Week 49 in Zimbabwe!!

Dear Family and Friends, 

This week was a crazy week in Mbizo. haha We had a lot of investigators that are so prepared but had issues that will stop their baptism at this time but it is okay we can help them better prepare for when the time comes that they are able to enter the waters of baptism. First off I would like to talk about our amazing recent convert Reward. Reward came with us to an appointment and he knows his stuff and is very good at sharing his testimony. He than told us about how he had the opportunity to give a talk this past Sunday. He wasn't nervous at all and was so honored he would get to talk about Jesus Christ's Resurrection. He did an amazing job. Reward is a great example to me of someone who truly treasures the gospel and makes it a part of their lives. We are teaching a family called the Moyos. They are progressing so well and love the gospel. The mom came to general conference and loved the talk that talked about how you should listen to the missionaries and treasure what they say. She took this to heart and loves the teachings. She comments all the time on how there is more light in her home and there is more peace. I love being able to help in the work of the Lord and bring His light to the people of Zimbabwe. Then Sister Dephine's baptism... She came to church a couple Sundays back and told us she would like to be baptized. She was taught by the missionaries before but left for holiday before she could be baptized. She was so prepared. She kept all her commitments and was so eager to enter the cold waters of baptism. She is what you could call "a golden investigator." I love being a missionary and sharing my testimony of my beloved Savior every day. 
A quote I came across the other day: 

"It is not enough, however, merely to believe in Him and His mission. We need to work and learn, search and pray, repent and improve." ~President Thomas S. Monson

I am grateful for the Easter season and how we have a reminder to think about Jesus Christ but lets not just think about Him on holidays but all the time. 

I love you all and hope you have a fantabulous week!
