Hello from Murray Bridge!
Kevin has committed to be baptized on January 10th 2010! We are so excited. We were teaching him The Plan of Salvation when he committed. We had a good day at church. We once again had 6 investigators at church this Sunday. Four different investigators than the previous Sunday. So hopefully we can get all 10 of these investigators at church. Yesterday at church we had Kevin, Bart, Lily/June, Peter and Andrew. Andrew is an aboriginal guy, first time at church. Michael and Leigh were in Mt Barker visiting family. They do not have a baptismal date, but they have a wedding date. They are getting married February 14th 2010! Then we will baptize them. Krystal, their daughter, should be turning 8 within the year so that will be another baptism. Bart is staying at and watching over Sister Turner’s house while she is in Malaysia on holiday. This is good because now we have a good environment where we can teach Bart. So now he is progressing. We have given heaps of books and he is reading them. I think it’s only a matter of time before the spirit works with him. Softens his heart, realizes he needs to be baptized with authority and commits to baptism. Chen Wei came to church today. He has not been to church since he was confirmed in September. His English is horrible, so he has been taking English classes every Sunday morning. Fortunately the English class is on holiday so he came to church. Good things are happening in Murray Bridge. Even though everyone is busy as, the work is progressing.
I will probably call you the morning of the 26th of December. Like 8 o’clock or so. Boxing Day for me. Christmas day for you. We will spend December 25th and 26th at the mission home. We will sleep at another missionaries flat or a members home.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Love ya heaps
