Hello from Mt Gambier!
Monday here was Australian Labor Day and the Library was closed so we switched Preparation Day to Tuesday. My new companion is Elder Clark, he is from Utah. He has been out in the mission about 20 months. This is my first American companion since October last year when i first got transfered to Murray Bridge. So its been a long while. We have taught the Morris family this week about covenants, obedience, commandments in general, Word of Wisdom and the Law of Chasity. We have also watched “The Lamb of god” and “The Restoration”. They are progressing quite nicely. The baptism is still set for October 23rd. We want to teach her everything and be completely prepared before next week. Next week we are going to Adelaide for 5 days for a big training and we are going to stay during the weekend for Stake Conference the following day. This last weekend was the Footy Grand Final, which is like the Super Bowl. We had to scramble and visit people who were either from Queensland or who weren’t drunk, there was pretty much no one on the streets, it was the same last year i can remember. Everyone was watching the game. People from Queensland do not like footy, they like rugby. I am looking forward to General Conference this Sunday. We are trying to invite people to listen to a prophets voice. We have been doing a quite a bit of finding and we have a handful of potential investigators that we are going to follow up with tomorrow.
I am going to show Elder Clark the main things to see in this town. We will climb Mt Gambier and i will try and be better at taking photos.
Love you all heaps,
