Enjoying the Mission in Malawi...

Hello Family,
So this week has been pretty awesome and it has gone pretty well and things!!!  We are doing pretty well here and me and the comp are enjoying for sure!!!  This area is pretty awesome and the people here are even better!!!  We should have an investigator ready for baptism here in a couple of weeks so it will be pretty awesome to see that come through!!!  We have others that we are teaching but they must not think we are serious yet but we will keep trying to do these things!!!  The branch is pretty good and doing well still growing and the branch president is still really new so it is pretty interesting to see what he is going to do next!!!!  He turns to us missionaries first to know how to do ordinances and blessings and ordinations because he is not sure how to do them quite yet!!!  So we do it a lot and yes I have given many blessing and many confirmations and many ordinations and so on!!!  In fact I am not surprised there is not a week that goes by where we don’t give one of those things!!!  So it happens quite often!!  Although since we live so far away from other missionaries we have a lot of time to study the scriptures and gain more things from them so it is nice but it does get boring out there sometimes!! 
Mom great song lyrics for some reason they sound familiar we have a lot of gospel music in the flatte and It may have been on one of the songs that we have!!!  Anyway Out where we live there are a lot of dirt roads and things there and the dirt is bad!!!  It gets all over the clothes and it is hard to get out for sure but we are managing!  The branch is pretty far from where we stay this is the first time that I have had to pay transport on a Sunday to get to church and appointments!!!  So it is pretty interesting!  Anyway things are still going good here and mission is still going good here and I am enjoying!!!  We got to play soccer again last week and it was way fun!!!  I was able to score about 9 goals this time and it was pretty awesome!!!  I am hoping that we will again be able to play again this coming week!!  It will be loads of fun!!!
It sounds like things are pretty busy there at home for sure with all the activities that have been going on!!!  The soccer games sound awesome and all the other things as well!!  I am sorry that you all are suffering from the heat but I would love to bring you here and see the kind of heat that is here!!!!  I would probably have to start digging graves and things here for some of you!!!  Haha I am ready for some cold weather though and unfortunately it will not happen here so I will have to be patient!!!!  But all things will come together eventually!!!  I hope all of you will have a good week and that Things will be going good for sure!!!!  Happy Anniversary to Grandma and Grandpa Welling hope they have a wonderful day!!!!  Also Happy Birthday dad this week  hope it is a good one 44 haha man you’re getting to grandpa stage hahaha don’t worry I’ll get there too eventually haha Love you all

Elder Welling
