December 17. 2012

So this week I found out that I'm staying in Soweto for another transfer. That means that I'll be her for 6 months. My longest area yet. I don't mind though. I really like this area most of the time. My companion makes it a lot easier. It's nice not having to do everything on your own.
Christmas this week will be awesome. I can't wait to call home. I'm pumped for it. We should have a lot of pretty cool activities this week too. Even today we're going to Carnivore restaurant where we get to eat a ton of crazy exotic meats like zebra and giraffe. It's going to be awesome.
This last week has been a good one. Not terribly eventful but we did find some more families and taught a ton of lessons and had a bunch of people at church. One of the hardest things for me to learn here, that I'm still learning is that none of my accomplishments do or can come on my own, but with the Lord's help. You hear people say that all the time, but it just goes over your head until you're forced to learn it by doing hard things I think. Or maybe that's just the case for me. We've been having a lot of success though which makes me really happy.
The only negative thing that happened this week is that there was a crazy rainstorm that came out of nowhere and we got soaked in a matter of seconds. I haven't been that wet since my first area. I had forgotten how much it sucks, but now it's fresh in my mind again.
Anyway, that's all for this week. I love and miss you all and hope you have a very merry Christmas. Treasure the time you have with family.
