The weeks are flying by
We started out this week with a Braai at the Zone Leaders and Elder Steffensen bought some giant steaks and they were pretty great. One of the Pirate Ships at the Disney Studios was moved closer to the N2 so we had a nice view of it on the drive.
Tuesday I was on Exchanges with Elder Wamunyima, my Zone Leader and we had a great time with some powerful lessons.
Wednesday Elder Steffensen came back sick and so we were put in sick rest for the day so I did a lot of cleaning and studying.
Thursday was a normal day, we had a great lesson with Coffant, one of our investigators and we actually set a baptismal date for him on August 20th.
Friday was powerful, we had a meet and greet (kind of a zone conference) with President Lebethoa and his family and the three Cape Town Zones. It was powerful and he is going to be a really awesome mission president. He is full of fire and is ready to push this mission from the get go which is awesome! I'm excited.
Saturday we had a normal day and had a nice appointment with our bishop and his wife in the evening.
Sunday we had a great day at church and afterwards went to Mama Doreen's for an appointment and she fed us some nice sandwiches. Following we went to our Lunch Appointment at mama Mtila's with the other Elders. We had a great time there. Following that Elder Steffensen and I drove into Cape Town and we had a nice DA with the Hansen's (The Sr. Couple. He was a history teacher at Snow Canyon) We had a great taco salad and I was able to help Sister Hansen with some music stuff and we had a nice lesson.
As a district we've been looking for ways to push the ward and increase the ward's involvement with missionary work, as of late there is none, but we drafted a Ward Mission Plan in District Meeting and we presented it to the Bishop. We now have a spot on the bulletin and we're hoping it will work to bring missionaries and members together. Our vision is that the Missionaries and Members will be equally yolked to bring 5 individuals unto Christ per month with full retention and support. The Vision scriptures are D&C 38:40-41, and 18:10,15-16. We'll be pushing this for the ward and we're optimistic it will bring good change.
