This past week was all good! We had zone conference this week at the Macarthur Stake Center in Blair Athol. It was pretty good. It was a combined zone conference so the Macarthur North and my zone the Macarthur South. A lot of the islanders asked where I have been and wanted to play more volleyball with me but we are in different zones. This week we helped a new family from Liverpool near Sydney, move into our area. They have a massive house and it took 2 days for everything to get moved in. They are an Italian family and the Dad is the only one who is not a member so we have some potential with him. There was a member from their old ward helping and he is a big Samoan. He was cool as and pretty crack up. He shouted us Macca's for dinner which was sweet as. That was pretty much the week. Hope everyone has a good week and thanks for the support.
1/28/18-Letter to Mum and Dad:Dear mum and dad,
Great to see that everyone is safe! It's great to see how the Lord protects those who are obedient to his commandments. Every time someone ask where I am from I say Southern California and every time they respond by telling me how hectic things are there with fires and mudslides and all that. But I know that yous are protected because of yous obedience to the Lord.
I finished the book of Mormon for the 4th time on my mission! What I did is mark with purple every example of pride. What I learned is pride is everywhere and is the main reason why we commit sin. It is very easy to find in others but hard to see in ourselves. I have been trying to see the pride in myself and fix it and I have definitely felt the difference. Great to see that yous are working hard not only with yous jobs but more so in the church. I know that if yous continue doing that yous will continue to be blessed. I love yous and thanks for the support. Hope Mum had a great time celebrating her 40th Birthday!!!!
