Happy Holidays from Africa


Things are good here in Potch.  The holidays are starting, which is both good and bad.

Good: It's the holidays!!  It's a time for everyone to appreciate the company of family and friends, to eat some good meals, and to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Bad: all of our college students that we've been teaching are now going home for the holidays.  That, coupled with the fact that everyone here is going to be getting drunk during these next couple of weeks, is going to make for some weird and possibly dangerous experiences.  I'm excited to see what happens.

There have already been some crazy experiences this week!  We saw a big fight on a street corner in the township.  Those guys get crazy, so don't start a fight in Ikageng.  Also, we passed a Zulu celebration while driving to an appointment in the evening.  That was really cool!! I would've snapped pictures, but my camera was at the flat.

This week we had zoning in with President and Sister Dunn!! They could only stay for an hour, so we decided to go to see Carlissia, our recent convert.  That hour was powerful.  Tears were shed, testimonies were born, times were good; we came, we saw, we conquered.

The Charchenko's are officially here!! They are the new senior couple here in Potch.  Me and Elder Asay have spent a lot of our week orienting them here in Potch/Ikageng, and it's been a blast!!

Love you all.  Enjoy this holiday season everyone!!
