Catch up time... I had an amazing last week in Camp Hill. Yes... I finally got transferred. It was sad to say goodbye to those with whom I formed relationships with. But we have the miracle of Facebook for when I get home! Normally transfer calls are on Sunday evenings, but I got a call on Saturday. That's because I got flown up to the beautiful Paradise of Townsville, Northern Queensland! So Monday morning I got dropped off at the airport, which I didn't think I'd go there for another 11 months, and said farewell! It is way hot and way humid here but I am surviving. I companion is Elder Jason C. Williamson from Ripon, California. He is amazing!
We had an an awesome miracle. We were trying to teach a less-active who's name is Elaine. She has been struggling with the death of her mother recently and we haven't been able to see her, but we finally got an appointment. When we taught her, her son Tommy, his girlfriend Carly, and Elaine's younger son Patrick, they all sat in and listened as well. Carly was especially interested and started asking so many questions of the soul. As we connected, the Spirit was manifest and planted a seed deep into all of their hearts. At the end of the lesson, Tommy, Carly, and Patrick committed to be baptized on the 16th of May. It was incredible. We also have 7 others that are/will be put on date in the coming month. The Lord has prepared this area. Elaine and the three kids came to church yesterday and loved it. They all asked so many questions about the sacrament, what the talks were about, and so forth. It is amazing up here!
