HELLO! Its been a fantastic week here in Evandale!
Monday May 25, 2015- Had a good P day today, got my haircut then went to the Australian style noodles and company, really nothing here is up to par with American food haha but its alright. We had dinner tonight with the Hadju family, Brother Hadju made chicken pot pie which was awesome. We then went to go see our investigator Kaleb, we introduced him to the Book of Mormon and he is real keen and reading and praying to know if it is the Word of God!
Tuesday May 26, 2015- We got to go get fish and chips today with the Bealicki's! They are an older couple in our ward and Brother Bealicki reminds me of Sanat Claus haha it was pretty great to go get lunch with them because they took us to the place where all the old people eat for lunch, I love old people so it was god fun haha We then spent most of the day in the flat because Elder Hayes felt sick, always hate staying in the flat but all good.
Wednsday May 27, 2015- We had a wonderful district meeting today with President Carter attending, and then we got to have interviews with him after which is always great. I love President and Sister Carter so much!
Thursday May 28, 2015- We saw an investigator of ours today named Gerry, he's about in his 70's and he's a little crazy haha it was the first time I met him because he has been in Queensland for awhile but he is one interesting guy. We then had dinner with the Rice family and they are awesome! Just a young family with two little girls and their just the best. Bro Rice is really loves basketball so we got along well.
Friday May 29, 2015- Got a call from President Carter this morning telling me that Elder Hayes will have to end his mission in two weeks. He said he felt inspired from his interview on Wednsday that he is just not emotionally capable of continuing to serve. He's really been struggling this transfer but he has served faithfully. He feels happy that he is finishing his mission and is excited to to do missionary work back home. For some reason I was just dead beat today, just so tired. We got Subway today and then we had the opportunity to go on trade offs with the Assistants of the mission for a bit. It was a really great opportunity to learn form them. Their just like any other Elders though which was cool. We finished the night off playing sport at the chapel with some members which was so fun! We played volleyball and basketball.
Saturday May 30, 2015- What a wonderful day! Dave and Halla had their wedding this morning and it was just so good. They are so happy and are really making changes in their life and Hala is getting baptized in two weeks! We pretty much go to their house evry single day just because they're so awesome and I love their baby boy Nathan, he is so cute! Dave had some family in twon for the wedding so we got to spend time with them later that night and it was just the best! Islanders are just so fun to be with! We had KFC and were just cracking up all night. We then found a new investigator named Joseppi (Joe) who is from Italia! He is super keen to learn about the gospel! Found him while door knocking!
Sunday May 31, 2015- Found out this morning that L Tom Perry passed away. Such a great man and Apostle of the Lord. He has taught me so many things, so grateful for his life. Church was good today and after we went o go see our investigator Peter juist to catch up. Then went to dave and Hala's.
Love you all! Have a great week!
