September 4, 2016 Shepparton

("Australia is entirely peopled with criminals...")

Good morning sweet world. I had no idea what to write for the subject line of this email so I went to a Princess Bride quote about Australia. Go-to movie. You're welcome.

So this week...stuff happened... I am sure stuff happened... I am struggling to think what happened though! Time is really meshing together. I can never remember what happened this week, this month, this year. Everything jumbles up in my mind. 

We are going to the  Mission Leadership Council this week and we have been asked to speak at that, plus we have a zone meeting coming up and we have big ideas for it, so we did a lot of planning this week. We are really trying to make a positive change in our mission culture and we are starting by making the mission meetings engaging! (I know, crazy idea) but we are excited.

We taught Neal and Jana this week, and they are still doing awesome. The wedding will be this Saturday, and then baptism 2 weeks later! It is awesome. 

We also saw Adrian and Rebecca. I will send a couple of pictures of their adorable twin babies. They are my favorite. Adrian and Rebecca are so awesome. We are really trying to help Rebecca feel more comfortable praying out loud, but she is praying on her own which is awesome!

Last Monday we were at the grocery store and this guy who was clearly an islander of some sort walked up to us and started talking to us. Turns out he is a member, but hasn't been in a long time. But he has been wanting to come back to church. Once he saw us he was so happy and we set an appointment to see him. We saw him later in the week. His name is Jared, and he is HUGE. Big guy. He is super cool. He wants to learn the lessons again then come to church! Yay for hiding less active members!

Today we will practice some baking and make some cinnamon rolls. Then we will drive down to Melbourne and stay overnight with some other Elders, then have MLC tomorrow morning! Should be exciting! 

Love you, Elder Chappell
