Here's an investigator named Shadow. He's always willing to do epic photo shoots with us. He's currently preparing to be baptized on November 20th! We always get a kick out of reading the 'Incwadi kaMormoni" aka the Book of Mormon in Zulu. We're both getting to read it pretty fluently, since it's so close to siSwathi.
This is one of my favorites, taken by Shadow himself! I feel like this is such a symbolic photo as I'm overlooking the beginning of Lekazi, the main part of KaNyamazane. In my hand I clutch 'Incwadi kaMormoni', otherwise known as the Book of Mormon, translated into Zulu. Being a missionary in this land of many colors is such a privilege. As I stand as a witness of Christ, I stand on a sure foundation of Jesus Christ himself. This photo plucks my heart strings kakhulu!
Yes, ladies and gentleman, what we are eating here is COW TONGUE!! It's actually pretty delicious, believe it or not!! I highly recommend this dish to anyone who wants a good South African dine!
Here's a candid photo with one of my good friends here in KaNyamazane, Thabang. We've been on a lot of adventures together: teaching investigators, music producing (funny story for another day), eating kakhulu, too many to count! He's preparing to serve in the next year, so it's exciting to see his desire grow to share the gospel!
Another with Thabang!
Another one of my favorites! This is Peter's family that he lives with. I love the dynamic nature of the photo, with the kids playing my violin, Elder Latu and Given checking out their selfies, Gilbert+More Blessing looking through the hymn book, and Peter doing who knows what! This is one family that will always have a place in my heart.
