Where does the time go?

Ok so here are a couple of updates on this week! Sorry i have no time!

We had interviews with President Back! I love him so much! We actually have interviews with Sister Back as well which i love! We get along great! Someone told me that i look like the younger version of Sister Back. Life made. Today we will be watching Meet the Mormons with Emma our investigator for P-day! (my first time seeing it) Emma came to church with her twins yesterday! It was a huge step. Also, Deborah is back! So church was great because  Deborah was sitting to my left and Emma was sitting to my right, and Ebony gave her first talk on Sunday! She killed it!

Soo the Sureskumar family's baptism is this Saturday! We have their program and everything ready! The only thing is they might have to move before their baptism. Since they are immigrants they have been trying to get their C's. In order to get their C's they have to move outside of Sydney. We will anxiously be awaiting a call today to know if they will be allowed to stay for their baptism. They have everything packed. If they can't be baptized this Saturday they will be baptized in Adelaide which will still be great! :) It was really hard hearing the news at first but i know this will be a blessing for them because now Rajen will have a steady job and they will be able to pay for their home. I'm out of time! The computed is going to shut off in 2 minutes! I love you all! There were heaps of miracles this week and i wish i could tell you all of them! I sent a lot of pictures this week! 


Pics 1-3: Happy Birthday Nathaniel and DUD from my companion and i!
Pic 4: Cutest little girl in my ward. She came and taught with us a couple weeks ago! If she doesnt fight with her siblings for a week she gets to go to the movies. A month she gets a 100 bucks. A year she gets a car. 

Pic 5: Our cute little investigators

Pic 7: This is Bishop's family. We ate with them for the first time which is a miracle because i dont know how long it's been since they've had the missionaries over. Maybe 10 months?

Would you like a cup of Milo?

Hello! I want to share a couple miracles this week and talk a little bit about our investigators that i love so so much. :)

Early this week we were contacting a potential named Grace that we had met at the park a couple P-days ago. In the phone i typed in Grace not realizing that there were 2 Graces. We accidentally called a Grace who had been a former investigator. The cool thing is we set up an appointment with her and she told us that it was a huge miracle that we called her because she had lost our contact and had been wanting to meet with the missionaries! We've already met with her twice! (She said a 10 minute prayer (no joke) thanking Heavenly Father for sending us and asking that we would baptized thousands and millions)! 
Ok, also right as we were walking in to email today we ran into Sella! She told us that she is half way through the Book of Mormon and she is reading it with Martine! :)

One more miracle. It was getting towards the end of the day and we decided that we should go visit the Nair family. They are less-actives. They've been for a while. We knocked 3 times but no one answered. We really felt like we needed to visit them thought so we decided to say a prayer on the doorstep. After our prayer we waited with faith that they would open the door, but nothing happened! So we started writing a note and THEY OPENED THE DOOR! We shared a message with them and they invited us back to eat on Sunday! They came to General Conference and Sister Nair had a spiritual experience!

Ok the Sureskumar family is doing great! Pray for them! We actually got to talk with Sithras mum and she is supportive! :) 

Emma, Ebony's mum is doing great too! She has been coming to Relief Society dance practices! 

We started teaching a girl named Jasmine and her Dad is LA. But her Dad's name is Elvis Presley which is super cool. 

Those are the mains, please pray for them :)

Ebony and Deborah are doing great! This week Ebony asked questions about being married in the temple and what she can do so her entire family can be there beside her and her mum. She talks as if her mum is already a member. It's so cute! 

But my favorite part about his week was General Conference. I have never loved General Conference more! I feasted on every word. The spirit was so strong. I really love how the Church is the same across the entire world. My testimony has been strengthened so much this week. Countless spiritual experiences. I know that my testimony is MY testimony. I don't even want to imagine my life without it or without my mission. I actually went into conference with 5 questions that i had written down. I took notes throughout the whole thing. After Conference i went through my notes and my questions had been answered in countless talks. And i actually got super specific answers. Holland and Nelson got me sooooo stoked to be a mum! I think my favorite talk was by Larry R. Lawrence. 

"We don't need to be more of anything to become the person we want to become! We don't have to be perfect, but we need to be good at getting better."

I also loved the Women's Conference. and how Sister Wixom talked about the 2 important days in a girls life. 1. the day she was born and 2. The day she finds out why.

I am finding out why on my mission and i love it! I love being a missionary and i love you!!!

Sister Chaipinit and Sister Morgan both left! It was a sad sad day in Flat 33. But my new companion is Sister Terihainui which i still can't pronounce right and the other sister is from Africa! My new companion is a sweetheart! A couple of updates!

I went to a wedding! We went with the Sureskumar family to a family wedding. We called up Pres and asked for his advice. He said, "They aren't invited into our temple, but looks like they've invited you into yours." Go! We went and it was.. an experience! Sister Chaipinit even wore an Indian dress. They had one for me but i am so tall so i couldn't wear it :( I'll send pics! Other than that we saw heaps of miracles and had heaps of smile moments! I love you all and i will try to be better at writing! Also i haven't watched General Conference yet because they record it and watch it the following week!
