Well I will start off with the highlight of the week! It happened Thursday night when we were picking up the Vooslorus Elders from their area! Eastfield was at the house as well as Germiston due to them being picked up/ picking up. So we get there and one of the Elders is hiding and they say he was feeling bad and he was at the toilet for like thirty minutes. So Elder Malunga took Elder Kealer to talk to him and see how he is doing. Meanwhile I sit down and see Elder Ngilazi hiding and he moves to a better place to hide. We then proceed to convince Elder Kealer that he ran away with some girls (knowing this Elder it was possible). So we talk Elder Kealer in to just leaving him and teaching him a lesson. He agrees after some persuasion and we leave. The other guys stayed a little longer and brought him back and then we had a meeting how to deal with Ngilazi. In the end we decided to "have him pay us to keep quiet". Elder Kealer this whole time was freaking out and was torn to do the right thing or the wrong thing so he plead the 5th and walked into another room. Then Elder Ngilazi went in and just started Laughing the whole time and yeah really funny!! I felt bad so we will go out to lunch soon and I will buy. But yeah this week was actually really powerful. We started to teach a lady that has cancer! She is related to a member and has a strong christian background. She is soo cool and we will start the Plan of Salvation this week! We taught what I would call the make or break lessons to Godswill and Dumazile (Law of Chastity and Word of Wisdom). So yeah they took it well and committed to live them both.They disappointed us though when they did not come to church but oh well I guess. But yeah all is well down here in South Africa! We have 5 investigators on date and we are shooting for 2 more coming up so it is great!! I am excited! Anyways Love you guys!
