Talofa lava everybody. I left Samoa yesterday and am in NZ with 'Isa'ake and family. It's the completion of 5 years teaching in Chanel College and working in the parish. Time goes so fast. It was hard to leave but had to leave. People are so generous and I did enjoy very much my years in Samoa. Luisa and our family farewelled me and was great to see the talents of singing and dancing in the family.
I would like to thank everybody for your help and prayers during my time in Samoa. Malo 'aupito Tavo for all the help especially for all the dvds that really helped me in my teaching. It did help and am glad to tell you that we had good numbers over the years going on to varsity. Some of the top students are doing well in their studies. I will leave for Tonga tomorrow for Xmas and leave on the 5th of January for a meeting in Fiji then on to Solomon Islands for my new mission. I have been there for 5 years already and am looking forward to go back again. The bishop in Samoa asked me whether my appointment to Solomon a promotion or demotion, lol. I'm looking forward to go home and spend time there with mum and the rest. I came a bit late here. Was hoping for tufi niu but Clare and Saimone already piliki. I'll catch them both in Tonga. That's all folks and may I take this opportunity to wish you all a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year. 'Ofa atu, Viko.
