5/31/10 LETTER

Hi All,

One of the best things about the Helensvale ward is that it's a ward of converts. Most of the individuals and families are converts---some joined when they were 14 years old, like I did, and others a lot later in life, even at age 59. Some by themselves, and others with their entire families. That's one of the most rewarding parts of having dinner every night with members, apart from the dinner part---hearing their conversion stories, which are all different. Some joined because of missionaries at the door, some because of distant and close family members, and others even from watching our ad on television, like our aboriginal family in the ward. They've joined in New Zealand, in Australia, England, and all different parts of the world. The Holy Ghost is the same everywhere in the world.

In other news, I got violently ill last week. Haha. Fun. And we went to see a colony of bats living in the neighborhood. And tracted into a man with a pet goose. Met the goose. Learned how to sing "Love at Home" in Samoan. Yes!
