Hello, This week flew by and it was a great week.
It started off when we visited a family that we were teaching. Me and Elder Dibatayi ......and I was set on setting a baptism date with them before I left. They had been hesitant to do that. So we got there and shared a thought and I committed them and they felt like that is what they were suppose to do! It is awesome! The Lord is softening hearts and changing people everyday!we visited a lot of people and said goodbye. It wasn't easy and then i got a call I was getting picked up in the evening instead of . SO I had to leave early and got picked up and spent the night in Kampala.

This week I have been studying the words of Nephi at the end of second Nephi. His words are really there to strengthen our faith in Christ. They are so simple yet so powerful. And lately I have been working on increasing my faith and testimony of Jesus CHrist. Jesus is the very Christ and he has paid for us and he is inviting everyone to partake of his goodness and salvation. 2 Nephi 25:26, 2 Nephi 26:33.

1.What is the craziest thing you have witnessed on your mission?
The craziest thing I have witnessed is when they circumcise someone from a certain tribe. they do it at the age of 18 and they go around town with drums and loud things with the kid in a loin cloth preparing for his circumcision. Crazy... (OUCH!!!)
