I hope you all had a great conference weekend and enjoyed the inspired messages!
had planned on going to visit our relief society pres who just had a
baby. In the four months I have been here she has been to church 0
times. When we got there we found out that the elders had planned on
having a FHE with them. So change of plans the 6 missionaries in
Zingwangwa Branch came to the Thembo's home and had a great FHE with
them! One of the daughters is blind so we ended up playing the game
where you have to clap and keep on beat and say your number and then
pass to someone else. Safe to say Sister Rasband was always one of the
first to get out because we Rasbands are not musically talented and
can't keep up with the beat.
had district meeting and planned to have a member fireside this
Saturday. We are asking all members of the branch to bring one friend
and we will just tour the meetinghouse and watch the Restoration. We are
really hoping it will give us some new investigators.
had district service up in Soche. First time going to Soche after being
transferred out of the area and it was so nice. We helped Br Tella make
bricks, the African way. Mixing dirt and water together and putting
into molds and them letting them dry all around his home.
then went home after that cause my comp wasn't feeling well. While she
slept I made chocolate chip cookies. Those cookies have never tasted
sooo good. They reminded me of the first day of school when I would come
home to my mom's cookies. Also chocolate chips are very expensive. 1/2
cup for 2 dollars. But.. worth it.
My companion then needed a
blessing so the zone leaders and district leader came over to give her a
blessing. After the blessing we told the elders they could take one
cookie. They are about to leave when we See Elder Muthoka walking
conspicuously away eating one cookie and another 3 in his hand. haha I
am going to miss Elder Muthoka so much when he goes home! Which is very
still wasn't feeling well and so at 10:30 at night the Zone leaders had
to take us to the hospital and we were there until 1 am. She is feeling
better now. We don't really know what is wrong but no it is not malaria
Friday and Saturday:
Went to the area
and worked hard! Had some great lessons and some great new
investigators. We have been teaching the Banda family and they are super
sweet! They understand very well the restoration and they say it feels
right. But they didn't come to church because a friend from Mozambique
Had a baptism for 4
people from the Elders who took our area. 2 that were getting baptized
were our past investigators, Beverly and Sister Nthenda (Br. Nthenda
wife who use to be a Muslim). It was super exciting to see them get
baptized! Anyways that all that is happening in Zingwangwa! Mission is going fast and I am continuing to love what I am doing!
