We met with joy and went over the baptismal interview questions with her. she doesn't feel quite ready to be baptized so we have pushed her date back to the. kindof sad, but it will be good. She's still awesome. Please keep her in your prayers.
Shirley is also doing good. she wasn't able to come to church or meet with us last week, but she will finish her assignment by tomorrow and then we can meet up with her. haha she refuses to text us in english so we have to spend ages interpreting the texts she sends us, which is a bit difficult when she asks us things like, "have you ever eaten pig cartilage boiled in brown sugar sauce?" haha that was a tough one. but we got it. and she was all the more impressed by our Chinese:)
This week they started doing this thing called VIVID in sydney which is where they have all these light shows and stuff and we were riding the train across the harbour bridge on saturday evening and we got to see it! it was pretty cool. the opera house was all lit up and the lights were flashing different colors and stuff. lots of fun.
Probably the coolest thing was that elder Cook came to our stake conference on sunday! We found out why he is in australia too. he came to give some speeches at unis and also to give tony abbot his family history. but before the meeting we pulled up and were walking in the back door when me and bowcut got caught up in the security and ended up shaking elder cooks hand! hahahaha it was so funny. we were just walking in and then all of a sudden we were pretty much one on one with elder cook. pretty exciting.
and then after stake conference one of the recent converts in the ward brought her friend to church and told us that he's been being taught by the north missionaries, but he wants to come to our branch now so we will be teaching from this point on. haha great stuff. his name is jack.
okay gotta go! love you all! if you have questions then email them to me and i will try to answer them next week! BYE!
