Dear Family & Friends,
The work is exploding in the area and the Lord is blessing us so much!!! We have had a lot of success in these past couple of weeks with the investigators that we are working with! Last week, as you know, we found a lot of new people to teach and so with that, this week we taught so many lessons! We were really busy though and had to move swiftly and with purpose as we moved from one appointment to another so that we weren't late! The Lord continues to bless us and I am so grateful for all that He helps us with! It is truly humbling to recognize how much His guiding hand helps us everyday!
Our investigators are doing really well! We are trying our best to learn Nepalese and so far it is going all right! Hah It is definitely a lot easier to speak than read or write! If you want to know why I say that, look up some Nepalese words online! Hah so far, we know how to teach the message of the Restoration in broken Nepalese! The Nepalese families that we are teaching crack up whenever we say something in Nepalese. I haven't figured out yet if it is because we are butchering it or because we are two white guys and a Fijian trying to speak their language! Hah But it is amazing to watch how the Lord helps us! We had an amazing experience with one of our investigators this week named Moni. We were praying so hard and so specifically that we would be blessed with the gift of tongues and that he would be blessed with the gift of understanding. As we taught him, a sweet and peaceful feeling entered the room and we were able to teach him in a way where he understood exactly what we were saying! It was amazing and we were so grateful to Heavenly Father for His help.
Pretty cool statistic that I counted up the other day. Over the course of my mission, I have taught people from 25 different countries! From Nepal to Ireland to Uruguay to Ethiopia! Melbourne is such a diverse place and it continues to blow my mind! I am doing really well and besides trying to learn Samoan and now Nepalese, the mission is going really well! I love you all and hope that you are doing really well! Keep up the great work and shoot me an email if anything cool or funny happens! Have a great week!
