|Exchanges with Sister Hopkins! (Ignore the pants...we were driving home toooo late haha)|
Mai Wayne-We were visiting a LA but when we arrived at her home, she hadn't come back from school yet. However, her sister, Mai Wayne, was there and so we asked if we could teach her until we got home. As we discussed about the gospel and the Restoration, there was a huge smile on her face. As the lesson was about to close, she asked us if she could be baptized! I asked her if the missionaries had ever tried to teach her before to which she replied no. She told us that they were always there for her sister, and so she had never been taught. As a single mother, I can tell she has struggled through parts of her life and even I am at fault of this, but sometimes we'll tend to forget about the other people in the room and just focus on the one investigator we're teaching. Mai Wayne came to church yesterday and enjoyed it so very much!

Sister Katsande-I love her so much! This past week, we were able to start teaching her about the Restoration and as we were teaching, she opened up to us about some tragedies that had happened in her life. It made her question how much God actually loved her and why he would allow for things like that to happen. But as we studied scriptures in the Bible and Book of Mormon, she told as she finally felt at peace with what had happened in the past. Her husband is currently in South Africa right now, but once he comes back, I'm sure they will get married and then she can get baptized!

Blessing- Golden Investigator right here. He's come to church twice now this past week we were able to go visit him in Whitecliff South. We got to know him and he expressed his desire to go on a mission. He told us that he knew Tapiwa was preparing to serve one, and since they're friends, he wanted to serve the Lord and follow the example of his friend. Five minutes into the lesson--"So when can I be baptized?!" This one was soo prepared. Also, this one claims he's faster than Usain Bolt. Just for fun, I challenged him for a race haha..to bad I'll be leaving for Gweru though!
