Letter from Michael 11-16-2015 -Three Weeks Left
This week was much nicer for us. We had a fun activity with the mission. It was like a zone conference with also games, a hike, and a Speaker who is a woman who climbed Mount Everest. We compared her experience climbing Mount Everest with the missionary work. We were able to meet with many people last week. Still only Karabo came to church but at least we have a teaching pool now. We found when we taught and taught when we found people to teach. We found them through tracting, referrals, and found more people to teach as we went to appointments. We teach the friends and family of those we already visit to teach. Mdu, the ward mission leader, is still a big help for us. We finally have a branch list and will soon see if we can find other members to come teach with us. We are especially looking for the young men to help. It will also help them as they prepare to serve a mission.
It is hailing HARD right NOW! The last time I saw hail it was my first day in South Africa. It was so much that it looked like snow!
Quotes for the week:
Love is the guiding light that illuminates the disciple’s path and fills our daily walk with life, meaning and wonder. Love is the measure of our faith, the inspiration for our obedience, and the true altitude of our discipleship. Love is the way of the disciple.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf, GC, 10/2010.
"Above all the attributes of godliness and perfection, charity is the one most devoutly to be desired. Charity is more than love, far more; it is everlasting love, perfect love, the pure love of Christ which endureth forever. It is love so centered in righteousness that the possessor has no aim or desire except for the eternal welfare of his own soul and for the souls of those around them." Bruce R. McConkie.
