Serving in Nyakato & Speaking Swahili!
Was able to hop on for a few minutes just to say I got here safe from Durban- got to Nairobi on Tuesday, spent the day at the mission office and with the assistants to the mission president Wednesday and this morning I flew here to Mwanza, Tanzania which is south of Lake Victoria.
We serve in Nyakato. All of Mwanza is Swahili speaking and Ive been told the best place to learn it because there's no English spoken here. Pretty excited to learn it. Such a difference in the culture.
My companion is from Florida, super nice guy. We fly to all our zone conferences and Monday we will be flying to Arusha, Tanzania for the week of Christmas with all the elders who are serving in Tanzania (only 3 areas).
Not sure when we'll email - maybe monday morning or Tuesday. We'll see.
And thanks for the packages- Durban will forward them; but don't send any packages here.
The Mission home asked that all mail through the next 2 years (actually 22 months now) be sent to this address:
Elder Brandon Eveson
Kenya Nairobi Mission
PO Box 46162-00100
Upper Hill Road next to Citigroup
They courier it to the Missionaries all through Kenya and Tanzania once a week.
Love you guys and Ill email when I can. Can't wait to talk on Christmas!
