This was the best week we have had since I have gotten here up here. Our stats were awesome. We have been asking for referrals and they have been coming in like crazy. They have been good new people too. Not just jokers. We are so busy and it is good. We had 11 investigators come to church which was like whoa! haha.
This week we went on two exchanges because of my companion's district leader responsibilities. The day that I was in the area we had a really good day. We took a young man who was just baptized two weeks ago. His name is Desmond and he loved it. He said it was the greatest day ever. So either we are awesome and he had tons of fun or there just isn't anything to do in Lenyenye haha. The other day I was in town with another missionary and lets just say I'd much rather be in village and township that town because it is a lot harder.

Saturday was a weird day. In the morning we attended a funeral. It wasn't just any other funeral though. The father of a missionary serving in Durban mission had passed away. It was sad but the missionary was really strong. he had been out for so long and I could see by his face that he was a good man and a good missionary. Then later on in the day we had an investigator break down and tell us that her  parents had both gotten HIV because her dad cheated on her mom and didn't tell her and she was just really worried about them dying because the youngest is 6. Then we come home and find out that an elder that is in our district got a call from President telling him that his grandmother passed away. The whole tragedy thing that day was freaking me out but I pray hard for everyone.
I have been thinking a lot about prayer. When we are on our knees we aren't praying to our beds but to our FATHER who is in Heaven. My companion gave a talk at church yesterday about prayer. He gave a quote by President Monson that said..."A man is tallest when he is on his knees." Remember to say your prayers and remember who you are praying too. The relationship that we can have with each member of the godhead is so important.
Have a good week everyone!
