Holy heck this is all getting so weird. This is my second to last email! It still hasn't even come close to kicking in that I leave. It’s so weird. All the members in our ward always bring it up asking how long I have now and all that sort of stuff. But anyways thats enough of that.
This week was a long week for lots of reasons. So many things went on. We had MLC on Wednesday with President Walker. It was very different from President Balli. It was good though, it’s just hard to adjust. But it’s good because this mission needs what he has to offer. It was cool tho during our MLC, he wanted to come up with 5 things that the NZAM (New Zealand Auckland Mission) will be known for. It took us about an hour and a half but we finally came up with it. We put the 5 things into sentences. It’s not quite finished yet but it was cool to be apart of that aspect of things because that will probably last the whole time he is here.
We had a cool experience this week. Elder Chi and I were looking through our area book trying to find people who we could contact because we are struggling to find people to teach. We came across a former inv. Richard. He went and visited and through out this last week we have had a few lessons with him. He committed to come to church which was good. We contacted one of our members who knows him pretty well and our member was telling us that he always will tell missionaries that he will come to church but never does and our member is always stood up by him every time he goes to pick him up. Our member told us this but he said he will go try anyways because we had asked him too. To make a long story short he came to church and when we got to church our member apologized to us for doubting and he said it was a powerful experience for him. So it was really cool. We are hoping to get Richard set with a date for baptism. So that was pretty exciting for us.
On Friday we planned a movie night with all the missionaries in the zone and there investigators. We got members to bring snacks while we watch. We just watched it at the chapel on a big tv. We watched Ephraim’s rescue. It was really good. We had a solid turn out as well and was a good experience for our investigators.
That’s all I have from this week and to be honest I don’t know if I will even write much next week but we will see. Cant wait to see everyone next week! It’s so weird saying that!!!!! hahah Have a great week! I love you heaps!
