Week 31 - Gosnells, Southern River Zone, Western Australia - March 14, 2016 - BUZZY

When something is true but hard to believe they say..."buzzzzzzzy" here.....It is buzzy to think that you guys will be going to pick up Kenzie just in 2 days! That is soooooo cool! I am so happy that most of the family will be re-united! haha Don't worry about me. Just send lots of pictutres of Brazil and all the people you guys meet! Can't wait till next Monday to see everything! Cool also to hear all the hullabaloo that is going on back home. Seems like things are quite busy. I was really happy to hear Jake baptized Bennett. That brought a smile to my face! He beat me to his first baptism. haha!

Well, E came to church yesterday. He always loves it and he still wants to get baptized but it's still the same old problem. His elders of his tribe need to grant permission....We talked straight up with him and he called his uncle again to talk to him.  Apparently he won't know for sure until his uncle comes to Australia sometime soon.....Who knows when that will we are praying and fasting for a miracle! J and M are doing well. They are sincerely investigating and they said when they come to know that it is true for themselves they will be baptized. M is having a little bit of a hard time just because her whole family is very dedicated to Catholicism and her brother is a priest....They are reading the Book of Mormon though and they are coming to a small ward gathering tonight so I hope all goes well there. Elder Brinkerhoff and I are sharing a spiritual thought at this gathering so we practiced a little skit we made up. haha I'll film it and try to send it to you guys.  It should create some laughs.

C is doing alright. He is still toughing it out with his smoking habit. We are working as close as possible with him. This morning we went over and read Alma 32 with him and watched all 3 patterns of light videos by Elder Bednar. It was very good. He will be baptized if he can kick the smoking but he needs Gods help...that is where we are at with him...

We found a couple from New Zealand who are keen to hear our message so we are seeing them tomorrow. We met her walking home from the Chemist (a store) and we talked to her for a while. She needed a vacuum but she didn't have one so we biked ages home and got her one and drove back in the car with it. She was super grateful and maybe something good will come of it....:)

Elder Brinkerhoff and I keep super busy with all our various duties.  It's good since some of our district leaders are struggling. We might start going on even more exchanges to try to help them out....That means we are going to have a pretty dirty flat if we don't keep on top of things haha. Anyways, things are good here in Perth...I saw the weather on C's tv today and Perth is the hottest this week in all of Australia BY we are in for a treat:)

Congrats to Nelson....he sent me and email and informed me all about what went ya brother and Hello to his new Woman you will be seeing me a lot in the future haha. S/O to Rio also...idk quite whats up with him but they are engaged ehhh???  idk haha love those 2.

King, Nana, and Maddy, I am sure you guys will have the time of your lives spending the week with Aunt Jayne  I am sure Maddy is very excited! Love you all! Thanks so much for writing me and have a fun adventure in South America!!! Welcome to the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE:) 

Elder Cordner

J, M, and M. J actually played college bball in the Phillipines. They are doing pretty good. 
They have real intent to know the truth. They read the Book of Mormon in Tagalog every day.
