Time is really flying and time is soon approaching on 11 months and a year- but- I'm not over the hill yet and Mandalay has yet to see the fire so there's still a lot to do.
We went to the Castle of Good Hope in the center of downtown. It was an awesome castle and it made me feel like I was in Europe again. We went on a self guided tour and had a fun time wandering around through all of the castle. It had a beautiful view of Table Mountain too, the day was perfect. Afterwards we took a short drive on the coast to Sea Point and took some pics. There's a reason why they call it the most beautiful mission in the world ;)
The rest of the week we've been keeping busy with the work. The work is slowly but surely picking up. We actually had PEC with the ward this week and the ward mission plan is starting to motivate the ward to do good. Our investigators are starting to keep commitments so hopefully in August we will be able to have some baptisms!
Mandalay is growing on me, it's dangerous, but your prayers and support are really helping. We'll be working to get some more investigators and get the work rolling like mad. Sorry for the short email this week but things are still going going going!
