Sister Arok and I tried singing again at the baptism but right when we started singing John Phiri was fast asleep and we just lost it....she's been making me laugh a lot this week but we really have been filled with so much Joy serving together in the Lord's vineyard! Here it goes....
We carried water a couple times this week and no joke....its way easier to carry it on our heads!
Family Home Evening at the Chirwas
MAIZE MILL with Susan
That evening we met with Janet who is Susan's neighbor. She is 19 years old and is such a solid investigator. The only problem is that her father won't let her come to church and is very active in the CCAP church.We read with her 1 Nephi 3:7 and then committed her to pray that her father's heart would be softened. Sister Arok and I went home and prayed for her as well and the very next day we saw Janet and she came running up to us to tell us that her father said she could come to church!!!!!
In the afternoon we got a call from President Kupu....we both just stopped dead in our tracks. The mission president never calls but he ended up inviting us to dinner with him and Sister Kupu. WE GOT T-BONE STEAK. We still haven't stopped talking about that dinner. Anyways it was a really special experience for Sister Arok and I to be with President and Sister Kupu. They are the most humble and inspiring people I know. I am SO grateful for the love that they extend to us missionaries and how concerned they are that we are striving to truly know our leader, Jesus Christ.

The one and only John Phiri
Sooo many incredible experience happened this past week. We arent' sure what is going to happen with transfers this week but I am not really looking forward to them....I really really really love this area and my companion. We had a lot of funny moments this week as well as spiritual experiences. But with that said, I know that whatever happens will be great and will bring about needed growth in myself. Have a great week!!! Share the gospel with someone.
