Week 90: Small Changes make a Big Difference

Lots of things happening and a busy week but just something short--

This week we were able to go to Fredrick's place as he works selling secondhand jeans on the side of the road, and we have known for him a while from just passing by on the way to places. Great guy and we started talking with him one day, and it turns out he is a Civil Engineer but couldn't find any work so he settled with selling jeans.

He is a great guy, great family man. They are all Roman Catholic but we were finally able to sit down with him and his family and talk about all the questions he and his family had for us about the Church, the Gospel and us. He is married and has 2 kids. We are looking forward to meeting them more.

Church switching to 10am has really made a big difference and it has only been 2 Sundays so far. And with the switch from Sacrament from last to first, now people are actually staying all 3 hours and coming on time. We had 36 men in Priesthood class including nonmembers and 30 of them were in white shirts was powerful- I was used to starting at 9am with the missionaries, branch presidency and 2 members-one of whom was the teacher.

Tomorrow we are headed to Nairobi for Mission Leadership Council on Wednesday, then back Thursday!

What is street boarding?
Not sure how it got the name, but basically put a table outside on the street with flyers and a board with pictures and give everyone a pamphlet who passes by and invite them to church. Basically just contacting.

Have a great week!!

Love Elder Eveson

Much love from the KNM
