There is such a sweet spirit about kids.


The house decoration looks okay. It took me a second to figure out what in the heck it was haha looks like a flag from a country in Europe.... but its a present, right?! and dad, please dont tell me you used printer paper for the white lines hahaha! you crack me up :) and heck yeah, you better run that ragnar run next expecting you to! I'll run one with ya when I get does that sound?! I wasn't disappointed with the christmas package at was filled with lots and lots of love from my great family...what more do I need?! we'll pass on the Skype this year...and any picture will be fine for the Christmas card. Be creative, and just make sure I look decent, okay?! yeah, I get my hair cut every once and a while..and okayy, now we're talkin with this package. I'll keep my eyes open and see what I can do. Heres the thing...if I send it home by boat, it takes like 3 months to get there.... but if thats what you want.

We didnt do the mall thing. theres a guy in the ward that is like gonna assist us, so it'll start up in January.

Mommy, of course I'm flossing. not every single night though. and Elder Giles never brushes his teeth before he goes to bed. He is lazy.gimme a dental fact that'll convince him to brush haha and thanks for the REAL recipe

"South Africa, A World in One Country!"

As for the week here in Cape Town, it was nice. We practiced singing for our upcoming zone conference, that was fun. We helped this awesome guy in our ward move to this nice house! That was fun. We also got invited to the Relief Society activity! We helped set up, which they really appreciated. there was about 30+ sisters there. They all made like decorative Christmas hats to wear, and yeah, Elder Giles and I were the judges! haha it was fun.... and of course, there were so many fancy decorations, food afterwards! haha it was a fun morning to spend with the loving sisters in the Meadowridge ward. At church it was the Primary program. I could tell the primary president was stressed, but it turned out amazing. There is such a sweet spirit about kids. I enjoyed it a lot. and plus we had 5 investigators there, so that was a bonus.

There was a sad part of the week. that sweet lady we always visit in the hospital who has cancer told us the doctors told her that she's only got about 3 weeks to 3 months left here in her mortal probation on the earth. She's not doing too well, but I sure do hope and pray that whatever happens will be okay. I love that lady. I really do. I'm not taking my health for granted any more.

Our car was making all kinds of squeaking noises! So we took it in this morning, and of course, when the guy got in to listen to the sounded normal with no noise! haha! but eventually it squeaked and he said we needed new break pads, so we got that all sorted out. We were near the mission office and popped in to say hi and decided to do some service for the 2 senior couples that work in the mission office. We washed both of their cars, which they were very appreciative, and we washed the AP's car. We watered President Wood's tree he planted. Shame its dying haha. he's up in Namibia right now. We did that all this morning, on our p-day! haha.

This upcoming week is going to be busy. Tomorrow is exchanges. Thursday is the ward party at church, and then all day Friday is our zone Christmas activity! Its going to take up the whole day! They are even flying the elders from Namibia down, and it'll be all of us elders here in Cape Town. Its going to be freakin fun! I cant wait.

This week I clicked 15 months! Wow. 9 to go.  The scripture is D&C 124:45-46

45 And if my people will hearken unto my voice, and unto the voice of my servants whom I have appointed to lead my people, behold, verily I say unto you, they shall not be moved out of their place.
46 But if they will not hearken to my voice, nor unto the voice of these men whom I have appointed, they shall not be blest, because they pollute mine holy grounds, and mine holy ordinances, and charters, and my holy words which I give unto them.

I'll try and find out some details about our phone call and let you know next Monday!
My time on the computer is up.

LOVE you!
-Elder Haws
