Week Thirty-One: The Subject is Meaningless

Hello my loved ones,

Not a lot happened this week. Besides three days straight of missionary interviews with president. The three Harare Zones had interviews so we had so many missionaries in the office this week.
And Elder and Sister Peterson have learned their duties so the secretary jobs have been handled well.

However, With a Senior Couple Sister at the front desk, candy is a Guarantee. And since I sit at the desk all the time without walking around, and the candy is always within reach, I've had to enforce some limitations for myself.

It has gotten a few laughs, so that is good.

But one of the cultural differences here is that it is not offensive to say someone is fat. And so one of our beloved investigators, after not seeing them for a couple weeks, told us plainly. "You've both gotten fat." And so naturally we excused ourselves with "It's Sister Peterson's fault for putting candy in the office." and "whenever we are bored the go-to fun thing is to go to the front desk and get a piece of candy."

But there yet is hope for Elder Wilcken, there are whisperings, rumors, and hopes that we may get temporarily released from Office. And put somewhere we can walk again.
the next transfer is 10 May 2016 - 21 June 2016. And the Peterson's leave on 29 June 2016. So with them handling the office, we may be sent to an area for the transfer.

However, it is still unsure. I won't say "which means" because "who says that's what it means."

Elder Shepherd and I took some pictures to give to Auntie Sheila, to put on the "Wall of Fam" that I think I mentioned around the start of this month. This was one of the pictures (not the one we used). It could potentially in the future have a temple in the background. But that is still an unconfirmed rumor.

However this next week people are coming to survey land for the Temple. So it is super exciting to me.

Anyway I hope all is well with you all. May the Lord bless you in all that you do.
-Elder Wilcken
