May 5, 2014 Mother's day countdown

Elder Sanders and Elder Truscott at the Sinama's house for Kuhle's birthday 

Trevor with his Birthday package! Finally, only a month late thanks to SA Customs
I got quite a few packages this week mom! Thank you so much :) I finally got the birthday ones!!
Another week down here in Grahamstown! I'm still super happy about my companion. Elder Sanders and I are getting along really well and it seems really nice :)
It was a pretty average beginning of the week. Monday we had an average Grahamstown p-day of doing nothing....haha.
Tuesday was an average day, we had a few dropped appointments, but taught a few lessons before we went to the Sinama's house cause it was Kuhle's birthday :) Sanders and I bought her a cake and took it up there and they had a nice dinner and then we all had dessert :) made for a nice night!
Wednesday was slow, but Thursday was a really good one. We had 6 lessons Thursday so that was nice, we were always busy so that made for a nice day! It's so much better to be busy. Ha ha ha.
Friday we had zone meeting, so we drove down to East London for the meeting, which was fine....nothing special, just a pretty average meeting. The Boyce's, the senior couple in East London, it's their last transfer, so they told us all after the zone meeting that they were taking us all out to lunch! It was so nice of them! The whole East London and Mdantsane zones they took out to a nice lunch! So we got on the road after that and then got back to Grahamstown :)
Church on Sunday was good! It was a really nice meeting actually! Letitia was confirmed, and she said that she wanted me to do it. It's kinda cool to have them choose you to do things like that, always makes you feel good :) so I baptized her last week, and confirmed her this week :) Some of the testimonies were actually really good, and it was nice. We had some good investigators there. And one lady came named Precious, who is a really nice lady. Well she came to ours, and then invited us to go to hers! So Sunday night we went to His People Christian church with her, and it was a pretty fun time. I enjoyed it.
The people are doing good...nothing really to say other than they are how they were last week. Ha ha. Not much of a change!
But it wasn't too bad of a week, I can't complain! Just that it was pretty boring. haha.
I can't wait to chat on Sunday for Mother's Day!!
I love you guys,
Elder Truscott

  1. You are about to gain one amazing young man, eager to see what damage he can do in Cape Town South Africa. My son just opened his mission call tonight and reports on Sept 18. I welcome any/all suggestions to better prepare me, my family, and future elder!!!

    We are from Idaho but we have family in Draper! Paulsen's... Know them?
