"It isn't easy anywhere to find people who are truly prepared for the gospel. I know that Africa is special. I am very blessed."

Sister Koch, President Koch and I celebrated Christmas together.
Happy New Year!
For those who are not informed this is the year I come home! Pretty cool! In fact in exactly 6 months I'll be packing my bags to go home!
I am super happy to still have this time on the mission. I should be leaving Maxixe here in a couple of weeks but who knows.
So it's the New Year and I think I'll just share an experience from the first day of 2017. Yesterday we biked a lot! And we ended up near those huge trees with a new investigator of ours. We sat with his family and afterwards he gave us a reference of a family near his. It ended up resulting in over 10 new investigators.
I just wanted to share that tender mercy that we received. It isn't easy anywhere to find people who are truly prepared for the gospel. I know that Africa is special. I am very blessed. I know that we can all do our part this year to help those who are searching for the truth to find it.
I love you all! I hope you start off the New Year in a great way!
P.S. More photos from Christmas in Maputo.
A Merry Mozambique Christmas!

I'm grateful for my time spent in the mission home for Christmas.

Back to reality-
I got back just in time to see Carlos and Dulce get married.
I lent the groom my tie!
They killed a pig to celebrate the wedding and the New Year.
This last December we reached the mark of 1000 baptisms in our mission.
