Transfers!!! We are staying! No surprises there. Good stuff.
This week we had a pretty cool experience as a couple of cool brothers came up to us and asked if we were Latter-Day Saints. They turned out to be newly arrived members from Nigeria! AFRICAN BRANCH HERE WE COME! Their names are Fabulous and Kingsley.
Yesterday after church we went to the Fitzner's house with Samuel, member John, and Emmanuel. John and Samuel not only happen to be neighbors in Samuel's new apartment, but they also lived just 20 km away from each other in Nigeria, and will talk to each other in their local dialect when they feel like it.
Investigator John had a crazy week. HE ALREADY PAYS HIS TITHING. Apparently one day he just asked Godwin if we pay tithes here and Godwin showed him the envelopes. Since then he's payed every month. It's cool to see how much the Atonement has already been working in his life, I can't wait for him to take the next step in the Gospel, though that won't be for a couple weeks since he'll need an interview with president.
Mario might get dropped soon, we taught Ernesto, and we are really working on getting new investigators from English course.
In other news: the elders in our district broke a rope during a tug of war. Another victory was miraculously getting out of eating the fifth course at a members house, and my pasta consumption has gone up to its summer levels of 350+ grams a meal.
The sisters apparently didn't get the memo that we
were just smiling for the district picture.
