Letter from Michael 3-2-2015, Progression in eMalahleni
This was a pretty good week in our area. In fact it was the best week I think I have had in Witbank. We have received some referrals and found many people while tracting. A couple of our investigators are becoming more serious. Stuart and Tapiwa are on date for the first week in April. We finally started teaching Selena and her husband. We taught them on Saturday and things went well. The husband might take some time though. Stanley has gone up to Zimbabwe with his family for a family event up there. We did get to see him though before he left and we shared the Word of Wisdom with it. He enjoyed it and understood pretty well. He is a smart guy. He is willing to make some sacrifices to keep the commandment. We still have not set a baptismal date yet for him but we will try when he comes back from Zimbabwe.
Today is our zone activity and we are bowling. I don't think I have gone bowling since my very first P-day in the mission field. Elder Novotny actually plays a few instruments. On mission he found a recorder and plays it every now and then. Often times he even sticks the recorder up his nose and plays it. It is ridiculous! On Friday I taught district meeting. The assigned topic was dress and grooming. It went well. I made a game out of it.

Quote of the Week:
The gift of the Holy Ghost comes after one repents and becomes worthy... The Holy Ghost bears witness of the truth and impresses upon the soul the reality of God the Father and the Son Jesus Christ so deeply that no earthly power or authority can separate him from that knowledge."
- President James E. Faust
Part of letter to his mom:
We were not able to make it to Middleburg to see Quintin this week. We taught Stanley once. Nothing yet has come from the father lead families we found the other week. One of the families heard some false information about the church from their real estate manager. Shame. President Dunn told me that he will let me know about the coming home date next Monday.
