We are making great progress with our new friend Kioni though. We met him at church 2 weeks ago, he is not a member. We went to sit by him and fellowship him and he actually invited us to dinner the following Wednesday! His wife has been a huge influence in his life, encouraging him to go to church and reading the Book of Mormon with him. He is already progressing a lot! When we arrived we really hit it off! He is a professional cook and made an amazing meal for us. We talked for a good portion of the night and really broke the ice with him and his wife. They both came to church yesterday and his wife gave the talk. We even got him to come to the classes after sacrament meeting and found some ward members to be his friends. We get to take him to the visitors center this Friday and start teaching him the lessons soon! I am beyond excited for him! The Lord has already been preparing these people and it is so rewarding to meet them and to help them come closer to him.
I took a picture of this sunset as we were walking home from a family home evening lesson last week. Hawaii is so beautiful!
