Kia Ora Everyone!
Well I hope everyone has had a fantastic week! Our week was pretty busy we had our mission tour with Elder O. Vincent Haleck of the Seventy which was a great experience, we started at the top of the mission on tuesday up in south Auckland and had five of the Zones their for the meeting, The meeting was great but it could have gone a lot smoother, but it was ok cause Wednesday went so much better all of the videos worked and the sound in the building was awesome, where on tuesday it wasnt really working at all! Then on thursday we had our Mission Leadership Council with Elder Haleck and that was really good, all the Zone Leaders went through and gave a report on their zones, and then Elder Haleck and President Rudd just answered questions that anyone had, we came up with some good ideas that we as leaders need to meet with the stake leaders more often and plan some stake activities for members to bring their nonmember friends to.
We had some pretty good lessons for the amount of time that we were in our area though this week, and we are starting to see some of our investigators that havent really been progressing start to move just a little bit forward, but we have also seen some of our investigators who were progressing really well start to move backwards sadly, but we will keep working with them and keep praying for them. One thing that I have really learned this week is how we need to help people act, it's nice to teach a really good lesson, but if they wont act then they cannot really feel the Holy Ghost, so we have decided that now we are going to base all of our lessons off the commitment we want to extend to those we are teaching and we know that we will begin to see success from that.
Once again I appologize for the short email and also the lack of pictures my camera is being really dumb and it wont show any of the pictures on the computer so we are going to sort that little technical difficulty out and I will get heaps of pictures sent to you all!
I love you all and am so grateful for the love and support and all the prayers I can feel them. I hope everyone has a good week! Remember God is our Heavenly Father he loves us all and he knows what is best for us, if we put complete trust in him, he will strengthen us and help us I encourage everyone to remember always to trust our Loving Heavenly Father an you wont go wrong.
