Nature Preserve / The Restoration
Last week we went to a nature preserve, and we took tons of cool pictures. We saw zebras and everything!
So I don’t know if you’ve seen on TV or anything, but there's xenophobia threats recently. Meaning the Zulu people have been going crazy about foreigners, so there's been riots and marches in Durban. There's been some deaths and the Mission President asked that we stay away from any locations where there are foreigners. They are only going after the other African people like from Zimbabwe, Uganda, Malouwi and the like. So we as missionaries aren’t in any danger, but its been pretty exciting. Everyone has been talking, and Durban apparently looked like a war zone at one point. Super Fun!
We had a baptism this week. It was the Elders QuorumPresident’s girlfriend. He taught her everything already and we just had to get there for the interview and everything. Super fun again! :)
We did teach a new family, and they said they will come to church. Hopefully that happens soon.
Love you guys! Hope everything is ok.
Also, here are a few pictures of me recreating The Restoration (Praying, First Vision, Receiving the Plates).
