HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA DAVIS! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY/PAPA!!! I LOVE YOU BOTH AND HOPE YOUR BIRTHDAYS ARE WONDERFUL!!!
Today is my 2 month mark! Yay! I feel like I've been here for ages already, I can't believe it's only been 2 months! Happy Thanksgiving! I have decided that Australia is pretty cool because well, Australians eat pancakes covered in Ice cream and sugar and milo and call it breakfast, I quite enjoy this. I think I will bring it back to America with me! Haha!
Our district is pretty much the exact same after transfers, except Elder Ioane, our district leader and my mission dad went back home to Samoa, we all miss him heaps! He was an awesome missionary! So now Elder Edwards is DL, he has been in Mandurah ward his entire mission over 9 months! We didn't believe anyone when they told us he was staying! And the "new" missionary is Elder Tafilipepe, he is from Melbourne and served in Mandurah ward last Christmas time, so he already knows everyone, so he's not really new. We already got invited to all spend Christmas at Bishops house! Yay! We love the Semu's! Missionary party ;)
We've been running every day! Now that we live with the members in Wannanup it's like 20 ks away from our old flat so we can't really go to Rau's house in the morning to excersize! So we started running! We run on this trail next to this ocean channel with heaps of boats! I saw a dolphin the other day outside our window, well the Morris's window! I didn't get a picture but Yay Dolphin! haha!
Rau is doing so awesome, she is such an inspiration and so kind to us, she had to push back her baptisimal date to work through some things but she is so strong! Hopefully she will be getting baptised soon! She feeds us all of the time! Even more than members! 2 nights ago she fed us a hungi! So Good! It' s like all of these veggies and meat roasted under the ground in a pit it's maori and so yum!
This week we have been studying a lot about the atonement with Rau, It is so amazing, I am learning so much! The atonement is so real, If you haven't seen/ heard the talk "His Grace is Sufficient" by Brad Wilcox, you need to watch it! It is amazing, we watched it with Rau a few nights ago and afterwards she said it just makes sense. Our Heavenly Father wants to help us through everything! He does! I know that he loves each of us individually, he knows our trials and our weaknesses and wants to give us EVERYTHING! I love you all, and miss you heaps!
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!
