September 18, 2016 Shepparton

Good morfterneveninight everyone! 

This week was good. We worked really hard on the zone meeting, which happened on Friday. It went so well. We got permission to use the internet to make presentations and it was awesome. We just tried to make the meeting really interactive and engaging. We did it convention workshop style and had lots of really cool hands on activities for the missionaries to learn more missionary skills. It was fun and I really hope they liked it! 

Adrian and Rebecca and their kids came to church this week, so that was awesome! Jana also came, and she is doing better. She still wants to be baptized, just not sure when. But she is awesome. 

Church was fun. Every week we teach the youth Sunday School class, and we fill in for others who need help. But this week we basically ran the church. I blessed the Sacrament, my companion played the organ, then during the second and third hours, we had to go on splits with some of the young men so that we could teach the youth, the primary, the high priests group, and another primary class. That was fun. (I'll tell ya, teaching a bunch of fathers about how to have a successful home is a funny experience when you're 19 years old and have never had a home of your own.) I love being in a branch!

The work has been crawling along these last few weeks, but it is about to start picking back up. I can feel it! 

Today we went to a wildlife park with a family in the branch. Kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, emus, dingoes, wombats, Tasmanian devils, and other fun stuff. That was cool! Here's some pictures.  (Sorry, the computer is too to come next week.)

Love you all!
