Well I don't have too much time today so I will give a quick recap of my week!
Monday- We had a normal P day and just went and bummed around the mall after emailing! Then we went to the Mackie's house to teach them since they are less active and then we went to another less active member and taught her a lesson as well!
Tuesday-Such an awesome day! We had Elder Gifford Nielsen from the seventy come to our zone conference! He gave an awesome training and is such a good guy! I was so pumped up after his training and just super motivated! He played QB for BYU and changed the game of football because they threw more than any other team! We talked a lot about Alma 17-27 so I encourage you to read it! Then we took the train home and had dinner and went to bed haha!
Wednesday- We went and helped a member move a dish washer and then after that went to visit Brooke our investigator and we just had a good conversation with her and left a Book of Mormon with her to read! Then after that we went to our ward mission leader's house (the Tianangas) and we had dinner and then went on splits for the night! We visited a part member family in the ward and just visited them to see how they were doing!
Thursday- We went to visit a potential but he wasn't home so we went and saw our man Kieran, who is the kid Elder Yardley baptized when he was here! He was feeling down that day so we cheered him up and shared a scripture with him! He is the man and so it was good to see him! Then we went and saw the Macgreggor family who is pretty weird and crazy hahaha and we shared a message with them! After that Smith got sick so we went home and let him rest for the rest of the night!
Friday- We went and taught Brooke the Restoration and man it went so good! She had a lot of questions and so that made it a lot of fun! Then we went and Rebecca Sloan who is a LA in the ward! After that we went and taught a daughter of a part member family and we just read the child Book of Mormon with her! She is only 7 but will be getting baptized when she turns 8! After that we went to teach our two investigators Rob and Nichola and it went solid! We taught the rest of the Plan of Salvation to them and the Spirit was so strong!! Rob also told us that the blessing of healing that we gave him worked and that his knee felt better! That was so cool to hear! Solid lesson and night overall!
Saturday- Pretty slow day! We started off by teaching Sue Waters at sister Clough's house and that went good! Then we went and did some tracting and less active visits and we had zero luck haha! Then we went to the Amone's house and had dinner with them! Brother Amone is married to a less active member of the church and he loves the missionaries and he looks out for us so that is sick!
Sunday- We had church and taught the Gospel Principles class! Then after church we had ward council! After that we had lunch and then did some LA visits to finish off the day and then we cam home and got all the weekly numbers from the district and the zone!
Monday- happy Birthday to the Queen of England! Australians take any chance they can get for a day off haha! We went to do service for sister Knoles but she already had it done so we just had a good chat with her! Then we went to the Tiananga's house for a BBQ with them and another family in the Ward! It was a lot of fun and their son Paki is so sick haha! Then we went and taught the Macgreggors again and the lesson was alright haha they are just pretty strange! Then we went to teach sister Rateni's husband who is a non member! We showed him the video Safety for the Soul by Jeffery R Holland and it was so good! He felt the power in the message and admitted it to us!
My spiritual message for the week is about Repentance! When we repent it means to turn away from sin and to try your best to never do it again! It is to have a change of mind! As we repent our views of everything change and we become new creatures through Christ! Love you guys!
