Letter from Michael 8-24-2015 –Member Missionary Work
This week went well. Thanks to Brother Lerious we had many member present lessons. He helped out a ton with us last week. He gave a a couple referrals from part member families in the ward. We are now teaching Stacy and also Renato Lopes. Renato is a Roman Catholic who married an lds woman. They have been married for a few years and Renato is thinking about being baptized into the church so he wants us to come over every other week.
The Meet the Mormons movie and braai activity was a success. There was free dinner and the young women sold snacks for a fund raiser. Unfortunately no recent converts or investigators came to it. But many members came and really enjoyed being together for the activity.
On Sunday Shane, Immaculate, Kudzo, Renato, and Dell came to church. We did not get to teach Shane this week because when we scheduled an appointment with him and Kim there was a death in the family. We will meet with them next weekend. Also, a less active named Basil finally came to church. I had never seen him there before. Hopefully he will come next week as well.

Part of his letter from his mom:
Immaculate's scheduled baptism is before the new transfer. The district is doing very well. Hughes has not taught me to cook anything. He is cooking at a member's house on Friday though. We couldn't get to Dell's place last week because we were on bikes.
(Writing about the members helping this week: Perhaps it was because of the talk the Sunday before.)
This Tuesday is zone conference, by the way.
