-We met a guy on the train and started talking to him, after giving him a pamphlet he looked at the back and saw the picture of the Book of Mormon and said "hey I have this book and I've been reading it! " #miracle
- We had a fun ward trunk-or-treat! we are so blessed we had so many investigators come!!
- We had a great stake helping-hands activity we got to plant reeds in the swamp to help with flooding!

HEEY EVERYBODY! I hope yous all had a great week! ours was pretty awesome eh!! This was the week of miracles! woohoo!
So were doing service for this lady her lawn is taller than me and all we had was a little electric lawnmower we borrowed from the Elders and a pick-axe. We did about half of it and this little old German lady walking her dog stopped and told us we were stupid for trying to do that. She said she would go get us her whippersnipper from down the road and bring it back for us to borrow! She saved us! After we went to return it, we got to start talking to her and she said we could come back and teach her!!! woohoo! Yes! Thank you Heavenly Father.
Another miracle! We were out tracting and getting heaps of doors slammed in our faces and we were feeling pretty down! But we felt inspired to go over to a members house we rocked up and their family from Dubai was there! They want us to teach them!!! Thank you again Heavenly Father!!
I'm so grateful to have this opportunity to serve the Lord here in WA! I know that He loves all of his Children and He has been preparing all of them!! I'm so grateful for this gospel! I know that it brings true joy! I'm so grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ! I'm still trying to understand fully what it is, but I know that it helps me!! It can help all of us! I love you all have an amazing week!
Au Lomani Iko!

Hello Everyone!!! I hope you all had a great week! Ours was pretty good! We are staying another 6 weeks!!! Wooo! I love Thornlie ward! At the end of this transfer It will have been 10 months here! We suffered through some awesome colds at the beginning of the week but we survived!!
We had lots of miracles this week! We found heaps of new potential investigators through good old tracting! We did some major service, we are pretty much professional landscapers now ;) haha! Dad you would be proud I didn't break any mower in the process as well! haha! ;)
We started teaching a really cool Muslim lady and Sikh lady! They are sooo lovely!
Its so cool to learn about their different cultures! I've gained such a respect for other religions on my mission and their dedication! I'm so grateful that we have the fullness of the gospel! I know the Book of Mormon is true without a doubt! I'm so grateful for it!
I love you all I hope you have an amazing week!

This week was great! I hope you all had a great week! We had many miracles! :)
We got to go on exchanges with Sister Grace and Sister Wiest! Love those sisters! We got to pet some kangaroos! We found some awesome new investigators! #miracle! We got to see womens conference! =Faith!!!!! Loved it! One of our not-progressing investigators called us and told us she wants to make more time for us! YAY! We had some awesome spiritual lessons! The members here are awesome! We got attacked by many magpies, swooping count for the week is up to 7. We felt the spirit a lot and were led by the spirit a lot. I also learned an important lesson this week. I had been feeling like we should go visit a certain member all week. But I ignored it because we were busy and I thought the member was busy. But on Sunday this certain member got up and shared her testimony about how she had a really terrible week and how she felt Heavenly Fathers love.... It hit me right in the heart and I felt terrible. I know that we get promptings all of the time. Anytime we are prompted to do something good we need to act on it! Its all part of faith!! I will not let those promptings go by anymore! I invite you to do the same! Have the faith and courage to act on the promptings you receive daily!
I love you all!
Have a great week!
Au Lomani Iko!
