Week 49

This week was the busiest I have been for the last two transfers. Monday of course was transfers, and Tuesday was Pday. Wednesday we dug out a tree stump and dug some holes for some shrubs, then we helped Debbie out with a burn pile.

Thursday we helped prep a boat for storage and also kept working on the weight room that we had started for the Shoobridges. While working on the shed I smashed my finger with the hammer so it’s a little hard to type today but all goods.

Friday was DTM and service at Mandeni park, and we baked cookies (they were delicious). Haha, I am now a baker. We gave some of the cookies to a potential named Tom. He is a funny guy. He gives everyone a nickname. Then Saturday we did the 5k run and helped cut firewood and then cleaned the chapel.

Sunday was pretty normal. Daniel showed up again [to church], and we had a great lesson with him and he accepted the invitation to be baptized. We got talking to him after the lesson, and what it sounded like was he was planning on being baptized after our first lesson with him. He wants to be baptized on October 1st, the same day that Wendy gets back from her trip in England, so we are going to be inviting her to that as well.

I am still getting along great with Elder Stott. He is the man. He is awesome at teaching the gospel simply and clearly so that anyone can understand. He is awesome. He has been a blessing to this area, and he is a great example for me as a missionary.

That is all for this week. I love you all.

Love, Elder Newman

This is my finger before it started bleeding after I hit it with a hammer.

DT Meeting.. because we are so far from the others, we listen in on a conference call from the church.

Sister Shoobridge taught us to make these cookies, and they are delicious!
