Wow what an incredible week. The Lord has showered us with blessings,
and we’re finding great success with new investigators. There’s this
farm called Nyanewe and it runs along the basin of a strip of small
mountains. We have some investigators there but it looks like we only
scratched the surface! We decided to hike the mountain and guess what?
People are there! My companion was like “Ah, these creatures are
everywhere!” Haha (inside joke). We actually found lot’s of former
investigators and they stopped coming to church simply because the
missionaries stopped visiting them! Well these humble people were very
prepared, and very happy to see missionaries again. Some of them came
to church on Sunday with their families so it was sweet. As we were on
top of the mountain we found breathtaking views of the valley we
cover. It’s down right beautiful out here. I kept turning to my
companion as we looked down the valley and I kept saying “Elder,
that’s our area.” It’s unreal.
With patience we’re finding success in our area, and the rebuilding of
the branch is under way! We were really soaking it all in that night
as we sat around a camp fire at a member’s house, eating possibly the
best sadza I’ve ever had. There’s an outstanding family hear called
the Gwekwe family, who I’ll tell you all about in the next email. We
really love serving and visiting them.
The Lord is preparing this place, as he has promised, “I will go
before thy face, and make the crooked path’s straight.” I believe in
miracles, and I believe they happen according to our faith. Which
means we gotta go out and look for em’!
It’s the last week in the transfer and next week I’ll be left with 12 weeks!
Well I gotta sign out now, I’m goin’ for a hike!
