3rd June 2013, Zone Leader, Queenstown South Africa

Mom and dad,

Sounds like things are going well. My mind is very scatter brained right now.  Thanks for all of the love and support!
Well for me life is going very well. I'm still busy which is really good! If I were to have any free time, I would fill it instantly with something productive to do! It is causing the time to fly by though... But I have come to realize that this far on mission, whether I am doing nothing or really busy doing stuff, the time still flies by at the same pace! SUPER FAST!!!! But I am loving it! And If the time is oging to fly by super fast no matter what I do, I may aswell get the most out of it as possible!

My companion and I are working well together and getting stuff done in the area! We have a baptism set for the 30th of this month, and a couple others on the way. Actually like 5 mins ago, an investigator we are teaching (father of a family) was just in the Email shop and said hi! The work is going very well and the Zone is doing very well also.

This past week Elder Mukongoro and I had to drive the 2.5 hrs down to East London to attend a Zone Leader Skype Call with all of the Zone Leaders in the Mission as well as the Mission President to discuss some trainings and some issues with the mission. I really enjoyed it and this week my companion and I will be sharing all of that with our zone.

The weather is starting to get colder. It's been really windy the past few days and dry. My skin is starting to get itchy around my knuckles. It reminds me of home! Don't worry mom I have some lotion. I think today we are going to be heading to another animal reserve that is close by, so I should have some cool pictures from that. We are also focusing on working with members and so far we have been able to have a family home evening with a different family each week. I love it here!

Just a quick comment. One of my most favorite things to see happen is when we are teaching a person, and something we say or a principle of the Gospel we share all of a sudden makes sense and they know it's true and it's as if a lightbulb turns on in their heads! I love that! It makes me so happy! What makes me even more happy is when I see that person act upon that knowledge that they have just gained, and actually do something positive about it! That's what I thrive off of! That's what the Gospel is all about! Mission ROCKS!!!! I love it too much!

Well I don't have much time, but thank you for all of the support and love you are constantly sending my way, as well as prayers! They are much appreciated!
