April 2, 2017


Hey everyone, so this week was a pretty crazy week. For the first time ever on my mission we got confined to our flats because of bad weather. And by bad, I mean SEVERE. There was this massive cyclone that hit Australia farther up north the coast from Brisbane but the rain and wind still reached down to us. So Thursday we got a text saying for all the missionaries to stay in their flats for the day to stay safe. It was a much needed day off. We just laid around and studied, slept, and watched our scanty collection of church DVDs. It was just constant hard rain all day, with no breaks. Fortunately our flat didn't flood or anything.
But the NEXT day was strange, because we woke up and it seriously the nicest weather I've had in Australia so far. And I've been here for over a year now. Not humid, not cold, not too hot, a nice breeze, clear skies. Its just too bad it took a cyclone to get that nice of weather. We had service scheduled for a member but when we tried to get to his house all the roads were flooded. We tried like 3 different ways to get to his house but each way was flooded over. 
It was a great week this week though. Got a lot done. They had a multi stake mini MTC where youth/ysa who are preparing to go on missions went and were taught by RMs for a day. We went to help out doing role playing and stuff like that. It was pretty cool and I got to see a couple people from my first area who were there. Overall pretty A+. We're trying to help our recent convert who got baptized a couple weeks ago get prepared to go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead.
We had an investigator tell us he likes how our church is okay with people getting rich. We tried explaining prosperity is a blessing from living the gospel and not a main priority for members of the church and we help people become self-reliant, but he just kept saying how much he liked that the church doesn't condemn being rich. Interesting guy.
