On a brighter side, I'm in a car here. Most areas have a car, and we have the best flat in the mission apparently? It's really nice and plenty of room.. We have a dishwasher and all.. it's because Senior Sisters use to live in the flat, so it's way nice!
There is a booklet for Trainers now called 'The First 12 Weeks', so we're just going by that. It's challenging but I know that the Lord has put me here for a reason. He knows best, so it's all good. I'm excited..
We then went through the area book and looked over dropped and past investigators and pulled out a bunch that didn't make sense why they were dropped. So we established a list of people to go see and visit. We are also encouraged to do an hour of 'fresh finding' each day which is tracting or talking to people on the street..

A cool experience happend yesterday. We were just driving back from a lesson and we drove past this young lady running her dog. The Spirit told me I had to speak to her. But I ignored it for a few hundred metres and then told my companion to turn around. He thought I was crazy. I was just being myself and spoke to this lady and told her I felt impressed to turn around and talk to her. I turns out she dosen't believe in God at all, but she was really open to the idea and she told me if something was to come up in her life, she would definitely be open to the idea! loving it!! So we arranged an appointment and are seeing her in a few hours, even though its P-day.. I'm excited!!
There was probably about 70 at church? And church was great! haha they chucked me in the deep end and made me the last speaker with the Stake Presidency there as well.. haha, I was to talk on 'the life of Christ'. I think it went really well though, lots of people said they liked it.
I did have to pay for a bike, but the way they do it, you just pay $75 and every flat has a bike and the bikes stay in the area..
I've had a really great week this week, highs and lows.. but I know every experience is making me a better missionary.. The Assistants are coming down for trade offs this Friday so I'm excited!! I'm excited to see what we can do here with Ballarat!
