Hello loved ones! How ya going? The pictures from the Halloween party were the best! Soo cute. We are having a Halloween trunk or treat with our branch this friday, im pumped! and then we are going to Yarrabah for Halloween. So this coming week is going to be great! But this past week has been another good one, mainly because President and Sister Henderson came up to Cairns! Best day ever! We got to have a district conference thing with them and also interviews with President. I sure love those two! Also, crazy enough, next week is transfers! we will find out this saturday if we are getting transferred or not and so that means p-day will be on tuesday next week. But im not going anywhere so thats good news! :) I just loove it here in Cairns! Except it is starting to get suuper humid... ha Oh well, its good for me.
So i don't really have a ton to say about last week... but we were working as hard as we could! we saw lots of miracles and were able to even teach 13 lessons in one day! I was so exhausted by the end of the day, but its such a good feeling to just give everything we have and to do the will of the Father. Thats been a question that has been on my mind during and at the end of each day..."have i done the will of the Father today?" Its a great way for us to reflect and to have the spirit tell us what we can work on so that we can live the law of consecration. You will all have to read the talk by Tad R. Callister on being a consecrated missionary... ill find out the title, i can't remember what it is but its so good! I want more than anything to be that type of missionary and person, because in turn we are able to become more like our Savior.
So a miracle for this week: so i think i told yall about how Patty and Thomas came to church last week and his dad who is a pastor in the Torres Strait Islands dropped them off... well the dad came to church alone this week and man, it was awesome! he enjoyed sacrament meeting and then in gospel principles, we were talking about the church of jesus christ in former times, and the lesson was so good and all of the members were testifying and at the end, john said, "i think i just might come join this church when i come back down from TI." it was so cool! ahh man, i love seeing the change of heart and the spirit working as people come to know that the church is true!
Well i love you all!
love, Sister Alldredge
