Hello All,
This week was pretty good.  Not super eventful though.  The Waka's had to postpone their baptism because they want the Dad to baptize the kids and since he is less active they need to wait for him to come to church for a couple of weeks.  But The sister missionaries in the Ward had an investigator get baptized and he asked me to be the one to baptize him.  It was pretty cool to do that.  His name is Sergio and he is from Paraguay.  It was good.  The 2 Jackson kids, Troy and Tori are back on date for the 12th, which is excited since their Dad is coming back from Perth to see the baptism.  We had a Leadership Council with the mission president on Friday which I learned a lot from, and found out that our zone, the Coomera Zone is the top zone in the mission right now, so that was great to hear.  Since I have come to the zone it had grown a lot and we are seeing a lot of success from the effort we have made to help all the other missionaries in the zone become more committed and converted, and that is what has helped the work grow.  We didn't have much time to work this week because of all the meetings we went to.  In just 3 days we drove a total of 600 Kilometers driving around and doing things for missionaries and going into the city.  That was about it for our week.  We are looking forward to a great week this week and a great month in April.  I hope you all have a great week!
