This week we had zone conference which was fantastic. It went very well. I learned so much. So much. President Hicken is an inspired man called of God to preside over and teach us. Then after ZC we finally got the chance to see Meet the Mormons! Wow they did a great job on that film. A great job getting the word out on who we really are and some things we believe and know to be true. Everyone should watch it! All 6 stories were great, but the last one really hit home. From the guy getting his mission call, to the wait, to the South Africa MTC, to going to Durban. Wow. Sounds like me.
It was great to have the Arusha and Mwanza Elders here for zone conference, just lots of logistics and the week was over before it even started haha. Only in the Kenya Nairobi Mission!
Church was great on Sunday, the District Presidency is focusing on the Kinondoni branch this February, and it seems like quite a bit has gotten done the last few weeks with regards to filling callings which will be very nice. Lots of people have been at church these last 2 weeks and the work is really picking up.
On top of all that, we had the baptism for Sister Lucy- she is 60 years old and has been to church so many times. She was a referral from a neighboring recent convert who is her best friend.
Something I just thought of and sent to Elder Moline a few minutes ago that I thought I would share with all of you--
"You know how we came out on Oct 17? Man the 17th of every month just keeps flying by, we only have a few more until we are home. Make em count. 8 months left!" Crazy or whaaat..
How is your Swahili coming along? It's coming
