Monday- we only had a 1/2 pday that was pretty good! We just did emailing and got our shopping done and then we went and did some tracting! After tracting we went and taught Kieran about the priesthood because he was getting ordained an Elder this Sunday! The lesson went good and we found a good potential while we were leaving his house haha so we will see how that goes! Then I had to take a train with Elder Bradley to Mortdale for Tradeoffs with the Ap's! We got there late and so we just planned for our day and then went to bed!

Tuesday- I was on trade offs with Elder Murphy who is from England! He is the man and we had a good day working together! We went to follow up on a potential who was Muslim and we tried to teach her but her husband wouldn't allow it. Then we went and did some tracting! After that we had lunch and then went right out to do some street contacting. We don't do too much street contacting in Dapto because there isn't really any good places to do it haha so I was rusty at first but then I just jumped into it and I wasn't scared! I was talking to everyone and just stopping people on the road and even walking with people while they just kept going haha it was fun as! Then after that we went and did some more tracting before our appointment and it was good! Then after our appointment we had, Elder Bradley and I went back to Dapto via train which was good! I learned heaps from the tradeoff and I was so stoked to just use it all in my area!

Wednesday- We had MCM in the morning followed by some lunch! Then we went and saw Sister Fisher who we haven't seen in awhile and it was a really good visit! After that we went and did some tracting and we found some potentials which was a blessing so we will follow up on them this week! Then we went and saw Klaus which was pretty good! Then we went to splits and we tried to visit a less active member but he was not home so we went home after that and had dinner!

Thursday- Had a good morning of doing some service for a potential we found! Then on the drive home we saw an old lady mowing her lawn so we stopped and told her we would mow it for her so we did! Then we went home and had some lunch and got changed to do some tracting! After tracting we did service for Jared and also had some dinner with him and his wife! The funny part of service was Elder Foa'i fell into this nasty creek with sewage water in it hahahaha I was laughing so hard! Then we went home and did language study for my soa!

Friday- Had ZTM which was really good! I trained on fortifying ourselves against temptation and the whole meeting was really good! After the meeting we had zone pday where we went to the park and grilled up some bangers (sausages) and had a nice lunch with everyone and we got to play some games with the zone! Then that night we had a lesson with Robert and Nicola where we just watched the Testaments movie with them and they loved it! They are both doing so good and they are progressing heaps!

Saturday- We did a little bit of finding in the morning and then we travelled up to Campbelltown for stake conference! We had Elder Leota of the area presidency there and it was awesome to hear his training and all the other talks that were given! That night we got to stay in some other Elder's flat and it was so fun because Elder Iino was in that flat! It was good to see him again!

Sunday- We went to Stake conference in the morning and it was packed! We sat way in the back right behind a young couple who had the two cutest kids and I couldn't stop watching the kids and playing with them haha! All of us elders who were sitting behind them were all just day dreaming about marriage hahaha the fact that someone was giving a talk on the temple didn't help either haha! Other than that though Stake conference was really solid! It was good to hear from the temple president and his wife and also from President Back! When we got home from Stake conference we went to follow up on a potential and she wasn't home so we went and saw Keiran and then we did our weekly planning finally!

"Faith is a strong conviction about something we believe—a conviction so strong that it moves us to do things that we otherwise might not do. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see"

My mission has helped me gain a solid faith in the Lord Jesus Christ! I know that he lives and that he loves us! I have felt the power of His Atonement and the change it has wrought in my life. I have become converted to Him and His Gospel through my mission and I can say without a doubt that I KNOW the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one and only true church on the Earth today. I have gained this faith by praying, studying the Gospel, going to church, and living the Gospel! It is the little things that help us to increase our faith and turn our belief into a sure knowledge. Love you all have a good week!
