"And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."

Working Hard

Akory abe! This week Elder Tshuma and I just worked so hard and had a great time this past week, can't wait to tell you all about it.

Monday: We had a great time going to the office, playing some basketball, and walking around a bit during the day then that night we met with a person that we had contacted a few days before and he was actually home! Lots of times people that you contact on the street are not home, even if you set up an appointment with them. But we did get to meet with him, his name is Olivie, and it was an interesting discussion, we will see how it goes.

On Wednesday we had a great lesson with Thierry (not sure if I have mentioned him before) but he is doing ok. He is always so quiet during the lesson but when we had this last lesson he told us that "yes, I believe that what you are teaching is true" "Yes, I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet" and we also learned that he is trying to read and pray every day. He is progressing, I truly believe that he is, but it is coming along slowly. Hopefully this week we can find out what will help him the most. Then for pretty much the rest of the day we did contacting, gotta love it, and found some potentially awesome people to teach.

Thursday was awesome, we contacted pretty much all day but we regularly found lessons with new people that are amazing. For example we found this older man named James. We didn't really teach a regular lesson but ended up talking and discussing that he had; what we believed in, why do we believe in that, can you explain this, the importance of this and that, the man was just full of questions and I hope that we were able to answer them well. Honestly it was a blast to have a meeting such as that, they are super fun and enjoyable.

Sunday we had a very interesting lesson in Elders Quorum about seeking for the spirit. There is just so much that goes into feeling the spirit that it has really spurred me into wanting to mearn more about the Holy Ghost and how to better go by its direction. After church we had a lesson with Solo's and Collettes son Andry and his wife Pricitte and they are just amazing. They truly listen well to the lesson and I truly believe that they understand it, it helps when your Ward Mission Leader is a returned missionary and is a baller but that is beside the point. This last Sunday Andry and his wife both came to church with Solo and Collette, it was amazing to see them.

Then later at work I was able to participate/ do the annointing for a members sick grandmother. It was just a quiet and sweet moment, it was truly a joy to participate.

I think that is pretty much it for now, be amazing this week everyone!

Until next time,
Elder Nelson
