Hello from Murray Bridge!
This has been a good week. We had 5 people come to church today. Michael and Lee couldn’t make it to church though because as it is getting close to their wedding this coming Wednesday they have heaps of family over. Pretty dodgy family as well. We got a less active sister who came to church the first time this millennium with her Partner. Their names are Karmel and TK. Karmel is Rosetta’s daughter. TK has never been to a church in him life, we taught him the Plan of Salvation and he was just about crying. There is a great chance he will be sentenced on the 6th of April and get locked up. He persuaded Karmel to wake up and keep their commitment to go to church. He sincerely wants a change in his life. Perhaps going to prison will humble him even more. We also got 3 other children of Rossetta’s to church. We got (10)Josh, (12)Kenan and (16) kirtly to church. Kurtly wants to get baptized in April. He is a good kid just needs that direction. We taught him the restoration this week along with his mother together and they both cried during the lesson. We are working heaps with this family and there is heaps of potential. He had a court hearing this last Friday. Kurtly stole $15,000 worth of jewellery. But fortunately he will not be locked up. Kurtly has changed ever since his head injury; he doesn’t need to go threw that punishment he wants to end his past lifestyle.
Patrick Hill was in Adelaide all week so we haven’t taught him anything or really got a hold of him since he committed to be baptized. We have a set appointment with him on Wednesday and we will get him back on board and closer to coming unto Christ.
Lily and June should be back anytime now. I fear I might get transferred next week and Miss Lily and June and never see them again. I hope I stay in Murray Bridge. This has been my favourite area. Next week I will have been in Murray Bridge 6 months. I want to stay longer.
We are working heaps with the Aboriginal network. Just recycling threw trying to find that individual or family that is prepared to hear the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and accept it. This will be a crazy week with the wedding and the baptism of Michael and Lee, it will be very eventful.
Have to go now love ya heaps
