Learning and the Spirit

What a week filled with learning and the spirit.  I love serving out here in this wonderful country with these different humble people.  There's a lot of reliance on the Lord and a lot of growth spiritually.  Even though our numbers were not the best this week, we had a lot of experiences that tested our faith and our diligence.  I've come to really appreciate the Atonement that was made for us to overcome our weakness to help us return to live with our Heavenly Father.  Because of transfers, we had to make sure each district was settled in with new missionaries and now we are starting the work hard this transfer.  
    On Sunday, Rachel Nakandi was baptized, she's like the African grandma that I never had, but her love for the gospel and the Savior is a light to the people around her. Her english may not be the best, but she loves the path that she has taken to follow the Savior.  
    Not much else to report on, but just know that the work of God is like a stone cut out without hands rolling forth throughout the earth.  Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, and His church and the blessings and authority are restored to the Earth.  Have a fun-filled week!

New transfer and staying in Mukono

The transfer is over and the new transfer has just begun.  So I'll be staying in Mukono with my companion Elder Njoko, basically the whole district is the same and we are all super unified so we are super stoked.  Being in Mukono has strengthened me so much and I've learned so much in this short amount of time of serving here.  Now I get to continue learning and I'm loving it each day.   This past sunday we had a couple of baptisms and the spirit was so strong there.  So many investigators have come to witness and there was an influencing spirit that was found.  It sparked a lot of interest in those who are interested in the church so it is a great start to this next transfer.  So I don't have that much time to write but something interesting that happened was that a guy tried to sell me weed, and he really wanted me to have it.  Never thought something like that would happen, but that's a mission.  Have a great week!  Be blessed!

Sorry I'm not being consistent with my weekly emailing.  Sometimes there's just not enough time in the day.  But a lot has been happening and the work pushes forward.
   We've seen a lot of hardships, but we are also seeing a lot of blessings.  Lately, so many more people have been attending church, whether it be investigators, Less actives, recent converts, or just random people on the street, we are blessed to have so many people have the desire to feel the spirit. I'm grateful for how the spirit works within people to motivate them to act more then themselves.  I goes to show that when the spirit is felt, lives are changed. 
    So Ntambi richard was supposed to be baptized two weeks ago, but then he got chicken pox.  We gave him a blessing and he recovered very quickly just in time for his baptism, but then the church building is getting renovated and the baptism room was all taped up and just messy with wet paint.  So, richard will be baptized this upcoming sunday.  Even though his baptism is pushed back,  he's still excited and ready to make a covenant with God.  There's also sister rachel, she loves coming to church and she's staying very far, but she always makes time to come to church.  Her english may not be the best, but she is working hard to fully understand and feel the spirit.  
     Not a lot this week, but I'm just grateful for fasting.  Fasting is the way that god see's our desires seriously.  He puts our requests into serious consideration.  and I'm grateful for it, because it helps me to recognize how the Lord works through His spirit.  There's a sense of confidence and desire that grows continually in this work and I love the guidance that the holy spirit brings.  I hope you all have a great week and remember who you are and what you stand for!
