Trolley Accident (be sure to read the Aussie Term of the Week)

Hey Family,
You said last week that the weather can't decide if it wants to be hot or cold. I know how you feel now. Last week I said it got cold, this week it was as hot as ever. Now it is raining again so it is getting cold again. The only thing is I have been waiting for the cold and you are waiting for the warm probably.
We witnessed one of the funniest things this week. We saw a shopping trolley accident. I wont be able to describe it to make it sound as funny as it was but here goes... we have this one investigator that everytime we see her driving her car and we are on the bikes we make sure we get out of the way because she is just learning how to drive. So she was one trolley driver that was involved. I guess she is learning how to drive a trolley also. The other crash victim was a lady that just woke up. It was a head on crash. I think this lady fell asleep at the wheel because after it happened she was rubbing her eyes bloodshot eyes and saying, "I just woke up."  Ha. Everyone in the shop started laughing. It was hilarious. Anyway that was the entertainment of the week.
Our bikes get a lot of use and there is not a bike shop up here so we try to take the best care of them that we can. But the tread on Elder T's tyre was getting pretty low. The tube started to show through the tyre, we realized that was bad but we were in the furthest camp away from town. We were riding and all of the sudden {= poof =} his tyre blew. We walked the rest of the way home. Good times.
Our investigator that is looking forward to being baptized has now come to church enough and has shown her desire to be baptized that we might have a baptism this weekend. I say might because I have learned that nothing is for sure in missionary work especially in Tennant Creek and especially with the aboriginals. We have the faith that it will happen though. We are looking forward to it. It is also the last week before transfers so we are banking on it even more.
Well, Love yas.
Love Elder Hyde
