April 2.2013

How are you? Good? Good. Life has been just normal here in Botswana. A lot of drunk people, a lot of naked people, and a lot of false prophets.
Easter here is quite a bit different than it is back home. I've never seen so many people celebrate the atoning sacrifice of the Savior by getting wasted. A part of me just thinks that that isn't the way He wants it done. Just saying though. All of the churches have been doing a bunch of "Miracle Crusades" in celebration of the Easter holiday as well. People just don't seem to grasp what the gift of tongues really is or why vomiting a puppy isn't a miracle (Not one that comes from God anyway).
During most of the holidays here, people leave and go to their home villages so as far as teaching went this week, it was slow. We did go to a zone meeting in Kanye this week. My zone leader insisted that we take a ridiculously long taxi ride to save k's on the car, but after an hour and a half of waiting for the taxi to show up, we drove anyway. It made me happy that my aspiring zone leader didn't get his way.
Anyway, on a more Christlike note, I'm on the last chapter of the Book of Mormon again. I love that book. My goal is to one day be able to say that I've read it scores of times. It's taken me a long time to read it this time because I was reading all of the commentary in the student manual along side it. Next time I think I'm going to read it quite a bit faster. I understand more and more everytime. Read it, it'll blow your mind. I love you all. 
Elder Balmforth out!
