Great week! Learned more ways about the bush. We went out bush on Wednesday. It ended up being just me and Elder Hepworth because 2 of the communities that we go to, all of the people were in town so 2 missionaries stayed here to look after them. We went to the other 2 communities. It is pretty cold out there. The shed we stay in is tinny, it has a bathroom in it, to have a warm shower when we wake up one person has to start a fire under the water heater thing and it heats up the water. i will send a picture of it.
I could try and describe the bush and the people and how we do the work but it is pretty hard sometimes, and you cant quite get the full picture until you experience it.
We drive quite a bit in the utes between the communities. They love the missionaries out there. The communities are pretty small only like maybe 200 people or less. The main focus is building priesthood leaders because we pretty much run the show for church and stuff, but there are a couple of good men out there that help a lot with the church, soon we will be able to make the switch to them running the programs. We do a lot of activities and movie nights and family home evenings. We collect a lot of fire wood for them so they can keep warm. I love it out there.
Love you all heaps. Keep smiling :)
Love Elder Hyde
