I have to give a shout out to Elder Jackson serving down in Sydney South. Last week he emailed me a referral of a guy that he street contacted in Canberra who lives in Brisbane. So, right after we shopped last week, I contacted the referral and turns out that he lives really close to Sunny bank and he is super interested. He is really busy with stuff, but he really wants to meet us this week or next, so that could be a solid potential miracle. So if all goes as planned then you can credit Elder Jackson with the assist! That pretty much made my week and I think that it was so awesome! So thanks bro!
Also this week, I solved a major problem. Every night, I can hardly get any sleep because I am just so hot. It gets up to like 30 degrees at night here sometimes. That is Celsius too haha. Anyway, I always would wake up super tired and it was never good. But, yesterday I had the brilliant idea to actually just sleep with my fan. It has been something that I have been thinking about doing for the past week or two now, but it just all came together yesterday when I found out that there is an outlet right by my bed. So I guess it's true that they say revelation comes over a period of time. Hahah but last night I slept with the fan and I slept much better. Hahah so that's kind of a funny story!
Other than that, this week has been really good and we've been doing a lot of good teaching. Unfortunately, everyone is going home for the summer holiday and we're going to have to basically create a new teaching pool until they all get back haha. It'll be great though, I'm excited to hit the pavement! Have a great week!
Hey!! Our Thanksgiving was pretty good! It was funny, at personal study on Friday, I thought that would be about the time that you guys would be starting your Thanksgiving feast! So that was kind of a weird thought and it was really weird not to be there, but it's okay! I'm doing great and we had some spagetti and garlic bread for dinner on that day which was pretty solid! haha so no worries! I have not gotten the Thanksgiving package yet, but we talked to the zone leaders yesterday via phone and they said that they have two packages for me, so that sounds pretty promising! Should the Christmas one be here yet? How will I know not to open it? Hahah anyway, my companion is a convert to the church of 2 years. None of his family are members, but they really support him in coming out here. He always has plenty of people to email and they are sending him things, so no worries! His mom also thinks that it's a great opportunity for him to learn English haha. Anyway, his story is kind of just that. He met the missionaries and learned about the church and was baptized about two years ago. He loves the BoM and he really knows his scriptures well. So he was definitely very prepared to come out here, even though he is just a recent convert! Also, yeah everyone leaves for the summer break this week. Recently, we have been doing heaps of teaching, but now it is all going downhill. In about a week our teaching pool will be very limited. We are really working hard to find new investigators, but it's pretty tough cause a lot of them are just here for working holiday from taiwan and they are kind of traveling all over Australia and don't have any specific times they can meet. Anyway, we are trying new things and constantly trying to improve so that we can continue to teach! Also, Jason our miracle investigator, basically agrees with every single commandment we have taught him about. Even Fasting! He came to church 3 consecutive times since we started with him and he flies home today. We are going to get back in contact with him when he gets back and we have given him a way to go to church in Shanghai. So that should be good. It's kinda hard that we did all that and we're not even sure he'll ever be baptized. But we are confident that we did all that we could and now we can only hope until February!
I'd love to see the Christmas card! Also, yeah that story was pretty crazy hahah. Yeah the G2's are Pilot and they're pretty solid! Hahah but yeah I'd love some black ones! Also, the hat, I'd just love something that has a nice brim and stuff. So kinda like the stuff grandpa wears, but not that heavy haha. Just something to keep the sun off! I should be okay though! Yeah, I'm starting to realize that I'll regret being sunburnt, so I'm working on that! Hahah no I'm not, so no worries! Thanks so much for the email, I love to hear from you! Have a great week!
