On the bright side we were able to give some of our investigators baptismal dates!! Zandile and Mila! They are on the date of April 23! And this week we are planning to baptize a girl named Amelia! And we are planning on give a couple of others baptismal dates as well so that should be exciting!
It was funny this week as we were teaching Zandile and Mila, they invited a friend to come, Ivan.. he's a nice guy but I felt something weird with him.. and after our lesson with all three of them we asked him to join us in church.. he then started laughing and then said "sorry guys I'm a pastor of the Zion church".. then I said "Well that doesn't mean you can't come and visit, it would be great to have you.." he looked puzzled for a moment then said "maybe one day" even though it wasn't a big thing to invite him.. I felt the spirit and knew that I had done my part! Even though it wasn't a "YES! I'll come to church!" kind of thing I was still grateful for the opportunity to invite him! In missionary work.. there will always be ups and downs.. but we have to just keep on moving forward! Continuing to do all that we can to help the people we know and love!
I can truly testify that God is waiting for us to do our part so that he can pour blessing upon us unceasingly! So do your part invite those that you know to hear the restored gospel! Just that simple act will bring tremendous fulfillment and peace in your lives!!
The people of Zwide are awesome! Port Elizabeth is just awesome! It's like a good medium from city life and township! The people are humble to hear us but we are still in civilization not like Illinge or places like that.. hahaha, so I'm enjoying it very much! We will see if I'll be enjoying it much longer cause we get transfer news this week!
It's exciting the transfers are getting faster and faster! Man its like I just got here and there is a chance that I'll be leaving its crazy!! But I'm loving it here.. this week will be a little interesting though cause our branch went on there first ever branch temple trip so there is few members here this week..so yeah but I'm very much excited for them and wish I was with them! :)
The weather in P.E is hot and bipolar.. It rains one moment then goes straight to blazing heat, then the wind picks up and could probably blow some cars over sometimes! haha But its great its getting colder which is nice right about this time of year!
I miss Vinni a lot! It sounds like he has grown a lot! I know I that I didn't email him a lot when I was home and he was on missoin.. but if you could please express to him my love and that I would be grateful to hear from him please! I am so glad to hear that he came over to visit you guys! The mission goes by so fast!
I hope you all have a great! I love and appreciate all that you've all done for me!
