Hey everyone. How's memorial day? I'm glad the internet is working
today. Last week I couldn't read/send anything. Anyway the last two
weeks have been very busy for us. We had baptisms the last two
saturdays. First was Sarah and her son Thompson. Then this last
Saturday was Gifty and Anita. Elder Kivaya has been teaching all
these people for a super long time, and I think he's really happy they
have finally been baptized. Gifty and Anita were both miracles.
Gifty came to church for the first time since I've been in Oda 3
sundays ago just out of the blue. Then Anita after rejecting a
baptismal date last week wednesday told us last week saturday to add
her name to the list. It was really cool. Anita's younger brother
did the baptisms.
The last two weeks were also the last two weeks of the transfer. The
last two weeks of the transfer are kind of like the redzone of the
mission. Everyone who is behind in their goals (like us) is
struggling and praying for those two weeks. One of our candidates,
after begging for baptism and complaining about it for months, was
finally prepared with her twin sons for saturday, but unfortunately
for some reason she's decided to avoid us and we couldn't get the
interview accomplished, and she didn't show up to the baptism or
church on sunday. Well whenever she has the desire we'll sacrifice
and prepare her again.
Well I guess this is the rainy season. And soon to be world cup
season. So the work here may slow a bit. Here no one likes to do
anything or go anywhere when it is raining. On saturday it rained at
like 3:30-4:00 and the baptism was at 5:00. We started at 5:30 and in
total there were I think 12 people around. Anyway I took some time
to write you guys letters during some rain. I'll send them at zone
conference this Saturday.
Well I love you guys. Happy birthday Spencer! Happy birthday Dad!
Happy Memorial Day everyone! Congrats on finishing another school
year, Talk to you later.
