Kia Ora!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!! Man I'm missing "basting" the turkey! lol! And I'm missing that apple pie, hmmm... But I did enjoy those pumpkin cookies, they were gone in a couple days lol!

We had a really good experience this week. We were planning on setting the Samoan family, but during the lesson I just couldn't set them. And I had the feeling that we should go back the next day and talk to the mom about baptizing her children. So the next day we go see her. And she pulls up just after we pull in, good timing huh! She starts telling us how happy she is that we come and visit her. And then she starts crying and she tells us that she wants her children to be baptized!!!! How cool is that! So when they get back from Hastings' were going to talk about them getting baptized! Next month we are planning on baptizing five!! It's going to take a lot of work and faith but it can happen!

We talked to someone yesterday and they want us to baptize their son! So that's another good miracle!

We had some rough things happen this week. We found three new investigators that are really keen. And we were planning on setting them, just really good. But this week the moved to the other ward! Man I was pretty upset just because we are having a hard time getting keen investigators, and so when they moved we not only lost some of our baptism propects but we also lost some of our few investigators. But the Lord provided, the next day we found two new investigators.

I love Gisborne. It's got it hard parts, but I learn and grow from them.

The zone is really struggling this month. We've only baptized two this month. And we are projected to get only three. Next month looks really good! We are looking at breaking the Zone Best again! And our goal for the zone is 14!! So we really need your prayers!

LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!
