Dear Mom,
This past week I can hardly remember. It wasn't the best of weeks - we only taught one lesson with all others not home or what not - but we did have zone conference in Canberra which was great. The assistants to the president spoke on listening and asking questions in teaching situations (which are found in Preach my Gospel). It was really good because you need the investigator and less active to talk and you need to really hear what they are saying so that you can come closer to knowing their needs and showing that you care.
For the highlight of the week we met Mitch, who came to stay with Brother Shoobridge's friend, Tom. We were able to see him at the gaming activity that happens at the family history center. Right before he left we visited Tom so we could see Mitch off, and we had the chance to give him a Book of Mormon as a gift, wrote our testimonies in it, talk about the Book of Mormon and the restoration, and he was open and said he'd read them. That was pretty awesome.
We're emailing late because we had to come up to Canberra today because Elder Balenaveikau is being emergency transferred so I'm getting a new companion, Elder Osmani, tomorrow and will drive down to Merimbula either tomorrow or the next day depending on if we do trade-offs.
Well that sums up the week.  
Elder J. Cederlof
