Kia Ora Mom and Dad,
So it sounds like Brandon is doing well with missionary work. He will be so prepared for when he goes on his mission. Seriously, going out with the missionaries helped a lot. I think that you teaching the gospel essentials would be great. If you ever need any help just ask the missionaries because they know their stuff, and just be prepared to answer questions because that's all that the gospel essentials teacher here does but then again he is also the ward mission leader. Oh and I haven't gotten the package yet because it takes close to a month for packages to get here. It takes 2 weeks to get to New Zealand and another week to actually get to me. No, I don't wear any hats. They are not allowed but I can wear sunglasses in the car. That's all though. Yes the weather is getting warmer here. I'm almost to the point where I can wear a short sleeve shirt everyday. Our investigators are good. We now have 7 investigators and it is looking like they will all be baptized in November. R and A came to church for the second time yesterday and they seemed to enjoy it and they are still interested in learning more which is great. V and 4 of her 6 children (2 of which are younger than 8) also came to church yesterday and she is totally set to be baptized on the 19th of November. She really wants the blessings of the temple and be able to be sealed to her family for eternity. Her kids are awesome. They are so energetic and really funny, and will most likely be baptized on the same date as their mom. We are also teaching a 17 year old guy who has so many questions. He came to church yesterday as well and he asked so many questions and really liked it. He is going to mutual on Thursday which he will enjoy. Everything is going great here. Love you all.
