Transfer week no move for me
Date: October 07, 2013
Companion: Elder K McKim
Monday was awesome we went to a place called Glen Afric, (check it out on the web)
They have loads of animals there. we got 30 minutes to play and interact and take pics with elephants which was really cool. then after that we got to have a look at some tigers, leopards, cheetahs, lions. we also got 10 minutes to play with 4 month old lion cubs which was awesome.
Afterwards we went to a Chinese restaurant, which I hardly ate anything. Then we went to a place called Chameleon Village which is where they sell loads of Africa stuff and I got some cool stuff. then after that we went and emailed.
On Tuesday it was exchange, so in our district there is me and my comp and 2 other elders. our District leader was Elder Tew but he was transferred and made zone leader, so Elder Dalton his comp in our district got a new comp from Madagascar.
Also my comp is now our district leader. so we went to the office to do the exchange. On the way back we stopped at Romans pizza, all elders do that at transfers, so there were a lot of elders in Romans. also Elder Rawnsley from Halifax in England went home. he was my first zone leader. after Romans we went shopping but they had hardly any food so we said we would come back tomorrow. we then went back to the flat for the new elder to unpack.
On Wednesday it was an OK day, we saw a guy called Nicholas who is a recent convert, he is preparing to go to the temple which is really cool. after wards we saw this guy called nelson, who we met street contacting, he is a sweet guy, he seems really interested. after wards we went and saw Dineo and her family, there a sweet family, we met them street contacting, they seem really interested but the mum is always busy so we only really teach the kids but its hard teaching them. afterwards we went back to the flat ate and went to bed.
On Thursday Elder Dalton was ill so my comp stayed with him and the new elder and I went out to do work. on the way to one of our areas Ga-Rankuwa we stopped by this huge abandoned stadium, it was awesome. then we went to our appointment, its with a recent convert, his name is Ghopolong, afterwards we went to our other appointment but she wasn't there so, we tried a few people in Mabopane.
We saw this lady called Wilhelmina, she is a really kind but quite ill we think she will pass soon.
On Friday it was an OK day we saw only 2 people, we saw a kid who just got the priesthood, his name is Tlohi, he is a cool kid, so yeah Friday was a slow horrible day.
On Saturday we saw the Saturday morning session of general conference also the family with the mum who is always busy, the father and 4 kids came to it which was awesome.
On Sunday we watched all the sessions they were showing, i really loved it there were some cool talks in there. also the kids who came to the Saturday session came to all of them on Sunday too.
So this week has been a better week, still missing home, also I'm still trying to get used to the food. there is a few times I've said I'm not eating cause here they love sweet potato and pumpkin and I really don't like them, but there has been a few meals I have loved.
The people here are really nice,
I'm loving my companionship.
I hope the is a better email mum.
