At age 19 I chose to leave my family in Providence Utah for 2 years, to spread the Gospel to the people of New Zealand, so they can be with their families for Eternity...

April 4, 2011

Kia Ora!!

Its been a quiet week in Kiwi-land. Not too much going on. Well, except for the Great New Zealand Muster here in Te Kuiti. In compare to back home, it was about the size of the county fair in Logan, maybe a little smaller. They had one youth ride, and two kiddie rides. Then down the main street they had the road blocked off and stands all up and down the road. Mostly food and souveniers. It started at about 10 in the morning and ended at 2pm. They had people guess how many sheep were going to run down the main street, and two people got it right and they had to split the money. But they ran the sheep down the road at 1pm. It was pretty anti-climatic, they had everybody keep still and be quiet while the sheep ran so that they wouldn't startle and trample people like last year. They "barrier" that separated us and the sheep was basically like an elongated rubbish bag. It was fun though. I'm just gutted that I forgot my camera back at the flat. So sorry, but if you want to see pictures you're going to have to go online and look for the Muster in Te Kuiti.

Other than that not much has happened. Just a trade off with the elder's in Te Awamutu. Since they're in a threesome two of them came down here. Its really weird to work in 3. Did Jake ever do that? And because its April, we have to wear our suit coats after 5pm, so that kind of annoying, because it doesn't cool off until probably 7. And daylight savings was Saturday night. So we're a bit late on that down here. With general conferene we are delayed a week. So I haven't seen it yet. They record it and send it on DVD's. And whats cool is that we're getting a copy to the Te Kuiti Branch, so we don't have to travel to Hamilton.

Not much else coming this week. Thanks for all your support and prayers in my behalf. I need all the help I can get.
