Dear Family, 
Good news!  Lorraine was interviewed by President and was baptized on Saturday and confirmed yesterday.  Transfers happen tomorrow.  Six  Elders flew out this morning which means I'll be one of six  missionaries in Namibia for a few days. I will be getting a new companion.   I got to drive out to the airport today and got to see some more baboons.

It has been a good week. I look forward to this coming week. We have another scheduled baptism for this Saturday. It is the Branch President's wife... He is over the moon about it too. His eldest daughter is close as well! 

As for me, I'm  fine. I have a smaller district to watch over. have a completely new district. They divided the last one so now it is only four Elders, two of which are new to Namibia.  I am gonna give it my best. I love the Lord, that's oft times my greatest source of motivation.

A Missionary of Few Words

A gecko I caught the other day. I could feel his grippy hands like duct tape. 

 We got our cars!

 Look familiar? They are a traditional food here. 

A typical breakfast for me.

 My favorite bakkie--A toyota Land Cruiser LX V8 twin cab!
Editor's Note:  A Bakkie is a utility or delivery vehicle

An AMERICAN meal!!

Dear Family, 
 We had a great week this week! Found some new investigators that seem promising and we received the cars! I am so excited to see our other family progressing and growing. I feel privileged to be a part of all of it.  And about the Book of Mormon. It was actually what I decided to do District meeting on a few weeks ago. We focus on the book of Mormon after we teach to Restoration. Simply because if they  know it to be true, everything else falls into place. It is a wonderful book. We try to give a reading assignment each visit.

Dear Family,
I have had such a good week. I have a testimony of Fasting! We had such a cool experience. An Elder lost his passport a long time ago. We all fasted that he would find it.  That evening some members they visited found it in there car! AND I was fasting for an investigator that has been having some struggles. We were finally able to meet with her and it went great! She still want to be baptized! I also went on exchanges with the Elders in my district this week and it also went great! I will send some pics. I am loving my mission right now. I have virtually no complaints. I am so happy!  I want to get more pics with people to send home. I will try to do that this week.
