Love LOVE this area!

​Good morning!
Katherine is amazing! I love it here! We have been smashing the bikes! We have biked over 200 ks in four days! We had Church in town and then biked to a community over 16ks away to hold church there. 

We got great news we will be getting a car! We are in the second largest area in the world. The only area larger is in our mission the Bush area. We cover almost 1/3 of the Northern Territory! With the car we will be driving out to more communities and holding Church Serves Out bush. 
The Katherine facebook page has some photos of bush church this week. A lot of great things are happening Here! 





He is my friend!( the toilet frog they found in their toilet last week lol) He is called frogger! He love to drink the toilet water! The Branch is great! We will soon be holding three sacrament meetings soon! We are working hard on expanding the branch. We got permission to hold church on a few Community's. So we will be doing that next week after we get a car! It was freezing in darwin!  That was the coldest ive been on my mission!

Easter was great. We had ice cream because thats all we had in the flat. The Spider arent that bad. We sit with them and they crawl everywhere when we are teaching in the community's. 
Love you Heaps!

Good morning!
This week has been a lot of fun! Victor Harbor is absolutely beautiful! It is very green with a lot of trees, The beach is awesome, and there is an island called Granite Island! When Elder Riqisa and I drove up the hill when we were coming down it was breath taking! 
So my new companion is Elder Riqisa from Fiji. He served in Broken Hill before Elder Cultura and we served near each other up in Darwin. We are having a great time! Having fun talking about Broken Hill and Darwin. Its a great 19 degrees here! I love it but Elder Riqisa is freezing. 
We met a few of the Investigators here this week and are excited to work with them. The Branch is awesome! I love serving in branches! Its a lot more fun! I'll take photos today of the area and send them to you next week!

Broken Hill is the Best!!

This week has been a lot of fun biking in the heat and driving down to Mildura again this weekend. 
We have found a few people to teach this last week so we are excited leading into the last week of the transfer! Broken Hill is the best! The members are awesome and the town is very cool to be in. 
We have troubles finding people because if we go where the people are we would have to go to the pubs! That wouldnt go very well! 
On the trip to Mildura we lost my front bike tyre. The vibrations from the road loosened the bolt and it fell off. :) We couldnt find it on the way back to towns so I grabbed a tyre from a old mission bike that Pops had in his back yard! We went to the living desert this last week! Here are some photos!
