March 12, 2012


Sounds like things are very busy. It’s good to hear you're all doing well. I'm keeping you in my prayers.

It was a good week. We didn't have a whole lot scheduled going into the week but we found things to keep us busy and worked well. We smashed km's (kilometers) this week but hopefully the Mission President will be raising our allotment so we can get around better and see more people. We didn't have very many lessons this last week but we did find several good potentials and we've set up times to come back and see them later next week. It’s been good. We've been getting fed well and the mornings are getting cooler so fall is just around the corner which will be a change. In the last week we’ve had clear skies and lot of sun. It’s been nice. We've been really blessed in the last week with people to see, potential investigators and good weather. This last Saturday we spent most of the day doing service for various Ward members. At 7am we were at one of our home teaching families and we helped the single Sister cut her trees and hedges. We were at that until around 11am then we had to go help an 80 year old Sister mow her yard and whipper-snipper it. It was 2pm be the time we got home and we were just wasted. All the same though, we had to keep going. Our lawn had to be cut so we spent the rest of the afternoon until dinner cutting the lawn at our house. By the end of the day we were so tired. I can't even explain it. At least now all the paddocks are cut and we should be good for another month at least. I love service. It’s a great thing. I'll attach some pictures of cutting our paddock as well last week.

It was something else. No we didn't run into too many snakes. Our P-day project for today is to build a fire pit. It’s legal to have fires here in the country as long as they're just small so we're going to build a pit and have BBQ's later in the week when we don’t have a dinner date; tin foil dinners and so for. It should be fun. We're excited.

We have a busy week to come; training in Ipswich Thursday, next Tuesday training in Ipswich again, and then a Temple trip next Wednesday. I won’t have P-day next Monday, it will be next Wednesday. I won’t email until late Wednesday or even Thursday…just have to see how we go.

Have fun at uni Colin. I was very sad to hear that my phone was broken (Colin broke Kiefer’s phone)… just saying.. lol. Have fun, work hard. We’ll talk to you soon. Thanks for everything. Love you heaps.
