Letter from Michael-Third week in Protea Glen- 5-19-2014
Last week went by very fast. We had many member and less active member lessons and got quite a few referrals. While tracting we found some members that haven't had missionaries in there home in forever. So we had some good unexpected lessons with them. Now we can see them every now and then. I have never gotten so many referrals from people in one week. It is great!
Ephraim we cannot see anymore and can't abandon his church. He gave us a note that we cannot continue with him. His mother doesn't want us there. As we were walking away he said he might come to the church this coming Sunday. So I'm confused with that whole thing. Then there is Karabo who we probably are not going to see again.
This Sunday I taught the investigator / recent convert class. It went quite well and I taught the class about repentance. I have never been in one of those classes with so many people in it. It is a big difference. The ward is great and the people are very kind and happy. We have a recent convert named Itumelang. He is powerful. He just received the priesthood at church yesterday. He is a great man and has a strong testimony. He even cam to the church on Saturday to clean the church with us. In the middle there is a court yard that is invested with pigeons. It was quite a service project cleaning up all of that poo. Itumelang's wife was already a member for years and now him. Soon they can go to the temple together. Well that is a summary of the week.

Part of his letter to his dad:
Hey, I heard from Haynes that Desmond is still very powerful! He came to church 3 out of 4 times and has a baptism date in mid June. Apparently people miss me a lot in Polokwane. Oh and they found Lionel's sister and family who is also powerful! Only the sister not the brother in-law is a member. Senele was busy last time but he did come to church. 3 times in a row now. We found a guy named Thabiso.
