Letter from Michael 3-23-2015 (No Car!)
This week was a bit of a challenge for us. On Wednesday our car broke down and we were stranded trying to figure out what to do next. Eventually we got the other Elders to pick us up. They also helped push the car to an investigators house to leave until morning when we could get a tow truck to take it to the car dealership to get fixed. The car is still there and probably will be there for the rest of this week. We had to cancel all but 2 of our appointments for the week. Our closest appointment was a 2 hour walk away then 2 hours back. We mostly did contacting and found some people to teach. We started teaching a new father lead family. The father's name is Charles.
Another father lead family we are teaching is Kevin and his family. Kevin is the guy in the wheelchair who sat in from of President Dunn, Elder Novotny, and me. We have taught him about the restoration, the Book of Mormon, and introduce the plan of salvation. He is going through a hard time right now. He is now fighting cancer, has diabetes, and lost his leg to gangrene. He is a great man with a wonderful family; a wife and 2 sons.
Anyway, we saw Kevin with President Dunn and Sister Dunn. They enjoyed coming out with us very much. Kevin committed to coming to church and being baptized. We have 8 people on date for baptism now namely Stuart, Selena, Esther, Queen, Tapiwa, Kevin, Dudu, and Bob. I found Kevin while tracting with Elder Hughes when we were on exchanges.

Part of his letter to his mom: Yes, it was great having president and Sister Dunn there. We had a great lesson with Kevin. We reviewed the restoration with him and watched the movie. Then we testified and invited him to be baptized. The Spirit was very strong.
We did not talk to the old man from Czech Republic again.
Part of his letter to his dad:
It has been hard getting people to church. This week a friend of a member came to church. We will start teaching her this week. Also Dudu came to church. Selena was at her brother-in-law's funeral. Everyone in the branch treats her as if she is already a member. The relief society fellowship her very well.
