This week we had zone conference. We talked a lot about the importance of the Book of Mormon, eating healthy, and budgeting. After they fed us a great pork meal. It was President Omer's last conference. The new one, President Dun, is coming at the end of June. I heard a story about him how he survived being mauled by a bear. Awesome! Anyway, I will miss Omer. He is pretty great.
The past couple of times there has been a guy named Kalebo. His girlfriend is a member of the church. But she dumped him. He was impressed that she had such a great faith in God and Christ that it took priority over everything. So he became curious about the church and has been coming and will continue to come. He asked a lot of great questions and asked what would be the best way he could know the truth. We explained about the Book of Mormon and gave it to him. Also we gave him a Gospel of Jesus Christ pamphlet. He wants one of those Gospel Principles books that we teach class with. I think he will progress well and this Sunday 4 investigators came to church. Kalebo, Gugu, Lebo, and Rose. The other day I tried "Smiley" I think it is called. It sounds like a drug but it is actually a cow's face. And those were the highlights of the week.
