Moving to Richards Bay

Date:  October 3, 2016
Area:  Maseru 1, Lesotho Africa
Companion:  Elder Shinga

What an exuberant week.

Sooooo Transfers came and….. I am going to Richards Bay! (Back to the coast, area 5 on the map) Its in Northern KwaZulu-Natal. I am super excited and I will get to be able to start practicing my Zulu again,(me looking it up it says they speak Afrikaans, so we will see what he ends up speaking most) but its going to be hard to not speak seSotho with everyone I see. 

President said he wants the same flame that we have ignited here in Lesotho to also start in Richards Bay, and area known for not being liked by missionaries. I am excited though, its going to be grand.

So this week was interesting because a lot of schools were graduating so we couldn’t see anyone which was a boo. And also we had to take elder king to south Africa because he is going home from his mission. (Watch out Montana) So we spent the whole day in SA and when we tried to come back to Lesotho we were met by the worst traffic I have ever seen in my life. We wated almost 4 hours at the boarder when our mission president then told us he didn’t want us waiting through the night and we had to drive an hour back to where we came from and spend the night. We also had a member with us from Lesotho so it was quite the experience. The next day still took three hours to get through the boarder. I never want to relive that experience again….
Member but I don't know her name...esh..
I spent all day yesterday saying goodbyes and I leave today. Its sad to leave the branch because I have been there for 7 and a half months but it is time to spread my wings. Its hard leaving the area because we now have lots of baptisms coming as well… eish…
