This past week I got to see my companion from the MTC, Sister Rougeau. It was her birthday on Saturday, and we got to make her a cake and have pizza :) it was so fun, and it was nice to change things up a bit, because we do a lot of the same things every day. Really great things, but still :)
This week also included another milestone in my assimilation to Aussie culture. They have these really delicious biscuits, or cookies, called Tim Tams. Chocolaty goodness, with some kind of wafer thing in the middle. Anyway, when you bite off the corners, you can use it like a straw with your hot chocolate, and it is oh so good. It starts to melt in your hands, but then you eat it really fast.
One of my favourite things is being outside in the rain, as long as its not too cold. When we were out on our bikes, it started to rain :D Apparently, not everyone likes it as much as I do, and all of a sudden there were no people to talk to.
When I have a few moments of free time, (about 10 minutes a day) I've been reading Jesus the Christ. It is an amazing book that really gives in depth description, analysis, and glory to everything Jesus did. The chapter I read this week was about the parables Jesus gave. Matt 13:31-32 describes the kingdom of heaven like a mustard seed. The book gives background info on this, how the mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds you can find, but it grows into such a big plant in comparison. The gospel of Jesus Christ had such a small, humble beginning, but everyone will be able to know about it, and know Jesus Christ as our Saviour. He has done so much for me, and I am so grateful to volunteer this time of my life to His work.
