Not our Real P-Day, Thus a short note...

Elder Brandão and I are trying to get rid of the false tradition that APs need to stay in the office doing a lot of work.    We've set out a schedule for ourselves.  We leave the house by 8 and go straight to our area to teach lessons and find families to teach.  (We still aren't getting a lot of lessons, so for now we are just doing a lot of family finding)  We stay out in the area until about 10:30 or 11.  Then we come home eat lunch and study for a bit.   By 13:30 we're at the office and stay there until about 16, then we're back in our area until 21.
We're getting a lot of good time in our area.  That is probably in large part because President Kretly is in South Africa for a mission president's seminar.

Quick update on our area....
We continue to do a lot of contacts, we're striving to find the elect.    The two families that we found last week, we've unfortunately had to drop.  But that's okay, we found a very special family this week named Sabito and Maninha.   They are very open and are making a lot of progress.   They came to church this week, and arrived 50 minutes early.   They really enjoyed church and feel that this is the true church.  That's the good news. The bad news is that, they will be moving up to Beira for about 3 months, and they leave this weekend, so our area will be back to zero.  But no problems, I know that they'll be baptized up in Beira.  

This week are the elections.  They will be held on on the 20th of this week.    It's interesting to see all of the excitement that is going on because of the different parties.     Well, because of the elections our P-day was moved to the 20th, but we were given brief permission to write home, but now it its time to get back into the area.
