Hump Day!!

Kia Ora Everyone!

Well hope everyone’s week was great! Our week down here was very crazy!

So on Tuesday we were at President Rudd’s house planning for our Zone Conferences we are having this week, and then he starts to tell us that he got a call from the Area President who told him that D. Todd Christofferson is coming to New Zealand and wanted to have a missionary conference now this was on Tuesday that we found this out and the conference was on Saturday so we had to hurry and organize how to get 200 missionaries up to Auckland and then figure out seating and all sorts of stuff but it all worked out really well and the conference was amazing!  I can now say that I have shook Elder Christofferson’s hand twice!  The whole time he was cracking jokes and answering questions.  It is really cool to see how great of a knowledge they have of the scriptures and just how they can flip to scripture after scripture and answer all the questions so well it was so cool!  There were lots of other really good talks also but don't really enough time to write everything!

Anyway after that we came back to Hamilton and we went and visited one of our investigators and we were going in planning on teaching him about the Doctrine of Christ or the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we had this nice plan set out and we went in and we just started talking about the Book of Mormon ended up answering most of his questions and literally everything he said you can just tell that he has really been prepared to receive the gospel and so then in the lesson we invited him to come to church and he said yeah i was actually thinking about asking you where it was so i could come and me and elder Tibbitts were just like ok this guy is awesome! haha anyway he came to church and loved it literally the whole meeting seemed like it was tailored around his needs and the best part was he recognized it and was like wow that was just for me!

We also had another family come to church the Dad is a member just hasn't been active for a while we have been helping him quit smoking and he is doing really good! he has a 9 year old son who is not baptised and a 7 year old daughter who is turning 8 in a few weeks and they both want their Dad to baptise them so we are working really hard to help the dad to come back to church and be able to quit smoking so he can do that for his kids.   And yesterday a little after sacrament started we looked out the doors and saw them walk in and that was just the best thing ever it was so good to see them! That probably made my whole week!

But this week was great we had so many wonderful lessons and just all around good visits all week.  

This week we have our Zone Conferences and so we will be preparing for those today because the first one is tomorrow and then the other two are on Wednesday and Thursday and i will have to give my training three times each day so if we do our math 3 X 3 = 9 so i will be giving my training nine times and that will just be crazy so i could really use those prayers haha.

But that is all for this week it was a really good week and it was so fun to be able to hear another Apostle my testimony was strengthened so much by his Witness it was incredible how powerful the spirit was when he bore witness you couldn't deny it the spirit hit me like a rock or something harder than that it was more like a train but that doesn't really describe it good enough the spirit hit me really hard and I know that he is an Apostle of Jesus Christ without a doubt.  I love you all and am so grateful for all of you and the ways that you all have blessed my life.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Love you all!
