Kia Ora everyone!
Well we did pretty good this week here in Te Aroha! After a really good week last week we made some really aggressive goals to get the work moving here. We got out there and made the miracles and met some very prepared people to preach the gospel to. On Friday we had an appointment to go over and teach one of our less-actives but when we got there we found out that he was not home. We decided to go and walk around to try and find some people we could talk to and we saw this lady sitting on her porch. Her name is Katrina and she has had a hard life, her husband died after 10 months of marriage and wants some peace and comfort knowing what his fate will be. We taught part of the Plan of Salvation and set up an appointment for Tuesday where we plan on setting her for baptism.
This week has been full of learning experiences such as the times were Elder Patea and I would slack on small things like getting out of the flat 5-10 minutes late, we would almost always get the door slammed in our face or get yelled at when we got to our first door. We have definitely learned the blessings of exact obedience and now as we are working harder then I have ever before, we cannot afford to loose some of those blessings.
I don't really have too much time because we are getting ready to hike a mountain near Te Aroha but I just want you all to know that I love you and I am so very grateful for all that you guys have done for me and for all the letters/emails of encouragement!
Have a good week!!!!
