You will get the title to my email a little later...

Tuesday- We had Pday and we went and played golf as a flat! It was just a little pitch and put course but it was good fun! After that Elder Hunt and I went to MCM/dinner at the Clarks house which went really good! 

Wednesday- We met with Alex and discussed some more questions she had. She was thinking about dropping us and not taking the lessons but we basically just told her to please give us a chance haha and we invited her to church to see what it is like. Then we went and met with the Sekona family who has heaps of YSA in their family and it was a really spiritual lesson with them! After that we tried to go and visit a few more people but no one was home sadly haha. One of the YSA took us to dinner before institute which was sweet haha. Then we went to institute and we played volleyball afterwards with everyone because heaps of people showed up! 

Thursday- We played some basketball in the morning with some of the less active YSA boys which was a good time for us to connect. Then we went and visited Komiti and had a good lesson with him and his younger cousin. After that we went and met with Taylor Rossel and had a good lesson with him and his parents. He always arm wrestles new missionaries and so he challenged us and I thought I was gonna win but..... yeah moving on hahaha. We had MCM at Bretts house with the other missionaries and we got to update him on all the LA's we are working with. Then we went and did some of our weekly planning

Friday- DTM in the morning went really well, we learned about asking inspired questions. Then we went and did finding for the rest of the afternoon and we got shut down so much it was insane hahaha it was rejection after rejection for us! We had a good laugh at it though. Now comes the best part of the week!!! President Back gave the whole zone permission to go to a professional rugby game!! We went and watched the Canberra Raiders vs. Manly Sea Eagles! It was a sick game!! Holy cow I can't even tell you how much fun it was and how good the game was! It went into overtime and everything! We got some of the YSA boys to come too and we one of the Ward mission leaders and another member come along to be our chaperones haha! Far out it was the coolest experience ever! We all lost our voices by the end haha. 

Saturday- Had a quick service in the morning and then we bussed down to the bottom of our area to go and see someone but they weren't home so we ended up tracting instead. We got told we weren't real Christians by some born again guy and so that was crack up haha. Then we came back up to the north side and did our weekly planning and had dinner! 

Sunday- Alex came to church which was so good! The Gospel principles lesson was on the apostasy and restoration which was perfect! She said she really enjoyed church so that was good! The rest of church went good for the day. Then we went to go and see Ephrim and he invited us to stay for dinner so we did and it was solid. We had a good lesson with him and his family. 

My spiritual thought for the week comes from Alma 38:9

"And now, my son, have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness."

There is no other way that we can get to Heaven. No matter how hard we try and no matter how good we are, we will always fall short. Luckily for us Christ has already paid the debt in full. Through Him we are able to find new life, light and strength. The first principle of the Gospel is Faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement for a reason, it is the only way that we can find true happiness and be saved from our sins. I know this is true with all my heart!
