Week 78: Six Months Left to Serve My Mission

Sister Eveson goes home today. Well . . . if I was a Sister missionary I would be flying home now, as 18 months have passed. But I am grateful I have another 6 more months to serve the Lord.

Just a few things because of time-

Mama Patrick was baptized along with Daniel yesterday. We weren't sure if Daniel would make it by this week but all the right things happened and he was interviewed and passed and was baptized! He is the first member in his family- 22ish years old and we have a great relationship with their family and hopefully we can continue to teach all of them- despite them staying reallly far from our area.

This week we had a powerful District Meeting, counseling about the question 'How can we endure to the end of our missions better?' I listed all the problems of why it might be hard on a board then we came up for solutions for all. It seems lots of the mission is getting closer to going home with not many new Elders and Sisters coming in- and after October it will be pretty small.

Did you hear Obama is planning on going to Kenya in June?
Yup, that will be interesting with events that have been happening.

Did you hear about Obama meeting with the First Presidency and some of the 12 Apostles?
Yeah I saw it on Mormon Newsroom- and it's because they counseled in the Lord's way. If nations could be run that way, we would see changes and improvement.

The picture is of Mama Patrick and Daniel.

Love you all!

Love Elder Eveson

Much love from the KNM
