I'm doing great here on Tarawa. First off to answer your questions Kakai is a girl. She's really cool, we had dinner with her family last Sunday. They're all really great her uncle just got released as a counselor in the branch presidency. I guess that answers your other question, we just have a branch in our area but hopefully it will soon be a ward.The members we have are awesome they feed us all the time and are really good about finding us people to teach. I don't really know how to describe Tarawa, it's hot all the time, They call the towns here villages. They are all mostly really small and they just kind of flow into each other, but my area is really spread out it's like small pockets of houses quite some distance apart. There are a few people here who speak English but even if they're really good they are to shy to use it. The language is going really slowly but I'm working at it and Elder Rameka has been really great at working with me. I've already had a ton of cool and interesting experiences. I wish I was fast enough to write them all here but I'll be sending a letter probably on Wednesday. It's been hard to find time to write so its taken me a while. I'm glad to hear that everyone doing well, tell Matthew Durrant congratulations from me that's awesome. I'm not sure what to write all the interesting stuff is in the letter I wrote. Like I said I'm doing really well. We have some great people we're teaching, there's one kid named Atuti who's been awesome. We met him just this week and he already has a baptismal date. He came to church on Sunday so I'm way exited about him. Well I'm sorry this is so short I hope you all continue to do well I love you all and thank you for all your prayers in my behalf.
Love, Elder Norton
