Yesterday as you know we had our Christmas Zone Conference. It was so nice to hear from President. We were interviewed and we had to RP (Role Play) with President and teach the Kingdoms of Glory in Illongo to him, I struggled because of my nervousness, but Elder Mata'utia pounded in the spirit real well, and I hope we can apply that to our teachings.
I am now comfortable in speaking the language. Usually my first teaching everyday is the roughest, but after that it starts coming and I am usually pretty strong in my speech. I by no means am fluent or sagad sa Illongo, but I can teach and get my point across clearly. Elder Mata'utia and Zobell have really helped my progress in my language and this week I have felt my improvement greatly! I was able to teach the whole Plan of Salvation to Eddie on Sunday without help from my companion. That is usually where I learn most my language is when I teach him, because it is more relaxed and I am able to figure out what I am saying and how to say it while teaching.
Well Family thanks for everything. Send me some pics. I love the videos and am so happy to see all of you next week. My Skype is connected to my Facebook. I recommend for best quality is use a CPU and not a laptop. Unless our CPU sucks then use the laptop. I have everything setup and it should be ready. I recommend linking your skype account with facebook for easy access. Send some questions now if you have some. I love you and Merry Chirstmas!
