Thursday Aug 14 we had Zone Training which was really inspiring, then we had ministering night with brother Miciliwetz in our ward. He's kind of a strange guy. We pulled up to his house and he was standing outside and we went to go say hello and he wouldnt respond to us, he was just staring off. He has epilepsy so he mightv'e had a mild seizure. I told sister Mikiliwetz about it so at least she knows. We had the chance to visit some members in the ward so that was good.
Friday Aug 15 I had a trade off with the other zone leader Elder Bush. It went well, I was in his area and we had a lot of lessons which was good because we only have one investigator at the moment so basically all we're doing is finding. Door knocking and street contacting all day, ery day.
Sunday Aug 17 I'm proud to announce that after 5 months in the mission I have finally had an investigator come to church! Andrew Shore! (Took awhile, hey) It was really good to see him there though.
Monday Aug 18 We're having a problem with the members in our ward. We have 3 companionship's in the ward and the members aren't keen at all for doing missionary work. With the exeption of Whitrods and Watts. I'm sure they do want to do missionary work but they aren't showing it. Like this week we called 3 memebers to ask if we can come over and the first question that they all asked was "why do you need to come?" Really shows the way our members feel about us. We need to all understand that hastening the work of salvation is not just for missionaries, we can't do it without the members.
Tuesday Aug 19 we decided to make treat bags for each member in our area so we went to the grocery store and bought some lollies and wrote a little note to everyone. Hopefully that will soften their hearts.
Wednsday Aug 20 Did Family History today! It was pretty surprising and quite sad at first to see "Thomas Francis Acker- deceased" It kind of just hit me that he isn't here anymore but I know that he's closer to all of us than ever before. I definitely felt the spirit of Elijah as I did family history.
Thats pretty much what happned this week. I love you all and I hope everything is going well.
Hello! Its been a week and a half since I last wrote so I'll just let you know what happened.Tuesday Aug 12 was trade off day with one of my zone leaders named Elder Dos Santos. He is from Brisbane, and very short. He kinda looks like lord farquad from Shrek! It was a good day, we started off the morning with an Indian breakfast at these people we met. They aren't interested but we got to know them better. It was delicious! We then had a lesson with Andrew Shore, our only investigator (Ya I know, rough...) which went well. We then had a lesson with a man named Russel who was trying to force us to "go to Vegas, meet some nice girls, and drink some Jack Daniels." He said that our lives are too narrow. It's true, the strait and narrow is where its at :)
