These past couple of weeks have been great!

These past couple of weeks have been great! We talk to so many people every day. we are street contacting and door knocking for 5 hours a day, almost every day, and it is truly amazing to see the people that the Lord has put in our path to share the gospel with. We recently met this guy while we were street contacting. He told us that he was in a serious car accident and he had a lot of brain damage he had to relearn everything. he had to learn how to walk, talk, write, etc. literally everything but now 8 years later he is almost back to 100% and he told us that he knows that he couldn't have done it without God. and his story is really cool. we are teaching him and he has accepted to be baptized.

This mission is truly amazing. there are so many different cultures here in Adelaide. People from all over the world come here. In our area, we contact people from India and China and they speak very little English but that makes it really fun. They are all very nice people and very accepting to the gospel. The main religion for Indian people here is Hindu and most of the Chinese don’t believe in God. I love teaching them about the restored gospel and about how we have a prophet on the earth today to lead and guide us back to our Heavenly Father if we have faith and follow the commandments.

Yesterday we had zone conference from 9:00 AM to 9:30 PM it was a really long meeting it was really good though. we got trained on how to be better missionaries and how to contact people better. We got fed lunch and dinner so that was good, we also got flu shots. I shared my testimony 3 times throughout the day and I cried every time because the spirit is so strong and I am learning so much and there is no other place that I would rather be than serving the Lord. I am grateful for this gospel in my life and all the joy it brings. With God on my side, I can do anything. I’m thankful for all the support and examples that I have in my life. I know this church is true.

I’m loving my mission and my testimony is growing so much here.
I love you all I hope you all have an amazing week.

Hello Hello!

Hello Hello!

This week has been pretty good. This week I helped 2 people start their cars because they didn't know how to lol. One was an older man with a 1995 jaguar and he just had some electrical problems so i followed some wires and found out they have been unplugged and that there was a fuse blown so I fixed it up and it started right up. The second one was super funny, their battery died and they had no idea how to fix it. This was a young couple and I just told them to get another car and park it on the side of it and use jumper cables, but they didn't know how to so I showed them and I got the car running so it was pretty cool! They both didn’t want us to come back and share our message so it was kind of a let down but I still helped them so it was good! Other than that nothing much happened this week.

I got the package of food thanks! :) We went shopping and I got more food so we are good for a while but you can keep sending little snack stuff. :)

It is hot out here and really humid! It rains a little every day but it gets really hot after and it gets really humid.

We all got shots today after our interviews LOL!

I haven’t cooked much yet. I made hash browns this morning with some potatoes, and I make little random side dishes like nachos and stuff. I’m gonna make crepes tomorrow!! HAHA!

I Love and miss you all!

Love Elder Riding
