The work is moving along!

Hello everyone how is it going,

So this week has been full of great times and challenging times as well. So this sunday was the only day that wasnt like the rest. So the three people that were baptised last week were confirmed this week. Then we also had three more baptised this week as well. So this has been so great because we have had lots of people talk to us saying they wanted the missionaries to come talk with them and then we also built up our teaching pool alot. We had 22 investigators at sacrament meeting and we have 25 on date. There is over 13 for march and there could be some more possibilities. March and April are looking like they are going to be very big weeks. Then just this morning me and my companion didnt go to soccer but we were waiting for the other two to return to our flat when another missionary came and told us that one of them broke there shoulder. We went and visited him in the hospital and he is going to need surgery today and wont get back until tomorrow because he landed on his shoulder so hard. Its crazy so right now our minds are in multiple places at once but all is going well except for him. And its his first week in the area so its a welcome to the area present I guess. Well my time is up and I will write more next week I promise Im just short on time for now. I love all of you and thank you for your support. I got a letter from Linda this week and I thank her so much. I hight appreciate your time and I love you so much. I love all of you and hope all is well. Keep in touch.

Lovin' the great land of Africa

Hello everyone from the great land of Africa,

So it sounds like alot has been going on at home lately and Im missing out on a bunch of great and exciting things. But that is ok I have got some fun things here on my own side. But first I would like to thank Mona and Laurel because I got letters from both of them this week. and I also replied so they better be watching for them haha. Thank you everyone for your love and support you are giving me. Trust me it helps alot. So If I havent got your letter yet dont panic because sometimes mail is slow around here haha.

Alright lets start with my week. So to start out I found out this past week sister Nkambisa (a member in Khutsong my first area) Had her baby! I was so excited to hear that and so me and Elder rand called her to tell her congratulations. So its a boy. and they said (I dont know if its true or just playing with me) that they gave him Aaron as a middle name to name him after me. IM STAYING IN AFRICA haha. Just kind of cool to think that I might have had that big of an impact on that family's life.

Then this week we also did some exchanges for baptism interviews. All went well. We had 3 more people baptised this week. We had Brother Diseko who his kids are members and the missionaries have been working with him almost a year, then we had Agnes a grandmother to another one of our members and then we had Sipho who is a great guy who has a little daughter. So it was a good turn out for the baptisms this week.

Also transfers end tomorrow. We got the news and I am staying in my area with my companion for another transfer. But the thing is it just seems like this transfer just started its crazy. But that is ok. Its kind of sad though how fast my mission is going. It needs to slow down some. So Elder Ssempala (another missionary who stays in the same flat) is leaving tomorrow. Im going to miss him so much.He has helped me through so many of the hard times and would be a friend to me when it seemed like no one else was there. We will keep in touch though for sure.

So other than these things the week has been a pretty normal week. Yesterday at testimony meeting (for the missionaries in the area) the spirit was so strong. It reminded me of the times when I would go to camp with the others in my ward and we would do stick on the fire. I loved that feeling and it was great to feel it again. I know that I am doing what I am suppose to. There are definately some ways that I can improve the work that I am doing but I am willing to adapt. So all is well this week. There isnt much to say but there are some cool experiences. I love my mission Im glad I came.

I love all of you and hope all is well keep in touch.

Same old, same old.

Hello everyone,

So how is everyone doing today or this week or whatever you want to call it?, So I know I have been promising for the longest time to write a longer letter to be on my blog but honestly lately everything is in the same routine and same old same old that Im sure everyone gets tired of reading the same thing over and over. And plus this week has not been very eventful. We have had a very slow week with not much going on. We would go to a few appointments and then we would try and go see the people who cancelled. The work has been lower than usual this week but hopefully this next week things are going to pick up.

So yeah everything is pretty much the same Im sorry not much fun reading today I know Im getting dull Im sorry. I PROMSE FOR SURE IT WILL BE BETTER NEXT WEEK! If not everyone will just have to fly to africa to hit me (haha dont I wish).
Well I love everyone and you are all in my prayers I hope everything is going fine for you.

Letters on their way

Hello Everyone,

So this time it is another month that has passed. So this week I have to be very short and brief because I dont have much time. But all of you will be glad to hear I have started sending out letters so keep an eye out for the responses to all the letters you have written to me. So this week has been a good week and its been challenging as well. But the thing is things are starting to get very better. Me and my companion are talking more. Not so much about the area right now but hey we are getting some where. Then we also had zone confrence on tuesday adn so that was very insightful and it taught us lots of new things. So other than that the week has been pretty much normal. Im sorry this is such a short letter but I have to get going. I love you all and hope all is well with you.
