Awesome Week!

This past week was awesome! We had Bonginkosi's baptism yesterday and it went great! He was so happy to finally be baptised. As he was bearing his testimony after he started crying... He was filling the spirit so strong! I just love that kid.
Alexander is doing great... He should be having his interview for baptism this week and should hopefully get baptised on April 27th. Nono is still going strong and coming to church, all that is left is for her to get married. Nelson is doing good as well.
We got a few sweet investigators this week! Thato is another member of Bro. Abbey's family and is now living with them since he has a job so we will start teaching him this week. We also have another guy named Patrick. The first thing he told us is that he is joining the church and knows that it is going to change his life! He is definitely prepared... the day after we gave him the Restoration pamphlet he called and was asking questions about the apostasy and all about Christs church. He also has a few friends that want to join haha one of them thinks he is a prophet though so it will be interesting to see what he thinks when he realizes that he isn't.
I was put in charge of teaching nursery yesterday. I loved all the little kids! It was so much fun to just play with him! Little children just beam with the light of Christ!
Elder Chifokoyo and I have been trying a new approach to our teaching that seems to be working great. As I was reading through Mosiah chapter 1 to 5 it shows how King Benjamin taught true principles and then the people who listened learned for themselves that they needed to change and make covenants with God. We have been trying to make our investigators solve or realize the answers to their questions and problems for themselves and we have had some powerful experiences with it. People are seeing the need for themselves to change and because it is them coming to that conclusion they are more willing to act upon it.
As we have been doing the Book of Mormon challenge I have learned so much about my Savior and of His mission and love for us. I have truly come to know Him better than ever before. A cool scripture on knowing Him is in Mosiah 26:24.
I love you so much!
