Week 85 - Perth, Western Australia - March 29, 2017 - Pure

Hey Family! 

P day was today because we are heading to the temple. 

We have been locating all of the massive old apartment complexes in the city and have started tracting out heaps of them. It's pretty awesome.  We have found a lot of people who are humble and pretty keen:) 

So the Chinese miracle that overheard our conversation and came to church told us he isn't interested anymore...aka he felt the spirit and he realizes how hard all the change is going to be and he got scared...we tried to go over and talk to him but he wouldn't answer...

We tracted into a golden Potential the other day named S, an Aussie guy who wanted to get rid of feelings of guilt and regret. We were able to teach him and help him offer his first ever prayer....we knelt down and he gave a touching prayer. We asked him how he felt...He told us he was feeling it big time....anyways we set him on date and we were pumped but then he texted us and told us not to come around any more...haha. These people just get scared of change....We went around and tried to tell him we know what he was feeling but he still declined....Change scares people more than anything...

A is still struggling to kick the smoking but we are working closely with him every day. We have faith he can do it!

It's funny how the world, when confronted with God's Truth as revealed through His  Prophets will say..." I'm not going to let someone else tell me how to live my life, I want to be unique, I want to be an individual, I want to be different" and then they all follow the same typical crowd doing the same typical worldly things....If you want to be unique, if you want to be different, if you truly want to know your individual worth, follow the Savior and strive to become like Him. The most unique thing you could do is to have your spirit be in complete and utter control over the desires of the flesh...There are very, very few people on this earth who can achieve the true desires of their heart uninterrupted by the Degrading, Habitual, Diseases of this world.

I am experiencing true Joy out here in the field! I love you all:)

Elder Cordner's mom and dad hope this is dinner with other missionaries and not
members since shirt is untucked and said missionary looks a little unkempt.
How did the Trevor Toolson from Mitch and Trevor's Innocent Chimp video get to Australia?
