April 23, 2017

Hey Momma! I kinda ran out of time to email this week because I replied to a bunch of different emails. But I am doing great! We got another companion until the end of the transfer, his name is Elder Solomon. So we are officially a quadpanionship! We asked if we could get an extra car and phone, and the office hooked us up so now we can split off and do double the work! I believe that it is an answer to fasting and prayer! We prayed that we would be able to find more people to teach and the Lord blessed us with a whole extra companionship :) Miracles! I love you so much! have a great week! 

love Elder Wiser

I still have the coin Auntie Karrie gave me

we didn't have dinner on sunday night
So President Vidmar invited us over.
We are the closest missionaries to his flat so we are blessed.

Gooday everyone! this week went by so fast!

So it was Easter this week! I love this time of year! its kind of weird in Australia because its Fall here and its getting pretty cold. So if people did Easter egg hunts they would have to hide the eggs in the dead leaves. But thank goodness its not the weather that makes Easter special. We had many wonderful opportunities to discuss what peoples beliefs are regarding Easter and it led to many great teaching opportunities. It seemed like peoples hearts were a bit more soft! 

Miracle Alert: So we were blessed to find a Golden Investigator. His name is Mo. He has been taught by missionaries a few times before. He was born Muslim but converted to Christianity when he was twelve. He is from Nigeria, and he is just wonderful! He has been studying the Book of Mormon at work. When we asked him what he remembered from the last missionary's, he taught us the restoration in order, and when we invited him to be baptized he said he had been baptized before but he now knows that he needs to have correct Priesthood Authority and used the analogy of Getting pulled over by an Ice cream man instead of a police officer to explain authority! He is so prepared! He will be praying for a date to be baptized and we will follow up with him this week! so blessed.

Happy Easter to everyone! I hope that you had a good weekend. The world is a little more open to learn about Christ! people are prepared all we have to do is open our mouths and share what makes us happy with everyone else!

I love you all. have a great week

love Elder Wiser

this is a sign on the back of a bus
that I feel might be a little overboard.

Easter was great!
We made little easter cups and delivered
them with a message to a bunch of families!

the Prentice family took us to a chocolate factory
for preparation day! it was really good!

this is a very long chocolate bar!

if you notice the sign behind us it says that they
"respect their elders"! that's us

This is the Prentice family! Stephen, in the middle, just got back
from his mission on Wednesday!
This family is great! they help so much in the ward!

April 2, 2017

So this week has been fabulous! I'm so excited to be able to hear General Conference this next week. We watch it the week following because of the time delay! but from what I have heard its the best General conference! 

So I'm still serving in the Doncaster area! its a wonderful place to live! Its half suburbs and half city. We spend most of our time finding people to teach at the box hill center. I sent some photos of it. its usually more packed with people but this photo was late, right before we finished. 

So miracle for the week. Elder Wheeler and I have been praying to find new people to teach so that Elder Watanabe can have a chance to teach investigators! So we set some finding goals and started GQing (general questioning) while I was trying to find people that would receive the message I saw a guy looking rather sad sitting on a bench. His name is Charles. We started talking and he expressed that he was going through some really hard challenges. He was getting divorced from his wife he lost his job and he didn't think he would be able to get permanent residency in Australia. I do not know how to deal with any of those situations. so I just said Charles I have no Idea what to tell you, but I know someone that can answer your question. then him and I talked about prayer and we said a little prayer together! he said that he needed to go but he wanted to learn more! so the next day he came back and we taught him again, then the next day and the next day we taught him twice and at the end he asked the greatest question ever. How can I get cleaned of my sins? and "how can I do that water thing" "you mean baptism?" haha he is so prepared. sadly he lives in Darwin which is 4 hours flight from here and he is just staying for the week but he wants to meet up with the missionaries and start going to church up there! it was such a blessing. the Lord helped Charles to find the path of happiness and he also gave us all the ability to share our testimony! God really does answer prayers! he really does bring Peace. #princeofpeace. I love this Gospel so much

love you all 
love elder wiser! strait from the 801

this is the Esslinger family!
They are amazing, we just finished a message about building a
strong foundation and we used their "kinects"
do you remember those toys kinda like
legos in the green tub that I used to play with.

and Elder Watanabe has been working so hard,
he was a bit tired.

This is the best dish ever, it is crispy pork fried rice
with a taro and coconut shake at china bar!
We eat here weekly! Brother Foster is in the back ground,
he is a ward missionary that helps us so much!

this is where we GQ all of the time!
Elder Wheeler took a picture of me talking to a guy on the bench.
His name is Kevin and he turned out to be an inactive member.
We had a really good chat, I hope it brought him some peace!
