Good Morning Everyone! I hope everything is going well, it's been a great week here in Trott Park!Tuesday Oct 14, 2014- We had Zone Training today and honestly everyone believes it was the best training we've all had on our missions! Usually trainings are given to improve our teaching skills but this training was all centered on pure testimony of God. We do "real" plays all the time on the mission where we role play/practice teaching in companionship. Me and Elder Dass role played with two Sister Missionaries and it was amazing. Our purpose was to not really blast with information but to teach how God is Our Loving Heavenly Father solely from bearing personal testimonies. We all we're doing this role play in this room and pretty soon enough the tears flowed. there was such a spirit in that room as we all testified of the Love and relationship we all have with our Father in Heaven. You know, I feel the spirit in a lot of different ways but during this role play, I actually felt that "burning in my bosom", an actual burning sensation in my chest, it felt like my whole being wasn't able to handle that wonderful feeling and yet I can't explain a better feeling in the world. I know God lives. We can all Know. Just talk to him. After the training we just had to go to Maccas (McDonald's) which is always fun. We then went to go do service for the Watts and then they fed us Domino's.

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed General Conference this past weekend! I know I sure did! So many inspiring thoughts and revelations given from these Prophets and Apostles. let's all strive our best to become more and more like our Savior Jesus Christ everyday. Always look for ways to improve, and apply all the things these inspired Men of God share to us. If you haven't seen these talks yet visit "LDS.org". I KNOW THAT THESE MEN ARE CALLED OF GOD AND THAT WE DO INDEED HAVE A PROPHET OF GOD ON THE EARTH NAMED THOMAS S. MONSON.Oct 8, 2014- First day with my new companion, Elder Dass, he is a crack up! We definitely are having fun together and I definitely can see miracles happen in the Trott Park area this transfer! We had dinner with the Robbins family that night and they fed us tater tot casserole. Bit weird haha. But it's always so great to go their house because they are all return missionaries. The parents, the daughter, the daughters fiance, and the brother. We had some pretty good conversations on how we can find people to teach so that was pretty inspiring! We then had a lesson with Andrew Shore that night and we just read the Book of Mormon with him.

Hey Everyone!Thought I would let you know first off that I'm staying in Trott Park again... another 6 weeks. And my new companion is Elder Dass from Sydney. He has a Fiji background and is a real cool Elder, a lot different than Elder Tau though, I miss that guy. We had District Meeting today and something just felt off. I think its because Elder Tau has left and also Sister Christensen who is by far my favorite Sister of all time. She just went home to Washington. With them two gone today, I felt pretty down actually. You build such great relationships on the mission and then you just get separated all of a sudden. But I know that I've just got to stay patient and adjust myself to the circumstances now.
