Hello. This week has been interesting and very nice week. On MONDAY, after emailing me and Elder Wilson had FHE at the church with the YSA. We were playing a game and Elder WIlson ended up running and somehow slipped at hurt his ankle. We think it was Heritier (a member that helps us teach a lot) that tackled him. haha. His ankle wasn't too good and it was swollen and Elder WIlson couldn't walk very well.
On TUESDAY....Elder WIlson had to take the day off and rest/ice his ankle so I went out with a member, Heritier, for the day. It was a fun day and Heritier is a funny guy. Also I got to drive for the day. I am getting pretty good at driving in Rwanda. ha.

It has been a really good week. This week I have learned that we need to be unified with others in our lives. Countless times in the Book of Mormon when the people are being righteous, having peace, thriving, etc. it says they are unified and as one. Right when they start becoming divided they become wicked and fall from the teachings of the gospel. We need to be unified as families,friends, members, and as people. Replace contention with LOVE and UNITY. Also I have learned a lot about missionary work this week and how everyone is a missionary and how we need to share this wonderful gospel and message that has blessed our lives so much to others. There is no greater responsibility. ANd in D&C 84:88 it promises us that as we share and teach others He will be on our right and on our left and we will have angels to bear us up. What a great promise. This week I ponderized D&C 121:45. Great Scripture.
We should be having 3 people baptized this week Peace, Miracle, And Heritier. (love those names!) They are siblings and are part of a family that was baptized 6 months ago. It should be a great week ahead. Thanks for the support and the prayers. I see the blessings everyday. Love you.
Love Elder Beck
Answer to Mom's question.....
1. (this might be a math question) So if you had 8 total missionaries in Rwanda with 4 missionaries in your apartment and 3 left Rwanda, where are the other 4 missionaries in rwanda ? Who stayed in rwanda of the 8 that were there?
ANSWER: 2 stayed in Kigali too, but they are in a different apartment in another part of town. 2 moved in our apartment and Elder Wilson came to be my companion and the Zone Leader. There are just 6 missionaries here and a senior couple right now. (I think I interpreted this correctly from him....maybe)
