helloooooooooo family! I get to talk to you all in 6 days holla! i'll be calling home atBut hey this week was a really good week!!! We had some wonderful members who were so willing to work with us, and our recent converts inviting people to sit in on their lessons!!! Zambia time... so for seattle (sorry kari), for b-town, and then i think vermont and philly are the same which is ?? and i get 90 minutes!
also one of our members literally lives at the border of the congo... super far away... but we walked out of the lesson thursday night and the stars.... so beautiful. i wanted to break out in song, "there..... out in the darknes.... a fugitive running... " but i restrained myself.Simanwes: a recent convert family who is just the best!!! They were so excited that Sister Brown had never had nshima before so they made this big feast for us on Tuesday. Seriously it took them so much work, and it was so nice of them. They have seriously become my Zambian parents:)
Brother Justin: a recent convert!!! he just got called to be in the Sunday School presidency... so we had to teach this past week... and we were pretty nervous for his to teach gospel doctrine so we had been going over to help him. We went on Saturday and he pulled out 2 pieces of paper wiht 25 questions to ask the class with answers and scriptures to back it up... almost brought tears to my eyes. I walked out that night, looked up at the stars (this sounds so cheesy) but I just realized how lucky I am to have been placed here. I know this is where I needed to be.Everything else is great!! Mercy and Linda will be getting interviewed this next Sunday!!
We are teaching the district president's grandson who thinks he knows everything... well he pretty much does. he has read the whole standard works... so more than me. (embarassing) but he is so stuck in the law of moses... and asks the deepest questions without understanding the basics... so I called him a Pharisee... oops. my bad. but good thing he wasn't offended... just a 19 year old boy.
