Meeting "Old Friends" at Mission Leadership Council

Okay so something really great happened this week. We went to follow up with a former investigator, and she wasn't home...BUT, we met a woman named I-----, who is GOLDEN. We taught her, and set up another appointment for yesterday. Yesterday, we taught her a SOLID restoration lesson AND, committed her to baptism!!! She is seriously SO golden. She obviously still has a lot to learn before she gets baptized, but she is on the path!! It was so awesome.

Last week was Mission Leadership Council. We got to set mission goals for the upcoming month, and it was really neat to be a part of it. We set very high goals for us missionaries that are in leadership positions, because half of the mission's success has to come from us. Sister Lee-Lo and I have our work cut out for us this month! But in the strength of the Lord we can do all things. (:

Lets see, who else was at Mission Leadership Council...? That's right, Elder Cook. It was great to see him, he is an awesome leader and contributed a lot to the meeting. I will admit that I was very nervous leading up to the meeting. But that was NOTHING compared to how nervous I was during it...especially since Sister Lee-Lo and I had to model teaching an investigator at the end. Which we did, and it was fine. But seriously. Just imagine how weird it is, sitting in a meeting for 3 hours with your mission president and your boyfriend who isn't really your boyfriend because he's actually a zone leader in your mission.

Afterwards, we all went to a delicious restaurant called Nando's, and we had a chance to talk for a minute. It was good, very missionary-y. We snapped a picture, and I'm sure you can see that we didn't feel as awkward as we did in the first picture we took.

Sister Lee-Lo and I had the chance this week to go down to Augusta, which is about an hour and a half south of Busselton. There is a woman there that we really needed to visit, but until now we haven't had enough kilometers to make the trip. Augusta is BEAUTIFUL, and while we were there we got to see the lighthouse. Australia is gorgeous.

We went on exchanges with the sisters in Murdoch; Sister Turvey and Sister Tanaka. It was SO fun....I love all the sisters in this mission. They are the elect. (:

Alright family, I hope you have a wonderful week!
