We Got a Holden Cruze!

It's been a good one.  Transfers were pretty hectic, but we had a nice three hour drive from Gosford coming back to Taree on Tuesday.  My new companion, Elder Kumar, is an Indian from Fiji and he's a pretty funny guy.  He grew up in the country area, so he feels at home here and seems to be liking it.  Not to mention, we got a car (Holden Cruze) again, so things are looking up!  

The first half of the week went well, we got to visit some members and less-actives and get Elder Kumar acclimated to Taree.  We met with Doug, who has been loving the daily scriptures we've been sending him.  It's been a great experience teaching Doug.  You can tell he feels the Spirit and when things start to click and make sense for him, you always see it.  

We also go to visit with Bruce and teach him about the Great Apostasy and how it led to the Restoration.  He was very interested to learn about prophets and how there is a living prophet upon the earth today.  We hope to share President Monson's General Conference talk on choices with him this week.  

So the week was going pretty good when this storm the people have been raving about finally came in.  It basically poured all weekend, so there was absolutely nobody out.  The streets looked like the deserted towns you always see in the movies.  We had 18 people come to Sacrament Meeting yesterday.  Small in numbers, but strong in spirit.  Pretty much everyone got up and bore their testimony, which was pretty sweet.  

Life is good.  Things are going well.  And those the Lord has prepared will be found.  

Love you heaps!
Elder Muh 

-D&C 35:13
"Wherefore, I call upon the weak things of the world, those who are unlearned and despised, to thresh the nations by the power of my Spirit;"
Just as the Apostle Paul states in the New Testament, the Lord doesn't always call the powerful or those who speak the flattering words of the world, he calls the weak to preach His Gospel.  We don't have to be the best speakers or the smartest, nor the most cunning people to teach His children.  And that is what humbles me. 

Elder Kumar and I after church (had to take it inside due to intense rain) 

We helped Sister Vickers get a stove top on Saturday and she was heaps excited to tell us that the kangaroos were out when she left.  We pulled up and they were still out! First time seeing kangaroos in the wild!
