Hello All,
I have been finally able to email some pictures again. The first one is with Elder O'Connor and I with Valerie Powell at her baptism on May 11th 2013. The other one is of Elder Lao and I with President and Sister Langeland at their farewell training. President and Sister Langeland have gone home to Utah and we have received President and Sister Henderson as our new mission president and wife from St. George Utah. I have not met them yet because they just arrived today. They might come to our Zone Meeting next week but if they don't I will get to meet them next week. The last picture is of my first encounter with a kangaroo when driving. I wish I could have got out to ride on it. It was massive. It was about 8-9 feet tall. and massive. It was pretty cool.

As for the week. We found people to teach!!! A few weeks ago we tracted into a less active member who had been looking at coming back to church and she has a partner who is a non member. We started teaching him. He is not too interested, but he said he would read and pray about the Book of Mormon, and he said if he received an answer that it was true, then he would be baptized! 

About 2 weeks ago we street contacted this guy. We had a talk with him and he ended up not being interested then, but this last week we saw the same guy again when we went to visit a less active member who lived in a caravan park. We started teaching him, he came to church on sunday and he is excited to learn more about the gospel!!! It is pretty exciting. We are going to commit him and his daughter who came to church as well to baptism this week! It is really exciting. It was revelation that we were able to meet him multiple times because he did want to hear the message, it just took a couple of times for him to open up enough to accept the message. His name is Eddy and he is pretty solid.

Like always we did a lot of tracting, and we got a new ward mission leader who is keen, so missionary work is going to really pick up in Redcliffe in the next couple of months! I love being a missionary, I love you all, and miss you all, and I hope you have a great week!
