What's great is Elder Gualco and I both totally have OCD, so in typical fashion, we put together a list of all the Branch members, where they live and what we know about them all. Yesterday, we had 34 in Sacrament Meeting. My goal is for the Branch to hit 50 members. Maybe one day, it'll become a Ward. Anything is possible with the Lord!
This week, our Branch Mission Leader/Branch Presidency member drove us down to Forster to meet with our investigator, Doug. Doug is an Aussie man who's been taught pretty much everything. We got to read 2 Nephi 31 with him and when Elder Gualco drew a diagram of the gate and the straight and narrow path, you could see Doug's mind working as he starting to understand the true importance of baptism. It was such an awesome experience.
Great things are in store for us out here in the so called bush!
Love you's heaps,
- D&C 20:71"No one can be received into the church of Christ unless he has arrived unto the years of accountability before God,and is capable of repentance."
In worldly terms, the Lord has all his bases covered. Thanks to modern revelation and Moroni 8, we know that children don't need to be baptized until the age of 8. If children pass on before that age, they will automatically receive Celestial glory. And if they pass on after the age of 8, they can have their work done for them in the temple. It all makes sense!

Elder Gualco servied two transfers in Long Beach. CA mission where there was an L & L's. He loves spam musubi so we made some this week. One of our members, Fred, really liked it too.
