Week 13 - Kalgoorlie, Australia - November 9, 2015 - When it rains it pours

FAM! It was good to hear from you all and see some pics of what's going on back home. Kalgoorlie got some RAIN this week which is rare. It was flooding and the streets were rivers.  It was fun riding around in it haha. I guess when it rains in the outback it really comes down....But i don't expect to see any more rain.... This week was fun we went on a country trip to Norseman and Kambalda. These are two small country towns like 2 hours outside of Kalgoorlie. We visited the few members out there and then tracted like half the town and taught some lessons to some old redneck coots. Seriously, this was such a redneck town. We sat down with these 3 old men in this shack and while they drank and smoked in our faces, they showed us all these super cool pictures of them fishing off the coast of Australia. Haha!  These guys were such Legends! They were telling the most wild stories about sharks and crazy stuff they used to do. Haha I was laughing but the pics they showed us were really cool. It fun just cruising through the Outback. The Bush is so thick on both sides of the road in most places you can't see anything it was pretty tight. I drove most of the way.

 On Friday, we went on this food truck run to a lot of poor people in town with a cool family in our ward. The rain was poooouuuuuring that night so people would just wander out of the bush soaking wet for some warm soup. It was nice to see them happy to have some food!

We are still working with G, our atheist investigator. (As of yesterday, we actually have 2 atheist investigators) We had an awesome lesson when I was on exchanges with Elder Fowler. The spirit was very strong and after we knelt down and said a prayer, he told us that he felt very weird like he never has it a placebo or the spirit G! We will be fasting with him on Wednesday to receive an answer... I can't think of much more to say. We have found 2 people who want to be baptized but they live in Perth... so we referred them. We are working hard on trying to involve members with the missionary work.  We will LOVE them into missionary work! 

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When people are honest with themselves, they simply cannot deny our message. We go into people's homes and we absolutely testify so boldly and they know it is true but just like with Kenzie, people have their agency! They would rather go to the church with the electric guitars and a bar serving free beer!!! I know that this is Christ's church and he stands at the head...I love serving him, but I need to continue to improve in every way to be of more use to God. Love you all!  Have a mule of a week.
