It is awesome here in Rwanda. I am getting more comfortable with everything here. I learn so much every week. It has been raining quite a bit since I got here. The work is really exciting. Elder Empey and I hope both of us stay put after transfers, especially him. as we have a really exciting transfer coming up with hopefully around 6+ baptisms.
After reading about Moroni lately I have learned how we can never stop preparing even if we feel we are prepared enough. Prepare and Learn. Also I liked 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 and how we need to walk by faith rather than sight because none of us have a perfect knowledge of everything, but we have the faith that we know enough and that Heavenly Father will take care of the rest after we do all that we can do. Also I have been trying to have the influence of the Holy Ghost more in my life. We have to be obedient and also be looking for and feeling for the Holy Ghost at all times. It has really made a difference in my days. I also learned that I am one of the 50 first missionaries here in Rwanda. 44 or something like that. The church is really young here and also at a really exciting time. Thanks for the prayers and letters. Love you.
ANSWERS TO MOM'S QUESTIONS....
DOES ANYONE TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN 1994 IN RWANDA?Here in Rwanda we don't usually directly talk to people about the Genocide. It is to touchy a subject for some people
WHAT DO YOU MISS?
Halloween sounds fun and I miss the candy. I also miss the cool weather. It isn't necessarily really hot here with the rain, but I miss the crisp cool days and nights for sure, but I can't complain too much.
HAVE YOU EATEN ANYTHING STRANGE?
I haven't eaten anything too strange, but I have eaten Matoke. It is cooked green bananas. They remind me of potatoes.
WHERE ARE YOUR SANDALS? I DIDN'T SEE THEM IN YOUR PICTURE? I forgot my sandals that day so don't worry.
WHO DID YOU BAPTIZE AND WHO'S WHO IN THE LAST PHOTOS? I baptized Kellen (sounds like Keran). She is the mother.
WHO IS THE FUN RANDOM GUY IN LAST WEEKS PICTURES? I think you are talking about Kennedy. He is just a member and doesn't speak any English at all. He is really funny guy.
|Kennedy? in the striped shirt|
WHAT IS THE CARD GAME ERC? Egyptian Rat Crew or something like that. Ask Eryn or natalie they might now. You try to get all the cards and it is a slapping game.
Thanks as always for the update from home. I love reading It and I love you too.
