Leaving Trott Park
Hey everyone! We received Transfer News this morning and I am staying...
in Trott Park for one more
night then being transferred tomorrow! Honestly don't really know how to
feel but I know
there's an adventure ahead. I don't know where I'm going yet but I will let you
know next week!
Tuesday Nov 11, 2014- Started off the day by doing some weeding for Neville
and Wendy. They are non members, aren't interested in the gospel but love
to have missionaries over. We then started teaching an 8 year old in our ward
who is getting baptized next week. She is so excited! Her name is Sky Glass.
Its so awesome to see little ones with joy in their eyes leading up to
Wednesday Nov 12, 2014- Had trade off with Elder Anton from Sydney,
it was the hottest day ever.We went like 5 times to McDonald's to get drinks
because we we're dried out the whole day.
Thursday Nov 13, 2014- We had Weekly Planning today and we both
felt the sprit strongly as we were working out what we needed to do to improve
the area and the biggest thing that we got out of it was FORGET YOURSELF.
We need to stop thinking of ourselves and focus on serving the people
around us. We had a lesson with a old couple from Holland that night
named Peter and Netti, their the sweetest couple and the lesson went really
well even though they rejected the invitation to be baptized but we still
plan on visiting them this next week (well not me).
Friday Nov 15, 2014- This was a day full of walking in the rain. Such a blast!
And we found a new investigator named Hannah! She just graduated from
High School and was baptized last year into the Baptist Church and she's really
keen on learning about our church! It's so great to see young adults who live in
the world but not of the world who live by their faith. We then went to go play ball
with the bishopric which was sweet. The bishopric is all youngish guys so they could
run with us. It was so fun to be able to do that.
That was basically my week this week! I'll talk to you all next week,
in my new area!
