Week 51 - Gosnells, Southern River Zone, Western Australia - August 1, 2016 - Transfer #6 in Gosnells

I am pumped city to stay in Gosnells another transfer! My new companion is Samoan, Elder Tua'itanu from Pleasant Grove, UT.  He is the man! He has been out in a country area doing really well. I am excited to be with him.

So We have been teaching M and her son Z and they are doing soooo good. They came to church yesterday and they loved it. A miracle occurred! We went over a few days ago with our WML to see M. When we got in she said she was feeling really sick (she struggles with rare seizures and other tough things). Anyways, she said that she would probably head in to the hospital that night. We then taught her about Priesthood blessings and offered to give her one which she accepted. We went around the next day and she was so happy! She said that normally when she feels that way she can't sleep at all and has to head in to the hospital but after the blessing she went straight to bed and woke up feeling like a million bucks!!! It was a HUGE testimony builder for her especially because she is receiving a lot of negativity for meeting with us from family and friends. Both M and Z are on date to be baptized on the 12th so pray for them. M is trying to quit smoking and we have been working closely with her and the "Quit Smoking Program" so we have a lot of faith it will happen!

Other than that we have been tracting heaps and trying to visit the leaders in the ward to ignite a missionary spark:) It's interesting knocking doors. I would say 70% of the people we talk to are athiest so we gotta really open up their heart and try to tug at their true feelings! There are 3 things that if you hit on will open up peoples hearts quickly.  1. Why do bad things happen to good people/Why so much destruction, pain, and suffering in the world.  2. I want to get rid of feelings of guilt and regret. 3. What is the purpose of life.

I am out of time. I love you all! Have a good week! Thanks for all the letters!!!!
