Elder Michael Nelson Sydney Australia Mission 2009-2011
Tuesday, December 7, 2010
What up hommies? We had a sweet as week. We've got some crazy happenings
over here in the Gong. First of all I have a new companion! His name is
Elder Tamatafaarere. Haha....no serious thats his name. I'll give you three
tries to say his name right and if you get it right then I'll uhhh shower
you with missionary blessings...ha :). He's from the beautiful island of
Tahiti. Now some of you may be wondering at this time: "What happened to
Elder Kerr? Anyways Elder T is
with me because we have some French speaking investigators from Africa and
since Elder T is from Tahiti his native language is French so he's our
secret weapon. Man you should see this guy. He is Massive!! I'm serious.
Wait until you see pictures. He's taller than me and about four times the
size of me. Massive as Tahitian. Its pretty fun walking around with him and
seeing peoples reactions. No one has yelled at us since hes been here. Hmmm
interesting. He almost broke our investigators couch too! He's a great
missionary and we're actually from the same intake so we'll go home at the
same time. Tonight we've got some appointments with some French speaking
Africans. Haha I thought it was pretty funny when Elder T. first came here
because we just went African hunting. We just drove around looking for Black
people. Its been awesome. They are so humble.
So Elder Kerr is fine. He's in Campbelltown with Elder Williams. He gets to
hang with Elder Stringam today so he's lucky. Yesterday was an exciting day.
I was priviledged enough to give Johnathan the Holy Ghost. You shouldve seen
him. He came to church in a suit and tie. Man he looked spiffy. He's so
solid right now I hope he stays that way. Now Stephanie is a different
story. Hopefully the ward really picks up their feet now and
helps Johnathan to stay strong in the church and helps Stephanie to come
But, that wasn't the only reason why church was good. We had a few
investigators there! I've told you before but we always struggle getting
investigators to church. I dont know why its gotta be so hard! But
everything paid off this week when Triston and Jacob came to church. I've
told you about Triston eh? He's doing so awesome!! I reckon he'll get
baptized. He already believes that the Book of Mormon is the word of God.
This was just the first time hes come to church and he loved it! He also
just wants to learn more first before he gets baptized but I reckon we'll be
setting a baptismal date with him soon. Also you know Jacob, our Greek
Orthodox friend? Well he came to church too! He got fired from his job! Can
you believe that? I've never heard of a Priest getting fired! Haha oh but I
shouldnt laugh. He's pretty tore up about it. This means he has to go back
to Greece. But Elder Kerr and I feel like this was an answer to our prayers
because since he got fired he had that opprotunity to come to church. He
loved it too. Your probably thinking like many others that he got fired
because he's been meeting with us but I dont see why he would tell anyone
that he's been meeting with us and we've only been meeting with him at his
house so I dont know what happened.
So that was our week. It was a really fun week. We've had many many miracles
happen. Its been so fun finding and teaching the investigators in this area.
I love it here. Even though sometimes it is frustrating I've probably worked
harder in this area than in my other two areas so its been very fulfilling.
I love you all. I know the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is
the only true church upon this church and I'm thankful for the priesthood
and the saving ordinances we are able to perform because that authority. I
know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. Cheers as. FA!
