What can I say more?

8th May  2017

Yesterday it officially clicked over to 24 months with the badge on. Wow... I have just a few short days left now so I am going to make the most of it.

I love sharing my testimony. I still freak out a little when I do so. I still shake my leg behind the stand like crazy even when I am only standing up there for a minute. But wow. The feeling afterwards is indescribable.

Something that has really stuck out to me this week as I finished the Book of Mormon for my second time while on my mission is the Focus that the Book of Mormon has on Inviting all to come unto Christ. Nephi writes in the 4th Chapter of the Whole Book of Mormon. "For mine intent is that I may more fully persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob and Be saved." or in other words as Moroni Puts it. "Come unto Christ and Be perfected in Him... And if by the Grace of God, ye are made perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the Power of God"   (Moroni 10:32) Which power is to the salvation of Souls. 

This will be my last Email. As next week is Mothers Day. I wish you all the best. I look forward to catching up with all of you sometime in the near future.

I love you all.
I would like to close with this.

We got on the Mormon Newsroom!!

Love you all.

We had Elder Nielsen this week and it is indescribable to be able to explain how awesome that was. But suffice it to say that the Spirit was there in Abundance.

Ohk So I want to start this off with something cool that I found.

So A Mission is 2 years which is 730 Days. However we had a Leap year so it makes it 731. I finish 16 days after I began my mission which makes 747. Which is what I will be getting on on the 747th day. Ohhhhhh So cool. ( I am quietly excited because my companion already thinks I'm weird) 

So this week we were able to do some awesome Service for a Tree Farm and help with the flood clean up. So we got super muddy. Pictures are below. It was awesome. One of my favourite things about being a missionary really. It was an awesome Day.We had approximately 40 missionaries with missionaries from 4 Zones and 3 stakes. As well as heaps of members.

On Tuesday we went down with just 6 of us and then we got asked to participate so we coordinated with some of the other Zones to make Saturday Happen and it was awesome.

On Sunday at the Samoan Branch we arrived and the Branch President pulled us into his office, and we were sitting there thinking "Did we do something wrong" and then he says. I forgot to ask you the other night but can you two share your testimonies. So it will be you, then your companion and then the intermediate Hymn. And then the Final speaker. 
So we thought about it and realized he wasn't just asking us for a short 20 second testimony but a 10 minute talk. Luckily we have the Spirit and we were both able to produce a 10 minute talk each. in about 5 minutes. Love the Gospel.

That was about it.

We have Mission Tour with Elder S. Gifford Nielsen. and then ANZAC Day Next week so P-day will be on Wednesday next week. And then the week after we have Temple P-Day on Thursday.

Love you all
