AHHH! so much as happened! so im in australia..... what?! its so beautiful! i love it! and also its like 18 degrees Celsius, whatever that is... but it feels super nice! not too hot not too cold! but lets see... so mtc was so fun!! and i miss my district so much! but im so happy to be in the field! so the day we got our visas was like the best day ever! our other companion sister grawrock didn't get her visa so she got her temporary reassignment to washington so we were wondering where our reassignment was because we thought for sure we were going state side so we went to the travel office and asked them and they said that we had got our visas!!!! me and sister kunz we freaking out!!! we couldn't believe it! but that feels like ages ago... so then the day came that we were leaving and we said goodbye to our district which was so sad! elder faamuli was bawling! it was so sad! but i was just too excited so i didn't cry :) but then we got on the plane and flew to LA but on the plane, me and sister kunz go to sit down and we realize someone was sitting in between us so we walk back to our seats and it is this big guy covered in tatoos,, hahahah so we just sit down and he looked super thrilled to be sitting inbetween 2 sister missionaries! hahaha and we tried to talk to him but he totally ignored us.. haha oh well! but we finally got to go on the plane to australia and everyone had australian accents and it was crazy! and everyone was talking about lollies (candy) and calling me mate and talking about the rubbish bin (garbage) and stuff. 

but then after like 15 hours we finally got to australia! and i met my mission president, president henderson and let me tell you.... he is going to be a prophet some day! i love him so much! i cant even describe it, but whenever he talks, it just motivates me to try every single day to be a better person and missionary! im sure all missionaries feel this way about their mission presidents! and also his wife is the sweetest lady ever! i love her so much! and they are literally perfect! seriously... but we got there and they drove us to the mission office and then to the mission home and we had lunch and then our trainers came! and let me tell you.... i have the best trainer ever!! her name is sister mewa and she is crazy. but we have so much fun! but when she came, she had lost her voice so she couldn't really talk.. hahahaha but she is from papa new guinea and she is 23 and she never stops talking! haha and then they told me i would be going to centenary lakes and that i would have to drive because sis mewa cant drive. so that night i drove on the opposite side of the car and the opposite side of the road and it was so scary. but im getting used to it! and its super fun! 

so we went to our flat and got settled in but the next day sister mewa was getting sicker so we had to go to doctors appointments and stay home which was a bummer. we had to do that for 2 days and then finally sister henderson called me and said that she wanted me to go work so she had me go with the sister training leaders and sister mewa went to the mission home for the weekend, which was sad, but i was able to go teach a lot of people and go knocking doors and stuff! it was so fun! i love teaching! and i love the stls! their names are sister bauman and sister yeh, i love sister bauman. we are pretty much the same person and we just laugh all the time! so it was fun to be with them but sunday night we went and picked up sister mewa and now we are back home and its finally p day! after not emailing for like 2 weeks... :) but its seriously so good to hear from you guys! 

but funny story.. so we had mini missionaries come for like a day and there was this 17 year old girl that came and she was... insane. literally me and sister bauman were going to go crazy. hahahahahahaah but there was another mini missionary too so there was 5 of us and we didn't all want to go teaching, so sister Bauman and sister Yeh and the crazy mini missionary went and taught a lesson while me and the other mini missionary knocked doors, so we got around for like 45 minutes and then get back to where they were teaching the lesson and their car was gone. so pretty much they left us stranded. hahahah i was just laughing about it and the mini missionary was like freaking out a little bit so we just stayed and talked to the family they had taught for an hour before they came back... hahahaha so yeah, it was super great! but i love teaching and i love being a missionary and i love australia! even though they don't have american cheese or panda express, but life goes on! :) I LOVE YOU!!!!! AND I MISS YOU! have a good week!
