Welcome to August

Hello everyone again!!
Life is going great down here in Aotearoa! I'm having so much fun and getting into the work!! My comp and I are getting along really well and we are having lots of fun.Our zone and district are both really united and the ward is awesome. And it's cool cause heaps of people here know people from my first area. Some are even related! But the ward is great and we are doing all good :)
On Tuesday we had the great chance to get a training from President Haleck. Q of the 70 and new Pacific Area President. We spent most of the day with him and had some really good insights. After the training one of the AP's came up to me and said President Haleck wants to meet with me. Of course my heart dropped. So I waited around till he had me in. He just said he always picks a few random missionaries to talk to and get to know haha. So it was a really good interview. Just gave me some personal counsel and encouragement and then he gave me a blessing!!:) It was a very cool experience to get a blessing from a General Authority :)
The rest of the week just kept moving forward. We were able to teach a few people. Slowing picking that up. Our Ward Mission Leader got back from his trip so we got to meet him and now we are gonna get going like crazy!
On Saturday I had the great oppurtunity to baptize a child for a less active family :) It was a little rough tho haha. He didn't want to get in the water. Then he kicked his foot up so we had to do it again and he was very against that haha. But we calmed him down and he came back in and he yelled "YAAAY I DID IT!!!" So it was a true blessing to be a part of that :)
The Blessing in the Lincoln Ward keep flowing and it's a great place to be :) My comp and I are very excited to be here and to be working hard!!
Hope you all are staying cool over there!! Love and miss you all!!
