Tsakane Township
We had a pretty good week and I will just get right into it. On Monday we  went to a return missionaries house and taught him and his family. Part of his family aren't members so it was really cool. He also bought pizza and  I'm not complaining about that. We had zone conference on Wednesday where we go through some workshops and learn from our leaders. There was a lot of changes regarding dress and grooming. One of the biggest changes is that we can't have backpacks anymore. We need to use messenger bags. Our President is so cool though. They have been working on one for just the South Africa Johannesburg mission. So we will be getting one of them soon. Will send a picture when it comes. We have been doing so good as far as having investigators but getting them into the waters has been a struggle. We have had 6 baptisms fall through will all of there own unique circumstances. So I don't know when the next baptism will be ha but we will keep working hard. On Sunday we took with us a lady named Thuli to go and fellowship some of our investigators that need it. She got them excited because she is one of those bubbly people. We also went to go and teach one less active and it turned out to be her cousin. She had no idea and said we were a blessing and she would never forget that day. It is cool how such little promptings that we listen to can bless the lives of us so much. A man never stands taller than when he is on his knees (or woman). I have been changing my prayers lately. Instead of asking for things so much. I ask for strength and courage to overcome all things. I am grateful for prayer and I really desire to keep these good habits up when I go home. Thank you for all the support again. Have a lekkar week.
