Friends, family, and penguins.    Nov 7, 2016


No one uses the phrase "what's up" hear so every time i say it people jsut get so confused and don't konw how to respond so i really really like doing it ;)

Nompilo is doing great! We were only able to see her once this week! She's been pretty busy! But we taught her about the restoration and it was a really good lesson. Her friend was there as well and her friend is a member so it was cool to have here bear her testimony as well! 

The coolest thing that happened this week was that we had stake conference. It had to be held in the Durban city hall because there were too many people to fit in a chapel. The city hall is HUUUUUGGGGGEEEEEEEEE! And it was soooo full! I'll send some pics. But there were soooo many people there and it was really really cool to see everyone. I saw some people from Esikhawini and from Ezakheni as well so that was pretty gnarly! 

All of the missionaries around the area came early and we stood outside the hall and sang hymns and handed out copies of the book of mormon and pass along cards and stuff and when we were singing people were filming us and taking pictures and it  was just a lot of fun...i usually don't like singing but we made it super fun! 

We went bowling last p day....i don't wanna brag or anything buuuut i won <3

I've just been having the time of my life lately and i've really come to know that every little effort that we make torwards spreading the gospel is so so critical. The small things matter sooo much and maybe we wont see anything happen all at once but i promise you that you will eventualy see miracles happen! I can promise that because i've seen it in my own life!

Thanks for everything family friends and penguins!

Until next week, stay chill <3

Shap shap everyone!! 

How is lyfe?????

So first off Nomphilo is doing good! We saw her a couple times this week! She has really opened up to us and she really trusts us now i think. It's kinda hard cause she says there are just so many people trying to get her to their churches and telling her all of these things and she is getting really confused but we can tell that she likes it when we come over and i think that she believes what we are teaching. We keep stretching the importance of prayer to her and she tells us that she prays alllll the time. Morning night, on the way to work, and just every where so that's really good! This week we were teaching her about faith and repentance and at the end of the lesson she broke down in tears. She was just talking about how much she misses him. I had tears in my eyes as well. and we were able to promise to her that she will be able to see her husband again and that he is watching over her right now. It was really cool and the spirit was very strong. I'm so grateful for all of your prayers for her and i would ask you to continue to pray for her! I really think that it's helping her! :)

oh and btw HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Also our branch had the primary program this sunday and it was literally the cutest thing that i've ever laid eyes on! It was sooooooooooo funny and all the kids were so freaking cute!

I love you all so much! Go get sick tonight off of all of your candy!!!
