Week 31 - Dad's Birthday

Kia Ora!

It's been a great week. Truly. We went out to the Visitors Centre twice this week with investigators and that was awesome. The spirit is so strong there! We are just super excited for Nikki's baptism this Saturday, so that's pretty much all I can think about at the moment... But HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! Still so young. We've just been super busy, the Uni here started back up today so there have been people all over the place, too many for us to handle honestly. But we found a couple solid new investigators this week and are excited to start teaching them.... We made fajitas for lunch one day this week and they were AMAZING. But joke's on us because the same day for dinner a member made us fajitas. Crazy because no one ever makes us Mexican food. Also, the exercise thing in the morning has been terrible cause we have been so tired. So the truth of the matter is that I am soooo out of shape and the fat life is a reality. So depressing. But as in all things, the Lord will provide a way for us to be fit! One day... Hopefully soon. 
Not much else, Sister Taylor and I are together for a long transfer, she gets 8 more weeks of me! Lucky her... :) Something that has really stood out to me lately is the simple fact that Heavenly Father loves us. There is no denying it as you look around you at the beautiful world, the blessings of great family and friends, and most of all, the opportunity to have a perfect gospel in our lives. It truly is wonderful! May we all be a little more grateful this week.

Love you all HEAPS.
