A Week Full of Miracles

             "There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of the world, upon which all blessings are predicated --- And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated" ( Doctrine and Covenants 130: 20-21 ). This week has been great for me and my companion with heaps of miracles that we had seen and it's because of being freely obedient. It really helps me and with my companion to align ourselves with the will of God. Obedience is the first law of heaven and by obeying God's commandments, we show ourselves that we love God and Jesus Christ and we want to serve them. We will be much happier if we obey God because we love Him and we want to obey Him. When we obey Him freely, He will bless us freely.

                                    My core experienced with God this week happen on us last Tuesday as we were working in Doonside area. As usual, we catch the train again with our bikes and when we got to Doonside we then walk towards the shops and there we saw the Relief Society president in our ward. We stop by and talk with her and then she told us something; " Elders! Go on that way and say ' Hi ' to one of the Bishop's daughter with her friend who is not doing good and the Bishop's daughter too is kind of less-active. We went there and says 'hi' to them even though it's kind of awkward for us and with her . We then left them and went to the Telstra telephone stand to get ready with our helmets for biking. We were standing at the telephone stand when we saw this one lady who is trying to call someone and looks like that she needs help with something. 

- this is Elder Tematafaarere from Tahiti and Elder Kaufusi from Tonga.

 - this is Elder Nathan from Perth 
and Elder Kaufusi.

- with Elder Kaufusi again but
sometimes we call him Elder Chips or Elder Dizzy . He's a funny missionary.

- just wanna take a photo at our flat .

 - this is me with Elder Kaufusi
again at the roof.

- this is us with our small and cute ties ..
Elder Kaufusi taught us how to do that ..

- we have nothing to do at the flat so we just keep on taking photos .

 - it's us again with our lava-lava.
It's really nice and comfortable though .

We then approach her and exactly that she needs help from us. We help her calling her auntie to pick her up from the shops and knowing that she's been her in Australia for just one month. She is from Turkey and she also speaks English but not that good that's why she came here in Australia to study language. After helping here, she then asked a question with us of who we are and what we do and she even look our name badges that time. We then introduced ourselves with her by using the how to begin teaching and by getting to know her as well. We then share the message of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and about the Book of Mormon. She told us that she never heard about the Church and then after that she then asked the church's address which is really cool. We then give the address to her and set up an appointment with her again and with her family. We then exchanged our contact details with her and we also give her a pamphlet and a copy of the Book Mormon in English to read. We also told her that we will give her a copy of the Book of Mormon in her language as well so that it would be then easy for her to understand and she then accepted it . It was really a great experienced for me on how the Spirit work on us. 

- at the Blacktown Train Station while waiting for our train to Marayong.

- this is me with my companion 
Elder Tematafaarere from Tahiti.

- Elder Cecilio from Philippines.

- we just meet this guy at the street while 
biking holding his Blue tongue lizard.

The member who told us to say 'Hi' to the Bishop's daughter lead us to this lady whom we meet this week. It was great to know how the Spirit works not only on us as missionaries but also with the member. Serving here in Doonside Ward now for about 10 week is such a great miracle and my companion and I had found more investigators and it's through the help of the members who gave us referrals and their friends who are not members of the Church. Member- missionary work is the best way for us missionaries to find people to teach and help more people to invite them to come unto Christ.
