So today is Transfer day!!! This is it, my last Transfer!!! It's going to the be the best one ever!!! I'm excited to let you know about it, I'm so happy I'm staying on the Sunshine Coast and all and Finishing here, the work is going actually amazing, Toni, the single mum is just loving the church and cannot wait to be baptized on the 28th of this month Ahhhh so exciting, I Toni and her kids got to watch another baptism of a members child in the ward and all the kids over the age of 8 want to get baptized :D There is Flynn age 12, Jed age 10, Matilda age 8, Millar age 6 and Olive age 2. :D The Best family, Love them so much, They are so happy here and we went to Lions Park again on Sunday after church had a kick around with the kids, some soccer, then got to teach Toni and then got to teach her yesterday and we are going to arrange to go to Cotton Tree Park and play some sports with the kids and teach her, we are trying to see her as much as possible. We Also have started to teach another woman called Jacqueline and she is in her late 50's we got a phone call from this member saying, My friend she wants to learn about the gospel, we went taught her the Restoration and committed her to baptism for the 14th of March and she said Yes, but we are going to move the Date forward as we feel she will be ready before then, we also had this same member bring another friend to church, got a phone call on Sunday morning saying my friend Carmen and her son Dallas have been wanting to come to church for ages, I should have invited them sooner, but they are coming today about 10mins after the phone Carmen rocks up to church in her red Hummer, she wants to be taught and we know she can be Baptized soon as well, We also had some 14 and 15 year old girls come to church who our friends with that members daughter and they want to start being taught and so do there parents and grandparents. We are also teaching a woman called Natalie and she came to church the other Sunday, she is doing really great. We Know this will be a smashing Transfer, going to go as Hard as I can here in the Sunny Coast!!! I Love it here in Paradise!!! when the members found out I was staying here, they were cheering and shouting with Joy, I know a few our going to come to the Airport and see me off!!! It was also funny as well as after the Super Bowl last week, I got back after emails and checked the mail in our box outside our apartment and I got my USB back from my friend who was borrowing it and on the Letter to me it said to 'Elder Go Hawks' the return address 'The Superbowl' Then he was also borrowing a not pad of mine in with some info and I got in back and it said 'I Love you man, from Elder E, I'm two down from the Water Tower at Rexburg, here's , my number call me hun ;) So I will definitely catch up with him after, it was funny as remember last week how I said I'm going to go call my boy and he will be so upset the Sea Hawks lost, well this was all from him :) One of my close friends Elder Ly Waut from Tahiti, right now as I email this to you, is on a plane heading back home, He is finished already, he called me last night to say goodbye and we just had a crack up time on the phone just messing around, I'm definitely going to hit up Tahiti. I also got to Interview someone this week called Joy from India, I interviewed his wife for baptism a while back, well he passed ;) and got baptized on Saturday morning and now there daughter is going to be baptized, it's so exciting, we had the best Curry after the interview, I smashed it haaha, then after we had Toblerone chocolate. It's crazy to think there is less then 2 months now!!! and that Valentine's day is coming up. I have heard back home that it is really cold and the snow has came!!! I hate the cold hahah, loving this weather for life!!! So Also I have to tell you about this awesome experience we had, we got a phone call to help with service moving people's furniture for them as we were coming back after helping out we see a woman standing on the road and that her car has just stopped, in the middle of an intersection and no one had helped her, so we pull up and get out and push her car for ages for her as there is no where we can place it, we pushed for a long time until we could get it into an appropriate place and all and we parked in the spot so well, we had no idea how we done it for her, but she was so grateful got out, and was just thanking and was so appreciative of the situation, we were in our own clothes in our sweatpants and my panda t-shirt ;) with our name badges on and she knew who we were she was like do you know this family and we were like yes we had dinner with them on Monday night, she was like I used to take the missionary lessons, my husband at the time now my ex was about to get baptized but when we got a divorce, she was close to baptism and wanted to repay us so now we are going to her house this Saturday for a Pancake Breakfast!!! And we will teach her also, I know it was not by chance that we happened to be driving down that road at the time and I know that we meant to help her and meet her and all I know the Lord's hand was in this work, I know it's unfortunate she had a falling out with that member we had dinner with because of something in the past, but we spoke to that member about how we met her and we know no matter what regardless of what has happened in the past, everything will be ok and that is why we have forgiveness to move on together so the member said as she started to cry I have been praying for her for ages I'm so happy for this experience I will contact her and sort out everything it was a great experience. :D Know I have to give a massive shout out to CAITLYN FOR A HAPPY BIRTHDAY THIS COMING VALENTINE'S DAY!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAITLYN HAVE A GREAT DAY!! I LOVE YOU AND THE KIDS!!! It was also funny this week as I went on Trade-off and we got locked out the bathroom from the outside, no one was in the bathroom, but we were locked out, it was crack as we all needed to go, we were like what do we do haha, then got a clothes hanger and unlocked the door lock, like a sneaky secret agent or something!!! I also got to teach these incredible Chinese people on Trade-off as I was in the Nambour area, It was the best to teach them as they came straight from mainland China, have never heard of God and it was so sweet to hear them tell me, they are our age, she says 'I Never knew there was a Purpose to life, but know I do and that changes everything'' I will prayer tonight she also wants to get baptized and we will make that happen back in Hong Kong, a few calls and she will continued to be taught out there and all :D I also Loved just chilling at Coolum Beach on Saturday Arvo, just eating some good food and just soaking up the sun and loving it. Well that was the week!!! It was Boss, just making the most of it and all, I hope you have a great week!!!
