Another Transfer in the "Swich""

Dear Everyone,

 So as far as the transfers go I will be staying here in the Yamanto/ Raceview area! Also Elder Ray will be staying but our trio will be gone because Elder Bull will be leaving. It is pretty sad to say goodbye to Elder Bull, it definitely was an awesomely interesting transfer, haha we had a crack up time! Also to let everyone know Elder Bull is doing much better! but ya he is leaving so yup... 

But this last week was interesting because Elder Ray thought he was going to leave so he was going through the stages of grief and everything haha it was actually pretty funny how real it was. On Monday we had a really awesome zone p-day where we played volleyball and ninja and touch which was a lot of fun.  Our missionaries worked really hard to get this zone p-day. 

A lot of the rest of the week went pretty slow because Elder Ray got sick with the flu for two days and because it was week 6 of the transfer we had to clean our flat and do all sorts of things so it was kind of busy. But it is pretty crazy because in our zone the only one who got transferred out was Elder Bull and the rest stayed the same which we were pretty shocked about.  I am pumped for this next transfer because I get along really well with my companion and the work is really moving forward here in Ipswich! 

But ya, hope you all have a great week!

A Weird but Good Week

10/17 2017
Dear Everyone,

  So this past week was pretty fun, heaps of stuff happened. But before I forget this is the last week of the transfer. So we have found a really awesome part member family a couple of weeks ago and we have set one of the kids on date, their name is the Tau family from NZ. 

So on Tuesday we had a trade off with one of the assistants for the day so we but him with Elder Bull and me and Elder Ray did some other work which was fun. We also had a dinner with one of our investigators that day her name is Tammy and she was going to go into surgery the next day and so she asked that we would give her a blessing.  She asked that I would give it and it was such an awesome blessing one of the coolest I have ever given, and so she felt much better about her surgery. 

Then because we were already planning on doing a trade-off with the Callingwood Park Elders (Elder Meyer) so I was going to go with Elder Meyer in his area with Elder Bull as well. But while we were waiting for The Collingwood Park missionaries to show up it took to long so we started mucking around.. and ya long story short there Elder Bull fell off the back of the car and now he has a minor concussion...... ya....... so ya.... but so on the the trade off Elder Bull passed out a couple of times and so we took him to the doctors and the doctor pretty much said he has a minor concussion so just be careful with him for the next couple of weeks. So Pretty much that trade-off day I just chilled with Elder Meyer in the flat and drove Elder Bull to doctors appointments and ct scans and such. 

Then on Thursday we went into Brisbane city to teach an English language study class that our mission is doing for some of the missionaries who are struggling a lot with English so we did that all day. But it was pretty cool because Elder Choi my last companion was there! and I actually got to teach a real Korean investigator with him so that was fun. And then ya we had a ward activity in Raceview on Saturday morning but we had to leave because Elder Bull fainted again..... but ya so we had a weird but really good week and the work here in our area has been picking up a lot :) so ya awesome stuff. 

Everyone have a good week!

Never a Dull Moment!


Dear Everyone,
Once again, I have used poor  time management so I am running out of time to email. But we had an amazing week this week. I am really enjoying being in a trio there is almost never a dull moment. 

We have been able to find a lot of new investigators this week (like more than I have ever found in one week- 12) and so we are really excited! It is good to be covering two wards because it always keeps us busy. We also have an awesome zone with a lot of hard working missionaries and so we just have a lot of fun. 

But ya that is pretty much our week. Love you all and happy birthday to Mom and Calvin!
