Well 7 months is by and by now so times just flying. Elder Milne and myself only have about two more weeks together we predict so we're trying to make the most of what we have left.
We were teaching one of our best investigators Sive and he invited his friend Carl to join us. Carl is very interested in the gospel and with these two guys they're really struggling with peer pressure and the influence of the world during teenage years. I really liked when Carl said, "I feel like the world is getting so bad and I think I was born to stand out." it was awesome. We talked that the gospel and light of Christ really helps one stand out among the crowd and how when we follow god's commandments he will shape us into who we want to become. The gospel allows us to stand out. Further in the lesson we were talking about repentance and he had another comment, he had asked if he can repent everyday and we said "of course!" He was super excited and was yelling "Yes Jesus I never knew that!!!" haha, oh it was funny but very true. It's awesome he realized he can repent anytime of day if he has a sincere heart and wants that change to take place in his life. We taught that repentance is a daily thing and as we confess our sins to god with a willing heart and real intent to change, God will be able to forgive us.
Speaking of General Conference because our chapel has a satellite receiver I'm excited to watch some of the sessions live!
Unfortunately though Zwide area will be shut down for a time so Elder Allred is flying out today to his new area, Fish Hoek, and Elder Lane will be driving to his new area later this week, Knysna. It's sad they'll be leaving but we're all young so we'll probably be together again at some point.
All in all a very good week and we're excited to see what this week has in store! Hopefully not 114 F heat again followed by a day of cold cold rain. Port Elizabeth is very bipolar with it's weather. It keeps us on our toes though!
Until Next Week!
