July 25,2011

On July 24 Sunday we had 2 Baptisms!!! The other elders in the district also had some baptisms so 6 people were baptized and the service was awesome! The work is going good, now we have to start pretty much all over and find new people and invite them to come unto Christ.

The BBQ (braai) went well, that is good. Thats kool, the tradition is still alive for the 24th parade. :)
Things here are pretty nice, not too cold. Well for me anyway, everyone else here is cold. Today its been raining all day and we were supposed to go to the beach, but i don't think its gonna happen.
Bombing in Norway, eish. We never hear Norway in the news.
The apartment, is ok. I cleaned it very nicely today. The kitchen is very small, thats really the only bad thing. We live in like a back house kinda thingy. The lady in the main house (landlord) is Hindu and she makes very spicy food.
Ya im learning a lot of Zulu, im still teaching Zulu people. Im the only white guy so im pretty popular. The people here are starting to know me, like the members and stuff.

Things here are good. I can't complain at all. I am truly being blessed. However Elder Ward a couple missionary in Newcastle one of my old areas he is in the hospital. I don't know what happened, but they say he is gonna have to go to Joburg. As missionaries we are gonna fast for him.
Mission is going great, i truly am learning a lot from everyday experiences.
No problems here in Africa.
Take care.
Much love

Ya we had the confirmation it went well. Also on Sunday we had an interview for Mphilo and he will be getting baptized on the 27th! The work is going well, we need to find some more people to work with and it is coming nicely. Ok one that missionary was dumb, two i haven't even seen a lion yet. I hope to see one, we will just have to see.
Things in Durban are good, me and my comp are learning how to get around better.

I hope things on your side are going well. Im glad that the lil ones are keeping ya'll busy.
Take care. ENJOI!!

Sawubona Fam!!

WE HAD A BAPTISM!!!! Ya!! Yesterday July 10 2011 Bro. Msize Mchunu was baptized by my companion, and man it was AWESOME!!

Alaska? Eish thats pretty sweet. I bet they are having fun there. Its always fun having the lil kids over as well. I bet it reminds you of when you were raising me. :)

So this week was sorta tough, our numbers were not very nice, even though we did get a baptism. My comp is having a hard time, and so he hasn't been really wanting to work. I hope this week though i can help him and we can have a powerful week.
All is going well, i know how to get around Durban a lil better so that is nice.
I hope the family is doing well, i have to run now we have a busy P-day a head of us we have to travel and pick up some stuff.
I love you and miss you all.

Pac 12! Man this is goin to be interesting. I hope they do well.
Cj is now married, eish that is so sweet. Im glad to hear that the wedding went well.
I can't wait to see this lil logan guy and also craigs lil girl.

Nothing exciting really this week. Um we have what we call the Traveling Zone Leaders which is just 2 elders who go around the whole mission and see how all the areas are going. So on Saturday they came with us. And i learned that one of em was my trainer Elder Armstrong, so i was able to see him again. He goes home in 5 weeks. We are going to lose a lot of powerful missionaries, soon.
On Sunday we had a baptismal interview for one of our investigators and he passed and is ready to be baptized next Sunday on the 10th!! I am very excited about that.
My watch battery died, but i think next week i will be able to just get it replaced and it is pretty cheap to so thats pretty sweet.
Thats all that is going on in Durban. The work is going well, im feeling well. I have been blessed that i haven't been through any crazy events or anything weird like that.
I can't believe that im going to turn 1 year on mission this week. Man time flys.
I hope the fam is good. I miss them all so much.
Take care.
I love you.
