The weather has been mildly warm this last week here in Cape Town. Although we had a thunderstorm last night coming off the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Town weather changes very fast and the wind can really blow if it wants to.
We had a very successful week in terms of missionary work. We found some really solid people through member referrals and the member missionary plan is starting to have a very positive affect on the faith of the members and us as well.
Five investigators showed up to church and we they are all very powerful and we may have some baptisms around the corner.
We taught some very spiritual and inspired lessons this last week and the people we are teaching are making huge strides forward. The "Meet the Mormons" fireside went well a lot of people were crying when it was finished so I would call it a success.
The bishop of our ward died this week after a long battle with liver failure. We found out on Friday it made a good day a little depressing. The bishop lived in our area so we visited his home often to do service for him and his wife. We gave his wife a blessing after church yesterday. It was a very emotional experience.
It seems like I've been involved in a lot of blessings these days. This last week has been full of people getting all emotional around me.
We had a fun P-day adventure last Monday. We searched all through the city of Capt Town for some Pop Tarts. We heard a rumor that a store sold imported American food. After a long journey and many disappointments we finally found them at a store all the way in Vredehoek.
It almost made me trunky opening up that box and reading the American labels and stuff. The small box cost us over 70 Rand. Yeah it was pricey. But it was soooo worth it!
So yeah awesome adventure! But on the flip side we've have had some very spiritual experiences with all the people that I come into contact with recently and I can see the changes being made in there lives.
We grow as individuals during times of trail and hardship. And although we don't realize it during the moment. We can look back and see how far we've come.
So That is all for this week. My most sincere apologies for the short letters. Time can be short on Mondays. The only day of the week I can email.
