and invited him to church.

So Sunday rolls around and this man (Almami) shows up to sacrament meeting. When he walks in everyone starts greeting him and saying hello to him. At firstI thought that the branch decided to actually greet new people as they came in. Even in the announcements they welcomed Almami. So after a while of watching some of this go on, I find out from one of the members that he is an "honorable". That means that he is one of the big guys in the government. It's like we just got Obama to church... hahaha!  So ends up we got "honorable Almami" to church on Sunday and he is progressing in the gospel.
I am doing well. I hope every thing is going well at  home. I am sure it is. Sorry this is short.
