No Choco Cita

G'day Mates!

Transfers have come and gone again. Me and Elder Christiansen are

still companions! Yeah! We were pretty excited to hear the news

because the assistants before were saying they were going to have to

split us up. We're having a lot of success and we're especially

excited to both see John Munday prepare for his baptism in March. We

had two baptisms this weekend!! Woooo! Melesia Hufanga and Angel Lole

both got baptized on saturday. It was a massive baptism. There was a

huge feed afterwards. A couple other people the other elders in our

ward got baptized too so 4 people in the Parramatta ward were baptized

this weekend. This ward knows how to do missionary work.

Elder Stringam has completed his 2 years. Crazy! His family was there

with him at transfer meeting. Then for lunch his family took me and

Elder Christiansen out for lunch. We went to a local Kebab shop. It

was delicious. It was so weird being with Elder Stringams family! But

so fun. He's got a great family. Hopefully the Stringam and Nelson

families will be able to meet up sometime. The Christiansen family

will have to come too :).

I finally got over my flu I had and its been great to get back into

the work. We've got some great investigators. One miracle we had this

week happened on saturday. So we try to find new investigators every

week. We hadnt found any this week. So on saturday night when I was

feeling better we knelt in prayer and asked Heavenly Father to guide

us to find a new investigator. So we had a few potentials in mind and

then we went out looking. We followed up on a couple addresses I had

and man every one of them was FAKE! LIARS! haha man it was rough but

we decided that we would tract a couple houses near one of the

potentials I had. An Indian fella answered the door named Richi and he

is so awesome. He was way interested and so was his friend. We found

two new investigators in those 30 minutes we had to find a new

investigator last week. It was a great testimony builder for me. I

know that God answers prayers. Sometimes, according to HIS will,

almost immediately!

We had a special visitor a couple weeks ago that I didnt tell you

about! Elder Neil L. Anderson of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles came to

our mission! It was such an awesome experience. He was actually

supposed to go to the Brisbane mission but since its so flooded there

he couldnt fly in. He visited us instead and we had a great visit. He

is definitely an Apostle. His insights and testimony were inspiring. I

know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only

true and living church upon the face of this earth. I love you all. I

hope you all had a great week full of smiles and laughs. We have

plenty of reasons to rejoice! Especially to know the Great Plan of


Elder Nelson
