WEEK 79 Loholona Ellis-Transfer staying-We won soccer-7 baptisms!

Another great one this week! So this week was a little hectic due to transfers. This Tuesday and Wednesday Elder Lingani said goodbye to some of our members and investigators. Then on Thursday I went on splits with Elder Shoemaker. We went and worked in his area but it is still in my branch since our branch is split with 4 Elders. On Friday we had a mission conference with Elder Ellis! He came and gave us a great lesson. He talked about how God is a God of miracles. How we need to trust in his power and push the work even harder and find those Golden Families. That night I went to another area and did a Baptismal interview for some other elders.

Saturday came around and it was the first day with my new comp, Elder Tshetu. He is also from South Africa. He is awesome and we have been getting along great. Turns out we were both into a lot of the same things from before the mission and we both have a great desire for the work so needless to say we get along. So Saturday we had an awesome English lesson with our class and then later we attended the baptisms for our branch. 7 baptisms! It was great and everything went smooth. At night we went out to work. We visited Mamy and went over the baptism interview with him but sadly he didn't come to church this Sunday so we will postpone his baptism for the 25th probably where he can get baptized with our other amazing family which we taught that night. We taught them the Law of Chastity and luckily they are already married by the law. But they saw the great importance of the lesson and really enjoyed it. Our awesome member help was hilarious. He went a little too in detail about his temptations before his baptism but it made for a good lesson haha. Then they came on Sunday and they brought all of their kids! Great time! 

Today we went and played soccer and yes the missionaries took it today. We beat the Antananarivo Ward 2-1 today. So there's another one for the Elders.

Sorry but no pics this week. Card got wiped this last week so we will be recovering that this week hopefully.

Everyone have a great week!
