Beck and Phiri!!  Comps!

I guess I will tell a bit about the week as well. So this week was a straight up Supa NIce Week! We re-vamped our efforts and saw some great blessings come our way. We did some powerful finding and tried to make it finding full of faith! We found and talked to a lot of people this week and the lord blessed us with some people to teach! One of them we met on wednesday and taught them on Thursday. Their names are Charles and Phibi. They are a humble familiy with one little baby. We had a wonderful lesson with them and at the end of the lesson I asked how the feel right now..... Charles said" I feel that the church of Jesus Christ is True!" He came to church on Sunday and is going to bring the rest of the family next Sunday!
THe other one was from pushing water out of our house last week( if you can remember). I contacted the guy that was helping us push the water out and we met with him on Friday and his family. We had a great lesson and they were asking some inspired questions. They didn't come to church, but promised to this Sunday. SO let us hope and pray for them. 2 great families that the lord has blessed us with this week. Teaching a husband and wife and children together is simply the best experience on mission, especially when they are all understanding together!
the kiddos all want their picture taken!!! cute!

Security guard!  I think they are teaching him

p-day w elders and sisters!

Other things that happened. On thursday in the morning we did some sweet digging for a member in the rain and she fed us some nice Pork and Cassava!On sunday we had a wonderful fast and testimony Sunday! WE even had one of our investigators ( the same one that was saying hallelujah last fast Sunday) come again and bear his testimony. His name is David and he is getting baptized this Sunday. He is a great man. He bore his testimony again. He told us what JESUS stands for. IT stands for Jesus Eye Saving Us Seriously! hahahaha. So funny. (oh my!!  lol!))  Seriously! He is a great man and we hope he is ready for his baptism...........
Today we even had a district activity to say goodbye to E. Malaza who is going back to South Africa this week. It was fun and E. Malaza is a great missionary and is a great example to me of hard work until the end and making mission fun. i WILL miss that guy...........

buh bye!  miss ya!

This week was a great week and something that I thought about and learned about a lot was SERVICE! I was studying the words of King Benjamin about service in the book of Mormon and also on Sunday we talked about SERVICE in Priesthood Class. SERVICE is truly one of the greatest medicine's. If you are sad or disappointed or depressed go and SERVE someone and help someone! You will be happy and overcome those sicknesses. I also like a quote from Gordon B. Hinckley "if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves!" Wow! Let us think more of others and truly lose ourselves in the SERVICE of others! I have never been happier than as I have served as a missionary, serving others and the lord. It is because of SERVICE to others! Have a great week. Love you.
Love Elder Beck

Mom note..... he is sooooo happy  :) :) :)  I've never seen him soooooo happy!  Service is the key!   Duly noted. Time to implement.

1.  Do you have a senior couple in your area? How many senior couples in the mission?

No we don't have a senior couple. There are 3 Senior couples in the mission. ONe for each country..... We could use some more.  WANTED.....more senior couples!  Apply now!  (YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!! DO IT!!)

2.  Do you usually drink water or what beverage?

I usually drink water, but sometimes soda and passion fruit juice is good as well. I am going to stop drinking soda my last 2 transfers though.

3. What kind of activities do you have there for the youth?  We just got done with an awesome girls camp!!

I am glad young womens camp went well. It is weird here. They don't have much youth and don't do many activities because of the lack of numbers and coordination. It is amazing seeing how different a ward functions at home and then here in a relatively new ward with new members of the church. It is amazing how strong the church is and how it has grown from the Early saints.

more beauty of Uganda
