March 11. 2013 Elder Fraga

ELDER FRAGA IS HERE!!! Elder Fraga is my new companion and it's awsome. I can't believe this actually happened. I did pray and fast for it though. He's like my best friend on mission, and this last week has been so much fun.
This week has been pretty slow. Especially because we only had a couple of actual working days because of all the changes that happened for transfers and it took our new companions forever to come up here from South Africa. This week will probably be the same because tomorrow we have to go down to Gaborone to get all of the immigration stuff done for the new missionaries which takes forever, then we have to go back down on Thursday and stay over night because we have interviews with the mission president one day and then a zone conference the next, so hopefully we're able to get some stuff done in the time that we have.
One night as we were checking up on one of the families we're trying to begin teaching we had to cross this little river and found a ton of these crabs and so we caught a couple of them and took them home and cooked them. We couldn't muster up the courage to eat them though since the water we found them was probably 50 percent cow manure. they do make cool decorations for the flat though, and they turn this cool orange color when you boil them.
Anyway, that's about it.
I love and miss you all.
Elder Balmforth
