So this week we had a special stake conference for splitting the stake! We got to drive down to east London for the conference. Yo it was a lot of driving... like 6 there and back just to see be at the conference and they didn’t even have any talks prepared, just testimonies the whole time. President Hamilton was there which was cool, he reminds me of elder Bednar.
Our ward is pretty nice. They have got something going hahah it just takes forever to get things done cause or bishop oh man hahah love that guy (bishop jabanga) but he just carries things way to long than they need to be! Like getting someone confirmed, he just forgets and we have to wait another week but at least it gets done! We have lots of youth!!! I think bishop said we have like 40 potential missionaries but only like 3 are preparing to go and a lot of young woman. Youth are kinda the target or young families cause older people are just lazy. The youth program is pretty good. i don’t think they have mutual cause it to far for them to travel for an activity but they all like each other and it seems like there is no drama in the ward.
I was pretty homesick this week haha thinking about fourth of July and all the fun we had in college, but its not really a hinder.
I have a thought for you guys, maybe you can look it up hahha....sooo if you have moldy bread and you put it in the toaster all the mold gets burnt off right? I'm going to try it. hahaha
Yesterday when we drove down to east London it was the coolest thing ever. Usually you see a herd of kudu and impala but oh man we say sooo much more. We got to see monkeys playing on the side of the road and 3 zebras and a ton of kudu and some springboks and ostriches. Yo it was super cool!!!! I still have yet to seen a lion, elephant, or rhino but i think we will see them tomorrow when we drive again to east London to meet the mission president and his family.
We taught a lot of investigators this week and even had over 30 lessons in all but we had to push back some baptisms for the special conference this past week. We are preparing like 9 investigators for the 23 of July and 30 which I’m really excited about! We had another miracle this week. Another person named ayanda, after he offered a pray he was super excited and said "I JUST FEEL SUPER GOOD AND I AM DEFINITELY COMING TO YOUR CHURCH THIS WEEK, I PROMISE!" Sadly we told him church was in east london and he couldn’t come but we are hoping he is still excited for this next week! Miracles are everywhere when you sacrifice and are obedient!
love you, hopefully my card will come soon!!!!
