Visit to the zoo and Baptisms!

Hello Everyone!

How goes it back home!? Hopefully everyone is good. This week was a great week so much has happened since i last wrote. Last Monday we went to the zoo and had a great time. We went with basically all of our zone! I still think i like our zoo more but i think i am a bit bias. We had a lot of great lessons this week with Investigators as well as members! On the 31st of January it will be the first baptism of an investigator i will be apart of. She has been taught for awhile now an finally is back home from holiday so she can get baptized. She was actually supposed to get baptized in November but she had a dream where she would be in January and thats what she wanted to do! We also have had some lessons with Matias and we committed him to being baptized finally! We scheduled him for about the middle of February so hopefully that will stay good. I also went on exchanges this week with another missionary name Elder Mkwizu. It was awful... We biked all day back and forth from the same place. All i will say is that it was the most planned out day. All i know is that i am thankful for having a car. On Saturday we had a "mini-mission" were we took priest aged young men with us for thee whole day. It was a stake wide activity an very awesome. Our priest was named Gilbert and he was from the Jo-burg 2 ward. It was a great experience for him and he enjoyed it. The thing is we usually take the priests out teaching with us so for our ward it was kind of normal. Lastly transfers were this week so it was a very stressful Saturday as well. But my companion and I are staying here. The biggest news that is happening is that they re Re-Opening Jo-burg area. It has been closed for like 15 months. Our zone leaders are actually the ones opening it up so hopefully i will get to ere there i have heard the teaching is good. Anyways that is about all that happened this week see y'all next week.
