I just love your emails, Dad. I love all the subtle jokes, I think I pick up on most of them. Sorry I don't have time to email for long this week it is zone p-day. I did buy a suit finally got it at a good price, a member works at the store and that helped. It is a pretty nice suit and should last long enough for at least the rest of my mission. The suit itself cost about $300 alone but I got it for $200 and a free shirt and a tie so I was happy. My companion got the same deal.
[FYI: the exchange rate is about $1 NZD =.69 USD so the suit was about $140 USD]
This week was pretty good. We had some good stuff happen. We had another lesson with Malia and taught her the Plan of Salvation lesson. She still talked about it filling in all the gaps just like when we taught about the restoration. She is scheduled to be baptized on the 28th but she hasn't really been able to get her answer on the Book of Mormon so we will probably be pushing her back to next month. We are going to make sure she is ready. The unfortunate part is that June 1st is transfers and I am not expecting to be here for another one but I am hoping I stay, I think my luck is running out. I will pray for luck ;)
We had another miracle. We were scheduled to teach the first after baptism discussion on the restoration and Alyshia asked if she could bring a friend. Her friends name is Alana. The restoration was perfect. Alana had been prepared. She told us her week had just fallen apart and if the lesson had come at any other time she wouldn't have accepted or been receptive to any of it. It was a hard lesson. Polygamy was brought up by one of the members like right at the beginning so we had to work over that. Alyshia and her friend Aiden rebuked us for not coming to the conformation, we went off on Macca's vs. In-n-out. It was a little bit of work but it in the end the spirit was the guide and Alana accepted the invitation to be baptized - it was awesome. She told us she didn't need to pray about the Book of Mormon because it already felt so good every time she thought about it. She will be set for next month again after transfers but that is okay. I am just hoping I get to continue working with these investigators. It was a great week.
