Last 2 weeks of emails!

wow things sound awesome back home!!
k it's the moment we've all been waiting for.... the mission scripture!!!!!
ETHER 12:27
hope your pleased! i love this one!
well here is an update on the work.
We currently have like 5 pretty decent investigators! we usually teach lessons everyday. some people are more interested than others!
right now we are teaching this guy named petros who is freaking awesome!! he's a swazi-man! but just to fill you in he already has a testimony of joseph smith and we've only got through lesson 1! crazy. But here is an example of the questions we get from him. " So, i know that jesus died and rose on the third day, but where was he in between that time?!?!" I about peed my pants when he asked that!! I told him we will have that answer for that next lesson. the plan of salvation lesson will rock! anyways.... that's just one investigator and i'll continue filling you in on others over the next few weeks!
Anyways the work here is awesome!! unfortunately i don't have too much time to write because i have to be in jo burg in about 5 hoursm so we are on a limited schedule! anyways i'm soo pumped for my next niece/nephew if it's a boy, "Thabo" haha jk that's my favorite african name. it means happy. by the way here is a quick lesson in zulu for you all:
whats up? Kanjanyi?

anyways i have a bit of sad news, the camera broke. I was tracting in the rain and forgot it was in my backpack, it got soaked and doesn't work very well anymore. But don't worry my memory card still works and i think there is a cheap camera on sale at a nearby store that i might pick up! Btw, yesterday we got caught in a hailstorm and got pelted by hailstones the size of marbles, it was crazy i thought i was going to die. Aside from that life is awesome the work is great!! its seriously so freaking amazing!

Anyways have a great week and keep filling me in on how life is and all that great stuff!!

Awesome things sound great back home! And i want to let you know things are great back here as well. Yesterday after church we tracted in just about non-stop rain for 5 hours, it was.....great. haha
It's a shame about the bears. But congrats to the dolphins and chargers. not to the falcons though, because.... well they are the falcons. but ya things are bomb here in south africa, the work is tough these days seeings that everyone is outta town! We had about 7 people in the chapel 5 minutes before sacrament meeting started luckily more people came so we finished with like 30 by the time sunday school started!
David, no monkeys but don't worry i set my body clock 5 minutes fast, so im always one step ahead of everyone else here.
you love me best, and nooo dinners!! it's alright though because when it does happen it will be even better.
I think today for p-day we are driving out to go see some awesome waterfalls. so that that should be epic.
Next week at this time i'll be on my way to jo'berg so that's excited we get to hear from a general authority! i cant remember his name but its gonna be good!!
Welp unfortunately there is not too much to tell you about seeings that we just talk a few days ago but, i cant wait to hear from you all next week, let me know how new years goes!

love you all very much!
