The Rabie Ridge District has been hit by another 90 degree curveball: everyone except me has been transferred! I don't know what to think of the whole district being white-washed except that the Lord must have big plans for this area.
It's hard to see a brother go off to another area, especially when it's only been 6 weeks together. Elder Carr has helped me in so many ways, and I can only express my gratitude to the Lord for having him as my companion, brother, and friend this transfer.
We have two people on date for next week! Here's a little about them both:
Zozo is one of my favorite Xhosa's that I know! She's 19 years old and come from a large family of 9 that lives in a little shack no bigger than 20 ft. by 20 ft. She barely speaks any english, but what she says is either super funny or incredibly spiritual.
David is a flippin' totsi, but the best kind of totsi. He's 19 and lives with his friend in Ivory Park, a township we serve in. He loves basketball, and he's (almost) as good as I am! I'm kidding though, he's black so that automatically makes him better than me in basketball. His desire to change his life is a huge example to me. He's completely stopped drinking and smoking, and he's committed to living the Law of Chastity.
Both of these people are a huge example to me and everything that they do lifts me up and inspires me to be a more consecrated missionary.
