Tarwedelaplapin Mama!
First of all: All the missionaries from Tanna say thank you for the package!!!! That's right, the new missionaries that came in for transfer brought the package to me, and it was all finished within the hour... haha.  THANK YOU SO MUCH for the lollies!!! I miss American candy soo much! I miss licorice like twizzlers and sours and real chocolate! haha I taught my companion how to roast starbursts on the fire and she is obsessed! She saved a stash of starbursts and would roast 2 every morning and talk about how cool it was. Oh man, full up good times here! haha. But yes, thank you soo  much!! And we loved the church news and book as well!! :) Thank you too much!
It sounds like life back home is crazy as usual. Mother on the go go go all the time.  I am sure you miss your boss!! ;) haha.  Mase is getting sooo big!!! Owiee I barely even recognized him!! He is so cute!! Tell Benny congrats about scouts and I sent him a little message! :) But I am not sure if you are in New York or not, but if you are...don't get blown up... you crazies...Out of all of the places in the world you choose to go to the most dangerous!! I hope you all have a great time though!! :)
This week has been kinda crazy! We had transfers and my companion and I stop in White Sands still! I am so glad!!! I LOVE THE BRANCH!!! We have been having full up activities go go all the time to get everyone involved in the branch and it is so fun! So this intake we got full up Utah Elders! Every elder on the island is training a white elder! It has been really...interesting! haha. But anyway! We had a baptize yesterday! These two cute twins Namia wetem Nalia got baptize! They are both 10 and the cutest things ever! The missionaries before were teaching them but stopped because the boys kept running away.  My companion and I worked really hard..and used a lot of lollies to make friends with them and yesterday it all paid off! They really understand the gospel so much! It was amazing!! I LOVE MISSIONARY WORK! Last night the Elders came and got us and we are staying close up to the airport until we fly out for Villa on Wednesday. Zone conference is this thursday and you will never guess what... I got a call from the APs last week, and guess who is giving the zone training? This sista.....I think I am going to be sick...Of course they choose the new white girl who cant speak Bislama well to stand up and give training to the missionaries! Haha.  Blessingya! But on the bright side, when Heavenly Father calls us to do something he also qualifies us.  As I have been preparing for training he has been helping me too much! Am I still going to turn bright red and sweat? You bet! But Heavenly Father needs me to do this and so I am going to suit up and make it happen! On the bright side afta I am going to eat fullup icecream in Villa! Party in the town with flushing toilets and maybe even some running water!!!
The work is moving here in white sands! We  have 7 people that are waiting to receieve baptize when we get back from Villa! We are working hard gogo! I am soo happy!! Heavenly Father really has been blessing me too much! He definitely looks out for all of his missionaries!
Funny bathroom story: I am sure you are sick of these: So my companion and I were going to the toilet late one night.  She was standing outside holding the torch while I went into the toilet.  It was really really dark but all of the sudden these two fat cockroaches fell on me, I jolted and sungout and I fell off the toilet.  10 seconds later after I had already gotten back up and everything my companion casually says, "Oiee Sister Brown, are you alright, or did you fall in?" haha. Got to love the toilets here! :) 

I hope you all have an amazing week!! :) Lavem yufala everyone!! :)

Editors Note:  I am leaving her letter as it was, bad English and all.  I think it's kind of endearing:).  Hope you can still read it.


  1. I am LOVING the "bad" English. She sounds like one of the islanders already!

  2. Super fun to see this! We serve on the island of Malekula and hope Sister Brown ends up in our area some day.
