December 8, 2014

Wow its already December... last month of the year!

Not a bad week.

So this week we had our ZTM Zone training meeting), and it went ok  for the most part.  We discussed the things we talked about at MLC, and we mainly focused on 3 topics: 1) How to increase trust between  zone leaders and zone members.   2) How to improve our councils.  3) How to be more diligent as missionaries.  With increasing trust and improving our councils, both topics went over pretty well. Everyone was pretty understanding and gave in good input, and we were able to put ideas together to what we could all do to  improve.  With the part of diligence, that is just something that Elder Harris and I thought would be good to discuss, being something that we feel our zone is struggling with. But it went pretty well.

After ZTM we were able to go on exchanges with the Riruta Elders, so elder Musasia and I went to Riruta to be with Elder Njuguna.  It was a pretty good exchange.  They are doing ok that side, still trying to figure out the area and trying to find out where people stay.  Persecution out there is pretty intense.  We ran into some pretty interesting people who were not happy to see us... it was interesting. 

Also this week we were able to meet with Bro Gerrald.  We thought that he had disappeared, because every time we called him or tried to arrange an appointment, his phone could not be reached. But  this week we got a call from him  and he said that he wanted to meet with us.  So we met and asked him how things were going with him.  He said that he went to Kyambeke for some time to be with his family and that he was attending the services there.  So we talked, and we felt ok to still have him be baptized on the 14th, this next week.  We have been able to review a few of the lessons with him and we feel like he is still doing good. 

This week we got 3 referrals on Sunday! All from one member.  They are all boarding students who are back from school, all of them have met with missionaries before and already have a pretty good understanding of the church. Even the member who gave us the referrals is a RM and lives with all the referrals she gave us.  So we have talked with here and she will be able to teach a few of the lessons to help us out.   So I'm excited about this! It should be good and we hope to have some more baptisms at the end of the month. 

Also this week we were able to have Sis Nifred confirmed! Only took 3 weeks after the baptism to have it done but I'm happy she is now a full member and has the gift of the Holy Ghost.  She is awesome!
Not to much interesting for this week.  but things are going ok. 
love you all!
