Raining every day

What a rainy, muddy, and soaking week we've been given.  Just rain every day, so that means muddy clothes and wet missionaries.  But all in all, the work continues and the time is now to invite souls to come unto Christ.  Just recently we watched General Conference here and it was just amazing to be apart of the 3 new apostles receiving their callings.  Such a spiritually uplifting conference especially for being a missionary.  I seriously love the counsel of the leaders of the Church because they open our eyes to our true potential. 
    This week has been great, we had a baptism for Mark Mugerwa who was a referral from one of the priests in the ward.  With that support system that he has and the desire and faith that has grown, he was willing and prepared to make a covenant with God.  Mikey just recently turned 16 so he was able to baptize him, such a great moment and we are grateful for the faith of these 2.
     There's really not much else to report.  But I'm just grateful for the Atonement of the Savior.  Just to reflect upon how much love and sacrifice was made for us to have our burdens lifted and sins taken away helps me to remember that with God, anything is possible.  I just pray that I'm qualified to open the doors of salvation for others through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Through thoughtful prayer and study, I've gained a testimony of the resurrection of the Lord.  I know for myself that the tomb is empty and that the tomb echoes the truth and reality of the resurrection today and forever, for that I'm grateful.  This work is not to change lives, but to change destinies.  Love you all, have a great week.
