Not much to say this week

23rd April

I have a new companion now, his name is Elder Lou from Sacramento, he is awesome, he was with Elder Greenfield before. We just got a new Branch President so we are excited to see what will happen here with the work, he seems great.   I don't have much to report this week. Sorry it's not a long one transfers is such an ordeal because we had to travel so much.  If you want to send me anything for my birthday make it something good like Bovril please, there is only so much English stuff I can come by.
Sorry about not sending photo's I've just not really got round to it but I'll send some soon.

Hey, How's it going?
I got told I sounded more English than ever yesterday YYYYAAAAAAYYY, People keep telling me I sound American but I think it's cos they have pre conceptualised ideas about Mormon Missionaries. aaah well, the work is going slowly at the moment but we did a lot of service this week, we dropped a few potentials, we really need the Lords help right now cos we can't seem to find anyone, but there is someone otherwise we wouldn't be here. Our Branch mission leader is the best, he is always encouraging the members to feed us and find people, he's the man. It's good to have challenges though. Our one Investigator is back so we hope to be teaching her a lot but she's really busy with her family Business. An excommunicated member has decided to get re Baptised which is exciting (even though it's not our jurisdiction) 
 I'm excited for Zone conference this week as we'll actually see missionaries, it's kinda lonely here I'm glad the members are awesome and my companion is the man. man I hope I can get more humble I'm such a Mahi but hey that’s what the mission is for.

Talofa, ua mai oe?
Hello, how are you? This week has been interesting, our bikes seem to have endless problems, we got flats again, so we bought these inner tubes with slime in, this sealant that stops you getting punctures (YEAH). I really enjoyed conference although I only saw two and a half sessions.  I really enjoyed L.Tom Perry's talk and President Monson’s talk, also President Uchtdorf’s talk.
We are doing a lot of finding at the minute, we found some awesome potentials on a trade-off this week. I think the district leader and his companion got a bit bushed as we had a Zone conference at Karawatha (just south of Brisbane) so they had to get up early to pick us up for the 2 hour journey to get there by 8:30 and they are an hour away in Toowoomba. They stayed overnight after the conference then left. President gave an awesome training on the Saviour’s physical experience though the Atonement and it was incredible. I'm so grateful for he did and is now doing for us and it is such a blessing to be able to have and to share this knowledge.
keep the faith and be strong

April 2nd 2013

How is everyone?  I can't believe how much Spike has grown -  his emails are really inspiring and he must have had a great trainer. I'm glad. Man he's such a good example to us all.  This last week was slow as due to many bike problems but we found some awesome potentials, an Irish couple who we left really thinking about stuff I think the spirit really touched them but the appointment we had with them yesterday fell through, but it was a public holiday so they probably just decided to go out as they had a day off. This week has already started off better and we are doing some good work, the members here are awesome, Warwick area in the mission kind of has a bad reputation but it is awesome, I truly have a testimony of attitude and how it can affect things, especially your spirituality. My legs are getting strong as from so much cycling, Warwick town is pretty flat but there are some really hilly areas that we often go to, We've been really looking for opportunities to serve people as well, as that is what will render a positive response from people here, we might be helping a guy landscape his Garden and we might be doing service at a place that does horse riding for the disabled. I love this gospel and the blessings it brings to our lives.
My companion was reading the Infinite Atonement by Callister and we studied how people have concerns with us becoming Gods, one of the scriptures it directed to was in John, chapter 10 where Christ speaks to the Pharisees and tells them that if it wasn't the case "their" law would be Broken. I'll put in a excerpt next week.
I love you all. Stay strong, stay Awesome.
