What a blessed time to be here in Uganda. the work is pushing forward, and plenty of miracles are out and about. Something amazing that we've seen is that in the ward, we had 13 investigators come to church. We have a lot of those 13 preparing for baptism and it looks really good for the ward. Something that we have a hard time in this mission is the language barrier. This is an english speaking mission, but there's only a handful that know english fluently. Something that the ward has put together is an english literacy class to teach english for free to investigators and new members. Everyone is excited for it and it looks like we will have a lot more people attending church. A miracle that we have seen is that one night my companion and i decided to go contacting outside of the church. I talked to this one man and he shared with me how he had a rough life and he's a single parent with two daughters. We set a return appointment and he had to bounce us a couple of times, but we eventually got to teach him and the family. We taught him about the Restoration of the gospel and the spirit was filled in the room. I could just tell that the spirit touched his heart so strongly and the humility he showed was inspiring. we invited him to church. He came super late to sacrament meeting but it was only because he had a program before church and after he was planning on picking up his daughters. His commitment just makes me super happy. I'm loving the work that is going on and the spirit of the Lord that leads and guides it. I just feel very blessed to know that I have done some good in the world.
