January 24, 2016 Melton South

G'day everyone! I would like to begin with a shout out to a certain
human person. That certain human person is a female. She has hair on
her head of the red color. She has freckles on her nose. Her eyes
are.... actually nobody really knows what color her eyes are. Green
maybe? This certain red haired freckle nosed rainbow eyed female human
person is turning 13 years old today. Are there any guesses as to whom
I am speaking of?

It's Amy Jane Chappell!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love you sis! You are now officially a teenager. Which means, watch
out Mom and Dad. Here comes the attitude. Or as they say it here,

So this week has been incredible! The Melton ward chapel is being
extended. The renovations will last about a year. By the time it is
done it will be big enough to fit three wards! So as a last hoorah for
the old chapel, we had a ward party that was a potluck dinner. A
potluck dinner with a bunch of Samoans and Tongans means it is a REAL
POTLUCK DINNER. They had a hungi, which is when they dig a hole in the
ground and fill it with rocks and use that as a natural oven. They
smoked three whole pigs in that. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.
Anyway, we invited everyone and heaps of our investigators came!

Riel, Joseph, and Samuel are doing really well. They are now really
good friends with the young men in the ward, which was a struggle for
a while. They are excited for their baptism. And so am I!!!!

The other family that we are working with all the time is the Boyd
family. I don't know how much I have told yous about them but the mom
is a less active and the rest of the family is not members. Single mom
with 5 daughters. They are from New Zealand and they are awesome. The
mom is super keen to have lessons and come to church and everything,
but the girls have been not so keen. But this week that all changed!
The third daughter, Jade (13), went to a young womens activity, and
loved it. So then she went with her mom to the ward party. So then she
and the second daughter Amber (17) came to church with their mom! It
was so awesome! We really care about this family and want them to be
happy so this meant a lot to us. Still working on that oldest daughter
Shay! She will come around sometime.

Elder Seifert and I are having heaps of fun. The work is going really
well. We have been able to go out with members almost every day. I am
loving it!

Well, Bye everyone! TTYNW.
(talk to you next week.)
ILYA (I love yous all)
WLTMFGS (write letters to me for goodness sake)
