Yo Mom and Dad!
Okay, so this week has just totally flown by so quickly. It seems like the days and weeks as of recent are just going, we're already halfway through this transfer!
Anyway, this week wasn't too busy. Alot of appointments falling through, and what not, but as a result it just forced us to be talking with everyone and trying to contact. Most of this area is large compounds with massive gates to defend the Kings inside...lol.
There is one girl we've been teaching alot. She stays with a member, and she is receiving the Gospel really well which is awesome. We've just recently been teaching her the commandments and she is scheduled for baptism later in the month. That's exciting for us! Should be the first baptism in Sakumono.
As for the rest of the people we have been teaching Bro Emmanuel, we havn't been able to see. Each week his shifts for his work change so this past week he worked days so we were unable to see him. Hopefully this week though we can. He is doing well though, we gave him a bible and Book of Mormon which I believe he has been reading when he gets time.
As for me I've started reading alot of the Book of Mormon again during my studies. As I've been reading from the book of Ether I've been learning alot about Faith. I love so much the faith and trust the brother of Jared had in the Lord as he led his small group of family and friends to the Promised land. I've observed that without faith there simply is nothing we can really do. However with Faith, there is nothing that we cannot do if the Lord commands it. I pray that we can all strive to increase our faith in the Lord, in his commandments and in the blessings that we will receive when we obey and follow him.
Elder Kallon this past week has been pretty sick which hasn't been good. On Friday we gave him a blessing, and gradually he's been getting better. It's nothing too bad, he thought it was malaria, but he's doing better and is on the mend.
Praying and hoping for success this week. We're going to do our best to see as many people as we can. Until then, we will keep on opening our mouth and be doing our best to be instruments in the hand of the Lord. I'm grateful for his continuous support in strengthening and uplifting us to qualify to do his work.
Hope you's have a great week though Mom and Dad! Cant believe we're in November already!
