When we were going to transfers we went to Hungry Jacks (burger king) for a little breakfast lunch and last hoorah together. While we were there, there was a bird in the joint! Thankfully we were the only ones there with the workers. We must of looked like idiots trying to catch this thing! hahah but I caught it! I have it on film too! We had a really good chat to the managers and the workers about who we were and what we do. It was really good! and funny! work!

We have some investigators that were supposed to come along to church and do other things... but they are all being slack! Rarr!! This is eternal life people! Stop being lame! So this week was a bit depressing. But the work goes on. My body is just recently getting used to the mission schedule. waking up in the mornings is usually easy. I just have more will power to get up and more of a reason to get up. I wanna keep the habit of waking up early. It is really good. I am reading Jesus the Christ again. I need some more insights. I am like halfway through all my studies. Halfway through the D&C, Book of mormon, and New Testament... so why not add just one more to it eh?!You can only do so much personal study because most of the time I am studying for the investigators. Trying to think how to teach the principles for them and how to really help them overcome their concerns, so studying for myself has become something you do at lunch, dinner and pday. So I dont' get heaps of time. thats why i'm like halfway through it all.
Elder page is the man. Oh and I have a post card I have meant to send. Fathers Day and Mothers Day are all different down here, so i basically forgot it was Fathers Day in the U.S. this weekend. But your gonna love the postcard... it is crack up.

"My child has fallen among cut throats!! How much is a ticket to Australia?"
We are still in Meadow Heights- aka muslim heights- and living in the 4 man flat. It has been very fun and a good struggle. Thank you for teaching me how to live clean... and how to actually clean.
Life has been going really well! I had the opportunity to give two blessing this past week and they really just helped me out! I am just beginning to learn how the spirit communicates. If you listen .. you can hear it!
