Hello friends and family!!
I hope you're doing well. I'm doing great! This past week was much better for us in Molepolole. We were able to find a couple young families and one of the couples came to church! Their names are Meshack and Boitumelo. Even though the wife, Boitumelo, struggles with English she still wanted to be there. They really loved church and they had even attended a self reliance activity the day before. I'm so excited about them! And the ward was so welcoming! They were with the members chatting and joking and we didn't even have to introduce them, we literally just watched!
Molepolole is beginning to get there. We also have sister Suku who is about to be baptized. She's doing great and is answering questions in class as if she's been in the church for a while. She's loving how much she's growing and learning and so am I!!
Life has been good and there's no complaints. I've really seen and realized that this gospel is all about change. They say God is unchanging but his plan for us, his children, is all about change. The word "repentance" means to change. I know now that God doesn't want us to just change our actions or behavior but our very nature. It's only after we change our nature that we'll see happiness, true happiness, otherwise known as joy.
In the words of the Prophet Nephi, "O how great the plan of our God!" (2 Nephi 9:13)
Best to you all!
