Nov. 2, 2008

Hey, I am running late with my emails today, I’m almost out of time so ill tell you how my week went first and try to answer questions.

Monday was good, but busy last week. P-day got cut short by appointments, but Ihave seen the blessing because of it. Theteaches we had went great! It was a good day.

Tuesday and Wednesday were pretty normal and everything went well. We taught an older guy that is a new member. It was kind of hard to teach him because he likes to tell stories and his wife isn’t a member but she is nice. She made us some kind of weird Sandwiches... They had some kind of meat balls, sauce, and what I think were chunks of butter. They were cold because we taught before we ate, but its all good. We scarfed them down. During correlation on Tuesday we had banana bread! It was good. I told Alex (18 year old ward mission leader) That I always email home telling what his mom makes us haha. I love their family.

Thursday went by fast. We had Zone Meetings in Wansworth. It went really well and I learned loads. That took all day, but it was good. We have a huge zone now because they combined WW (Wansworth) east and WW West. The missionaries are really cool, I love working with them.

Friday and Saturday were very similar. Both days most of our teaches cancelled except for one. Friday we taught Mary and Saturday we taught Sujana. They are both amazing and the teaches went great. They have strong Testimonies and are looking forward to their combined baptism on the 15th (maybe 16th). I am so excited for them and can’t wait for the baptism.

Sunday was just the icing on the cake with our baptismal dates. It was Mary's first time to church and she bore her testimony!! She is so cool and has a really strong testimony. When we taught her the word of Wisdom she said she was excited to go home and teach her family haha. We ended up being late to our first teach after church, but it still went amazing, and although it was our first time at their house and basically our first time talking to them, they fed us some amazing African food. The lesson went good as well :) We also got fed by a member right after that haha. We didn’t know it was going to work out that way. We were wayyy too full. I guess that’s what we get. We haven’t been getting dinner appointments lately so we have been trying to work that out. I think our Heavenly Father has a sense of humor and decided if we wanted food, He'd give it to us.

Today is another hectic P-Day. We had a meeting this morning and a teach that cuts our day short again, but after seeing the blessings that came from it last week, it’s not a problem at all. I love missionary work and know that it is the Lord’s. He has His hand in everything that we do. I am so grateful for a living prophet and the Book of Mormon.

Well that was my week. I hope yours went well, it sounds like it did. I love you and hope you all have a good week.

Love Elder Karges

Hey Lovely lady...
could you add Elder Karges's address to the blog? That we don't have to call everytime we write a letter....not that it is often, but on occasion, we may be diligent!
