Elder Newman's adventures as a Missionary in the Australia Sydney South Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Another week has gone. This week has flown by. This week was pretty average again, except we were able to have a baptism in the Tongan ward so we went and helped the sisters with that. I gave a talk on baptism for their investigator that was getting baptized. Then after that we had a fafanga (feed), heaps of food. It’s the islander culture, so there was heaps of food there. I think they bought up all the chicken from KFC, then we had Chop Suey (rice noodles and soy sauce and meat), and taro (really dense potato on steroids).
We had a Tongan culture night too. [It was the night before the baptism.] Other than that we have just been shaking members down for referrals and tracting as usual.
