Week 53

Monday was a lot of fun going on a hike with the Shoobridges. We saw some more whales and went to a tower called Boyd's Tower. It was built by convicts a while ago in order to look for whales for whale hunting. It’s a pretty cool stone tower.

Tuesday we spent most of the day in Bega getting our Toyota serviced, and then we did some service at Mandeni, then spent some time with Josh.

Wednesday was Family History and then doing stuff at Debbie's, but we couldn’t do much because it was raining. Then we played Flames of War at game night, which is a table top war game, which is a lot cooler than the game of Risk. Elder Stott loves Flames of War.

Thursday we were going to go over to Norma's, but it was Raining so she didn’t want us to drive that far just to not be able to do anything. So we went to get some work done on the shed. We finished the outside, now all that is left is the inside. Then we went over to Ben and Cymmon's and enjoyed the evening with their Family.

Friday (Hump Day) we helped Ben and Cymmon concrete in the morning and then rushed back to Merimbula for DTM, and then went and visited with the Walkers. Then we spent some time with Sister Shellshear. Then I got to burn my shirt for my year mark.

Saturday morning I ran the Park run in 23 minutes, and then we went and helped J. Pointer look for his lost bird (There are millions of colorful birds in Australia.) Needless to say, we weren't able to find the bird, but we did spend some time going from door to door asking people if they have seen his bird. Then we had McM later that night.

Sunday was pretty normal except my companion gave an awesome talk on the Restoration!

Some awesome experiences that have happened this week have been getting to visit members that we rarely get to visit and being able to build our relationship with them. And Daniel, every time we meet Daniel we can tell that he has been doing his homework and reading and finding questions to ask us, and they aren't the normal questions you get asked as missionaries so it has been a lot of fun trying to answer his questions to help him keep progressing.

That was my week. I love you all, talk to you next week!
