Gotta love beach junk, I found a new pair of goggles.
This week wasn't as full as we would have liked, but we did get stuff done. Monday was P-day. Tuesday we helped out at the Parker's.
And then Wednesday our District leader came down for tradeoffs and to interview Daniel, and he passed! He was able to get baptized on Saturday which turned out great. The weather could not have been more perfect! We had a program, and it was in the house and the swimming pool and the yard. Bro. Shoobridge baptized and confirmed and gave a talk on Baptism; and President Wright gave a talk on the Holy Ghost; and me and Elder Stott said the prayers and witnessed. His mom was able to come, and I think she really enjoyed it. There is definitely a future missionary opportunity there.

Also, President and Sister Back came down for the Baptism and to interview us, which was great. We got a lot of positive feedback!
A downer of this week was that the flu has been going around, and Elder Stott caught it Friday morning in Canberra so he was up all night and didn't get to go to ZTM. We ended up staying in Canberra for another night for him to recover before we made the drive back home. Hopefully I avoided it. I feel fine, but everyone around here is getting it. Hopefully I stay healthy. But other than that it was a great week.
Love, Elder Newman

Also this is a stingray that has a baby with it.
