Hello to you all.
So this past week was interesting. We had transfers and it didn't go according to plan. The guys leaving left Monday evening and the guys coming in were supposed to come Tuesday evening, but they didn't. We got news on Tuesday that they wouldn't be coming until Thursday because Tuesday was a public holiday. It was Namibia's Independence Day, but I'll tell you this, Namibia can't even compete with the 4th of July. Sorry Namibia.
So on Tuesday we had all the Namibia elders go and play soccer with the Windhoek District (The members and their friends). It was really fun! The remainder of the week was hectic though. We didn't get a chance to visit many people but we had some fun. On Friday we had a combined District Meeting with the Swakopmund elders and I got to see some old companions, Elder Saiah and Elder Malemo. Elder Saiah is serving in Swakopmund and Elder Malemo is serving in Windhoek. It was cool to see them again.
On Saturday we had a lot of fun. We went hiking for a priesthood combined activity in the morning. We just went to the same "mountain" we went to last time, but it was fun to be with all the elders. After that we had a braai (bar-b-que) and then went to see Jake.
I can't remember if I told you about Jake, but he's a cool guy. He's from Angola and just here schooling. He's beginning to grow a greater interest in the Book of Mormon and I hope he continues to progress. Then Saturday Evening we had a going away party for The Kashihakumwa Family who are moving to Rexburg, Idaho so Brother Kashihakumwa can further his schooling. He was in the District Presidency and he will be missed. I'll get to visit him though!
So yeah, an eventful week for sure. I hope you all have a great week!

While we were hiking, some older guys were climbing the hill as well... But in vehicles! It was pretty cool!
