We are very happy to have had 11 TEPs granted to our missionaries this week and 1 TRP. We like to keep everyone legal!! We must be spending too much time at Immigration though because while waiting yesterday, Fedex delivered a parcel to us there. Just kidding about being there too much. The Fedex man saw us there and brought in a small parcel! We did get a chuckle out of that though.
Jim is at the District Presidency meeting right now and I just finished baking some banana muffins to take to the Elders at District Development meeting tonight. That should make them happy!
Here is a little bit of an email from Elder & Sister Heck in Zimbabwe who attend the Marondera Branch. We attended that Branch for the first 6 months or so of our mission in Zimbabwe. When we were there they were meeting in a house that needed a lot of repairs. They did own the house and property and the Church has built a nice Church for them now. They now have 2 sets (I think) of full time missionaries working there. Exciting things happening there.
From Sis. Heck ----- " I want you to know that I had a wonderful Birthday yesterday at Marondera. We created a new Branch there called the MomboTombo Branch, and Brother Chale is now President Chale. It was a wonderful time, and the members excepted the division with open arms. The last 4 Sundays we have been averaging over 200 in attendance, and the building was built to accommodate 135. It is just unbelievable what is going on out there. We love it. This coming Sunday we are having another baptism, and supposed to have 41, I will try to remember to send you pictures." ----
Can you imagine 41 baptisms in one day!!! We heard they recently had 25 in one day. The members there must be thrilled at the growth of the Church in their small City. Hopefully they can integrate them all in. There will be a need for lots of training.
The skies and blue and the sun is shining. It is about 27 degrees C. We can't complain about that. We are doing fine and hope you all are too.
Love, Elder & Sister Bullock
