March 21 – 27 Got power?

Actually, I can only write about Monday through Wednesday, but thought I better post something tonight before the power goes out.  We’ve had brown, foul water this week, and now we will have a five day blackout.  The water problem is fixed – hooray.  Now we just need a bunch of batteries and candles.

Fiji Electricity Authority CEO Hasmukh Patel said they will be carrying out an important change to the Main Inlet Valve at the Wailoa Power Station.  Mr. Patel said the valve that is currently installed is more than 30 years old and needs to be changed (at a cost of $4.5 million).  It will obviously be good to have the new valve, only unfortunate it will be during Good Friday, all the Easter services, and “Easter Monday,” when school is out.

Tuesday’s class went well.   These YSAs are the best.  Elder Whitehead asked them what they would like us to talk to Elder Johansson about.  They said: a bigger institute, more activities, and a YSA ward.IMG_1960.jpg

After meeting with Elder Johansson this morning, it looks like a larger building will be rented somewhere, hopefully nearer one of the colleges, a stake president has been asked to coordinate the tri-stake YSA activities, and we will work together on an Institute Advisory Council.  We hope to organize an LDSSA also.  YAY!

It’s time to turn out the lights, and we may not see them again until next Tuesday.  In the meantime, Happy Easter!  What a sacred, special time of the year.  We are so thankful for the Savior Jesus Christ, for his atoning sacrifice and resurrection. We hope (those of you with electricity in your lives) that you will take the opportunity to watch and listen to this incredible video:
