According to Mum Week 33 on the count up

31st December  2015

Just seeing that number 33 weeks that is Insane I can distinctly remember that this time last year I was working at McDonalds (Like literally exactly this time) and It was the worst shift of my LIFE.

But now one year on, here I am in the Bellbird Parks Clerk Office, writing an email to people that I haven't (Bar my Family cause it was Christmas) seen in almost 8 months.

It has been awesome to say the very least, even in the hardest and slowest times there is always the next day to look forward to.

These last 2 weeks have been awesome especially cause it was Christmas.

What's something I learned this week... Anything can Happen with God's help.

When I first go tin the area I met a Woman by the name of Patricia who had been met by previous missionaries. Something that she told me that first visit is that we would never ever see her at Church. Due to some circumstances this week she asked us to come around and just help calm herself down, amazingly it worked and with the help of Scriptures and talking to take her mind off of the main concern we helped the calmness come back in.
Later on in the day we came back to see how she was doing (as per her request) and talked with her for a little bit longer until her daughter's Father came with her daughter back home. After saying a quick pray of gratitude she expressed fully her desires to change and her desire to come to Church this Sunday.

It was awesome for me on two instances. One I got to see God's hand in the work we do. Two I now know how to calm someone down in that situation. I can use that in the future

Love You All and as we all prepare for this New Year I hope there is something that we can do to make the next year BETTER!
