Kia Orana,Talofa! Malo! G'Day!
Hey family, sorry for the short email last week, had to drive down to Adelaide to get my new companion! Man he is awesome, solid missionary, he is from Utah. 3 missionaries were transferred meaning 3 new missionaries in our zone, awesome!!!
Elder Martineau - My companion from Utah
Elder McClutchie - New Zone Leader from Gisborne, Nz
Sister Siale - From Brisbane somewhere yet I have never met her lol.
So anyway its 3 great additions here in the ZMZ - Zion Mildura Zone! Oh what an exciting week it has been. We have been teaching a tongan/cookie family for quite some time now, and now we have a new investigator from within the household. Its exciting because she is more excited than the other two lol. Always keeping her commitments to read the book of Mormon and pray, just seeing the happiness from people is awesome! Im excited to be able to Skype you all tonight! Excuse me if I cry :L But yeah im pretty nervous too I don't know why. It will be cool though ill introduce you to the Seve family, its a samoan family that im really close with, great young family also we love them to bits. We have been out there just smashing finding. Its tough knocking doors all day and having them slammed in your face, but I turn to my companion and say "That's one door closer to our miracle". I know the Lord is preparing people for us to teach, and unless we go through our trials we will never reach our miracles. I hope my mothers day card arrived to you yesterday, I sent it through express mail on Saturday so anyway HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FOR YESTERDAY TO ALL THE MOTHERS <3
I think that something I really learned this week was to really study in depth, ive been utilizing my time more wisely but really pondering on things that I read. 1Nephi chapter 1 says more than I ever thought it would say, studying chapter by chapter, word by word and grabbing the deeper meaning behind it has helped me increase spiritually (: Study hard and with real intent, actually ponder the words to find the hidden message.
Anyway family I hope and pray that everything back home is going swell! Your always in my prayers, forever and always! Love you all endlessly, family is not by blood, we are all family.
ZAAM to no End
