Elder Truscott at a Lion Park in Paarl, SA


Well this week....it was a long and tiring one. I am so exhausted I don’t even know why.
But this morning we went up towards Paarl where there is a lion park. It wasn’t as cool as the ones in the Eastern Cape, but it was a good time, and I was able to get some good pics for Carley with me and Flat Carley with lions and stuff. haha. And there was also a chimp part where they had a few chimps. It was a fun time, and made for some good pics, but some cool videos I'll have to show you guys as well!
Most of this week was just basic missionary work. Nothing too exciting happened the 2nd week of this transfer honestly. We did lots of driving for things in the zone, but when we weren’t doing that we were trying to teach and find people!
We have zone training tomorrow, and one of the things we are going to talk about it using the Book of Mormon, so we asked everyone to specifically try to find and teach with it. So we were doing that this week, and we found a few people...lots of them live outside our area, but hopefully good things come of it! I guess that is what you get when you find in the main town of Bellville, people come from everywhere. But it was an alright week of proselyting and working, I can’t complain!
The coolest part of this week was that Sam passed her baptismal interview yesterday after church! She has been progressing so fast, and we set the goal of the 28th with her. Then we weren’t sure if she was at church cause we didn’t see her, so we thought we may have to push it back a bit and talk to her, but she was there! Super excited and wanting to be baptized! So they announced it in sacrament, and then the interview was straight after church and she did well, so it looks like next week Sam will be baptized! That is exciting for her! She's super smart and it will be great for her! She also sent me an amazing SMS thanking me for introducing God to her life. It was pretty nice :)
Besides her, we had her cousin Ntomethembu, and Andisiwe's sister Aphiwe at church. So we had 3 people we're teaching. We were actually expecting more, but next week should be good as Sam will be getting baptized and we are going to try to invite lots of people to join us for that!
The work is coming along here in Bellville. We are teaching some sweet people, like a guy named Simba who is starting to read the Book of Mormon, Aphiwe and Ntombethembu, and Patricia, whose husband is a member. But we are filtering through people....it’s a process as always! But it’s been good.
We have zone training tomorrow, then I’ll be on exchanges with Milnerton on Wednesday, and then with the Assistants Saturday, and then the baptism Sunday....so hopefully it makes time go by quick!
Crazy to think that I will only email a few more times before I get to talk to you face to face...I can’t wait.
Love,
Elder Truscott
