I have so much time to work its crazy!

I am back in the CITY were I started. Same flat and everything. It’s so great to be back and I feel like I was sent home. Saw both John and Thomas already (we baptized them last year) probably 15 people in the city that we used to teach and see.
Yesterday Elder Tolbert (my old comp who is now our ZL with Elder Calahan also and old comp) gave John the Melkezidek priesthood at stake conference. I was voice. It was so great. I can’t believe I am here and am so excited to work here again.
Love Elder Hartley
PS no ZL or DL or training this transfer. I have so much time to work its crazy!

Elder Kelese came in from Mildura, Elder Hartley is here from Darwin and also Elder Glova from Darwin!  Welcome to Adelaide!

Sam is getting baptized on Oct 31

I am getting transfered today and gotta catch a plane in 2.5 hours is a quick one. Looks like everything is going great at home you guys are the best I am so grateful to have you as parents. Please say hello to everyone for me.

Feels pretty weird to be going to Adelaide I am pretty nervous, almost feels like I am going home. President Parker told me when he was up here that I might go back to the city in Adelaide that would be pretty great, we will see what happens.
I will let you all know next week.
love ya....ELder Hartley

The Lord is taking care of all of us

The Lord really showed his hand to us this week. We have had a goal to baptize on Oct 17th or 18th and have been doing all we can to make that happen but just the other day our last hope investigator said he would not make it. We had fasted and prayed over this day a few weeks ago and just Wednesday we all fasted as a zone to make things move forward faster. Sunday came around and we had no one coming to Church but then Sam showed up. He is a former investigator he's 15 and was almost baptized several times before I was here and during the first two transfers that I was here but it was always his parents holding him back. He has moved out and his less active uncle has been coming for a month now and he brought Sam to church yesterday and went straight to Pres Dunn to get baptized! We talked to him and set a date for Oct 17 to give us two weeks to refresh his memory and so he can come to Church two times in a row and then a third when he is confirmed.
 Also the indicators in the whole zone almost doubled this week in every area! I know its all because of the Lord answering the prayers fasting and faith that we have been trying so hard to work on for the last few weeks! It's great to see some success and I feel bad cause I was complaining last Monday but I know there is a plan to over come always and that the Lord is taking care of all of us. Love you all have a great week! Elder Hartley
