March 25, 2012


Good to hear from you sound like you’re doing well. The Temple was good. It’s definitely a blessing to get to go. The session we attended was full to capacity. Six Missionaries turned up about 15 minutes before it started and they just couldn't get in. Normally our sessions are mostly just missionaries but we had some randoms show so I guess that’s why it was busier. It was good; it’s just a long train into and out of the city (Brisbane).

It’s been a good couple of days. We've been working with a number of less active members and are in the process of going thru the Ward list and contacting those people that we don’t know just to try to clear up the Ward list and to get it updated right. It has been keeping us busy. We've been doing a fun spiritual thought with the families that have a lot of kids. Its goes something like this. We take the two parents and they stand on either side of a skateboard. The kid stands, blindfolded, on the skateboard and puts his hands on either parent’s shoulders. We, the Missionaries, then pick the skateboard up about six inches off the ground and the parents bend their knees. The kids feel like they're way in the air and start squirming around. Just after that we tip them off the board. Some do a dive, others freak out, but it’s funny when they realize that they were, in reality, only a couple inches off the ground. It’s been fun. We've used that to relate to Helaman 5:12 but it is not too hard to find other scriptures to tie into the lesson.

In the coming week it is looking like it will be busy and we have a dinner every night which is great. Ward Council is this Thursday and Saturday will be a Stake Sport Day at a big sporting center in our area. We're looking forward to it. Free lunch...can’t say no to that one. We'll be inviting heaps of people...anyone we can, lol. It'll be good. Sorry for the short email, I'll try to do something crazy next week. Maybe have something cool to talk about; all is good still. Have a good week. Enjoy General Conference we won’t get the broadcast until the 14th and 15th. Love you. Talk to you next week.
