Sounds like Oregon and Utah football teams are tearing it up!
With getting back to our area Wednesday morning, and not working Sunday after church because of my companion being sick, we were able to have 22 lessons Wednesday through Saturday which I thought was alright. Working hard feels really good. This transfer feels as if it has gone really fast.
My companion and I are really busy with all the people we have to teach and when we contact we keep finding new people to teach then it is hard finding time for them. Trying to balance everything just right. It seems like everyone and their mamas want us to teach them, which has been a big blessing.
Friday my companion and I split and each went with a member which was sweet- got a lot done.
I have been studying a bit out of the book Teachings of the Prophets Brigham young and a section I really like is Preventing Personal Apostasy. Really applies to some things happening in the branch here.
Wednesday is zone conference so that'll be fun. After zone conference we will be doing exchanges with the Naitiri Elders so I'm looking forward to that- I'll be with Elder Moline. Then exchanges with the Kitale Elders week 6 for baptism interviews. On a sidenote the Misikhu branch met in their chapel for the first time yesterday- not sure when the dedication will be but I hope I am still in this zone for it.
The first Sister missionary ever from the branch is leaving tomorrow for the MTC- then coming to serve in the Kenya Nairobi Mission which is sweet.
Not much else to report on, but Saturday night I did 1000 jump rope in 7:11 which was the exact same time as my previous so then my companion tried and he was around 8 minutes then I wanted to break 7 minutes so I tried again and 7:09 so I thought there's some improvement. Then my companion went again and did 1000 more in 6:58, and I was like no way I'm going to bed without beating 7 minutes so I did a 3rd set of 1000 and got it in 6:18. We got to bed a little late but after 3000 skips I felt good. One year left to sexy.
