Another week down. Not the best of weeks at the beginning but ended good. my comp has really gotten stubborn but i'm just continuing loving and serving him. This past Saturday we, us missionaries, put on a branch activity. We decided it'll be a movie night and that we'd BBQ for everyone, so once reserving funds from the branch president we went out and bought about 200 pieces of chicken and some other things to make some sides! but the activity turned out to be pretty successful in bringing some less actives, not as many as we hoped but it was still good. we watched the movie "Frozen" and everyone enjoyed and had a good time. I gave a short Spiritual Thought about it and talked about Christ's true love for us and how it can save us from anything. i love disney movies you can always relate a bunch of gospel principles to everyone of their movies. Also Saturday President Zackrison and Sister Z came for interviews so i got a 2nd interview this transfer which was great! President and i are on the same page and we think the same views about this area. it was great seeing them again. They also gave a great fireside Saturday night about member missionary work and the gathering of Israel. Sister Z said something that really stuck to me! she was talking about how the only difference between members and missionaries is missionaries wear a name tag that sets them apart as servants of Jesus Christ, but then she asked " What name tag are you wearing?" and that stuck cause as members we are all recongized as something whether lawyer, doctor, or farmer but how many of us are recongized as good people or servants of Christ? but anyways you all have a week to think about it till i read your comments if there are any. But President just shines with the spirit its crazy but i also loved what he talked about as well and he quoted a scripture Alma 5:33 which reads: Behold, he sendth an invitation unto all men, for the arms of mercy are extended towards them, and he saith: Repent, and i will receive you. but it was a pretty good saturday. Then came sunday we had church and also a baptism of a 14 year old boy named Andile who walks 2 hours to church every sunday, the kid is amazing and super smart. but after the baptism we went to a Less actives named Stembiso and his wife said she wanted to talk to us privately but we told her we would have to another time and i guess Stembiso beat her last night and she ran away with their child sad story but i'll follow up with all that this coming week. But while at Stembiso's President Zackrison called and wanted to come with us to a few lessons. At first i was nervous but it turned out to be amazing he can just go into any home and just get to the point of helping people feel the sport he brings. The strong spirit he carries but those Harvard Grad lawyer skills make him a very powerful teacher. i learned so much from my few short hours with him and i cant explain all the things that were said or done in an email but maybe one day i can share with you all since i do good writing in the journal. But the week atleast ended well! Last week of the transfer has now started so we'll see what happens. keep me posted on life and how everyone is doing! i love you all.
