Yeoville and a Midnight Snack!

Hey, family! Howsit. This week was pretty good.

On Wednesday I went on exchanges in central Johannesburg, in a place called Yeoville (pronounced yo-ville) and it was pretty sweet! I was expecting it to be different than places I had served because it's an actual city, but it basically felt like a normal township, except the buildings were taller.  In Yeoville there are thousands of foreigners, every one we taught was either from Zimbabe or DRC.  It was fun though.

So last week I think I talked about Tanya, who was baptized. Well this week she was confirmed which was awesome.  She also went to institute, but there were some things that she didn't understand, (they went in depth teaching about Joseph Smith and the Urim and Thummim and stuff), so we had a cool lesson with her basically on that.  We continue to meet with recent converts for a year after their baptism, so we'll just talk to her more about church history, which will be cool.  It is one of my favorite topics.

But yeah, besides that I was sick, which was lame. My schedule for the weekend was super weird because I still tried fasting.  But then I woke up Sunday morning at 2:45am and had to make eggs with toast and honey. . . you know me and sleep, so to give up sleep for food meant that I really needed it haha. But I think I'm better now!

Anyway, talk to you all soon!
