So my new companion is Elder Malunga. I have been a round him a good amount and he will be here for four weeks before he goes home. So i will be here in Germiston for at least one more transfer after this! So yeah this week was really good!1! There were a lot of goodbye with Elder Gramu and also we got to see some new faces. We have this one investigator name Selina and she last week brought two investigators to church and this week she brought another new person!

So this week was pretty normal but not at the same time. We start on P-day last week. I was able to go with some other Elder for the night because my companion had his final interview and also the departing Elders dinner with the Leavitts! So that was actually pretty exciting. He enjoyed and I enjoyed as well. He will be going home next week Monday and so then I will be getting my other companion who is going home! We had transfers on Tuesday.

Transfer News

Sweet... so this week we were able to have transfer news. So I am staying with Elder Gramu for the last 2 weeks of his mission. When he leaves I will being getting a Elder named Elder Malunga. He will be going home at the end of this next transfer and so I will be killing him as well. Then President gave me reassurance stating that next transfer I will be getting a fresh new missionary. So something to look forward to!! But I am really excited for this next few weeks. I have been enjoying Germiston. Anyways also Elder Palkki will be training this transfer so I will be receiving a grandson! That is really exciting and I am glad that he will have that chance to train a Greenie! Also President called me as a district leader and so that is kind of exciting. I don't now anything about my district which is what is scaring me! Anyways nothing to much going on this side! But in general we have six investigators on date! We are super excited for them and they are progressing very well!! Anyways nothing to much to report! I love you all!!

Zone Conference, Baptism and Chickens

Well this week was cool! On Sunday we were able to Baptize the brother of the lady we baptized 2 weeks ago. His name is Kamogelo and he is a really good kid. He has awesome faith for his age and is excited to grow in the Gospel. I had to baptize him three times because his legs would just come up. I told him it was because he did not repent enough. But it was quite funny. We were able to help a member kill some chickens this week and in payment she will give us one of them. So that is a free dinner!!! YAY!! Haha She is really cool and gives us chicken all the time. So yeah that was cool! Also this week we had our Zone Conference. We had some great information given to us and I learned a lot. It is also really nice to be able to see some old missionary friends. But yeah all is going well this side. We are surviving and working pretty well. All in all the work is still good and we are loving Germiston. I love you all! Stay well.
