We put Andrew on an airplane to South Africa one year ago today! That means he's half done. Man, that went fast. Today he's in his 3rd area (1st - Nseleni, 2nd - Mpumalanga) now, Amanzimtoti. Living in an apartment near the Indian Ocean. He's a district leader. He's with his 7th companion Elder Schmitz who is from Montana. Other companions were Elder Warner (his trainer), Elder Sprague from Nevada, Elder Eddy, Elder Crowther from Virginia, Elder Feliciano from Mozambique and Elder Tandberg from Colorado. It's an English speaking mission but he has picked up a few Zulu words and loves playing soccer with the local kids.
