Life

Hey guys,

Life is good! Real good! Everything just seems to be good right now. I
don’t know, I mean I just feel very content, healthy, and happy. The
Lord continues to pour out his blessings upon us and we find new
people to teach everyday. We found 2 more pastors! Ugh, I’m seriously
getting so tired of these bible pastors who think they know
everything. They take up so much of our time. We don’t even really
argue. We just go through our message and then he just starts
interrupting to tell us we’re wrong because he thinks otherwise. It’s
difficult, but kind of funny at the same time. Like obviously they’re
wrong and I have scriptures to prove it but we just listen. One of
them after the lesson thought i was mad at him and he got scared
because of my size haha. Just last night one of them walked in the
room as we we’re teaching one of our investigators. After our lengthy
discussion he told Elder Billings that he saw him in a vision! He said
just the other night he dreamed he saw Elder Billings. He said in the
dream he saw Elder Billings was sick, and he went on to explain some
pretty weird things. After explaining his vision he said he was
worried for us and our well being, and tried to convince us that we
were in trouble….. Pfff hahahahaha. We don’t know what it means, but
I guess we’ll find out.

So yesterday we actually had a baptism! One of our investigators named
Charles. He’s a stud and was so prepared for that day. He plays
soccer, he dances, he writes music. So talented and so cool. He has
dreads too! My whole mission I’ve always wanted to baptize someone
with dreads haha. It was a great baptismal service and he was very
happy to finally make it this far. We’ve been working with him for a
long time so we were both so happy for his accomplishments.

Well some pretty exciting things are happening in our zone. Mbizo Ward
is getting split soon, Kadoma is getting a new branch in town, and
Chegutu will split before the end of June! The work here is really
moving! Our zone members are working so hard to reach their goals, and
people seem to almost literally be flocking. Last week at zone
conference we were commended for our efforts by the Stake President in
Gweru. Miracles really do happen. My joy can best be described from
the Book of Mormon. In Helaman 6:3 it says…

Nevertheless, the people of the church did have great joy because of
the conversion of the Lamanites, yea, because of the church of God,
which had been established among them. And they did fellowship one
with another, and did rejoice one with another, and did have great
joy.

Today we’re going to Harare for MLC. My 15th since I’ve been on a
mission. I’m finding such joy and peace in my work. It’s literally the
most satisfying thing I’ve ever taken part in. Definitely something to
be remembered.

Much love,
Elder Robison
