April 9, 2012

Hey everyone,

It has been a good week. It’s good to hear from everyone and that you're all doing well. I loved your email Colin. Those 10 page papers are killer but they're good for you. I had to do one for Book of Mormon class and that was just something else. The references and the writing style that goes with it is hard to get used to at first but like you said its really easy to sit down to write it and just get lost in it. Trying to put up a statement then give evidence and so forth can be painful. Stick with it though put in the time. You know that already though. Push though you only have a couple more weeks. It’s crazy to think you've already finished a year at uni.

I have good news. I'm still here in Somerset (Ward) for at least another 6 weeks. That will be good. We're excited and we will get things moving this transfer in the area. For the overview of the week: Tuesday/Wednesday we did some good finding. School is out for a couple of weeks so we're trying to catch more people at home and get some potential investigators to work with. Thursday we had a Zone Conference in Brisbane in the morning. We wanted to save on km's by taking the train in to the city, so we could get more work done here, but it didn't happen. We got up at 4:30 am, got all dressed, but then 5 minutes before we had to leave to catch the train, my Companion realized that he had left his wallet at dinner the night before. That was disappointing. We just drove the 100 km's into the city then 100 km's back. The training was good.
Lorin Nicholson came and spoke to us (see previous post). It was really good and very uplifting. Friday we basically worked all day doing service for various Ward members and doing our weekly planning. Saturday was deep clean and mow the lawns day. By the end of the day Saturday, we were just smashed but it was good. Sunday was Easter which was good. There were a heap of people at Church.

Monday night we organized a BBQ at our place and had a fire in the backyard. It was really good. It just poured down raining right as people were showing up but then the rain moved out. We had a good little feed were able to have a good spiritual lesson around the open fire and roast some marshmallows. It was fun.

I’m really looking forward to the General Conference broadcast this weekend. In between sessions we're going with some recent converts and nonmembers to get lunch at a really good Portuguese chicken place so it will be fun. Have some other good meals lined up for the week and it should be a fun one. Thanks for the emails and prayers drive safe and stay out of trouble. Love you heaps. Talk to you next week.
