|Future missionary in toothless form!|
Someday he'll go serve in the Uganda Kampala Mission
In honor of Elder Beck's one year mark, we are celebrating with pictures...see below
Hello! This week was great. We are seeing the blessings of hard work and obedience. ALso officially past 1year on mission going on the back side of 2 years. Crazy! Time has flown by and it is weird to think back 1 year ago and think of what was going on. Felt like yesterday.This week started of a little slower, but we had a good day. There is only 1 problem here in Uganda. People they don't understand time very much. We were teaching Benard, who is suppose to get baptized this week, and he fed us and man he took forever. So we had to make it a quick lesson so we could go do other things that we had planned. haha. They are great people here, but they don't understand time too much. haha. (sounds like a farmer!) ALso it rained today,. So that was nice.
we said goodbye to Elder Roylance in the morning and so we were with Elder Chifamba for a few hours. We visited some RC's and then we tried meeting with this new guy, but he kept saying he was in a certain place, but he wasn't there. It ends up that me and him were at different hospitals. hahaha. Ooops. WE still ended up meeting him later in the week so that is good. We also met the new missionary in our district. His name is Elder Dibatyi. He is from DRC Congo man! He is an awesome guy. He has a French accent and is a great missionary. I went golfing with him before.
1. Do you all feel safe? Anybody try to rob you ? Do you take your passports AND such with you. How does that work?
Ya i feel safe. NObody has tried robbing me. We don't take our passports, but we carry a copy of it. (I think they keep the originals in the mission office safe)
2. Did you do something to celebrate your 1 year mark? We moved in your honor!!
No not really I didn't know what to do. I was also really tired. hahaha.
