ONE VOICE in LONG BEACH
ONE VOICE in ANAHEIM
This weekend has been amazing, especially sunday being the beginning and new start with ONE VOICE, and I figured for me to. I haven't been as active as I should be, but having the opportunity with a new beginning has been a blessing. Yesturday the choir had the blessing to sing 2 musical numbers at the singles ward and if you haven't heard the choir its truly amazing not because I'm in it but seriously the spirit is just amazing, and the lives in which I've seen change from being a part of the choir is the best feeling ever. So after we had sang we headed on over to Mark & Stacy's house to make our chicken wraps for the opening of our fast, we had so much fun chillen at Mark's house this is what I missed so much about the choir was just being with them and laughing and reminsing about the good 'ol days all that came to the house was: Lupi, Mele Tangulu, Lela Utuone, Masi, Daisy, Lopa, and me it was just soo much fun. We got to the chapel at about 5:30 p.m. And we started about 6 pm and we started off with introducing ourselves and games omg sooo much fun, to break the ice then we had Anya Pasi give the spiritual thought OMG this girl is just amazing she started off the crying session, we then went around our room to express our most memorable feelings and testimony, man I had the urge to just express my feelings on how much I've been struggling and all I'm sooo THANKFUL for this group of people and of course my family and friends that have seriously helped me choose to come back and see the light. We've played a couple of games instead of practicing just so that everyone could feel comfortable around each other. We finally finished all that and went and got started eating and whatnot, then afterwards we had got together to fk ma'u our au kai and Lupi had the blessing to do that, omg her prayer was truly amazing I'm totally excited for what the Lord has in store for me I just need to work towards it. I had exchanged numbers with one of the guys in the choir he's sooo amazing I had got home and received a text from him.

Love the choir, Love my family, and truly LOVE those who I have come in contact with...here's to getting back on the spiritual side:)!!
