Hey Family and Friends,
This week has been great. You asked for updates on our investigators so here you go. David and Patrick (father and son) are funny people. They are great and progressing well. They should be baptized on March 8th. Hope is a very sweet lady. She is like the most BEAUTIFUL Malawian I have ever seen. She is gorgeous with a very light complexion! Beautiful lady!!!!! She’s been to church twice and LOVES it. She is pretty wealthy and educated! She reminds me of myself. Kind of talkative and friendly but likes her alone time, too. Nancy is another investigator and such a great lady. She speaks English and is also very light in complexion. Beautiful!! We committed her to the law of chastity and she laughed hahaha and then she did the same thing when we talked about the word of wisdom. She is very shy but sweet. Hopefully she’ll be baptized the 8th. I have faith. :)
We are teaching a lot and many are progressing. It’s hard to narrow down who to tell you about. I just hope they all make it to the waters of baptism. This branch is funny. Everyone progresses but doesn't quite make it to the waters of baptism. In my previous branch, if someone progressed they made it to the waters of baptism but not many progressed. I love this Kalambo branch. The Branch president trusts us a ton. He always calls us in and asks us for advice on who he should call to be the leaders in the church. Our branch is huge and should split soon!! We always have to grab more chairs because Sacrament Meeting is full and people are still showing up. It’s a blessing. The branch was organized just a year ago and I am pretty sure that at least 20% of the people that show up are investigators. We usually have about 15 investigators at church and the Elders have some too! There are about 120 people at church every week. There are four missionary companionships assigned to our branch. It’s a blessing to be a part of this branch!!!!! It’s a branch of miracles, and sometimes I forget to count the miracles because there are so many. I hope I never take one day for granted!!!!!
I Love you all!!!!!!!!!!
Keep being consecrated and go to the temple.
