Got news that next week we will be going from the worst flat in the mission to the nicest, and biggest in the mission. It is right by the market where the church is located, and it is a mansion. Only one anywhere near that in all the areas around. I want to spend a year in this area. I love the area as well as the soon to be flat of ours. Yet again-- I reallllly hope I am not transferred next week- that would be a bummer. Either my bags will be packed for transfers or packed to move flats!
This week we had exchanges with the Naitiri Elders, beforehand I was thinking who might go where and I thought I had it pretty well easily figured out but I prayed quite a bit about it and got a different answer than what I had thought- and the answer was for Elder Odundo (been out 5 weeks) coming to Mautuma to be with me and work together and Elder Kisekka to be with Elder Moline in Naitiri. All in all it went well and we were able to go see a less active with a member which was nice to find out where they stay and it turns out to be a part member family so I am looking forward to working with them.
This upcoming week we have exchanges again and I will be with Elder Dick in Mautuma which should be super fun.
This week we will be having the baptism for Francis- he is a referral from a member and he was a pastor in his former church for many years. He is really another Kingdom Builder being added to the branch. He is excited to join the church and really has been welcomed warmly to the branch as with all our investigators and recent converts. He is a great guy and everything we teach him he really agrees with and says this is how churches should be. He knows this is the true church which is awesome. He is a really humble guy and relies on the Lord a lot. He has referred his cousin and mom for us to start teaching.
