Kia Ora, This week has been an excellent week! We had a mean baptism this last week on Friday. It was one of the most spiritual baptisms that I've been to. What was also cool was that when N got up to bear her testimony she had said in it that she couldn't have done it without us and that we were the perfect missionaries for her (She's met with missionaries for a while). We also did got to some waterfalls for P-day last week which was pretty cool. It was really interesting because it was basically in the middle of a neighborhood. Only in New Zealand! We also have 2 people set for the 29th of this month. One of them is a huge miracle! We were at church yesterday just enjoying our Sacrament meeting when our District Leader waved us over to him. We noticed that he was talking with a young couple. We found out that the guy was a member from Auckland and his girlfriend wasn't a member but had received all the lessons in Auckland and had just come up for the holidays and she really wanted to be baptized. We were so excited but of course we had to maintain our composure so we just talked with them a bit and she said she would be here in Whangarei for about a month or so. It was the miracle that we had been praying for. It was awesome because earlier in the week I had said to my companion that we had to save at least 2 more souls this month and we already have one that wants to get baptized. God really does watch over us and knows the thoughts and intents of our hearts. My companion and I have so much fun because we always know what the other is thinking. It's really weird sometimes but it's hilarious.
