Oh my life what a week! Heaps to say, and so little time. Hopefully my fingers can type fast:)
First of all, the subject of this email. So every night when we get home we have to text our STL’s to tell them that we have arrived at our flats, so that they can report it to president. Well I got tired of always texting “Home.” So I started texting code words like “The eagle has landed” or “The fish is in the bowl” or “Jonah is in the whale”. Bahahahaha it’s so crack up. The STL’s told us that it is nice to have a little fun at the end of the day, and they think it is so funny. So I think I will keep it up:)
So this week started out really great! Our Sister Training Leaders came over to our flat and taught us how to properly do planning and how to be more organized in the work, which I am grateful for because I was feeling really lost:) Then, on Tuesday we had a really good lesson with one of our investigators and she said “I may be jumping the gun, but I just really want to be baptized.” Sister Finefeuiaki and I just looked at each other and couldn’t stop smiling. THEN, right after that lesson, we met up with this guy that the elders referred us to, and he said that he wants to learn more, and he has already started reading the Book of Mormon! All on his own!!! What a great start to our week!
On Wednesday, my poor companion got so sick! We were stuck in the flat all day, and all day Thursday, and all day Friday. Friday night we spent the night in the emergency room, but they still don’t know what is wrong with her! So hopefully she will get better soon! I was able to do a lot of work in our area book this week, while I was stuck in the flat! So it was actually a good thing for me! The elders in our area gave her a blessing, so hopefully she will get better this week:)
Sunday was great too! We got another new investigator named Gina! She is so cool! One of our less active members referred her to us, and the first lesson we had with her went so well! I just LOVE teaching people, and learning from them. There are so many people in this world, and I hope that in some way I can help even just one while I am here in beautiful Aotearoa!
Spiritual thought: So I have started reading the bible this week! I found this scripture that I really like! Exodus 4:10-12. It just goes to show that Heavenly Father WILL fill in our weaknesses. Because none of us are perfect, and we all need his help!
Kia Kaha! Arohanui! Have a GREAT week, and know that I love you all and pray for you all!
Who says you can’t match your umbrella when it’s pouring rain and you are soaking wet!
Me next to a cool as bush!
My lovely companion!
