This week was really cool. We got more lessons than we have ever gotten here in a week. We taught a bunch of first lessons. This one woman we taught while I was on my exchange with Meng told us that she studied our church in South Africa and went to church for about 8 months. But really she just didn't understand anything. She was completely against our church in the beginning. We talked a lot about Joseph Smith and she listened and really seemed to understand what we were saying. I asked her in the beginning if we could come back and she said "no". And then at the end I asked again and she said we can repass on Sunday. So we did that and talked about the Book of Mormon. It was really cool. So she's a new ami.

We had a lesson with Chris (the guy that brings a bazillion questions with him and is AWESOME); Baptismal date!!! But yeah, so right now we have 2 dates for the 28th but we might have to be moving them both back if they don't come to church. We shall see. Also Jenny the Russian told us HE'S MOVING! That's too bad, but we're just going to keep helping him progress and hopefully we can help him get in contact with the missionaries wherever he goes.
We also had a lesson with Monsieur Tshibwabwa. Try saying that please. He was cool and it was easy to talk to him because he really wanted to know why we were there. So basically I just told him we want him to get baptized and explained the WHOLE first lesson. He seemed relatively okay with that so we have another lesson with him next week. But he reminded me a bit of a Temoigne because he was really concentrated on why we believe that God has a body. I started with some bible scriptures but he was convinced of nothing. Then I talked about Joseph Smith and how he saw God and I think that helped him understand it. So we'll see where that goes.
And we had a bunch of other lessons I can't remember that well. This is the first week where I can honestly say I had to tell people we were booked and couldn't teach them. Never thought that day would come. So glad it did though. Hopefully next week will be better. Next week we have Zone Conference and I have like 3 exchanges. Yesterday and today me and Meng have been on exchanges. Then I have one with Eldredge from Chartes and then another with Christiansen. That means 5 days without being companions with my companion haha. So weirrrdd! That's it. Talk to y'all next week. Byee
