Letter #44 from Australia

May 22, 2016

Dear Family and Friends,

          I have so much to talk about in this email and so little time, so I hope that it all makes sense and that I will be able to fit it all in! This past week was really good for Elder Halsey and me! We really focused on working with and through the members to try and find new people to teach! We have been visiting a lot of the members, teaching them lessons and then asking them for referrals of any non-member family and friends they know that would be willing to listen to the message of the gospel! Through the whole week we received 5 referrals and it was so amazing to see all of the members really help us out! We were able to set up teaching appointments with the referrals in the homes of the members that gave them to us! We will be teaching them all this next week, but we were able to teach one of them this week and it went so well!

          The name of the person who we taught this past week is Shanae. She is a friend with one of the young women in our ward. She has attended church before, with her friends, in the past, but has never been taught. Well we taught her about the Restoration and The Book of Mormon and it went really well! We invited her to be baptized on the 18th of June and she accepted! So now we have three investigators on date! Shane and Mia Wharemate are doing all right! We haven't been able to teach them in about two weeks because they have been so busy lately! They didn't come to church either, but Shanae did! So that was really good! But Brother Wharemate did come to church. He told us that he wanted to come first to get back into it before bringing his kids along. So hopefully they will come next week! 

          I am so happy to be serving in this area and pray that I don't get transferred. We find out transfer news this Saturday! It is so crazy to think that it has already been 5 weeks! This week is the final week of the transfer and it has gone by so fast! I hope I stay and I hope that Elder Halsey stays as well, but he has been in the area for 3 transfers already, so we will just have to wait and find out! 

          I love you all so much and miss you all like crazy! I hope that you all enjoy your final week of school! Congratulations to all of you who graduated from High School and from Seminary! Keep making great choices and stay safe! 

Elder Wheeler

P.S. Sorry, didn't take any pictures last week, but I will this week!
