Thanksgiving was great this time around! We had a nice semi feast that was pretty good. Mashed potatoes and chicken, and it tasted nice. Well, this week FLEW by! oh my gosh! we had a baptism this weekend, and Mildret was quite ready for it. She was ready before I came, so I don't know her very well, but she is going to be a powerful new convert to the church.
In other news, the coolest thing that happened this week was at the end of our sunday night. The last appointment before dinner (last appointment of the night) fell through, and so we decided to drop those investigators, (they hadn't been to church now for 2 weeks and have missed the last few appointments) and now we needed a new father-led family. I said a quick prayer in my heart, and we decided to go to a street accross from some members to teach a lesson. We got to the start of the street, and I looked out at it and said to my comp and the Ward missionary, "guys, somewhere on this street is a father-led family that we are going to baptize by the end of January. Let's go find 'em!". So we set out and I felt pulled to one of the first houses. We knocked on the gate, and went and found the father (who, against odds, was there), and introduced ourselves. We went to his home (next door) and  taught about the Doctrine of Jesus Christ, extended a date, and set a return appointment. They seemed pretty interested, and we are seeing them again on Wednesday, so we'll see if they are the family we will beptize in January. =P Other than that, the week was pretty good. The baptism went well, and we had a lot of dinners in the area this week, and this coming week we will be doing a lot of service!!! happy day, it is going to be good.
well, onto. . .

 How is your health doing? 
Have you had a problem with allergies there?
It doesn't get that bad, I just get a runny nose during season transitions.
Do people there have a lot of health issues?
Not too many. More than back home, but not as much as the media makes it out to be.
overall, people eat pretty healthy here. Health issues come from breaking the LoC and WoW here. . .
Are you in the city right now? 
Yup, well, kinda. I live close to Harare, the Capitol city in Zim, so it is city like in my area, but not in the city. (kinda like the place we live as far as how suburban it is)
How are the members in this new area?
They are powerful. They love feeding us, and working with us so it is a nice time!
 Do you ever feel that there is true animosity towards the church there?
Not really. Nothing in Zim is like it was in Mutare. Nowhere else will you be called a satanist on a regular basis.
I love you all so much! keep on keepin on, and having fun!
