How Many Dogs Attend Your Church Meetings?

Hello family,
My week has been great. Sorry I didn't email yesterday though. Something was wrong with the internet here in Tennant Creek so nobody had internet.
We got a sweet new aboriginal investigator and she committed to a baptism date, it is very hard to get them to do this and she is reading from the Book of Mormon daily and praying. She is moving along well.
We had a sweet trip up to Elliott this weekend. We just hold church under a tree at a members home so we had a total of 16 people, 10 dogs, 1 sleeping cat, and 1 dead rat with its head off hanging by strands made an appearance for a little bit until someone chucked their thong (flip flop) at the dog who brought it in. So all in all a great success. Ha.  Something great happened as well, we had some aboriginal men with the priesthood help us out with the sacrament. It is usually pretty hard to get participation in those kinds of things but their hearts have been changed and they want to help.
We weren't able to take a shower up there though because where we usually shower they say it is only for staff members now, so I guess we kind of fit in a little more. That's probably bad to say.  It was also way to hot to sleep in the tent so we slept outside with the dingos, mossies (mosquitos), and other ravenous animals. Ha.
Well I love you all and hope you have a great week!
