Along for the ride with Elder Pierce and Elder Parker4/26/2016
|Playing Touch on Anzac Day|
This week was really awesome. Elder Parker and I saw some miracles and just had some cool experiences, not to say that we haven't had the hard times... or i have when Elder Parker has left me in the dust while we are biking... haha (he is really fit). And it's not that my legs are sore from the biking, it's just they get to a certain point and then don't work any more... haha. But that's what makes it fun :) I will have to repent because I don't have too many pictures this week. But I did get a couple and I'll have to try to get the pictures that my companion has taken. Also about the sun burning I usually have been pretty good about sun screen and that will usually just have me covered... But there has been like 2 days where I got sunburned pretty bad because i just forgot to put on the sunscreen.... But it's not too bad.

But i learned a lot that day. Especially about my studies because I started doing something cool where I will write down a specific question I have like how do I know what feelings and promptings are the Holy Ghost? Then I'll write it down in my study journal and then just start to read any page of the Book of Mormon and then I'll always be able to find my answer and it has been really cool. The scriptures are real testaments of God and they are just so awesome! I have been working really hard on trying to follow all the promptings I receive from the spirit and I have just been noticing that the work is more fun and it is easier for me to talk to people, to be in the lessons and just all of it is better! It's so cool and i have been thinking about the story of Nephi before Christ comes and it says that so great was his faith in Jesus Christ that the people could not, not believe his words. I want to have have faith like that in my Savior. I know He is real and He loves each and every one of us. Don't doubt that. I have noticed the light of Christ in so many people even in those that I've talked with and when I teach the gospel they have the right questions and they just want to know the truth. This is because the spirit is real and it leads us to Christ. I love the gospel :)
Sorry I can't type fast enough to share everything but it's awesome being on my mission. I love it and i am working on my love that i have for the Australian people every day!
Also the 8th is Mother's Day! So I will be skyping sometime but I sent the stuff to you guys.
