weekly letter 28

What gucci yooo.... This week was definitely better than last week. It started off pretty slow but then picked up towards the ending and then yesterday, Sunday was awesome! Not much to report though about things that we do in Queenstown because... We do not do anything here haha prettty much our only plans for Mondays that we ever have is to clean, wash the car, and Email... Then we just kind of sit/play sport... and that is it... Update though! The McDonalds is almost done! We are all pretty excited for that. 
Oh yeeee... Thanks to Edran and dad as well. I am super surprised that the package got here so fast! It only took a little over a month and so that was pretty surprising. One of the Elders that I am with. Elder Richards... His girlfriend sent him a package around 7 and a 1/2 months ago and then she sends him a picture of the package and it took them 7 and a 1/2 months just to send it back to her haha... So yeeee Enkosi Kakulu
So an update on some of the investigators... Jerry (The one white guy in all of Sada) He came to church again today and this time he brought his girlie friend that he has been living with! It was so awesome being able to see them both at church. This is his 3rd Sunday in a row and he agreed to be baptized in the last week of October! We will see how he progresses though because we have not yet taught the Word of Wisdom or the Law of Chastity and so yeee..... will let yall know.
But yesterday... Man church was packed! It was super cool... We had the 5 baptees be confirmed and then we had a ton of less actives attend as well which is awesome... All about them reactivations... We also had one of Presidents Counselors come down to the ward and train them on "Hastening The Work Of Salvation" It was nice because its getting the ward leaders and my companion and I on the same page which will make the work accelerate that much faster! Our ward is not utilizing the tools that we have as much as they should and so this training really helped them and I am excited for same changes to happen in the ward....
So this week I finally got to go on an exchange with my awesome missionary buddy Elder Wall in his area Mlungisi... We have been serving closely together for my whole mission. He even picked me up from the airport with my trainer. He is the super short guy from bountiful haha... And so a bunch of appointments dropped and so we had some extra time... So we were sitting there and we were like okay lets go tract what are we going to be looking for.... First thing that comes to my mind is the color Green.... So we decide that we are going to look for a Potential Priesthood holder wearing a green shirt and that we are going to place a restoration pamphlet for him.... So we start walking and it is pretty funny because im sure it looks pretty strange with these two white guys (In South Africa... if you are not black you are white no matter what race) walking down the street one being super tall and big while the other one is this little 5 foot 4 guy haha... so we are walking and we see a few green shirts but there are just a bunch of kids... Then down the road we see a guy wearing a green shirt... Elder Wall and I are like... YO... Thats our guy and so we start speed walking down to him but he is walking away from us... So we end up losing him... and we are like dang... We lost him... We keep walking and then we see another Guy wearing a green shirt... Again... Ok... THATS our guy hah so we speed walk over to him and we lose that guy... Jokingly with enthusiasm... We say oh... these are angles whom are leading us haha we are just being led to the guy that we are supposed to find... So we are walking and we see this guy in the next street over sitting down in his back yard... We are like hmm... Is that green I see? We agree that this guy is totally him and so we kind of struggle to find how to get to his house through the shack township intermediate leveled maze and so we turn this corner and Elder Wall goes... Yo hes walking out towards us... And so we meet perfectly at the gate of his house and talk to him... Long story short he says to us... "I want that book" We give him the pamphlet and he just gets this big smile on his face. He says "This is exactly what I need and what I have been praying for" 
YOOO So Elder Wall sets an apt with him and yeee... I truly believe that we were led to find him and who knows maybe he had been praying and pleading for Heavenly Father to give him a sign... Angels are constantly preparing the hearts of the children of men (Alma 13: 22-24). We just have to go out and find them and ask the Father to led us to them. 
But hey... Love you all and miss yous like crazy! 
The Church Is True, Jesus Is The Christ
