Once again, sorry that my email is late. It was
Angolan Independence day on Sunday, so the country took a day off on
monday. We didn't think any cyber cafés were open. Sorry!
here are the same. Not too many lessons were done in my area due to
misplanning. It is hard in a tripanionship across 2 areas. But I do love
the zls! They rock.
K started drinking again. He keeps letting people borrow his
Book of Mormon and doesn't read it for himself! We're working with him.
However, D had his baptismal interview this week. He'll be getting
baptized on Saturday. It should be neat!
I'm really happy to hear about all of the great things that Weston
and Owen are doing. It's cool that they're going to the temple and
exercising the preisthood. Man that is good! In fact, it's so good that
if Owen were to promise to get his Eagle scout and Weston got straight
A's in school (while continuing temple work) I wouldn't be surprised if
they were blessed in many MANY different ways. Spiritually, and
HALO4istically. Nope. Wouldn't surprise me at all. ;)
I am super excited for Christmas. Can't wait to see you guys.
Everyone is growing from what I can see in the pictures that you've
sent. I'm excited. It's really hard to believe that I'm almost at a year
mark. I hear that time flies after a year, so I need to push it hard
now!!! I don't know if this will get to you all in time for Elder Banta,
but: I've heard nothing about bikes yet... that would be interesting!
Bring a good flashlight, keep it safe. Make sure that you have one
fitted sheet. Both of mine are flat, and I have to redo the bottom sheet
nearly everyday. And tell him to polish his shoes weekly! I've been
polishing every week, and as I see other Elder's shoes, I'm amazed at
the results. I'm hoping to wear all 3 of my pairs of shoes after I come
Yea, I heard about the election. Angolans were really excited that a
black person was still in office. hahaha O well. I'm happy that you got
the kwanza though. There should be another letter coming to you guys
But the week was a little slow. I do have a story for you all though:
while we were shopping yesterday, it rained. A LOT. There was a mini
river in the street. Angolans aren't big on rain, because rain with dust
equals mud... a lot of mud. hahahaha
As for my walk with President Thompson, it was really nice. Last Pday
him and Sister helped us clean our new appartment. Since President
Kretly has a lot of the power, it frees a lot of time for President
Thompson to spend time with the Elders. We're all getting pretty close
with Pres. It should be nice if we become our own mission in July.
I love you all so much. Keep doing what you're doing!
Elder Alex Hobbs
Ps I did take out 20$ Não preoccup-se
