This Weeks Baptism...

Hello family

This week has been pretty fun and i have enjoyed it a lot!!  First things first we confirmed the women that we baptized last week and it was awesome she enjoys the church and she will turn out to be a strong member in the long run for sure!!  Second is the Fact that we baptized another this week and it was pretty cool as well the pics are uploading from it!!  The man that we baptized is 77 years old I am pretty sure and he Loves the church and its teachings!!  He got up to bare his testimony shortly after he was baptized and it was cool because he said that he hasn’t been able to get a job for 5 years now and that when he made the decision to join the church that he was offered a job and is doing well now!!  Which is awesome!!  He is funny doesn’t understand much English but knows that this is the Church of Jesus Christ for sure!!  

My companion is doing really well and is enjoying!!  he is a funny person he drives me crazy sometimes but all around funny!!  If you can remember what me and Nathan were like before i came here it is basically the same so patience is coming but an all-around nice kid and very humble!!!  I don’t mean the fighting part either just the annoying bit hahaha!!  He is not like others though i think he grew up not in town he doesn’t know how to use a phone real well and has no clue about computers so he is very interesting to watch hahaha!!  We have two baptisms coming up this week again two 20 year old boys who are ready for the baptism which is awesome i am excited for it to come!!  

The transfers did come but there were not that many changes i am still the DL and i am still Training elder Maele in the same area so it is good!!  I am sure the next transfer will get me though because there are some more people who will be getting ready to go home!!  It is kind of sad to see some friends go though and it is sad that we won’t meet again for a while!!  The ones from the states will be easier than the ones here in Africa!!  I am going to try and keep in contact with all of them but it is harder than i thought to do so, so we will see how it goes in future!!  

Easter Sunday is almost here and it will be a good weekend i am ready for it!!  I hope that you all will be able to enjoy it and have fun doing all the traditional stuff with everyone!!  hahaha this time next year i will be there to celebrate it with you all which will be great!!  I am enjoying the work and i am enjoying being here the time is flying and I am starting to see that I do not have that much time left so it is pretty crazy!!  I hope everyone has a good week and a great Monday Love you all!!
