Week 69: Inviting YOU to "Come & See"

Still here in Dar es Salaam with Elder Muthoni. A few changes in the zone, but the cool thing is when I was in Kyambeke Kenya (the Hills), Linda (now Sis. Mayoli) who was the sister who came to our mission prep class who later got called to the Kenya Nairobi Mission, is back from the Mission Training Center, and now in the zone here. So that is pretty cool and it should be cool to see everyone Wednesday at our District Meeting.

Pretty alright week, just finding and teaching people about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! Had quite a few investigators come to Church and hopefully will be having a baptism this Sunday or next of an older lady who is so devoted to the church. She was a referral and is awesome.

For the first time I read the talk 'Come and See' by Elder Bednar from the last conference and I want EVERY person who is reading this who is not a member to read or listen to it. No matter about any belief you have, church you attend, or the lack thereof. He has a funny story and ties everything in really well. Just take a few short minutes and open the mind and read it. Here is the link..

Letters- remember to write 'VIA AIRMAIL" on them.

Packages- if I do leave Dar es Salaam anytime it will be a bit of a problem if one arrives. Although receiving them here is a WORLD of a lot cheaper and easier than Kenya. The best thing to use is small bubble mailers only, or Pringles cans, for the rest of my mission. No boxes. Then they will come to the PO Box and the couples can easily bring them and we don't have to go downtown and fetch it. But I am good on everything!  So thank you.

One funny thing is with all the secondhand clothes here, I have seen a lot of Boy Scout shirts (all the people in the US who didn't quite make it to Eagle and gave up too early). A member told me that here they call them 'combat' shirts and people like wearing them. Hahahaha thought that was interesting.

Is the rain season over? It hasn't rained since those pics I sent, just HOT and humid! Haha the sun shines here like it is not ever going to shine again.

Will try to send some pictures from the last 2 weeks!
