14th APR 2014
Hey Everyone!
  So this is most likely my last P-Day in Mdantsane.
  Elder Sombke had a procedure done to his foot that has put him out of commission for a while. So this week we did not teach at all!  We stayed in the boarding all day on Wednesday, most of Thursday, and Saturday. I miss working!  I shouldn't complain though, Elder Sombke needed his foot fixed.
  Thursday we had Zone Training/Interviews from our Zone Leaders and from President Wood. That was awesome and uplifting!
  Yesterday (Sunday), we had 6 baptisms in our ward, 2 were from my area! I was blessed with baptizing Siphuxolo!  Linda was also baptized in my area! It was an amazing baptism and the water in the font was brown! I couldn't see the bottom! Dang Africa:) It was also very very cold! Our Ward Mission Leader said we were trying to mimic the water from the River Jordan where Christ was baptized! Lame but funny joke.

  Tonight I find out my transfer news. I hear through the great vine that I am leaving my area but I have no idea where. So I don't know where I'll be! Somewhere in South Africa! No worries, the Lord will take care of me.
  Sorry for the short email but nothing really happened this week! I'll send some pics! I love you all and miss you! Thanks for everything!

31st MARCH 2014

Hey Everyone!
   ...the highlight this week was Conference! I loved every single bit of it! And I didn't fall asleep once! What an accomplishment right?
     Wednesday, I had a delicious dinner! Elder Sombke has introduced me to Toppers. They are a cookie with cream in the middle just like oreos...They are just as good, if not better than Oreos! I can't believe I just said something is as good as oreos but its true! We ate 4 packs between each other for dinner. With Milk of course:) The following morning I paid for my mistake...
     Hanna Leavitt got her Call to Seoul, South Korea! Isn't that crazy?! And I hear Jeremy Waite is going to Kentucky. Cool stuff!
     One of our investigators, Linda Mateta, has a daughter, Ahlumile. She is the cutest thing ever! She turns 6 soon and every time she sees me she stops what she is doing and runs and gives me a hug! Its the best thing ever! Its like she is my niece!
     This week will go by extra quick. We have Zone Traininng and Interviews by President Wood this Thursday.
     Another cool story. I played Cricket for the first time on Friday! I was unprepared for sport except for some shoes so I was playing in my white shirt, slacks and some tennis shoes! I was allowed to play reluctantly because 1. I'm white (JK) 2. I've never played Cricket Before. I soon proved them that my athletic skills are pretty good still! The game of Cricket is super confusing, but after seeing it on so many TV's at members houses, I know how to play. Anyways, long story short, I won the game for my team! Running was easy, it was like doing ladders on a basketball court. Free throw line and back. So yesterday, the former Bishop of 2nd ward already recruited me for his team this Friday!
     The baptisms are still good for this Sunday! We will have regular church from 9 to 12, then watch the Sunday Afternoon Session from 1 to 3, and then have our baptismal service for 7 people after that! We are doing well in MD!
     My favorite talk from Conference has been the talk by Gary E. Stevenson. He is the presiding Bishop I think. He talked about the LDS athletes in the Olympics! I related to that talk so well! It was for Elder Prisbrey! I still have to watch the Sunday Afternoon Session so I might have a favorite talk next week! Who knows:)
     I love you all, thanks for everything. Apply the teachings that you learned from conference! If you don't follow up on it, it will be useless!
