So Happy Mothers day last week! It was so good to talk to all of you via Skype! I miss you all! This week has been absolutely crazy! Sooo I told you on Skype we weren't getting transferred. Jokes, President changed his mind! We got transferred! We got doubled out of Kenwick and doubled into Thornlie, its like 10 minutes down the road. Same companionship, same ward, almost same area.... So not too exciting we have a new flat though, that is cool I guess! Some other exciting things this week:
1. Karl is still getting baptized on the 27th we are so excited for him!!! He was a little bit concerned about the word of wisdom but then he talked to President Fife at a fireside and now he is all good with it! :)
2. Sister Lao and I both got awesome colds from Sister Drew and Sister Prasodjo right before they left. What a nice present! We miss them sooo much!
3. I tried to ride a skateboard and fell off and got a minor concussion... don't worry I'm all goods. It was Hilarious! I wish I had pictures! I had this mean bruise on my face!
Other than that not a whole lot happening we are still trying to figure out this new area! Its exciting! I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!!

Mother's Day Skype with Sister Penrod! Her mission president let her Skype on Monday, so it would be Sunday (actual Mother's Day for us). The best gift ever! To see her smiling face... words can't describe how happy that made us! We talked with her and her companion, Sister Lao. What a treat! We love you Sister Penrod! They just had transfers and will stay together for another transfer. The other sisters in their area are being moved. They are now the only sisters in their area. It is getting colder where she is. They are moving into winter. She talked with her family, grandparents, some of her aunts and uncles and cousins. She even got a few computer kisses from some cute little ones! I think the smile says it all! We LOVE Sister Penrod! Thanks for sharing the greatest message out there! The Gospel is true!
Hi Everyone!! This week turned out really good!!! For a lot of reasons!! But the best is that :
KARL IS GETTING BAPTIZED!!!! I am sooooo excited for him!!! He is seriously sooo golden!! His date is the 27th of May but we will probably move it closer!! We are so blessed!!! I love teaching him because the spirit is always so strong in our lessons! I've learned so much in just the past week or so in our lessons with him! It really is amazing how the spirit teaches you while you are teaching!!
That was the highlight of the week! Other than that not a whole lot! Lots of tracting and finding! Its starting to get really cold here though! Who would have thought Australia was cold!? It is freezing!! It rains a lot!
It is Mothers day this Sunday!!! Yay! I get to talk to you people!!! I can't wait!! I hope you all have an amazing amazing week! Say a prayer for Karl!
Love you all!
