Thank you for the birthday wishes :) Its funny because I like telling
people how my mom considered taking back to the hospital during the
first nine months haha. We had another great week here :) It was a
blast to go back to Nelspruit and Kanyemazane. We held our Zone
meeting there and our mission president showed up so that was a blast.
The Senior couples there fed us everyday and made me a birthday cake
which had to have been the best cake I have had in two years! The
Baxter's and the Hunt's have to be the best senior couples in the
mission right now. While I was on exchanges with Elder Parrish in
Kanyemazane we tracted up a small mountain. We were looking for some
where to tract and we saw all these little shacks going up this little
mountain and we thought for fun we would tract them all. When we got
to the top we found someone living up there and he was more than happy
to invite us back. The next day they went back it turned out the guy
was a traditional healer and had two wives so it didn't work out.
Polygamy is something that a few of the African tribes practice so we
have to be careful who we teach sometimes.
My birthday was awesome. We had our branch conference and one of the
members got me a present :) (a chocolate bar). There are so many great
members here and they all have such strong testimonies. We also got
fed Sunday lunch which was great and then went tracting the rest of
the day. We are emailing early today because we are having our Zone
activity and we are going to go see the only hippo in the world that
you can actually touch! Its a place about three hours away from here
so we are all car pooling to get there. So I will have some good
pictures next week.
I am so happy you got to go to Judy's Ironman race. I know that meant
so much to her. I got an email from her this week so I am excited to
email her back. I am excited to see what you senta package but I probably
wont get it for at least another couple of weeks because I am so far from our office.
Thank you so much for everything you do for me mom. I really don't know where I would
be without your guidance and love. I am doing great. Had a little to much junk food for
my birthday but still great haha. My health is better than its been for a long time and
continues to improve. Know that I love and miss you and hope that you
have a great week :)
