Week 18 Hasten the Work

Good Week in Mildura

How great the joy of my heart is to hear of a wonderful deed done by more family which has been found again. From the second week of my Mission, it has always been on my mind about doing the work for nana and papa, i wasn't sure if you and dad had set a specific date, So i prayed and asked Heavenly Father to make it known whether this work has been done, or needs hastening. There is my answer. What exciting news to hear of our family history work picking up again, i wish i was there to assist in the work, its something i really would love to do. But its okay, get as many people done as possible.

What a wonderful Miracle that is though to witness,. Thank you mum for sharing that with me.

My Blessing, letters and photos arrived today, thank you so much they are perfect. The family looks amazing!

This week in Mildura we have done a lot of work, one of our investigators is now committed to baptism, we told her she can choose the date, she said "I want to be baptised the day after my birthday... 30th May" I didn't realise straight away until a bit later... shes born on 29th May as well :L We are getting her Uncle to Baptise her because he is a Solid young man in the Gospel. The family we are teaching are half Tongan and half Cook Island from Penrin. Had a lot of great lessons with the family and they seem to be getting a spiritual vibe. We have worked with them to set goals and make plans for something to work towards. May is going to be a great month, we are going to hasten the work in Mildura South. Its been a good week here in Mildura i guess, we have our challenges, spiritually, physically, mentally, temporally and emotionally. But we still persevere. Its true the quote "A Mission is the Best but Hardest 2 years of your life, you will struggle physically, spiritually and emotionally." It has been painful at times, im praying a lot for strength, not only for me but for you all as well. Just hoping and praying that everything goes well, its hard at times but i like the challenge. Just a scripture that really stands out to me "For we walk by Faith and not by Sight" - At times its hard to determine whether this is right or wrong, whether we are on the right path or not, our faith gets tested so much that we will tend to give up. We need to stop looking ahead at our future and start trusting that the Lord has things planned for us and is waiting for us to take those steps in order to receive the blessings that he has in store. We cannot see our future, so we must rely on the man who can. I leave you my testimony in the name Jesus Christ Amen.

Love you all
