Wow, I don't even know where to start. This has been, by far, the busiest week I've had on my mission. On Monday night, all the missionaries I came to South Africa with were able to go to the mission home for dinner with President and Sister Dunn. It was so much fun and so many memories were brought to pass! As you can imagine, we didn't get much sleep that night for Transfers on Tuesday, which went so well. The entire Johannesburg mission was there and all 22 of us bore our final Testimony. It was such a powerful meeting and I can't believe how fast the time has gone!
For my last week or so of mission, I will be with Elder Dlamini(Swaziland) and Elder Bua(Uganda). We are in the area of Kwa Thema. We had a powerful week this week as we had over thirty lessons and even the baptism of Paballo Mayiane. I look forward to this last full week of mission and know it is going to be sweet. I love serving in township and being the only white guy in the area.
Well all I can say is THE CHURCH IS TRUE and I KNOW IT! The work I have done these last two years has been for the people of South Africa and I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ has and will forever make their lives increasingly better now and FOREVER!
See you next week family! Cheers, Elder Segil

Well I don't have too much time today because for all of us going home this month, we will be going to the mission home for a final farewell and we need to make a few stops along the way. The Dunn's are having us all over for dinner and it should be a lot of fun!
This was a great week and unfortunately both Elder Loveless and I are leaving this area. I will spend my last two weeks in a threesome somewhere else in the zone. It should be lots of fun and I hope to be able to put up pictures this week or next.
On Thursday, I had final interviews with President Dunn, which went so well. I love the Dunn's very much and am so grateful for all their hard work!
Well I will hopefully have more time next week, but for now keep well and see you soon!
