Yup.... my companion, Elder da Silva got Malaria. He's a native from Mozambique and has had it before, so it didn't last too long. He's fine now.
On Wednesday I went on a division out in Matola. Last time we did a division with the Zone Leaders there, I stayed in Maputo with Elder Santos. This time, Elder Santos came to be with Elder Bra
We were walking in an area called Liberdade, at the time there weren't any men on the road, but there were two little boys playing. We asked them if their parents were home. They said yes. We asked again, just to make sure that both of their parents were home. They were. The house was close by, and we managed to sit with the entire family. The lesson went very well. I find it interesting that the Lord most often blesses us with these great families in the very moment that things are hardest. We just need to choose to have a good attitude all the way. On the division, we could have let the early morning rain affect us, we could have let the dropped lessons get us down, but because we didn't we were able to recognize the blessings that the Lord had in store for us.
I know that in my life I have lost opportunities because I was looking down. The opportunities were still there, but I didn't recognize them. I believe that the Lord always gives his children opportunities, and we need to keep our head, and spirits up.
I really enjoyed the division with Elder Williams.
This week we will be preparing for an audit this weekend, and the audit will be closely followed by a visit from Elder Hamilton of the 70 at the end of this month.
