week one of transfers

Tuesday- We went to the War Memorial here in Canberra with all the elders from the zone and just bummed around there for the day. Then to end the night we went to institute which went good! There hasn't been as much people lately because it is footy season so they all go to that. Once the season finishes there will be more people though.

Wednesday- We went and visited Komiti in the morning because he just hurt his foot in his footy game so we thought we would share a good pick me up message with him. He will be back in like 6 weeks once his foot heals so he was happy he didn't have to get surgery. After that we went and helped out Zac and his family with some painting in his house. We had to do a lot of sanding and I think most of it ended up in my eyes and not the floor hahaha! After that we went to the Clark's house for our MCM and dinner. We were able to discuss a lot of new ideas and focus in on some of the people we have been working with. Then we went down to the southside to try and see some people but we had not luck..

Thursday- We were pretty slammed this day! We went and saw Jordan in the morning and had a solid lesson with him about repentance and moving forward! Then we went to Focus at ANU and we were able to have a lesson with one of the students afterwards which went pretty good but he didn't agree with some of the stuff we taught but its all good all we can do is teach and invite people to pray about it and learn for themselves. Then we went home and did some weekly planning real quick. Then we went all the way down to the south side again to meet with the YSA parents in the Tuggeranong ward. Then we came back up for Dinner with Bro. Ormsby from Macarthur ward! He is down here for work so he took us out to dinner so it was good to catch up with him and what not. Then we went to Bro Loney's house to introduce Elder Hunt to him and what not.

Friday- DTM was really good as usual! We had to jet out of there afterwards to go and teach Tinnai. We got to teach her about the Book of Mormon and we set her on Baptismal date for the 28th of April!! It was a good break through lesson with her! Then we had to go and do some song practice with the zone for the fireside we were going to sing at later in the week on Sunday. We went and did some contacting at UC after that which was good and we got to teach Alicia again with Megan. We had a good lesson about the P.O.S. and she wanted to come to church! We went and made some dinner after that and went and visited the YSA parents in the Belconnen ward.

Saturday- There was a huge sale at this place called Vinnies (basically a DI) and we went and volunteered at it with Bro. Loney and it was so dang fun haha! We got to work on the registers which was super fun, reminded me of the glory days working at Rumbi! After that we went and had a lesson with David Dwyer about over coming temptations and things of the world! Then we tried to do some stop bys but no one was home. To end the night we went to Chris Stubbs farewell open house at the chapel which was good because he has a lot of non member friends! Jordan was there too so we got to talk to him some more which was good! 

Sunday- I got to give a talk in Belconnen ward about coming to know God and Jesus Christ and why it is important! It was a good topic I had so much to say about it but could only say a little bit haha:) 20 minutes flys when you are up there talking! Jack came to Belco ward which was super good! We went to Ginninderra Ward after that and Alicia came to church! Tinnai text us during church and she said she didn't set an alarm and accidentally slept way too long haha so she didn't make it sadly but she will come next week! After church we went and taught Jack about some of the commandments and it was well received. Then to end the night there was a RC fireside at the chapel and the whole zone was the choir for it so we sang a few songs and listened to some good talks by recent converts! Alicia was able to come too which was awesome!!

One of the ways to know God better is through love! 

1 John 4:7-9

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
I know that God loves us and as we learn to love others we will come closer to Him and our relationship with Him will grow! I love you all have a good week :)
