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...

June 11th + Transfers

Kia ora!

     Before I forget, transfers are this week.  So I'll let you know what happens next week.  Its pretty fun being the district leader who gets the calls about who's going where.  I think I'll probably get shifted for my last 2 transfers.  I'm thinking maybe down to Gisborne, or Manurewa/Papakura.  Not too much happening this week sadly.  We were supposed to have a baptism, but because Siaosi didn't come to church he doesn't qualify till the 23rd.  
     This week was pretty good.  We started off really good, but things started falling through towards the end of the week.  I feel we're doing a lot better eliminating missionary error, but I know we still have work we can do.  We made progress with pretty much all of our investigators, and got a really keen new investigator.  
     I'd say a few of our biggest concerns are getting our members involved in the teaching process, and our investigators dropping lessons.  We're using a new idea for getting members to lessons.  We made a calendar and had the members sign up on a day they would open their homes for us to bring and teach investigators at their house.  So we're going to see how this goes.  
     We had a keen new investigator this week named Siaosi.  He referred himself through the office wanting to know how to "become Mormon."  He's been to church twice already and has started to quit smoking and drinking.  So we taught him, gave him a plan and set him for baptism on the 16th.  But for some reason he didn't come to church, and so we're going to have to reset him for the 23rd.  
     So thats our plan for this week, getting our investigators to members homes, and having them invite them to 
church and other things.

Eat, drink, and [be merry, for tomorrow we die]

A member brought us roast duck for dinner...not my favourite.
