jumping right into the action here,
- Lunch time: Zone Leaders: "Hey, will you guys help the Mambo and Mkoba 2nd Elders move into the new house in Mkoba 1 Tomorrow?"
- Me: "Yea, sure, of course."
- 9:00pm Zone Leaders: "Elder Nzimande and Elder Williams, You guys are actually going to be moving in to the new house. . . be ready at 9am tomorrow."
- Me: "OK. . . oh wait, WHAT?"
Well, so this week was pretty awesome. We have been seeing increased help from the members in the ward this transfer, and so we had a good week despite the chaos as well as a day and a half of trying to get things working in the house. We are still heating up water for bucket baths in mornings (the water heater, or "Geyser" isn't working yet) and as soon as power goes in the morning we no longer have running water but hey! we met our indicators for Member presents again! happy day =P
There is a Family that we are teaching right now (We just baptized the youngest son 3 weeks ago), they are the Phiri family, and the 3 oldest Children are less active members (baptized in 2003) and so we are teaching the Father, Mother, and the twin sister of Mario. They are a really cool family, and are related to our RC's from march, as well as a member who has been for a while. It has been really nice teaching them, (only been 2 weeks, 3 lessons) but the challenge has been getting them to church. I really hope to see the family baptized this transfer or next, but alot sits on the Aunt helping them alot. A good fellowshipper can make the difference for investigators between being baptized and not, as well as how fast they can be ready.
Attaching pictures of the last 2 baptism, as well as a ginormous avacado (VERY tasty btw)
So, I will be attaching pictures of the new house as well as stuff from the last two weeks.
Mom:What type of music is popular there?
Lots of reggae and house music, as well as R&B.
Do they do the traditional music we hear in the USA for African music?I love the traditional stuff with a little of the modern added to it.
What do they use for instruments?
I honestly don't know =/ My comp says: guitars, mbira- mostly these
Well, I love you all, and remember that you are all aloud to email me! so feel free to just tell me what is going on! =P
