Week 47

Hello everyone,

Last Monday we went to a castle which was more like a glorified fort. I got some cool pictures and a video of a cannon going off.

This week has been a bit slower. All of our Malawian friends had to attend a funeral for someone in the church all week which meant a lot of dropped appointments. We were able to see some new people that we had found last week. The Banda family is a new family and we've taught them the restoration and so far things are going well with them. We also saw a guy named Faison. Who is related to the Bandas. We gave him a baptism date for June and he's doing well.

We were able to see the Gideons on Tuesday and start teaching them about the Plan of Salvation. We only finished the first half and wanted to teach the second half since their grandmother had just passed away but they ended up not being able to see us again.

We've actually met a lot of less active members this week; either by chance or by them wanting to see us. They all have some concerns but we're going to do our best to help them resolve those concerns so that they can start coming back to the only true church. A few of them were offended by people who used to attend the Meadowridge ward but are no longer there so hopefully they'll come back because they will be a great help for the branch we want.

The only other interesting thing this week was that President Wood came to our district meeting. It's always awesome when he comes. He and Sister Wood add a lot of great insights and we had a great lesson about charity.

Friday night was games night again. We got to play soccer and badminton and I shot a basketball for the first time in eight months. The ball was pretty flat though. Sorry that this letter is a bit short but not much happened this week.
