May 14, 2017 Frankston

Good morning sweet world.

This week has been pretty solid. We are just trying to build this area up from nothing, and it is taking some time, but I guess that's to be expected. We are starting off with all the part member families in the ward, and so far, no luck, but we haven't been able to meet all of them yet.

So we were going around doing our thing, trying to visit the part member families, and we went to go see this one family in the evening, so it was dark outside. We got out of the car and began walking to the house, and there was one other guy on the road. Of course, he was a dodgy looking guy with a big beard. But we just said hi to him anyway, and he stopped in his tracks and said "missionaries?" When we see signs of recognition, we get so excited. So turns out he is a member from Queensland, who came down to Melbourne to visit his brother and sister who both live in Frankston. He was walking to his sister's house, because she was sick. He said she might want a blessing, but she's not a member, so he decided to just take our number and go ask her, then call us. So we went on our merry way. Within 15 minutes he called us and said that she and her partner both wanted blessings! So we rushed over there. We ended up talking to this family for about an hour. Their names are Will and Bec. They are looking for a church right now! They are honest seekers of the truth, and they loved what they heard from us. Bec is especially excited to read the Book of Mormon. Will had about 10000 questions. It was great. And the funny thing is, the family we had originally been trying to see, didn't even live at that address anymore, so we know we were led there for Will and Bec!

I turned 20 this week! That was weird to think. Thanks Mom for sending the cake mix, I made it and it actually tasted really good! I don't think I've ever done that before. Birthday miracles.

Happy mothers day to all the moms! Or "mums" as they say here. I love you Mom!

Farewell, and Godspeed.
