Saturday 10th of August 2013 - The Leha Family
After a wonderful 4th transfer with my companion Elder Nyanhamo (from Zimbabwe), we were privileged to witness on the last Saturday of the transfer the baptism of Rebecca Leha by her husband Filimone Leha, a big congratulations to their awesome family and for our fellow Footscray missionaries Elder Lubrido (from Phillipines) and Elder Pipers (from Sunshine Coast) for being there for them every step of the way on their journey towards the waters of baptism, it was so moving to see Filimone's father confer the Aaronic Priesthood upon him before baptizing his wife and then conferring Rebecca with the gift of the Holy Ghost just after, such a spiritually refreshing experience watching miracles performed in other individuals lives right before my eyes, would not give this up for anything! The baptismal service ended well with our bishop, Bishop Steed welcoming the family into the Footscray Ward. It is saddening though to see our fellow brethren Elder Lubrido and Elder Pipers leaving us this transfer, looks like me and Elder Nyanhamo will be soldiering on here in Footscray for another 6 weeks, can't wait to get back to it! I love this work.
