Random Miracles in Bots!

This week has been one full of random miracles;

Miracle Number One:
We went to teach a less active member who hasn't been to church in a while. We found her there with her friend who said he was just a friend, and taught a surprise restoration. He had tons of questions and said he was coming to church AND bringing the less active member with him. #twobirdswithonestone

Miracle Number Two:
We had a number of Less-Actives come to church, and some of them even bore their testimonies at church. One of the members told me, she hasn't ever heard them bear their testimonies even when they were active members. The Lord is here ladies and gentlemen. #TheLordIsHere!

Miracle Number Three:
My 'son' is fantastic. He is basically me, but from Madagascar. He loves music, plays a little piano, plays the guitar, and sings very well. It was weird hearing the branch yesterday and actually hearing my companion singing the right notes. I love him so much. He is good at English considering how long he has been studying it. His greatest strength is that he's confident, and is never afraid to share his testimony, even if it doesn't totally come out right. He is already contacting people in English, and he shares his testimony during lessons and to me all the time. I am loving training right now. #sweetcompanion

We will be watching conference in two weeks time at the church. I am excited from what I have heard so far. Apparently Elder Renlund was in the Southeast Africa Area Presidency about a year and half ago. 

We have a baptism coming at the end of this month. #prayforus

Love you all!
Loving Africa, and Botshabelo

Dirt or Snow? Which makes driving harder?

Hello everybody. This week was hectic, I almost flipped the truck...*cough cough* just exaggerating, but driving in dirt is only second to driving in snow. #exaggeration

My companion is now leaving me. I will miss Elder Masinga. My new companion is from Madagascar and doesn't speak english. Looks like I will be teaching english, training, doing missionary work, and being district leader all at the same time. Its going to be a lot of pressure, so wish me luck. #pressurebuilds

Love Elder Preator
