Hello all!
My week was really good! The Piper family came to church this week! That means Tyler and Bryan also came to church. The first time we have had investigators come to church in a while! If they come to church next week they will be baptized on the 24th of March! It is very exciting! They are progressing really well. The Branch President told us that when Tyler went to Priest Quorum he actively participated like he was a member. He showed excitement that he really wanted to be baptized and Bryan enjoyed Primary as well. Things are going really well and I am looking forward to the day they are baptized!
Transfers happened and Elder Sio and I are going to be together for another 6 weeks in Townsville. I will most likely be transferred back to somewhere in Brisbane after that time. Elder Field from the other companionship in Townsville is going back down south and Elder Pickett from Idaho Falls, Idaho will be coming up. I don't know who he is, but he was trained by Elder Davis, who I was in the MTC with. Hopefully he will be a good addition to the Townsville Area. 

The Townsville West Elders had the Wedding and Baptism on Saturday with Meteria and her now husband. It was a good experience. We spent the whole day at the chapel helping get things ready and then cleaning up afterwards. It was a good experience. You could see the changes in the lives when they decided to get married and then have Meteria baptized. They are going to grow in the gospel and they will be sealed in the temple in about a year. 
All of our other investigators just don't want to keep commitments and they don't want to come to church. We are going to keep working with them and we hope that things will start to progress with them soon! 
That was all the exciting things that happened. The church is true! I miss you all and I hope you all have a great week!
