Still Doing Well...

Hello Family,

Lots of questions to answer so I will start with those!!  So yes Mwambu has come back into the Zone and yes he did like Malawi he enjoyed it a lot so it was fun being able to talk with him and have that time it was a short time but good enough I got to see him before he goes home!!  There is a Zone conference coming this Saturday so it should be good and I am excited because I am hoping it will spring my energy back into motion and it will be good!!!  The New Mexico guy, he was teasing, but it was still pretty funny when he was acting serious about it!!!  haha I was laughing pretty hard when it happened!!!  Yes Sister Erickson does visit us every so often to makes sure and it is good that way we get to see her and president!!  Now that Zambia has a stake he will be in the Copperbelt a lot more often so it should be good!!  

Yes it is still hot here for sure and the sad thing is I dont think it will ever change so I will have to endure for a while longer although the nights are cool so that is good for sure!!  Anyway this week is going pretty good but has been pretty long!!  We are still teaching some people and a few of them are progressing and doing well we are hoping they will make it to the baptism dates that we have set with them!!!  It would be nice!!!  Today is actually Africa freedom day so it is pretty interesting that Memorial Day is on this day as well haha!!!  Anyway the email shops close early so I am glad that we got here early this time!!!  

So in this week church session there was some pretty funny things that happened I tried not to laugh but it was pretty bad!!!  The first thing that happened was an old guy who was supposed to give a talk and I can’t remember the exact topic but he can’t speak English very well and during the talk he had used the B word a few times and the funny thing he was dead serious when he used them so that was the first thing and the second one this women was giving a talk at a baptism for the other elders and she went to go quote a scripture in D&C and she said if we turn to Section 333 and I looked up and thought for a second wow I must have been gone  long time for the first presidency to have added all those other sections!!!  hahaha it was funny!!

Anyway I am hoping that all things will be well that side and that everyone will enjoy graduations things and the ending of school!!  Other than all this there is not much going on this side we are waiting for transfers in 4 weeks so it will be really interesting!!  We will also see what will be happening they are thinking on building a stake center for the Copperbelt here for all the future wards to meet in so that is pretty awesome!!!  Anyway enjoy the week and the activities love you all!!

Elder Welling
