Hello everyone! how are you all doing?? I hope you are doing as good as I am... because I'm doing AWESOME!!! So this last week there was a lot of fun things that happened as you can imagine ha ha ha there is always fun things going on in my life!!  But man it has been a tiring week!  So I will get on with the usual story telling time!

So this week we were talking to one of our Recent converts and he is going through some rough times and we are helping him figure his life out. So we were over at his house and he told us that his cousin was stealing all of his money and making him pay a crazy amount of money for rent!  So he told us that he didn't have the money and so we were like... well just don't pay her and move out and you can go stay with this one other guy in the ward! and that is what he did!!!  This awesome African Member took him in and is letting him live with him!! Man it is so cool to see how the church is really like one big family out here!!  Everyone looks out for one another!  But it all didn't happen just that easy, there was a lot of behind the scenes drama to go with it!!!  So ya that is what a lot of missionary work is, ha ha ha, dealing with peoples DRAMA!

Well we were able to find this one African Family this week with a dad and 2 Sons and it was awesome he has been talking to the missionaries on and talking with them and so we randomly show up at his door and then he tells us "hey did the church send you?" and we were like um no we are just knocking around!! and he was like well that's funny I was just talking to missionaries online... so he invited us in and we taught the 1st lesson to him and his sons!!  But dang it was awesome to teach them!!!  They are so elect its crazy.  But they came to church this Sunday and it turns out that they know a bunch of people in the ward already, and now he just wants to learn more and more!!!

Well today we just got done Golfing with a member which was awesome!!!  It is nice to go out and have some fun once in a while!!  But its nice to get back to work too!!!  So ya it was nice talking to you all I hope you have an awesome week just remember that The Church is true and to Keep Smiling!!!
