week 20: australia style

the flat

Gday mum!!
This week was pretty awesome!  So this week consisted of us going to members homes and sharing a spiritual message about Christmas!  This past week really set the tone for the rest of the transfer, hopefully as we continue to build the relationship of trust with the members they will trust us to teach their friends.  This area has such great potential and Elder Richey and I are both thankful to be a part of this area at such an exciting time! 
We visited Benod this week, and he told us that his parents are not going to let him get baptized because, his parents would disown him.  So we are going to take a break from him until things cool off, and then maybe visit him again. We dropped off a Christmas care package for our new investigator Pamala and her family, they loved it!  We are seeing them this Thursday and I am super excited.
This upcoming week is going to be focused on finding and member work. Hopefully we can get some solid referrals this upcoming week!  I am thankful to be a missionary during such an exciting time!  The work is hastening heaps and I am so excited to be a part of it.  I have grown heaps as a person since coming out.  The Lord is really shaping me into the person i want to be and I am so very thankful for that!  I love this work so much!!
Happy Birthday mum!!!!  I am glad you liked your birthday card matey!!  It sounds like the house is getting an extreme makeover!  It will be cool to see what yous have done with it once I get back!  I really enjoyed talking to yous on Christmas as well!  It was heaps of fun to see the fams faces!  I love sister fox too!!  She takes such good care of us missionaries!!  Today we are going to play basketball with her sons!  We also have been working out with her son Ethan.  We have been working out with him in the mornings because we love him.  I am so thankful to be in Rosny ward!  The work is so great here!!  I hope you have the happiest birthday ever mum!!!  I love you so much!!  Enjoy the curry and decorations!!  Cheers!
Love, Elder Richins
