Hello people that I love!Monday: Love P-day! We did the usual: clean, email, and shop. Played some soccer with our zone. Not going to lie started hating playing soccer. It gets to competitive and people start putting the other down which is so not cool.

Hello Family and Friends!
I don't have a lot of time today so this weekly email will be short and sweet. This week was super slow. We had a lot of fall throughs. There has been some political unrest so we had to go to the other sister's area because we only had one phone for one day. I loved their area. So humble and the people are so kind. We had interviews with President on Thursday. His advice truly was amazing. He told me that I can't rely on my trainer and I need to be an independent missionary. I have been struggling with my companion so this helped me realize that if she has problems and won't tell that I do not need to worry about it and just focus on being the Lord's servant. Bro Phiri is progressing! Hopefully he will get married soon. Crossing my fingers. I am up to a whopping 30 marriage proposals. Zimbabwean men seriously have issues. haha I love missionary work! I love Zimbabwe! So grateful for the Atonement and the strength it gives me everyday.
Have a fabulous week and try and share the gospel with someone who doesn't have it!

Monday: We cleaned so much. Our house is looking so good though. Emailed, played soccer, and shopped.
Tuesday: We had district meeting. We learned about the priesthood power and how we have a special authority as missionaries. We taught Bro Phiri about the plan & we found out he isn't legally married. So we have to postpone his baptism till his wife comes into town. We gave a guy named Fixon a tour of the church. Then we taught Tawanda a worker at Pick and Pay we see all the time. The lesson went well. We taught him about the Restoration.
Wednesday: We taught Sis Violet about the Plan of Salvation. She understands and asks amazing questions. We tried to see a ton of people but they weren't home. We saw a guy named Bro Banda. He is a cool dude. We showed us around the place he works. He works at a water plant. Then we contacted like it was going out of style.
Thursday: Weekly planning might kill me but i love it because it makes our week run smoother. We contacted a ton in town because our appts didnt show up. Then we taught Bro Phiri again about the word of wisdom. Then we contacted even more.
Friday: Crazy day. We had Zone conference. Loved it. Love seeing all the missionaries and learning different things to be a better missionary. A quote from Sis Mkhabela, "you can't enjoy what you haven't done." We taught Bro Phiri again. Love him. Then we had coordination at Bro Shava's house. I love that family. Then we came home and found out our house was robbed. Money and other things are gone. Sad but at least we are okay. We had to stay at the other sisters house. Super nasty.
Saturday: We went to the police station. It was a tent. haha We then after a while went home and then went out. We taught Bro Banda and he understood the restoration pretty well.
Sunday: Love Fast Sunday. Brings the spirt so well. Love hearing the member's testimonies. Bro Phiri came to church. Then we went to the ward's baptism after. Then we shared a mini lesson with a part member family. Then we saw Ayanda and talked about the Book of Mormon. Then us crazy sisters had so much fun just chilling and chatting.
I love Zimbabwe. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I love serving my Savior everyday. Be ALL IN always!
Love you guys!
