Kia Ora, It's good to hear that things are settling down there. Things are kind of settling down here as well. Most people are back from their holidays and we can start teaching them again. We have so many good investigators that are ready to be baptized. We had a baptism this last weekend and are looking to have at least 3 to 4 more this month. The work is so good here. We had the meanest Sunday yesterday because first our church started at 9 as well and then we were able to see quite a few of our investigators at church. It was also a really spiritual Sunday. We've been teaching a 16 year old girl named C who came to church for the first time yesterday and loved it. Before that she was struggling with getting an answer to know that the Book of Mormon is true but then during our Gospel Principles class she got her answer. It was a really good lesson on faith. The baptism on Friday was also really good. It was a bit last minute even though we were planning for it for ages. The night before we went to teach her (T) and she had decided that she didn't want Elder Johnson there at all. Being in the Parking lot was even pushing it. But he sussed that our with her and so she was good for him to come but then her fellowship was also telling her to push it to the next week. It was so frustrating because she didn't know what to do and was about to postpone it but we called our Bishop to talk to her fellowship. They must have had a good talk because soon after we got a call from her fellowship to go ahead with the baptism and that she wanted Elder Johnson to do the baptism. It was the weirdest thing ever. She went from hating him to wanting to baptize her. We also went to this nice as beach last P-day and then a couple days after we received a new rule that we can't go to the beach at all. That was pretty gutting to hear. We're running out of things to do on P-days now. We have transfers coming up this week on Thursday but we don't know who's going yet. That means that neither of us are training. I don't think either of us will go but you never know these days. We also heard a rumor that the mission could be splitting soon. It's not official yet so could be exciting but also sad at the same time. It would be weird not being in the same mission as your past companions. Oh yeah, on New Years we had a massive feed at a members house in the other ward. There were a few companionships there and it was mean. It was a massive hangi. That's where they cook their meat in the ground. There was pork, chicken, smoked fish. It was delicious. That's all I can remember from this week. Hope you all have a great week. Love you heaps, Elder Lee
