i recovered the orginial email -- tender mercies

Another week came and went and small signs of progress came with it.
Yesterday our hours of effort was blessed with two new investigators that
both came to church. Their names are Arianne and Felicité.

      Arianne is an old investigator that Elder Bulunga and I abandonned
nearly three months ago because she never understood anything we ever
taught or kept any of the egagements that we left her with. Miraculously,
she called us up this past week and was able to tell us every detail of
everthing we'd ever taught.

      Felicit√© is an... experienced woman that has... been around the block
a couple of times. She had heard about the church while she was staying in
the Ivory Coast and is interested in what we have to say.

      The rest of the week was spent tirelessly trying to bring back the
bunches of inactive members that are in our sector. We're making small
amounts of progress; but something is better than nothing.

      Elder Brou is getting transferred to Calavi this Saturday and nobody
is happy. I'm going to miss him a LOT. The remplacement is Elder Indumbi
(<--- total guess with the spelling) He's from the Congo.

      All and all this week was pretty good. We're looking forward to and
hoping for more progress and good news next week!

This is what we would have gotten had Elder Gray not been able to recover the original email:

Well....

      I had a big giant detailed letter all typed out and fancy... but it got lost. I don't really know how.

      I'm gonna have to give a super fast and super simplified version.

      Elder Brou is getting transferred to Calavi and I'm super sad and going to miss him a whole lot. Elder Indumbi is going to replace him. He's from the congo.

      This week our efforts were blessed with two new investigators that came to church yesterday. Their names are Arianne and Mama Felicit√©. We were also able to bring two innactive members back to church for the first time is months.

      Progress is coming at a slow and steady pace. We're looking forward to and hoping for more good news next week!

Love you lots!
