I don't have much to say this week, so it will be a little short.
It was another busy busy week as a ZL in Bulawayo! We ended up having a baptism for a guy named Narald, who coincidentally was born of the 8th of March like me, just a year later in 1997. I thought that was pretty cool. He lives in Emakhandeni, but we continue to help them out even though they have no missionaries. We also got to help out with the baptism of a child of record in Gwabalanda named Michelle! It was cool because the mother was fairly less active, and we got her to come back to church because of the daughter getting baptized. We are having major struggles in our area getting people to come to church and really commit to what we are teaching them, but we are doing our best to work hard and work smart. I know that something will come through for us soon. The Lord will always bless us for our hard work and sacrifice! We have a ward Christmas party, and a joint ward sacrament meeting on Christmas day.
It has been raining like crazy here this week. Almost every day it has rained a least a little bit. The water situation is much better now, and the bond notes really haven't affected us missionaries much at all. The rain has made it tough to wash clothes and let them dry outside. One stressful thing is that one day this week, while it was pouring rain outside, we got two flat tires at the same time! Luckily, a guy was driving by and helped us out. One thing that I love about the people here is that they are willing to help others. :)
I love you all so much and I wish you all a wonderful week leading up to Christmas Day! Wherever you may be, remember the Savior this Christmas.
