Happy 4th of July from the Congo! Wish I could be with you all to celebrate the birth of our wonderful nation, but I'll just be doing it at the apartment with sparkling cider and chili fries! I hope that you all have a good holiday and you enjoy yourselves!
This week was a really good one for me here in the Congo! This week was spent preparing our amis for baptism! We have 2 amis, Jhonathan and Amour, that we saw almost everyday this week to prepare them for their baptismal interviews and they both went well! The only hard thing was that Amour got sick so we had to go look for him on the day of his interview. But they are now going to be baptized this Saturday! We are having a big baptism with Ouenze and Moungali (neighboring "arrondissements" or sectors in Brazzaville) and our ward so it should be pretty amazing! The two are super excited and they have been doing amazing. Jhonathan asked me if I would baptize him so I'll get to be dressed up in white once more!
But other than that, I got to go on splits with Elder Frazer who is from Canada and it was really fun! We had a great day and it was really good for him because he got a chance to truly lead in the lesson and it was so awesome to feel the Spirit as he was talking. He is an amazing missionary. Also, we fixed baptism dates with 2 new amis this week so we are hoping to have another 4 baptisms before I leave, which would be unbelievable!
This next week we have misson council and also we are getting transfer letters, but I already know that I'm not going anywhere:) So my text transfer is back home!
I love you all so much and I thank all of you for your emails and I hope you have an amazing week and holiday! Go and eat a lot of yummy food for me!
