Nakupenda!! (Swahili for I love you)

Hey mom! Everything has been going super well. This week my companion and i have been teaching the investigators at the MTC. their names are Ken Lyomo and Grace Nkosi. They are just roles that the teachers assume but it has been going super well teaching them. ive also learned two new games, and a bunch of words in swahili. President Reber said that this is one of the few MTC’s in the world that doesnt have the capacity to teach a language so that’s probably why i didnt get called to speak in swahili. On tuesday we had the opprotunity to go through the Jo Burg temple. from the outside it looks like a church house in canada. when i told the elders from africa that our temples were made out of granite instead of brick which they couldn’t wrap their minds around it. Nine of the elders didn’t have the opprotunity to get endowed before they got to the mission home so they had that wonderful opprotunity on tuesday. They went again today so all the white elders are stuck at the MTC with Brother Mocke. Hes a cool guy. He reminds me of Randy Roe except hes from cape town and has a sweet accent. During sports yesterday we Elder Malpage, and Elder Kaufusi taught them all how to play rugby. It kinda of reminded me of the gospel. At first it doesnt make sense, but eventually it makes sense and you have a blast. Ive been jogging and working out everyday so i dont get fat haha. Elder Lafleur and i are going to have a push up contest on the day we leave. I think i can beat him though. Hes only from utah haha. i was a little dissapointed to see only three emails from family though. If you could ask Lacey to repost that i would appreciate emails that would be sweet. im loving it here. im not sure i called TD Canada trust before i left. if you could call 18662223456 and tell them i will be in kenya for the next two years that would be great. Elder Malpage is pressuring me to get off so i have to sign off now. Nakupenda!! Elder Payne
