Week 30

Hello Family,

Things here in Chimoio are going well. The work here just keeps on going. This week has been a good work week too. We have two people marked for baptism on January 1st. They’re named Raul and Ezeqiel. They have been coming to all the church activities since the church got here in Chimoio about five and a half months ago. Since they are little young, they had to wait a little bit. But now since Ezeqiel is getting baptized, his mom who is a very strong catholic is investigating the church. People here in Mozambique are pretty stubborn and not really ready to change. But she is smart too. Friday night we did family night at an investigators house. It was really fun. We gave a spiritual thought than we just played around. I thought I lost my memory card there. It has almost 1000 pictures. But I found it.

I also had my birthday this past Saturday. I’m 20 years old. Aren’t I old now? I was made a cake that was really good. I missed home a lot. It was my first b-day away from home.
It’s also been raining like crazy here. Almost all this week has been raining. We had to come to the city and buy irrigation boots. Elder Bene and I would run through puddles like we were little kids. It was so fun. The city was also flooding this past week.
Yesterday we colored with the primary kids. It was really fun. I also felt like a kid than too.
Sunday, we had a frequency of 78 people at church. That’s one of the highest amounts here in Chimoio. So that’s really cool. We also got three new investigators yesterday. So we just keep on getting them like crazy.

Thanks for the package. I will be looking forward to getting it. And trust me; I will be looking forward to taking out the money. I know these couple of weeks will be really hard, but did you realize when 2011 comes, I only have 5 months until I hit a year. That’s crazy. But let me know when would be the best time to call. It’s going to be next week already. Wow. I just got food poisoning. About sleeping, the senior couple that comes every once in a while, he gave me some sleeping pills to take. But I’m fine now. I love you all

Well, we are going to climb Cabe├ža do velho.
So until next week.
