Week 80: "Members" not Members? Let's change that!

Good evening-- or morning or afternoon (depending where in the world you are when you read this)

Transfer news is this evening, lots of changes will be happening with quite a few elders leaving today for home and the mission so small. But as for me and my companion, I think one of us will be leaving- but you never know what the Lord has in store. I love Kinondoni and TZ in general and would stay here my whole mission if I could..Maybe Arusha is next? No idea.

We are doing well, one thing is this week we found out two people who are always at church since I have been here but have yet to be baptized. They are so humble and more faithful than some of the members when it comes to church attendance! We truly thought they are members! We are looking forward to teaching them more, although they know a lot about the church and the teachings already and their brother and sister in law whom they live with are strong members in the gospel. They are all originally from Zimbabwe.

Everyone was in Ubungo on Saturday and Sunday as we watched the Sat and Sun sessions of general conference. Very powerful counsel was given throughout. If you missed any of it I would advise to go back through it! I liked how much was said regarding the family and all the things that impressed me that I can work on. Although none of our investigators were able to make it, this week they should be at church this Sunday as everything will be back to normal.

We celebrated Elder Ojjogolo's early birthday today with the zone at the couples and it seems like everyone is doing great, just awaiting transfer news this evening.


Do you like Swahili? Yeahh a lot. Super cool language.

Do you have an oven? Ever make cookies? Yeah actually we do in this flat. And I made some cookies last Monday but it only got to the phase of the batter before it was all eaten.

How are things in the Mission Field? Fantastic

Still getting lots of referrals? A few here and there

How is English class going? Great. Had like 12 people last week there for it

Any more Gospel discussions? Yup!

Do you do much proselyting / tracting? Yup

Any beach time lately? Nope

Do you still go to the gym? Yup

How is Nicole? Ha- fantastic.

How is attendance overall? A normal Sunday anywhere from 60-80 people

How many members are in the mission? MormonNewsroom states as of the beginning of 2014 there were 12,471 in Kenya and in Tanzania 1,336. Over a year ago though.

Well, until next weeeeeek! Love you all and thanks for your prayers!

Mzee Eveson, signing out from TZ. Have a good night.

Much love from the KNM

The best food is cooked from this exact kitchen that you see -- overhead view with Mama cooking yesterday.  Every Sunday night.
