More Crazy Stories!

My week has been incredible! I just Love it here! So I guess where to start this week, Well I was able to teach Nikki a few times, which was awesome, we went on splits on Tuesday Night and I went with Drew and we went to Nikki's and I taught the Word of Wisdom, (recap) as I already taught that on the Sunday, just seeing how much was understood and how I could teach it better but she just knows so much!!! She is so awesome, just the best investigator ever! she has become one of my closest friends and her kids and the best, Felix drew a picture of me yesterday when we were at Stake Conference and It was so sweet it is says 'Elder King' on it and looks like an Elf hahaha It puts the biggest smile on my face, he also drew a Lion in my planner, and it makes me so happy and to think one day when ever i have children will be so amazing! Then after recapping the word of wisdom I taught the Law of Chasity, It was the funniest and best lesson, I will probably have on my mission, just so many jokes were made, and she said she loved the lesson and plus she is already living the Law of Chasity now and has been for a while, so no problems there, with just me and Drew there is was such a laugh a good time, Drew was perfect fellowship for her, just a great guy and his inputs are the best, the Lesson was also so great as it was so heartfelt, Me and Nikki were talking about how we know we were meant to have meet each other, how much like we care for each other along those lines and about how when Felix grows up on about how she would like him to go on a mission! That would be so awesome! We know we are really great friends for all eternity! and we were on about coming to each others weddings! I was thinking I could also see Milan be baptized next year when she turns 8 :) and That is awesome to think about that I could be there when Nikki goes through the temple, we taught Nikki her last lesson yesterday after stake conference about Tithing and Fast Offering and we planned the Baptismal Program and I'm so grateful I get to be a witness to watch her enter the waters of baptism :) And to open up with a prayer to invite the spirit,  and all these things, one of the hymns are 'Famlies can be together Forever' I have meet quite a few people from Spokane here!  We are on about how small a world it is, like the woman I met from Spokane yesterday while I was out talking to people along the Burleigh Beach Esplanade. Also Kate Mathieson had her farewell this week! I could only make 30mins of it, as we were on a tight schedule and had to sneak out early because we had to get back, one of her best friends just got called to the London South Mission! It is weird to think that Kate is living this week on the 28th! I will see her one last time before she goes sometime this week and give the Book of Mormon to her parents, which they can hand to my parents etc! If you type in 'KATEY'S FAREWELL' on to Youtube you might be able to find a video with loads of pictures of her growing up the one we watched, and someone playing the Uke and singing about Katey, he used to be in my home ward back home way before I joined though, still a small world! Then me and Elder Eldridge had the weirdest experience this week we were going to teach our investigator and we go to his apartment, he comes out super drunk and then his Gay friend walks out buttoning up his shirt, and it was so weird, we go inside and then because they are both drunk they don't know how to tie a tie, so I'm trying to teach him and as I'm teaching the investigator,he puts his face to my face and starts growling at me and grinding his teeth and his eyes are so crazy, we realized there not just drunk as but they are on hard out drugs, we know It's time to get out a quick, he then starts to get aggressive towards me and wants to fight me! he throws a punch a my face and stops just before my nose I did not move I just stood there and tried to reason with him saying about how we have caught you at bad time, we will see you another time, as he is fine before, he then wants me to hit him in the face and and continues to get aggressive and growling at me, while the Gay friend is like you need more drugs! we got out of there and fast, we just walked! It was such a crazy experience, we both got out and were like what just happened :P Well Amery, that was interesting to say the least :P Also  I had something stupid happen, I have had a bad toe for a while now, now I have no big toe nail :/ It is sickening I had to pull it of last night, as it was lose, I know you probably don't want to know but that is what I was up to last night, wrestling with my Toe, It finally came off as it was all nasty and black, so Then i have just been disinfecting it, I hope it heals, I don't want it getting infected :P but it had to come off, it has been damaged for years now, but last night just ruined a member stepped on it and it pretty much just wrecked it even more so i kind done surgery on myself :P All is well at the moment though hahaha! Also this week I went on Trade off's with the Zone Leaders and I went to Mudgeerba, with Elder Carling from Utah :) He is my good friend and is super awesome! We picked up some mini missionaries from centery and Brisbane Stake, they are 1st cousins and are Samoan they are awesome, they are only 16 but seem so much older, we got on sooooo well, I took one out GQ'ing and we handed out 3 Books of Mormon and all the things we had on us in a short time and then I took the other one out Tracting which was awesome, Then We got a phone call and I had to go to Robina Hospital and give this lady a blessing :) As i was doing i was nearly crying, it was pretty emotional, but so awesome! So today I was studying 3rd Nephi chapter 11 and just got so much out, I could study this one chapter for hours! I Love reading the Book of Mormon! Also i have been able to share my conversation story loads, last night in fact I was asked to share it again as they really wanted to here it then the night before, in full detail as well! I'm always sharing it as people are really interested! I LOVE THIS GOSPEL AMERY AND I CANNOT IMAGINE LIFE WITH OUT IT!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE THIS CHURCH AND I LOVE ALL THE PEOPLE IN IT!! Love Elder King, XXX

4 months down this week!!

Sorry I havent posted in a few weeks! I have just started school today, so ive been busy moving in and getting things ready! Sam has not said a lot these past few week about his mission! I wish I knew more. He also has been having computer trouble at the library where he emails. I thought I would post a little bit for those that are checking the blog! He has been teaching a lot of people and really loves his investigator named Nikki. She is planning on getting baptized and he is so excited for that! This week he will be out for 4 months!! It is going by so fast, but so slow at the same time! Thanks! Also, here is a link to his "I'm a Mormon" profile page that he created before he left. It has his testimony and things about him and his faith on it for everyone that would like to read it. :)

 The week has been going well I'm loving my new companion, he is the man just a really great guy, we get on super well and both love a good laugh, he gets on really well with the ward.  I eat at members house only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday however I can eat at a members house from Monday to Thursday but only if there is a non member there! so hopefully i will be going around the Mathieson's for dinner soon and Nikki will be coming so that will be awesome, I honestly can't tell you how excited I am for Nikki to be Baptized on the 29th of this month not very long.  It will get pretty cold in the coming months, its so weird for me to think that it is only going to get hotter and hotter here! It is going to be so humid as well! I will have to have like a BBQ or something! and that sounds awesome!  there are some really tough days, like crazy days, up so early working as hard as we can until bedtime! but it is all worth it!! Also Tell Joe, without him or his family, i would not be here or where I am today! Tell him, i can never Thank him or his family enough for all that they done for me! and yea I met a guy who worshiped the Sun, it was sooo weird, some random Italian man who was old hahah, trying to get out of that home was crazy, but i was not trapped in it hahhaha! I have met some crazy people here on the Gold Coast, you really do get the weirdest people haha! but you got to Love them! The mission is going well! Love you all! Elder King xxx
