A Birthday and a Baptism

Hello Hello,
            We had a good week this week! Really mental in fact.
            The families we are teaching are doing well, never a dull moment I'll tell you what. We had a good lesson with the Simbis yesterday. We taught a lesson while we snacked on some sugar cane. Apparently that’s what they do in Africa! They are loving what we teach and we always feel the spirit with them. Lots of our lessons this week were really focused on reading the Book of Mormon. We read 3 Nephi 11 with Yohanna and he loved it. The spirit was powerful as we read it together, and he recognized it for sure. The Book of Mormon is so powerful. 
            Had a couple exchanges this week. I didn’t even see Elder Vogel for 2 days straight haha but we got lots of work done in our area and the other missionaries’ areas as well. Found a cool guy from Portugal that we are going to start teaching. He looks a bit like John Lennon which is cool.

            My birthday was pretty great. The weather was really great – sunny and warm. We played some football with our investigators. It was fun, lots of them came. And then we had a couple lessons. And the best part of all – Roy got baptized! Neil baptized him. It was great to see Roy get baptized by another recent convert. We sang "I am a Child of God" in Chinese at the baptism and the spirit was super strong. It was the best way to spend a birthday! 
            The weather is still great today! And I am looking forward to another great week in Norwich! Great things are happening!!
