I am Elder Jake Rose, and I am currently serving in the Tonga Nuka'alofa mission. I left to the MTC January 5, 2011 and will arrive back to my home in Utah in two quick years.
This is my story and the stories of the people of Tonga.

Nice little surprise!‏

Hey there everyone! So this past week elder vakameilalo was staying with us while waiting for his comp to come from the islands. Well friday we get a call from the AP's and they say my son (lauti) Is transfering and vakameilalo is my new comp. I was surprised cause that was out of nowhere. My son is great though. I miss him even though Vakameilalo is awesome too. He's hilarious. He's been out since may last year. But yeah that was a sad surprise. It's not time for transfers yet. The next one is the 18th of march. Man time flies. I can't believe february is done! So crazy to me! March 10th i'll have been in tonga for a year. It'll be weird to come home. Lifestyle is just different here haha. But anyway work was tough this past week! Every teaching we had fell through. The kid that said he needed to tell his parents he wanted to be baptized hasn't showed up again. His parents said no. Alatini went to new zealand and right now the work is just kinda stuck. Hopefully it pics back up again. But we'll see! Man it's been awhile since i've come up with a challenge. One thing i did this week was got the seminary and institute student manuals for the book of mormon and going through those and keeping a study journal for just the book of mormon and after i read a chapter in the book of mormon write what it was about and what i got out of it! So that can be your challenge i suppose! But i think that's about all for this week! I love and miss you all!
