March 18. 2013

Happy St. Patrick's Day yesterday. I don't think they celebrate it here in Botswana, but it's probably a good thing, because the people would just have another excuse to get hammered. And the people are already crazy sometimes even without the added alcohol. 
Church is really hard to get through here sometimes. Some of the members here are just so used to Preachers ranting at the front of congregations that it confuses them as to how the church is actually supposed to be. It's just because the church is still so new here. We finally heard the new mission president's name, but I forgot it, so sorry. You can probably look it up though.
This week was pretty hectic. We spent 3 days in Gaborone working on immigration and having President's interviews and a zone conference. I feel like we haven't spent like any time in our own area. The time we have spent here was pretty awesome though. There's this family named Mpho and Phemo with their son Kevin that is going to get baptized next month that we're working with. They're pretty awesome. We just have to start the ridiculously long marriage process with them now, but they have both decided that is what is best for their family and so it should go pretty smoothly.
Life with Elder Fraga is pretty awesome. Having a companion that you like makes everything in life so much easier. And having a greenie in the flat to beat up helps too.
I love and miss you all.
Elder Balmforth
