Easter and Exchanges

This week was just like any other week. To start the week off we had exchanges which occurred on Tuesday. I went with Elder Wolfgramm to the Randburg/Sandton area and Elder Palkki stayed in our area with Elder Shepardson. Elder Wolfgramm and I decided it was time to go and contact Sandton CBD (Central Business District) which is the richest square mile in all of Africa. As we decided this we also thought yanno white shirts and ties really are under dressing here so lets wear suits. So we suited up and contact for around three hours there. It really was one of the better days on mission. It was actually really fun and we felt really good as we did it. Considering people wear suits around in Sandton we really didnt stick out to much and we were able to gain the respect of some of the people that we talked to. Especially we were talking to this one guy and we said we are not Jay Dubs or Jehovah's Witnesses and he said I can tell you are in suits. So that really stuck out and it was kind of funny. But yeah throughout the week nothing super crazy happened. We just had our normal contacting and lessons. Nothing new has came up so far. But we finally got some people to come to church this week. Easter was literally a normal day for us and yeah we were unable to see anyone. But anyways I love you all!!
