Busy, Busy, Busy...and Loving it

Hello everyone how are you doing!?
  This last week was really tiring and also really amazing! There were a lot of planes and buses and interviews to be done and I think it is the week during my mission where I have been the most busy! During the week, we started in Douala and I went out to Bonaberi and worked with 2 missionary teams out there for 2 days and it was amazing! They are all doing so well! Also got to see a lot old amis and members! Then we took a bus to Yaounde and once we got off it was back to work with 2 of the teams in the Bastos District! I was there Thursday and Friday and then on Saturday, we took the bus back to Douala and the plane back to Brazzaville. And on the way back, we met two air waitresses (or people that work for the plane) from Angola and talked to them about the Church so it was pretty cool!
   It was a super awesome week and I got to meet a lot of new people and it was such an amazing experience. Being in Douala brought back a lot of old memories and I found a lot of stuff that I had left in the apartment! One the best things was meeting all of the missionaries. Now I have meet them all except 2 which are in Gabon! But while we were gone, our amis were doing well.  We have 2 amis named Johonaton and Amour that will be baptized soon and they came to the basketball activity and institute and they are really loving the Gospel and they are doing so well! This week we are planning for mission council and receiving Elder Ellis from the South African Presidency, so we are pretty stoked!
   I love you all so much and I thank all that wrote me this last week and I wish you an amazing new week! For a challege go and drink some sparkling cider in honor of the Cavs victory!

Miracles and Missionary Work in the Congo

Hey everyone how are you!?
  This week was an amazing one for Elder Mikanda and I here in Diata! Just wanted to thank everyone that wrote me this week and all of you who sent up prayers on my behalf! I don't have a bunch of things to say this week! We have been really busy working with 5 amis which we hope will be baptized on the 9th of July! They are Deborah, Jhonathon, Rock, Fernese, and Amour. They all want to be baptized and we have been having some really amazing lessons with them during the week!
  I also got to go on splits with Elder Gilbert and it was so much fun! He really taught me a lot just in the way he went about doing missionary work! Just goes to show that we are learning everyday!
  We leave Congo to go to Cameroon tomorrow to go on splits and it's gonna be so much fun! I hope to do a lot and work really hard!
   I love you all so much and I hope that you have a great week! Go and eat some Oreos for me! And just wanted to thank my family for the amazing goodie package that I got! Somehow it got through to me pretty quickly!

Short and Sweet

Hello everyone,  
   I have no idea what to say to you today. This last week was a week full of meetings. So it was kinda boring and we didn't have a lot of time to see our amis. But it was still really good.
   But I have good news! Next week Elder Mikanda and I are going on splits with most of the Elders in Cameroon! So I get to go back! It's so weird but I'm really excited to go. I'm just doing my best to work's so weird to think that it's June already. I used to dream about being at this point in my mission. The time is flying by. But I love you much and I hope you have a good week! Go and have an ice cream shake for me!

Love you all so much!!
Elder Legerski!
