Elder Truscott with Sibu's sister Sihle Sinama


Elder Truscott proving he received his package
Another week down here in Grahamstown! Nothing too exciting. It was just a normal week, no exchanges or anything like that, just me and Ramosoeu. We just sat with our normal people and actually found a few new people to teach.

We saw the Sinama's like 3 times this week. Once with the mom and the other times just the kids, but the mom still wanted us to come and be with them. So we didn't really know what to do on Wednesday when we saw them because the mom was gone and we didn't want to teach anything new without her. We decided to just review the restoration. Well we were going through the beginning and I could see that they were super competitive about the answers and stuff, so I decided to make it a review game and whoever had their hand up first and answered got a point, you know? Well it was super fun and they really enjoyed it, so I thought that was a cool way to do that! When we sat with them again and the mom was there, on Friday, we asked if they had been praying about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Book of Mormon, and Joseph Smith. The middle daughter, Kuhle, said she "knows it's true" and just said that she "just does"....and the mom was funny. She was saying that she believes it's true because since we've been coming good things have been happening to her :)

On Thursday we were going to go see Emerald, and when we got there her car wasn't there. We decided to just go and knock a door or two while we wait, and the first house we walk up to, right across the street, invites us in, and it's this lady named Olwethu. She's just a younger lady and turns out that she had been sitting with missionaries a bit ago, like a few years, and she is super cool. So we have had an appointment with her, but we just talked the whole time, so it will be interesting what happens when we start to teach her!
Then we went back and saw Emerald. She is still going through a tough time, so sometimes when we get there she just says "let's just talk" and she doesn't want to talk about the lessons or anything, she just wants us to talk to her.

Saturday there was a HUGE storm here in GT. Like it was raining super hard, lightning and everything. We were at the Sinama's place, and they look after these puppies for some reason, so when the storm hit we had to go out and get them all and take them to their house. Then I guess a part of their house lets water in or something, so to help we propped up some tin thing against their door to block the wind and rain, just helping out, and when we got done we were DRENCHED. Haha, like my shoes were still kinda wet at church....haha.

For people, I've mentioned a few already, but I'd say the best investigator we have at the moment is Leticia. She keeps walking to church with her son Diego and she doesn't tell us to walk with her just in case she doesn't come, but she's come the last 3 weeks in a row! As soon as she gives up smoking she will be perfect for baptism :)

All in all it wasn't a bad week :)

Love,

Elder Truscott
