It's been a great week! It has also been a very tiring one. On Thursday I went on trade-off with an Elder from Scotland, Elder Palmer. He was Elder Motuliki's trainer! Then on Saturday I was on trade-off with Elder Garcia. They were both great learning experiences. Today in church we had one of our investigators, Terry, attend for the first time. Then we watched the First Presidency's Christmas Devotional and had a linger-longer.

Christmas has been great so far! On the 22nd the Mandla's took us to the Australia Zoo up on the Sunshine Coast. Then on the 23rd we had our Christmas themed zone conference with the whole mission. It was a very spiritual experience. Today we spent Christmas Eve with the Mandla's. They got us presents to! Paul and Alana are so loving and caring. They definitely helped remove any feelings of homesickness out of my heart and have filled me with the spirit of Christ.
