So transfers are this week and so I am not sure who my comp will be or where I will be by the time that I email again haha! My P day will be on Tuesday this next week instead of Monday too so just a heads up! I will let you all know what happens and where I am next week in emails!

Monday- We had a glorious P day spent hiking around at Bass Point in our area! We found a cool little bay that we walked too and we got to play some ultimate Frisbee on the beach! Then after that we got to go to got to Pat and Lez's house for a good dinner and a lesson!

Tuesday- Spent the first part of the day getting Elder Foa'i some much needed supplies and what not. Then we went and did some tracting and we didn't have much success and everyone wasn't interested but all is well! Then we got to go to the Roach's house for some dinner and it was delicious as usual and we had a good night there!

Wednesday- We had a doctors appointment in Wollongong for my companion because he has a broken wrist that never healed from back at home! He is going to have to get surgery where they re break the bones and set them so they heal properly so we will go back again in a couple weeks and work everything out! Then after that we went straight into some tracting and we had no luck but it was good to be out working! Then we went and had a lesson with Byron and we taught him the rest of the commandments! He is looking great for baptism! We just have to set a new date with him because he wants to have a day where all his family can be there! Then we went and taught Brendon and he is doing good and reading the Book of Mormon and we just need to get him to come to church! Then we went and had FHE but no one really came so we just had it with the missionaries and Sister Tyson! Then we had MCM and splits! We went and saw Sister Pickles with Bro. Hewson who is our home teaching companion!

Thursday-We did our weekly planning in the morning and it was good! Then we went out and did some tracting for a few hours. After tracting we went to go and see Klaus but he wasn't home! So then we went and had some dinner and the guy we bought food from gave us a free litre of coke so that was nice of him, and a blessing haha! Then we went to the chapel to make up Rob's baptismal program and after messing up numerous times we finally got it made right and I was able to calm down haha I was getting heated from messing up so many times haha!

Friday- We had a great DTM meeting and we got trained on our purpose as missionaries and it was awesome! Then we went and did finding and I was with Elder Densley for trade offs and while tracting we got to teach a JW lady at her door but she wouldn't accept our message or even let us say a prayer with her at her door haha! Then we went and had district lunch with everyone and it was a good time! After that we went and tried to see Klaus again but he wasn't home... again! So we got to do some tracting instead :) Then we went to see Paul Souris and his family which was awesome because they had a non member friend over at their house and he was full of questions so we got to teach him the Restoration and it was so awesome! The spirit was so strong and I just felt great after! Then we went saw Robert and Nicola. Rob got interviewed for his baptism and he passed of course!

Saturday- It was a full on day! We got to help out at the primary activity in the morning which was water games and it was so fun! After that was over we had to quickly clean the chapel, rush home and shower/change, then go back to the chapel for the baptism! The baptism went so solid! Rob was smiling from ear to ear the whole time it was incredible! The spirit that was there was truly amazing! After the baptism we had a surprise party for Keiran at the chapel too so we had to set up for that and get things ready and we spent the rest of the night there for that and cleaning up after the party!

Sunday- The confirmation of Robert was so awesome! I got to confirm him and I truly felt something special while doing it! I felt the Spirit working through me and I felt the power of the priesthood! He was teary eyed after and he told me that he felt something during that, that he had never felt before! It was special! Then we went and did finding after all our church meetings and we got to go and see Klaus finally and give him a blessing! It was a solid day!

My spiritual thought is about baptism, it is found in Moroni 6:4, "And after they had been received unto baptism,and were wrought upon and cleansed by the power of the Holy Ghost, they were numbered among the people ofthe church of Christ; and their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the goodword of God, to keep them in the right way, to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone uponthe merits of Christ, who was the author and the finisher of their faith."

Baptism is an essential ordinance to enter into the Kingdom of God, and living up to that covenant is also important for entry. As we rely upon the merits of Christ and nourished by the Good word, we are able to have strength to continue on this path that leads to our Father in Heaven.

Love you all have a good week!
