So a lot has happened recently. Elder Fonua is being transferred to Fisheok in Cape Town and I am training Elder Bowers from U.S. So yeah I am very excited to start training my new elder.
This week has been okay in terms of the work. We've had a ton of dropped appointments and spent most of the week teaching RCs and LAs. Most of our investigators dropped their appointments. School holidays are approaching soon. Lots of people will be visiting relatives in Ilinge. It will be a great opportunity to get more investigators.
I am thinking on working with the part member families in our area. We have a lot youth in the ward who are the only members in their families. Many just live with their mothers. Solid, father led families are hard to come by. But I feel that we need to strengthen the families already in the church before we bring more in.
The weather has been very hot. Summer time is really starting to set in here. The area is going through a drought. It is very dry and the local government has to ration water to the people living in the Ilinge area.
Ilinge is such a rural place, There is only one paved road in the whole area. It is a very pretty drive from Queenstown to our area every morning though.
Things are going great overall. I am excited for this wonderful opportunity to train a new missionary and to serve the Lord with all my heart, mind, and strength.
