taught a lesson in zulu/english
okay that one is actually pretty cool so we
are teaching this guy named skibha (which is t-shirt in zulu) and he doesn't

working super duper hard and i've felt the spirit like crazy! Church was really
good this week! I always love fast and testimony meeting the most and listening
to all of the members bear their testimonys! Really awesome! It's just sort
have happened that this week we talked about the plan of salvation soooo many

is true and it's such a comfort to know that the friends and family that we
have in this life are not just temporary but forever. We can live with everyone
we love forever and ever because of the plan of salvation and because of the
atonement of jesus christ! Just really cool stuff!
Okay i love you all so much! Have a shap
