Mixed Signals

Hey guys,

So to start off my email before I forget I want to tell you about a pretty funny story. Last night in our area we were heading back to our car when some little kids saw us. There were about 5 of them and they were not older than the age of 3. All of them looked a little bit scared of me, so I made a scary face and put my arms out like I’m the cookie monster going to eat them. All of them ran away except for one. She just looked at me, smiled, then ran straight for a gigantic hug hahaha. Whoops! She thought I was giving out hugs that night, super cute. Then the other kids saw how cool I was and we got in a huge group hug in the middle of the street. It kinda just reminded me of Monsters Inc. for a sec haha. I felt like Sullivan. Priceless.

It was a slow week for sure. Not a lot happening in the area. We’re still working with a lot of different couples and individuals. Yesterday was interesting though. Except for the fact that I got tackled by a bunch of kids, after church we taught a pastor, then an apostle hahaha. Yeah did I tell you? We’re teaching an apostle. Both seem to be a little hardhearted, but always willing to learn more and seek for the truth. I don’t like wasting my time, but it’s nice to have  a bit of a challenge sometimes. Both the Pastor and the apostle expressed to us they seek for the truth. Wherever it may be, if God reveals that it’s in our church, then they will follow.

Well it was kind of a boring week except for Easter. I can tell you of an experience that I told Mom about. I’ll just copy and paste haha. Well Easter was in full swing here in ‘babwe. It’s a massive holiday for the whole country. It’s really quite something actually, I;ll tell you. On Friday it was Easter Friday right? When Jesus was crucified. Friday morning as we head to our area, on the main road we see what looks like a mob of people. There was police and everything. It turns out it was just a Jesus March celebrating the death of the Savior. At the front of the group of people there was a man holding a massive cross on his back haha. It’s so funny how literal people can take scriptures here. In John 2:6 it says  “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” I’m guessing that was the purpose of their march haha.

Another cool thing happened actually. About 4 weeks ago we ran in to a guy named Tichauna. He’s the older brother to a former investigator, works at the main shops, and is about 20 years old. 4 weeks ago we got in to a great discussion with him as he wanted to know more about the church. We got in to a 45 minute lesson and it went great! We then asked him where he lives and he stays in the other Elder’s boundaries! Aww, “Oh well it’s the same church” is what I thought. We handed him over to the other guys and he progressed so fast! He came to church 3 times and was baptized yesterday. I felt so privileged to be a part of all that. He was just sooo prepared. He’s actually a renowned rapper in Kadoma and everyone knows him as TPM (don’t ask me what that means). Every time we pass his shop we say hello, and I’m just reminded of how the Lord really is preparing people for us in the world. We just have to do our part and reach out. I’ll put a picture below.
Well that was my week, not too exciting, but I hope it suffices.
Much love,
Elder Robison
