Yebo Fam!

Happy Birthday MOM!!!! I hope it was a good birthday. So mom is now 42 right? (mom is always 42) :)
Wow dad ran the 5k, eish. That is so sweet. When i come home we will have to do a 10k together! Free at RMR, that sounds like a pretty good deal.
So we are going to try another Turkey center, um we will see how this one does i guess.
What movie did you see? I saw an advert for transformers 3 eish that seems crazy kool haha. I hope you all are writing down movies i need to watch when i get home. I have dave and cody writing down new music stuff for me.
Sorry to hear about the van again, eish that thing is sure a tough trooper.
I got the package, man i was so excited i wanted to eat everything that same night. My comp has never hear about pop tarts so i let him have some and he loved it. South Africa needs pop tarts haha. Thank you so much for the package.
So on the contacts, im ok right now, so just send them the next time you want to send a package.
It sounds like the mndeni (family) is doing fine.

On my side, we had a good week. We had a wonderful sacrament meeting. We have a brother who is going on mission this Thursday to Kenya. His name is Siya Mkhungo, so his whole family came to his farewell and the chapel was packed full.
We have some baptisms coming in July so im pretty excited. I can't believe im turning 1 year on mission soon, eish time is flying by crazy fast.
We got transfer news last night, no changes in our District except for one elder and also we got a new District leader and also a greeny will be coming to out District.
All is going well her in Durban. I miss you all so much.
I hope everyone is enjoying life. Take care. Remember you have more then most of these people dream of.
much love

Ok kool i look forward to the package, thanks for including the
contacts, i think i have 2 boxes right now so they will defiantly be
needed probably.
The NBA draft, sweet, you will have to give me the details. Especially
where jimmer freidet that one fella from BYU.
No health issues, just that i have been eating a lot haha. Im not fat
though so don't worry.
How bad was the accident? Im glad no one was hurt or anything bad happened.
Ya it is winter time here, its not really a big difference then summer
haha. It does get a little bit colder, mainly in the evening. Its nice
living on the coast. I do miss the sweet mountains of Utah though and
snow. But i love the coast.
The work has been going great. The only problem is our trunk on the
car is broke it won't open, but that's it.
All is going well, I don't have anything of excitment.
I hope you all are ok. I hope everyone starts to feel better and stop
being sick.
I love you.

HEY fam!!

Thats sweet the kids came up. NO Dallas! Eish man thats lame. Oh well.
It seems like your week was pretty crazy. Im sorry to hear about the van i hope you can get it runnin and it won't be a big deal.
Addie went to the hospital, eish. I hope she starts to recover.
Alright, sweet i look forward to the package. :)

The new area is coming along. The people are still zulu people so pretty much the same, the big difference is that the area is so big, which means there are a ton of people. Which is good, we have a lot of work a head of us. So far no problems, im starting to understand how to get to places now and how to get to Durban, im still learning on how to get back home though but its goin good.
Next month we gonna have some baptisms! Man im excited, also we are working on finding a lot of new people, and hopefuly we can meet a powerful family ready for the gospel.
Last week we had a zone conference, so i was able to see my good friends who are serving in Richards Bay and the conference was very nice. We watched some talks and one talk was by Elder Jeffery R. Holland and it was powerful.
Things over here in Africa are going very nicley. I hope it continues.
I miss you all so much. Take it easy.

Sawubona Fam!

So now its hot in Utah, i guess that means the rain stopped. :)
Bear Lake, man that sounds sweet, maybe the water will be warmer this time. Wow Justin is doin the army thing. Thats pretty sweet, i hope he enjoys it.
Nope i don't need anything.

Well on my side, we live in a back house thingy. The lady who owns the house is an indian lady who gives us very spicy food on fridays haha. She is pretty nice just very strict. Ya we live in Durban North, so just a few minutes from downtown and that very big world cup stadiam. The ocean is also very close.
Everything has been going good, im just getting use to my new companion. He is a funny guy but ya just need to learn to be patient with him. Its all good though.
I have nothing of excitement to report, everything is pretty chill im just focusing on learning the area and getting to know the people.
My time is short so i hope all is well. I am also working on a package to send to you.
Take care.
