Well it has gone from rainy and muddy to hot and sunny. Next week is transfers.
Zone conference in Eldoret was fantastic. I looked at the program and first thing that came to mind was Wow, this is inspired. I really enjoyed all of it. I learned a lot.
Elder Moline and I were on exchanges and we were able to do some very good work together and also have some fun. Since we are with Elder Odundo and Elder Moline often when we travel to Kitale, us 4 have become really close friends. On the exchange though, we were ripping down a path and I stopped to wait for Elder Moline for a second and I greeted some kid who was just coming from school, said something to Elder Moline then I turned and all I see is this kid booking it down the path. Then a scream/cry is coming from her. She was really fast..as we followed, she threw her bags and flip flops and ran even faster. Got to the bottom of the path where it meets the dirt road and her family was there and the kid was scared because we are both whites. It was pretty crazy.
Friday we received a referral from Elder Thomas from the system, and contacted him in the evening. Talked to him Saturday, and Sunday morning while we were getting ready for Church, he had arrived there over an hour and a half early on a motorcycle. He even bore his testimony in Church on Sunday. His name is Vincent, he is 27, a very nice guy, and we will be going to visit him on Saturday with the Branch Mission Leader and Branch President. He found out about the Church by chatting with a Sister Missionary in the States on Facebook. He says he will be there when we come and he has talked to all his friends he plays football with every week and they all want to meet us. He lives about a 2 hour bike ride away from the church in a place called Kipkarren.
We will be having a Baptism on Sunday for Doris- she is 26 years, from a part member family. Besides her, all of our investigators we are teaching have had to have their baptism dates pushed back to next transfer (Dec 21) because right now are exams in schools and most people we are teaching are still in school. So when schools close within the next 2 weeks we will be even more busy than we are now. I hope I stay to see many people baptized next transfer. We are teaching many and in this area there are so many people prepared by the Lord for us to teach.
