"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."

I played ball and Elder Tshuma got to go prevent himself from being deported

So once again the letter comes on Tuesday and for a very random reason. Monday, four elders just going around on a normal pday when suddenly a random phone call appears. It is Elder Ahlstrom in the office. He then relays a message of great importance " you elders need to get to the office right now, there are papers that Elder Tshuma needs to sign and if he doesn't he will be deported". Well that sorta shot those elders plans for the day as Elder Tshuma was gone a very long time. But President Foote was very kind and gave permission for them to finish their pday preparations on tuesday.

Hey everyone, as you can see above we had abit of a scare with Elder Tshuma but everything is great now and he is not getting deported, Ya! But here we go with the rest of our week.

Monday we did some service for a family here in Itaosy izany hoe: we helped them move houses. But the catch is that they don't have moving trucks but hand pulled carts with furniture and the like stacked on top and we had a great time pushing it up a decently sized hill. That thing was just so heavy and I was just so exhausted at the end but all of the stuff got there alright. But now I have a greater appriciation for all of those people that do that all day everyday for their job, it is very difficult and they do it for little pay.

Tuesday we ended up doing some contacting and found some potential new investigators named Fidy, Joce, and Michelle. It was a pretty good lesson and it felt guided by the spirit, it was super fun and enjoyable. They had some questions that we answered for them and I think that they also enjoyed the lesson but they are Catholic and it is a big "no no" to switch faiths but we will see.

Wednesday was spent mostly tracting and meeting with members. I have actually been wanting to be having more meetings with members to 1. Get to know them better, 2. Help them be stronger in the church, ands 3. Hopefully get a referal/ help them begin looking to people to refer to us

Thursday Elder Tshuma got sick, he felt like throwing up all day. Luckily I was still able to go out with Elder Ralaivao to give Rasolo and Colette their baptismal interviews and they both passed! They will be baptised this up coming Saturday, August 22. After that we went home and I studied and hung around while Elder Tshuma slept.

Then honestly the rest of the week was spent trying to contact and visit with members, so not much to say about that. Have a great week everyone, mirary soa!

Elder Nelson
