Week 79-November 28, 2016
Hey fam, sounds like a great thanksgiving for the J-squad. Loved the pics mom thanks! Good luck at school for exams Ashley- and sorry to hear youre ill. Way to catch a fish mom!
Well, the time has come for me to say goodbye to Elder Mthombeni- he's leaving tomorrow and guess where he's going... Basildon! I can't believe it! I am very sad to say goodbye to him- he was a great companion and we worked really well together. Missionary life is very strange- you live with someone 24/7 and go through so much together only to leave one day and then go home to different parts of the world. Ill miss Elder Mthombeni, but i know he'll help Basildon ward. And hopefully some of the people I taught.
Ill be receiving Elder Metcalf- i dont know him very well yet but I am excited to work with him and learn from him. We have a lot of work to do here in the zone.
Sherree came to church again and is getting ready for her baptism! the only hiccup may be her family and her job that requires her to work on sundays sometimes. pray that she can find a new job if you can! she wants to keep the sabbath day holy.
Angela and her whole family got really sick this weekend but they are also doing well. she is worried she wont be able to get married before christmas cause Paulo is leaving the country in a week or two and the offices are busy. so her baptism may have to be postponed... im sure the Lord will provide a way though. the boys are doing as good as ever!
Mom, i got your package! Thank you so much for the christmas tree..... i love the christmas tree with the days on it and the chocolates so much :) thank you so so much!!!
I love spending christmas here on mission because I get to speak to people about Christ all day every day. i love being a missionary and i love this area, i am so grateful i get to stay another transfer! The church is true and worth any and all the opposition we may get for being disciples of Christ.. have an awesome week!
