October 19, 2015 Melton

Mahal ako ng mga babae

So I am getting transferred! I don't know where I am going yet, just
know that I am going. I'll find out on Tuesday and then I'll go there immediately! I'm already all packed. I wasn't expecting this at all. Elder Sifuentes also got transferred. He is needed as a zone leader somewhere so we both ended up leaving. It's a weird transfer day because all three of the greenies in the zone are being transferred. Weird eh? But I am excited to meet my new companion and new ward and new investigators! It is sad because there are 3 investigators here preparing for baptism that I won't get to be here for. But I am sure I will have success in my next area!

This morning we got up at 4 to go on a hike as a zone and watch the sunrise. The zone leaders planned it and got permission to do it. It was really fun. Again, these ain't no real mountains. But close

I did an exchange earlier in the week with one of the zone leaders, Elder Parsons. He's the man. I led the area a couple of times on exchanges. I thought it would be really hard, but it wasn't bad. We tried out our new door approach. We do this when it's around dinner time. It goes like this.
"how are you?"
"Sorry mate I'm busy"
"Oh busy with what?"
"We are eating dinner."
"Oh great! Perfect timing."
*begin taking off shoes and entering*
"whoa mate what are you doing?"
"...we're eating dinner right?"
"not you!"
*look sad and disappointed*
"Oh hey have you blessed your food yet?"
"have you blessed your food? We can bless it for you!"

Guess how well that worked? It actually made the guy laugh and he listened to us for a while and  accepted a Book of Mormon! Haha I don't know if I will ever use that again, but it was great.

Sorry, no reports on investigators this week because it was just so crazy! We had heaps of meetings in Werribee and it takes ages to get there every time cause we have to take the train. But it is really fun because we get to talk to heaps of people on the train/bus. I also was sitting next to a woman that looked just like Scarlet Johanson with a nose ring, and a man that looked just like Hugh Jackman except he was losing his hair. I wanted to take a picture, but I don't think they would've taken that very well.

I love you all!
Have a great week!
