Baptisms and More Baptisms...

Hello Family

Things are doing well and I am doing fine!!!  Well this week has not been to exciting or fun but we have done a lot of work this week!!  We had a baptism though this week and it was awesome she will be a strong member of the church she is about 30 years old and has two children she is doing good and the husband has been a member for quite some time!!  It was awesome to see her get baptized and the cool thing is we have another baptism this coming week which should be awesome!!  We also have two more baptisms scheduled for April 5th that should also be pretty awesome!!  The weeks are going by faster which is weird but things are going well!!  We should be getting close to transfers this week which will be interesting to see what happens there are some missionaries that are getting ready to go home so we will see how things turn out!!

The stake that has been created is awesome and I am glad to have been a part of it and it will continue to grow and get better and more will start appearing as well which will be awesome!!  The church here in Ndola is getting better and bigger and the meeting house seems to be getting smaller and smaller!!!  All is good though the District is doing well and things are coming along!!  I am not sure if there are that many new missionaries coming this week but it has been nice with the new ones that we have!!  The companion is doing well and he is learning a lot he is almost to the point where he can teach the whole lesson with what he has which is nice!!!

Other than that not too many things are really going on here!!  We are continuing to teach and to do the work like we are supposed to!!  A lot of my friends have gone home off of mission so it is difficult to see how many I have left and what they are doing!!  I am keeping in contact with many of my friends, Parker and I have not written in a while but I will see how he is doing down there on the cape!!  I have definitely built a tight relationship with the elders that I am staying with they are really awesome and they are also having a lot of fun here as well!!  There is one, he is preparing to go home soon though so it will be sad but interesting to see what happens!!

Mondays are getting kind of interesting now days there is not much to do anymore all we do is email and then go home to study and talk!!  This isn’t a bad thing but it would be nice to relieve some stress with a little soccer once in a while!!  You know something I did find surprising is there is a golf course here in Africa and never in a million years did I ever think that I would see one in Africa but still pretty cool if I am still here for another six weeks I may go see if we can rent some clubs and try it hahaha!!  Anyway I hope that everyone will be having a good week and that things will be going well for all of you Love you!!!
