So today marks my 6 MONTH MARK....... SOOOOOOOO CRAZY!!!
Ha but this past week was pretty good.  Lots of interesting stuff!
So the big thing this week was that it was Elder Dobards last week of mission. So most of the week was spent by Elder Dobard packing his things and bragging about going home and how excited he was.... so yeah lets just say it was a little frustrating for me! haha but it was really sad to see him go. We were really good friends and had a lot of fun together. So as a going away "party" the night before he left. we had a little bon fire and burned a lot of stuff that he didn't need anymore. like some old ties. shirts, and other old missionary stuff  and also made some no bake cookies and fried up some brownies! (we don't have an oven)haha. but it was pretty fun.
We also got transfer news this week... and i will still be here in Darajani, which is great! My new companion will be Elder Dimingu, from South Africa and he will be district leader.  So I'm excited to meet him and get back to work in Darajani!
So because elder Dobard already left, i have been with the Zone leaders Elder Dewitt and Elder Simcock for the past few days here in Mtito Andei.  Its been really nice working with them.  They are in a really tough area with not much work and a lot of problems in the branch. But its been great to be with them and work. They are super positive and hard working, which is been really helpful to me. 
But recently i have started to read the New Testament, and it is awesome!!! I love it soo much.  I love reading about the life of our Savior.  SO much good insight and teachings! I especially like how it talks about having faith and looking towards the kingdom of God.  It has really helped me a lot on mission, given me  a lot of comfort and guidance.  So grateful for the scriptures! make sure to read the scriptures every day!!
But sorry i don't really have much else to report this week, Cosmas is still doing well and we hope he can be baptized on the18th. 
But i love you all!
Elder Thomas (Daniel)
