Been a pretty good week here in Te Aroha!
Even though conference was last week for all you guys on the other side of the world, it didn't get to New Zealand until this week, they are kinda slow with stuff like that haha :). It was great to watch our General Authorities give some much needed guidance and I came out with a notebook full of stuff! My favourite talk was during the Sunday Afternoon session by Elder Durrant about 'ponderizing' scriptures and how it can help. I have already started this little challenge and the one that I am picking for this week is Alma 7:11-12, I am studying about the Atonement this week to help one of our investigators learn to better use the atonement in his life.
We spent most of the week contacting referrals and doing service so we didn't get to spend much time out knocking doors but we did teach some of our less active families and set up some appointments this next week for dinner and a lesson so we should be getting fed most of the week! We haven't seen Paul since Wednesday when we helped him move some tires off of the maize pile on his farm but he said he has been praying and reading but since it was GC he didn't come to church. We are seeing this week and we should be going over to give his wife a blessing so we will have to see about our commitment then. Other then a few people we met for the first time it was a pretty slow week for work but we managed to build some relationships with our members which is good because they gave us some referrals!!!
