May 28th, 2011

Thanks family for all the emails, it took up most of my computer time reading them and trying to download the picture of Sophie (the internet here is pretty slow).
This week has been a blur, it feels like EFY on spiritual steroids (without the girls and dances of course :D) Thursday and Friday we had our first teaching experiences with "real" investigators. About 20 people from the local ward came and acted as investigators. We have been studying listening to the investigator and the spirit this week so that is what we concentrated on. It was great having someone other than a teacher or other elder to teach, it seemed more real.

On Tuesday we were able to go to the Joburg temple. We had 7 elders and sisters taking out their endowments for the first time. It was really cool since that was the first time I had ever been to a video session. I realized how much I love nature especially the ocean. I can't wait to get back and do Scuba diving and hiking!!!!!

To keep things short, I'm doing great!!! A little tired, but alive :D I hope everything is going great back home. Sorry if I couldn't reply to all the emails personally but we have such limited time on the computer it is annoying.

Included are some pictures of the temple as well as a picture of a sign that is ALL OVER THE PLACE. Africans seem to use it for universal purposes, shows where the bathroom is, exits, elevators, etc....kind of funny :)

Love you all,
keep the letters coming (don't have any yet :/)
