Hey everyone!!A lot has been going and I am grateful for all the blessings that the Lord has given me in helping move his work forward. Something I have really learned throughout the past couple of weeks is how I need to continually rely on the Lord. Not only on my mission, but throughout my life. What can be considered is how we've been able to overcome challenges that we have been faced with in our lives, and what gifts and blessings our Heavenly Father has given us to endure through those trials. When I look at all of the trials and challenges in my life, I realize that God had a role in each one of them. There have been many times where I did not put my faith and trust in the Lord to help me to overcome. But what I have learned is that our Father in Heaven gives us opportunities to be better, whether we ask for them or not. As a missionary, we rely on God so much in His work, but when we put all of our heart, might and mind into our purpose, we see the blessings and the fruits of our labors. Always look for those opportunities that God has given us to be better, to enlighten our minds, and enlarge our souls.

Hello yall,Africa is quite the experience. The people are cultural, the food is exotic, and the mosquitos can't take a hint. I'm starting to get accustomed to the lifestyle here and I'm truly understanding why I was sent to this part of the Lord's vineyard. My companion and I are working harder than ever to strengthen and edify our area, and we find that the Lord blesses us in ways that we do not expect.
