May 18, 2015

Hahaha, I guess the other thing is that on Friday after district meeting we went to the mall for lunch, and Elder Pahulu has a cool leather jacket, so we all bought one. 

We went to Monkey Town this morning, 


This week was a long one here. It honest feels like ages since skyping. Ha ha. The common theme was dropped appointments..... We made up for a terrible week though with a sweet lesson Sunday and this morning's p-day.

We went to Monkey Town this morning, which is a cool place here in Cape Town that just has lots of monkeys (shocker). You can go into the cages and they will jump on you and stuff, and it was a really fun time! So that is why I’m emailing a little bit later than usual. But it was a good time. We went with Kupka and Fonua, and then Elder Wright and Elder McCarroll came with us as well. It was nice!

Tuesday last week we had MLC, which is just a big skype call that lasts a long time and we talked about stuff in the mission. After that we just went out to work, even though I was super tired.  And pretty much after that it started. Dropping like it’s hot.

People weren’t holding appointments at all this week, and we were trying hard to stay motivated and work hard...we did lots of finding in new areas, passed out lots of pamphlets, rescheduled, and made return appts with new people. We are working, it was just a tough week for us.
I really don’t have tons to say about my week....besides MLC we were working all week in Bellville. No exchanges this week.

Hahaha, I guess the other thing is that on Friday after district meeting we went to the mall for lunch, and Elder Pahulu has a cool leather jacket, so we all bought one. Ha ha ha, so now our boarding all has leather jackets, kinda funny.

Sunday church was good. We have been working with a dude named Norman. He is a really nice guy who has struggled to come to church, but he came through this week and we were super happy to see him! Besides him nobody we were really working with came. One of the things mentioned at MLC was that we should try to build relationships with members, so a few days this week Elder Prisbrey and I didn’t have anything in terms of stats, but we taught members all day....so I guess it wasn’t a total fail, it was good. Just didn’t look as good when you're reporting, but it’s not about that.
After church we had.....dropped appts. But we did have one hold and it was a great appt. Then dinner at the Krugers, which is always nice :) We are seriously hoping that this week more appts. hold and we have more success in terms of teaching non members and less actives.....I guess we needed a bad week since we've been on the steady uphill from the time I got here...haha, it was time for a bad one, but next week should be better! We start it good tonight with a braai at Bro. Hein's house! That should be tons of fun!

I love you so much and miss you like crazy!

Love,

Elder Truscott
