Well this week has been an awesome week for me personally and it also has been a good week as far as the success of the work. It has been great for me because of the things I'm learning and seeing myself change as I apply the gospel in my life and am being obedient. I'm growing so much and in turn being able to really help people. It brings me a lot of joy serving and loving the people here! My love for people has grown so much. I'm growing closer to my Heavenly Father. I'm growing closer to my Savior. I'm also growing closer to the Spirit and learning to listen to it's promptings. There have been so many blessings that I have noticed from coming out here and I am so grateful for them. This week we have been having progress with Earl and Ambrose. Earl has been having faithfully coming to church with his family for a while now. He wants to be baptized in this church with his whole family. The only thing that is holding him back is his testimony. He needs to find out for himself and get on his knees and sincerely pray for an answer. It's been hard to find time to teach him with his schedule but the few times we were able to they were really good and I think he finally understands what he needs to do. With Ambrose I've been noticing some big changes. He has been working hard to quit smoking but recently I noticed an increased motivation to do so. He has started reading the book of mormon and he came to church this week! It made me so happy to see the joy on his face from being there. I love you guys very much and hope you each have a great week!
Hey I forgot about something that is very important and exciting! We have transfers every 6 weeks and so with this being week 8 and having 2 weeks in the mtc this week is transfer week. But those being trained like me they stay with their trainer for 12 weeks or 2 transfers. I got a call though this week from President Herrington. He told me that there are brand new missionaries coming into the mission this transfer and said I will not be continuing my training with Elder Odhiambo but will now be training a new missionary myself! His name is Elder Whipple and he is from Utah. He will be arriving on the island on Wednesday and from there I start training him. Crazy!
