Salibonani Week 55!

Rain, rain, and more rain!
That is the theme of this past week! I'm sure some of you have heard about the cyclone that hit part of southern Africa the last 4 days. Here in Bulawayo, and much of southern Zimbabwe, we had lots and lots of rains. There was no wind, just rain. There was quite a bit of flooding, but not enough to cause harm to anyone. We were still able to get around when we needed to, but it did result in less missionary work. Surprisingly, people aren't really too keen to hear from us when they are getting poured on!
When there was a break from the rain we were able to find and teach. We found quite a few new investigators this week, one of which wants to be baptized! We had a missionary activity this weekend where we split up and went to visit investigators and less actives with some members. We got to work with Bishop Dube, and with the Stake President, so that was cool. We found some investigators and some really great members to reactivate. It was a success for sure. We have been helping out some other wards with baptisms and got witness 2 baptisms in the Bulawayo Town Branch on Sunday. It was nice to see the work moving on even with no missionaries. Baptisms are coming up the next few weeks.
There were three fun things that happened this week:
1. During the rain and floods one morning, the four of us at our flat decided to make boats out of cardboard and paper, and race them down the river caused by the floods. It was fun! My boat came in second, and Elder Mhlungu was first place.
2. I found a shop that sells Root Beer! I haven't had a Root Beer in over a year. Elder Aden and I were so happy to finally drink it again! :)
3. We had attended a Priesthood activity in Luveve Branch and got to help with the braai (BBQ). I helped make some Sadza and burned myself a little.

Time continues to move, and this week is the final week of the transfer. There is a 50/50 chance of me staying or leaving Bulawayo since I have been here for 3 transfers. I have no idea, but will be finding out this week what will be happening the next 6 weeks.
I love you all and continue to wish you the best. Please stay happy and stay safe! :)
