Another great week!

August 4th 2013
             This week has been great and I was able to go on a trade off with the zone leader, So i went with me and my good friend Elder Double' from Hamilton New Zealand and I went spent the day in the Mudgeeraba area and It was such a great day, just went out door knocking and had 2 really great lessons with non members and less actives, we shared all about the Book of Mormon and watched a short mormon message about the Book of Mormon and the video was based in London. So this week was also awesome because a few weeks back we were knocking on doors and I speaking to this lady in are 50's and she was really interested and wanted to learn more, weeks had gone by and we kept trying to see her again and she was really sick, but this weel we were able to have a lesson with her and it was probably the best lesson I have had on my mission so far, I always slowly progressing with my teaching we taught and went over the restoration and throughout the whole lesson she was on about how peaceful she felt when we were sharing and testifying to her and how she knows that the message we share with her is true, the reason we found out she was so interested is because a while back she done a survey to find out what relgion she was nearest to and Mormonism came up at the top so when i knocked on her door that rainy day a few weeks ago, it must have been a sign for her, I committed her to Baptism and she said possibly we are going to see her again this Friday and I have a good feeling we can hopefully get a date with her, she is really excited to see us again and, then staright after that lesson we went and taught this man named Nathan who is in his 30's his parents are strong Catholic and do not like the idea of him joining the church however, he is strongly thinking of it so we are going to be teaching him the 3rd lesson this week the Gospel of Jesus Christ and again commit him to baptism and he knows it is the right thing it is just his family who are not that happy. We also had another great lesson with this recent convert called Caitlin and now Caitlin got baptized early June, June the 8th she is 23 and is the only member in her family as well she has 5 siblings! and her parents are Catholic :p but she is awesome she found out about the church through her boyfriend who is thinking of a mission and is awesome we went over the Plan of Salvation with her which is one of my favourite lessons to teach and one in my personal study time I have been going over a lot lately :) after that we had an awesome Breakfast is Australia 'Brekky 'of Pancakes, Ice Cream, strawberries and of course Bananas and also Bacon it was a mean feed :) 
              Yesterday was also great as we were out last night at Burleigh Beach GQ ing people or golden questioning them as it is known and finding out a bit about them and this man from Brazil called Thiago ran up to us like Elders how is it going and hugges us and he is a less active and so is his parents and they live in our area Mermaid Beach and he said we need to go and see them, and gave us all there details and numbers so I phoned the dad today and we are going to go see him and his wife sometime this week to share a message :) We also were able this week to teach a Jehovah Witness man from Italy who was interested, and seeming as her is Jehovah Witness they usaully just want to bible bash with you but not this one! I spoke to him about the Book of Mormon and gave him and he was so happy to get one, which was awesome it is not everyday a JW expects the book of Mormon. :) We got a few potentials this week which was awesome the work in our area Burleigh Heads is really picking up! serving here on the Gold Coast is awesome and is really great :) Later today I phoning this man who we meet in the supermarket who Is interested in learning more he gave us his phone number and was eager to set up an apointment i have spoke to this man quite a few times so hoping something will happen there, we also met this less active guy this week called Sam who is just such a good guy, he is 23 and is thinking of a mission and loved meeting us and we are seeing him again tonight so we will hopefully help him work towards going on a mission, he has just started coming back to church :) He is full of good intnetions and has strong desires and also wants to baptized his best freind he has a strong impression, his best friend she is not a member but he pictured her at her baptism and all he was sharing this experience with us which was awesome:)
                 That is really exiciting about McCalls Bf getting called to Uruguay, i met this woman last year on the plane as i was flying from Salt Lake City to Dallas Fort Worth Texas and we were talking for ages, at the point i has only been a member for 4 months but i remember how much she wanted to learn more with the missionaries as i asked if she would like to learn more, so i when i got back to the London Temple i got a Book of Mormon in Spanish and Gospel Principles in Spanish and all the pamphlets in Spanish and sent it to her in Uruguay as she gave me her address and what not all i know is her name is Victoria, she lives in the capital of Urguay and says is it Beautiful there :) You never know maybe they got baptized her and her family or maybe McCall's BF Stirling who is going there on his mission will find them and baptize them as they have already been prepared. I hope all is well. Love Elder King XXXX
