We have a couple of recent converts that are super strong and their testimonies have given me strength!! Elder Wilhelmsen is from Layton, Utah! He is great, and we teach very well together, he's a great missionary!!
This past week we had a Christmas braai ( BBQ ) at Brother Saul's house... he is a super rich business man with nine kids and his wife is not a member but he has a really strong spirit and loves the gospel! He is the teacher of the gospel principles class in the ward and had a braai at his house!! It was great! He also has a pool in his back yard and all the kids came and swam! Everyone had a great time!!
It is the holiday season!! oh how I miss the snow!! It's gonna be weird to have Christmas here in Africa... its getting super hot!.. like cook an egg outside HOT!! haha, but it is definitely a cool expierience at the same time as well!
It's super nice to be back in Cape Town!! The city life!! haha, but I did enjoy the simplicity of the Eastern Cape ( which is all where all the rural places are ) they were so content with what they had, and to hear of the good news of the gospel just made their joy leak out of their ears! I love the people of Illinge and will continue to love the people of Fish Hoek as much as I can!!
My goal in this area is to "kill them with kindness", then they will have no choice but to accept the gospel!! ;) hehehe
My companion and I just got our hair cuts today by some Muslims!! It is sweet!! Probably one of the best hair cuts I have gotten here!
This week we had many lessons on temples and me and my companion saw the temples in this new temple book that we've been given and we have been bearing testimony about the temple. Now that it's Christmas time I'm missing the temple and esp. the temple lights!! Oh how I miss the temple!! Please everyone, take full advantage of the temple, and the temple blessings that attending the temple can bring!
I am grateful for all your love and support for me! I cant wait to get the package! Thank you so much everyone for contributing to it! It's gonna be great!
Love you all! Have a great week!! I ALWAYS keep you all in my prayers!
