First of all, I have to clear something up. I don't want to give the mistaken idea that I'm completely changed in my morning behaviors and that I'm perfect in that way. I am doing really good in the mornings and I am always in a good mood when I wake up, but I've been that way for a while and I know that I'm liable to revert back to my old ways of struggling to wake up, although I won't revert to being in a bad mood in the morning. But we did have a conversation about my strength in the morning and me giving advice on that thing to my companion and I thought that was really funny.
As for my area. Things have been a bit frustrating lately. December is a really hard month in South Africa and every missionary will attest to that fact. Our area really took a hit in December and it hasn't really recovered. Also our progressing investigators who were supposed to be baptized we've done a bit of probing and found out they don't understand or believe in the restoration at all. Now they haven't been to church for 2 weeks and I'm really worried we'll lose them. So there hasn't been a ton going on lately but that doesn't mean the area is awful.
We had a fireside about missionary work on Sunday and it went really well. We're going to have a huge event in April at the chapel that will hopefully get the area pumped full of investigators. Also the bishop invited a couple to church and we've been teaching them. They're so awesome and they're getting baptized for sure. They will really be a huge help for the ward and we're really excited about them.
As for me I got my transfer news and I'm leaving the area and going to Queenstown. That's going to be sweet. That's pretty much the last area of the mission that I haven't seen. My new companion is Elder Alred. I know him he's really cool and he's probably one of the most genuinely nice people I've ever met. He's from Mona Utah. It's going to be a nice place to finish my mission so I'm really excited and I feel fired up. I think this is going to be my best area of all.
I know I'm terrible about pictures. I don't have a cord for my camera so it's hard for me to send pictures home. I think I should buy one and then next week I'll try and send a lot of pictures home.
