It’s back to Shona title lines because it totally sums up all of last week. Hapana means “nothing” haha. On Monday we drove to Harare and spent P-day there. Tuesday was zone conference, Wednesday was exchanges with the AP’s in their area, Thursday was interviews with President, Friday was interviews for the zone. Saturday was like the only normal day, but it was pretty dismal. On Sunday it wasn’t exciting to see it so empty! Not more than 30 came to church which was weird. I think it’s because we didn’t go to the are like all week haha. People need us! I guess it’s normal though. That’s missionary work! The ups and downs are all a part of the path to perfection. Sometimes God gives us weakness’s so that we can be humble and learn to put our trust in Him (Ether 12:27).
I know it’s boring since last week was so exciting, but quite honestly that was our whole week. I guess one cool thing is I went on exchanges on Friday with Elder Lin. He’s from Taiwan and can make LEGIT Chinese food. He was so happy when we told him about a Chinese mall in Harare. He brings dumplings to every District meeting. He’s always got a smile, and a joke to tell so he’s a lot of fun to be around. It was also fun walking around the China mall with him because I couldn’t read any of the label’s so I was always like “what’s this?” and then he’s like “that’s wasabi” or something like that haha. I took a picture, so I’ll send it at the end of the email.
Many of you know I’m currently training a new zone leader right now named Elder Silotile. Awesome guy, he’s seriously just a great companion. We love to have discussions on how we can help each other and it always turns in to real bonding moments. He always boasts that he’s going to be the one to kill me (be my last companion), but we’ll see, got one transfer left. Why would I leave though, that’d be lame. I’m loving this place. We’re really doing our best to help the zone out wherever we can.
I’m actually emailing you in Harare right now, for which looks like my 2nd to last MLC meeting. I’m also looking forward to my last zone conference.
I’m always so anxious to get out there everyday and see what the Lord has in store for me, I know that I’m here for a reason. Most of all He sent me here to be Elder Robison, no body else. I love that. I’ve always tried so hard to be myself wherever I’m serving, because that’s just who the Lord needs.
