Greetings again from Cape Town! Been another beautiful week here. Had some rain yesterday morning. Not much but enough to get the ground wet. Its really hot today oh my goodness haha. I'm used to it but don't like it. I would love some snow!! Go boarding today for a P day or somethin haha jk!! This past week has been slow. Not a whole lot going on. We have people to teach but we can only see them in the evenings since they work during the day. So our eveingings are busy! haha
Monday- P day, did usual stuff, laundry, eamil, shopping. then joined up with Fish Hoek Elders and went Mini golfing. It was fun! haha. got a few hole in ones. :) Then had FHE with the Abrahams family. it was fun too! My comp gave a short lesson and then we did some riddles, BLACK MAGIC, CUPS and one Servioiuttes. (*FYI black magic is a mind game in which you guess the pattern and we have no idea what servioiuttes is so we're going to ask on that one)
Tuesday- Had zone conference in Sommerset West. So we got up at 6 and left by 7 it was a nice hour drive. We took baden powell drive by the Indian Ocean. It lasted till 4 and the topics were being physically, temporally and spiritually fit. It was good. We now have to come up with workout plans and a food diet for each week. Which we are anyway. Then we had a few less active appointments that night.
Wed- well woke up and my comp was sick so he called pres and described his symptoms and he had Hemorrhoids. Not fun i hear! So we went to the doctor and sat there for a good 2 hours. So he is now getting better but still in pain a little. he has to go back tomorrow. So we didn't do much that day. Had a D.A. with the Dennis family it was good. We had fajitas of some kind. Then visited David (I) the Anohemys (M). David hasn't been progressing. He works as a waiter at some place so his shifts are always scattered. his wife is tho. She has been reading from the BoM so thats good. We committed her to set up a BD but when she heard that she backed off. So i dunno. We are trying our best! (*D.A. means dinner appointment, LA lunch appointment, I investigator, M member, and BD baptism date)
Thursday- had our weekly planning from 10 to noon. then did service with Brother Sckeepers. He is building a better roof for his garage so we helped him with bricks. It was fun haha. then met with Patrick and Judith (LA) they are wonderful people. Just Patrick needs to get Sundays off so he can come to church. His wife and daughter come tho. so thats good.
Friday- Had district Meeting then lunch. It was good we cooked for Fish Hoek (*Elders). Had rice and hamburger and mixed it all together haha. tasted just fine. Simple and easy. then met with Ezekiel (I) who wants to be baptized and is looking forward to it! He has questions for us about the his reading in the BoM every time we see him which is awesome!! So we are looking forward to baptizing him soon. Then we had dinner at the Sckeepers! had a Bry (BBQ) so they cooked snoek (Fish) and chicken. It was really good!
Sat- had correlation with Brother Vincent (ward mission leader) and then went to meet with Brian (I) but was leaving when we got to his home. So we asked him to come to church and he didn't :( We are going to find out next week why. Then met with Ezekiel again and then Giscard (RC) he is doing well. Then had a DA with the Kipela Family. Had PAP and chicken and rice and a salad. Very good i like PAP if its eaten with sauces. Then met with david and just visited with him mostly. (*we think RC means recent convert; pap is like porridge or gruel)
Sunday- Fast sunday i about died! haha jk i was fine but around 3 i got really hungry. luckily we ate at the Hendricks (M) very good! visited with them till we came back at 7 so my comp could report stats. had the sommerset west elders come to give the baptism interviews for our 5 investigators. long day.
Well i will try to find a map. I've been looking for a Manchester soccer jersey to purchase cause i'm told i look like one of the Players, Sckulls (*we think he means Paul Scholes which after googling him Rob does kind of look like him a little), haven't found one yet. So today we'll look. I did buy my scripture case-a giraffe one its cool haha.
Um what else?? I love you all!! I don't have much time left, so ask questions next week. Have fun with the cows and snow and stuff!
