Joy In Penrith

Dear family and friends,
This week we helped a member move into our ward, and her name was Joy. What a great name, just hearing it will brighten up anyone's day! Plus she was just about the greatest kindest lady I've ever met. Aside from my mother of course!
Work out here in Penrith has been fantastic, we had a really cool miracle this week. There was a referral from some other missionaries that we had to go contact on a Friday night. We took one of our members and we were going in only knowing the man;s name, and that he belongs to the Orthodox faith. Lo and behold, it wasn't just him, but it was him and his wife, both were super keen. They said they aren't really ready to convert to anything, but they would love to have all the missionary lessons! It was super good, plus they gave us Krispy Kreme donuts. So that was good too.
We have transfers coming up this week, and it's looking like anything could happen. Considering we only had a couple missionaries change in the zone last transfer, it'll probably be a pretty big one for Penrith!
We've had someone at church each week this month, whether it was a less-active or investigator and so it's been good to see the ward getting more excited about missionary work! I still think it is incredible to see how much just seeing someone as they could become will help them change and become better than they were before!
Love you all Heaps!
