We are enjoying visiting with members of the branch in their homes. Most have very little but they are very happy. Another opportunity to help has come up. One 11 year old boy is having trouble in school because of a lack of language skills and we think I can help him by having him read to me. I hope to do this while Judy is teaching piano.
Here is President Kinikini and his children, Tim, and Moni. Tim just turned 16 and was ordained a priest last week. Moni is 14 and they are both seminary students. Sister Paula Carpenter had us over for dinner last Monday. She is a widow of just over a year. She is very faithful and was just called to be Relief Society President and is our choir director.
Saturday we watched a Rugby game that some of our adult member participated in. They were on both teams. It is hard to follow some of these games as they have two different styles of Rugby which are very similar but have some very different procedures in moving the ball down the field. President Kinikini plays on the green team but today he was recovering from an injury.
The boy shown here Taufa Kinikini, the youngest son of our branch president and was baptized Saturday by his newly ordained brother. I was privileged to stand in when he was confirmed. What a beautiful family. His aunt Eleni is behind him.
Maui has his arm around his little brother, Taufa, waiting for the luncheon to begin fallowing the baptism. Maui is 10 and quite a fine young man. They both play rugby and Maui is on an all star team.
