Karate Kid

Wonderful week in the Great Zambia Lusaka mission! Weeks just seem to fly right by! So happy to hear that Lake Powell was successful, don't worry next year i'll be laying it down on the water:)
Miracles all over the place!!
Betha: so betha is Justin Chanda's neighbor... and she would always come in and sit on our lessons but we really didn't pay too much attention to her... sorry betha. But turns out she has a really big desire to get baptized!!!! she has been comign to church and finally the YW president asked when she was getting baptized... and so she came with us to teach her and we invited her and she agreed for July 10th!!! She is 17 and just adorable.. i'll include a picture:) JOhn is also still on date for July 10th!
Esnart: once again... a person that I kinda overlooked.... but we started really teaching her, and she knows it's true. She is so powerful, and you can feel the spirit so strongly in her lessons... and she is just loving it. But we have one problem... she is the one who provides for her family, and she works on sundays.... this week we are going to talk to her about it, and hopefully she will get the courage to quit. She is married and has one son! Pray for her!
Samba Family: so we are now all very familiar with this family:) who I love somuch!! but we're still having a problem with church attendance!!! But we taught them this past week about temples and it was adorable... they really want to go so they can get sealed and Brother Samba even proposed again to Sister Samba to be married for the next life.. haha he calls her honey pie all the time... adorable. But for the first time ever in his closing prayer during the lesson Brother Samba prayed to see if Joseph Smith was the only true prophet, and if the Book of Mormon was true. and I felt the spirit so strong, so i'm hoping they did too. and then after he told me that whenever we are gone, they discuss it as a family, and he really wants to know. Miracles!
Once again we had a new comer show up to church this week! I guess he once heard MOTAB and he has seen the church but has nevercome before... but he finally came and he was really digging it! His name is Musonda!! We'll see what happens with him:) MOTAB CHANGES LIVES PEOPLE.
Update: So the stolen computers were found!! In a whole outside the church... hahahahahaha whoever tried to steal it... bless their hearts the plan didn't go too well.
President Erickson: President and Sister ERickson came up for their last time to the Copperbelt and we had a really good devotional with the members on vision. and how to make this into a stake one day.... We talked mainly about callings and giving every member the opportunity to have a calling... which will strenghten the members and keep them active!!!! Something that definitely struggles a little bit in this mission!! But I definitely had to hold back the tears... i'm going to miss them a lot, but i'm excited for President and Sister Kupu to come next week!! They are going to bring some great things into the mission! 

funny stories:
1. so we show up at our investigators house... to find him doing this crazy karate stuff and he didn't see us walk in, and so we just watched him laughing our heads off for like 5 minutes... and then he ended up teaching us some karate... you'll see a video one day:) 
2. So on Tuesday we go over to Elisha and Tina's place and i was asking how old their daughter was and they were like, "she turned 4 today.. but don't tell her... we don't have money to give her a birthday party" hahaha they didn't even tell her that it was her birthday... and so we promised to bring a cake, adn when we brought a cake 2 days later we asked if they had told her yet... nope... so we had to tell this 4 year old girl that it was her birthday.. haha she was so confused!!
