I hope everyone had a good week and that everything is going well back at home! I heard that the Braves beat Syracuse and that they've started a little win streak! Keep it rolling' boys! This week was crazy/busy! A lot of stuff happened and I can't wait to tell you all about it!
First off, I have some bad news....One of our less-active members who we had been teaching passed away on Monday night...I got a call from our Branch President with the sad news about Jeremy and we attended his funeral on Wednesday. The ceremony was taken place right outside of his house and it was a very sad moment. The good part about it all was we had a lot of the members of the branch there to support his family. Jeremy is now in the spirit world and I know that he is continuing the lessons with the missionaries there.
Okay, now here's a funny story! On Thursday we went out to teach Voangy only to realize that she still has a problem with Coffee....Now her bap date is on Oct. 3 but that's a different story! While we were driving away from her house we realized we had a flat tire.....Not a big deal, I've already had to deal with these! All we were going to do was put on the spare and continue to work! Well, when we went to put on the spare we realized that it was flat too! Shocker, right? The rest of the day was spent waiting for the Manadona missionaries to come out and save us and getting the tires repaired! That's just the life of a missionary I guess, haha!
We had 9 investigators attend church this week between our two branches! 3 in Andranomanelatra and 6 in Sarodroa! The working is progressing! It's great to see all these people we teach start to come to church and hopefully they continue to come! Our next scheduled baptism should be on Oct. 3!
Well, that's about it for the week! It was busy and crazy all at the same time! That's just one thing you got to love about missionary work! I love this work so much and I love being a missionary! I love you all so much and I hope that everyone has a great week!
Love, Elder Stringfellow
