Heeyyyy! I hope you all have had a wonderful week!! Ours has been pretty awesome! Full of Miracles!! We found two new investigators this week! They are so lovely! One is from Vietnam she is older and needs help learning English! She was so excited to meet us she hasn't had any friends since she moved here seven years ago because nobody can understand her :( so we are going to be teaching her and teaching her English! yay! She has an amazing garden and has given me many chilis and flowers! woo!
The other one is so amazing! She is just perfect in everyway! (except she isn't a member yet) ;) She is a paediatrician and her husband is an architect.... they are both so excited to learn. She found out about the church by reading Mormon mummy blogs and they led her to lds.org! She asked for missionaries to come and visit her! She has two adorable kids and wants them to grow up with a religious community and learn good values and principles and she thinks that from going through lds.org our church is it! That makes are job easy!! ;) She is seriously so amazing! aside from working full-time she is an amazing mum and has two adopted pets the cat only has one leg, she has the cutest most perfect little apartment right on the beach, and she makes sugar free tarts for us (they are even good for your teeth she said)! She is seriously a dream come true!! We are so blessed to have met her!
I hope you all have a wonderful fantastic week!
I love you all and miss you heaps!
You are in my thoughts and prayers!

Heyyyyy Everybody!!! I hope you all had a wonderful week! Ours is going pretty alright! I gained a HUGE testimony of fasting this week!! I've been fasting for two less-active families in our ward to have the desire to really come back to church! And after Church one of them told me She is getting her temple recommend and going to do baptisms for the first time on Friday and The other family told me that they have rearranged their work schedule so they can come to church every Sunday from now on!!!!!!!! Fasting Works! Heavenly Father loves all of his children so much! I feel so grateful that my prayers were answered! I'm so grateful to be here! I'm so grateful for the knowledge I have of my loving Heavenly Father!!
I hope you all have a wonderful week!!
Love, Sister Penrod xoxo

Not a lot happened other than we met Arnie and he is going to get baptised! Yay! He is so sweet! We are so excited for him! We just met him knocking on doors we were about to leave because no one answered so we started writing our phone number on cards and 5 minutes later he opened the door! #blessing
I got to go on exchanges with Sister Mitchell from Cairns, QLD she is awesome!! It was an awesome day! I gained a testimony of the fact that angels are with us! I almost got hit by a car! It backed out without looking and I wasn't looking and it touched my leg but then it stopped! We were both screaming! But that was a miracle!! I'm so grateful I didn't get hit! #tendermercy

Sister Pawpaw (some african kids changed my name!) haha!
From her mom: It was so wonderful to hear from Sister Penrod! She Skyped us in the middle of our night Christmas Eve/morning (hard to tell our brains were asleep). Despite the hour... to see her and talk to her was the best Christmas present! Just a little over 3 months and we will see her in person!
Has been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Perth, Australia. She reports to the Provo, Utah MTC September 23!
