Hello from Mt Gambier
Things are good, we had a couple of unfamilar faces at church so that was exciting. We got two less actives at church who had not been to church ever since i have been in this town. Emma Bamford brought along her cousin Kristy to church, she has been twice since i have been here. One of the new less actives was great with her, she told a core experience of hers about prayer, she was a less active member even 20 years ago. She prayed to know which church she should get her children baptized in. The very next day the missionaries knocked on her door for the first time in years. She was living out in the country and missionaries never went by there. Until her answer to her prayer. Also she said she remembers her baptism and felt an actual "reborn" experience. She was baptized into a different church some years later and didnt feel a thing. It was good for this less active sister to share those experiences in class to Kristy who is investigating the church.
I am not sure what has happened to Debbie and her family. They have dissapeared off the face of the earth. I havent been able to get in contact with them for some time. Me and Elder Jensen did a quick run to Naracoorte to catch them but the house was dark and nobody home. They could be dead or something. Or on a extended holiday. I am worried about them. Keep them in your prayers.
We are going to continue to work and try and progress this area of the Lord's vineyard.
Sorry this is a short email but i got to go. Love you heaps
