Week 85 65 Days and counting....

Hey family this week was a good week it sounds like you guys are staying busy! Nothing really cool or special happened this week but it was a good one and hoping to improve until the end!!
On Monday we hiked old mans head again saw some huge lizards and also we had a family night at a members house with President Machava (the branch pres.) it was really good we talked about temples and we are trying to get like 4 or 5 families to the temples because none of the people here have been yet!! Right now our job is to get them there and it is a big sacrifice for them for passports it is about 100 bucks a person so if they have children which most have three or more it costs a lot and then they have the travel costs and everything else.
Tuesday was a holiday women's day so there wasn't much work done on that day no one was home so it wasn't a very successful day. 
Wednesday was just a normal day we just did the normal routine.
Thursday and Friday were normal as well.  Saturday we were supposed to have an activity where all the members come in the morning and then we go visit all the less actives but no one came haha
We had English class and we made chicken burritos!!! 
Sunady was a good day, we had 6 investigating families at church my comp gave a talk he was called at 8 in the morning to give it and I taught elders quorum and was advised with no time in advance. but it was a good Sunday
so as of now we have a big teaching pool we have 7  families.
1. Chavier and Vaida  they are a very nice family the have 4 daughters that are members they are planning on getting married
2. Chuva and Eugenia he is a member but she isn't and they are not married so we are working with them
3. Luis and Manhina same story as Chuva the are working on documents to get married.
4. Giliberto and Mamuna this is the family we found by accident thinking it was their neighbors but they are doing good and are working on getting married.
6. Joao and Fatima the neighbors of Giliberto they as well are working on getting married
7. Domingos and Olaria they have the documents to get married but are having problems in their relationship so we have to do some counseling with them. 
but I am loving it up here in Chimoio I love you have a great week!!

Week 84 The countdown is on!!

I'm doing great well they don't really do anything here for Easter. How were the talks at conference? I am jealous about the crepes.  This week was good we just worked and did what we always do we had to fill up the water tank again so that stunk and today we don't have water either.
Did you know you have 72 days left! actually 70
How is Chimioi? I love it
How is your companion? awesome
Does your companion have a blog? no
How many are in your branch?  this week we had 114 in the branch
Do you find the church is ran differently in the different areas you are in? yes and no every president has his way of doing things but for the most part it is the same
What are you going to do for p-day today? going to hike Cabeca do Velho(The Old mans head)
What is the first thing you want to do when you get home? go to the dentist and the chiropractor Haha
How are the families your are teaching?  Well we are dropping Domingos and Olaria because they haven't done much since I have been here.
Do you have any baptisms scheduled? yes at the end of the month we have two and hopefully more
The best thing about this new area?  The people are very accepting and there are no other elders here to tell you what to do.
The worst thing about this area? there isn't one.
Is this area a little more poor than the other areas?  Well we have the whole city so there are poor parts and rich parts

Week 83 Short Letter but we have Pictures

So this week has been a good week and I was freaked out by the July 15 as well!!(We got his itinerary and instead of it saying Taylor was coming home June 15th it said July 15th, I sent a letter to the mission president to clarify and they had made a mistake so he is leaving June 15th and will be home on the 16th)  I am liking my new companion, bro means I like him he is from Salem Utah and has 10 months on the mission. We have been working hard this week and I just got to finish till the end. On filling the water tanks, no we only had to fill up the tank once the water started coming in again after that!! When we didn't have water we  took bucket showers with water bottles we can drink the water but there is a chance of getting sick so we have filters at our house love you have a good week!!!!

We fixed this bathroom  for an old guy in our branch.  We are master builders the before and after photos!! We went to cut some trees down to build the bathroom.

Our water tower that we hauled the water up to.

WEEK 82 A baby Chameleon and Transfers!

Hey family,
 Well I am now on my 15 transfer, I only have this one and one more to go!!! We have been very blessed  these last few weeks with new investigators!! So we are teaching the same families this week and a few more.   We found this one family well so far we have just sat with him but his name is Topazio he is really open and excited to learn so we are excited for that but we had an interesting week this week.
 Monday we just chilled and played pool and slept and then at night while we were showering and we ran out of water so that sucked! Nothing special happened.

Tuesday we went to a funeral for a lady in our ward.  We started out at the hospital  and picked up the body and I have never smelled any thing so bad as that hospital it smelt like dead people it was terrible! After that  we came home and went out to work.

 A statue in our area of Samora Machell
the first President of Mozambique

Wednesday we found a chameleon on the road it was just a little guy we named him Pasquel like on Tangled and we still didn't have water  but it was just a normal day that morning. We had some guys come over and fix our a/c so we weren't able to go out in the morning but we still had a good day.

Thursday still no water but we had a really good day lots of lessons and walked with a member Carlitos and we found two new families.

Friday we woke up and we still didn't have water so we spent 2 hours filling up our water 1000  liter tank and the reason we didn't have water is because our tank is up on a tower  and the water company hasn't been putting out a lot of pressure so the water doesn't make it into our tank so we had a 20 liter bucket and filled it op to the top and one of us was on top pulling the bucket up with a rope while the other was on the ground filling up more buckets so that took 2 hours but it was fun. We went out that night and proselyted like normal.

Saturday was just a normal day we taught English and went out with our branch president to a few families so that was nice

Sunday I had to give a talk at church finally.  I spoke on how to strengthen your testimony it was a good talk and we had a good day.

Today are transfers my comp got transfered so my new com is Elder Mcalister  he is a bro so I am excited!! 
Hope you have a great week Love you

Week 77 The First Stake in Mozambique was Created this Week, It was AWESOME!!

Parents of Missionaries,

This Monday, some of our missionaries will be travelling from Maputo to Beira and will not have the opportunity to write home until Tuesday.  Please know that they are safe and well!  This trip is due to a miraculous weekend in which the first Stake in the country of Mozambique was organized!  All of the missionaries in the entire mission came together to witness this miracle.  The mission and the people of Mozambique are being blessed by the efforts of your missionary and your prayers in their behalf!  Feel free to respond to this email with questions or concerns.

Hello family I forgot my journal but I should be able to remember most things!! It sounds like you are all staying very busy, we are as well over here.
So as you all know Mozambique has its first stake!!!  It all started out on wed when we got transfers and so I stayed in my area with Elder Atkinson he was an elder from the other mission that got switched over  because we inherited Swaziland so he is waiting for his visa into Mozambique so we went out and worked that day and the next day we get a call from the assistants they say that they got their visa so we got transfers again and all of Swaziland got moved to Mozambique so I am now in Chimoio an outside area!!!! So we just finished off the week and on Sunday morning woke up at 3am and drove to Mozambique and went to watch the stake be created and that was awesome.  I saw all my old comps and all my recent converts so that was awesome. After we went and proselyted then woke up at 3 am and took a 20 hour bus ride to Beria!!! IT STUNK!!!  We go to Beria at 10:30  and went straight to bed and my comp and I woke up and jumped on another bust for 5 hours to get to Chimoio so we got home at like 4 pm  so that's why we are emailing today! So we went out last night and worked so I could get to know the area! I am excited to be here this letter doesn't have a lot of info because I don't know a lot yet!

Did you get all of our birthday pictures we sent you last week? YES
Did anyone give you any birthday presents?NO
Did you get transferred or have any changes?YES I AM IN CHIMOIO WITH ELDER WOLLEY
What are you doing for p-day? CLEANING THE HOUSE
That’s about all the questions I have for you this week.  I did have a challenge for you though.  Could you be completely obedient for the last 4 months of your mission?   I had this thought because I was reading Tylers blog and he said they tried complete obedience for a week and had many miracles I thought it would be a great way to end your mission though I know that is hard.  Let me know what you think of that idea.  I hope you brought your journal again cause I loved the details in your last letter.  You are awesome and we love you and miss you so much make the last 4 the best 4. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!!!

Week 76 Finally a long letter

Hello family so this week I decided to write in my journal and bring it with me so I could remember the week!!!! So here it goes!!!!
Monday: P-DAY well it was a backwards day we decided to work in the morning because we had a party for the elders that went home yesterday so we went to an all you can eat buffet at a real fancy hotel but before that me and Elder Mason went golfing it was sweet I don't remember sucking that bad but I played terrible!!! Sean we will have to go when I get home so I can get better!!! But while we were golfing it started to pour down on us so we had to play the last 3 holes kinda fast!! Before we went golfing we went to a restaurant called Spur I ordered a burger I ate it but it didn't fill me up so I told everyone that I wished I had gotten another burger and like 3 min later this white south African comes over yelling saying they gave me two burgers I only wanted one!!!! Here you can have it!! So I got a free burger!! It was great!
Tuesday:was a good day we had FHE with the members in our area also had a new first lesson  which was nice and sat with a few of our investigators as well.
Wed:was a rainy slow day there was also  the craziest thunder storm I have seen it was pretty cool we had three lessons and only 5 contacts and we got really wet!!!
Thursday :there was a power outage so that kinda stunk but the day was really good sat with three new families. We also sat with Sizwe a single guy who is investigating the church who finally said the BOM was true so that was nice that he finally got his answer!!!
Friday: We did some interior decorating of our house in the morning we brought in  three more couches from the back room and another fridge!!! So now we have a sweet set up in our main room. the morning was kinda slow we just knocked doors for 4 hours in the sun but we got like 3 contacts so now we just hope to sit with them!!
Saturday:  We woke up to no power so apparently during the night a transformer blew up so just the houses on our property are out of power! we had a great morning Sat. with a new family and got 11 contacts by door knocking!! (I swear we have knocked every door in our area)  and then for lunch we went to Spur again because there was no power to cook anything!!!  District Conference was about how members and missionaries can work together so it was great!! After we had one lesson with a recent convert Victor about prophets.
Sunday: still no energy had the second half of District Conference and the new district theme is putting your house in order. After we said goodbye to Elder Bender and Elder Galland two of my favorite Elders in the mission!! Bender lives in Hendeson Nevada and Galland lives in Provo.
So for lunch I had a peanut butter and cinnamon sugar sandwich and some warm lemon soda! ha it was great and then  sat with a new family that had ZER0 intres tin our message!!  Then we came home to still no power!
We were supposed to have transfers today but they got moved until wed!! So that stinks!!

Did you get all the Christmas letters everyone sent you?  YES I DID  THERE WAS ONE LETTER THAT I DIDN'T KNOW WHO IT WAS FROM!
What are some places in Swaziland that you want to see before you leave? YES BUT I CANT LEAVE OUR AREA SO I WONT BE ABLE TO
Can you go to the senior missionaries house to send me some pictures?  That way you shouldn’t get a virus.  Would love me some pictures!! I WOULD LOVE TO BUT THEY DON'T WANT A VIRUS ON THEIR COMPUTER SO THEY DON'T LET ANYBODY USE IT!
Did you do your deferment for BYU Idaho?  I THINK I DID BEFORE THE MISSION BUT I HAVE NO CLUE

The festival is over  so our area is back to normal I think I will stay the rest of my mission here but there is a chance of me going to Mozambique. Well the Mcewens are from Idaho some place near Rupert.  It sounds like dad is staying very busy with the new job so that's good. This week we did a lot of finding and found 2 new good families so that was nice. Oh and yesterday after the conference my comp and I were chosen to do a division with President Kretly and Elder Ellis and bring them to our families. So I went with Pres. Kretly so that was pretty sweet!!! It was kinda funny because he talked the whole time. I am sorry for my very short letters I just don't know what to write!!!!  But I still love you guys!

Week 72 Transfers means Packages!!

TRANSFERS!!!!  So that means packages on Tuesday!!!!! So I was frustrated because transfers are a big deal! It can change up everything but me and my comp stayed the same but the other companionship changed we lost one elder!  I love my area and my companion so we are good!!! Well so the 13 families how can I say this, we cycle through them very fast and I didn't mean to say 13  we have like 7  but we may sit with 5 new families throughout the week but most of them we drop!! Yes I  bought baby powder but I got this cream stuff that helps a lot!  (chaffing from the super hot weather and sweat) 5 MONTHS!! its crazy, its going soo fast!!!!(that is how long he has left on his mission) June 15 as far as I know(release date)!!!! and 3 days(his friend Josh gets home off his mission) !!! holy crap  That's sweet that we got got the job for the farm and that sounds pretty funny about the hypnotist lady!!! Speaking of subbing for primary I did that yesterday! I have not got the letters but I have a new mailing address that will make things get here a lot faster I will send it next week.
This week was a kind crazy week!!!  So the first half of the week was normal but everything changed on Thursday. So in our area is the kings palace where they have all the cultural events and this week they had an event called Incwala (there is a click where the c is and it means the first fruits it is a Harvest Festival) and so in this festival the king takes a shower on top of a dead cow and all the men from around Swaziland come and bring parts of a tree to make a house for the king and then they go and dance for him. After all that the king won't shower for 2 days and so during these two days there are the kings men who patrol our area making sure no one is using water and men have to wear traditional clothes and so do the women and if you are not doing these things they fine you!!! So during this time people will not answer their door because they think it is the kings men wanting money so no one wanted to answer their doors for us during these days so work was a little slow and we got fined 5 times in two day by the kings men (AKA the water people)  and so we come to find out what they do with the money is they make a huge fire and burn it all!!! All in all we gave them maybe like 50 cents!!! So our week was very interesting I have some pictures  that I will send next week. Also we did sit with two really nice families this week!!! So we are excited about that!!!  What is the name of the town we are going to in Costa Rica?  Yes, I am still working hard we are doing great!

Week 71 Still no Transfers which means still No PACKAGES!

Well no packages because they postponed transfers again!!! So today was a very disappointing day!!! No transfers:( ask Sean how not getting transfers are in the mission he might be able to shed some light on this subject! As soon as I get my packages you will know!!!

Teaching in English is going good I can say everything I want without a problem so that's nice! The English here sounds like broken African English but the people here, who are very fluent sound almost like  South Africans. This week we found a total of 13 new investigators and got some to come to church which was nice!! The problem with the marriages here isn't as bad but it still exists but it is way cheaper and easier to get married here than in Mocambique and yes the lobola here is very strong but they can get married without paying all of it so that's nice.  

The weather these days are Hot!!! and yes I am tired of sweating and chaffing!!! No one has an AC but luckily we do.  Most of  the houses here are made of blocks and have tin roofs so inside the house is usually hotter!!I am way jealous that it snowed!!! lucky!!! and it was a preach my gospel survey! Didn't dad just buy a new truck?   Now I am confused, what truck died?

Do the youth have stake dances even though you don’t have a stake yet? they have dances
How was the museum last week? it was good it was kinda dumb but it was worth it
What are you doing for p-day today? well we had nothing planned because we thought transfers were going to happen
Do you ever go to your primary in Mozambique? yes, once  If so is it a lot different? not to much the kids are more rowdy but they sing primary songs and have games and lessons
Are the youth pretty strong their? yes they are very strong!!!
