The Work is Progressing....

Hey family!!

Things are going good here and the work is progressing for sure!!  The new comp is doing well and is enjoying being here on mission!!  The training I think is going pretty well and things will continue to go well with him!!  This week has been pretty awesome and the Lord definitely prepares people for this gospel!!  This week we have about 7 people that have committed to a date for baptism and it is pretty amazing that we have found all these people!!  I am pretty excited to see if they will progress all the way!!  They all have a lot of potential too!!  For sure about 2 will be baptized on the 14th of this month which is coming up so it will be an awesome time!!  It is crazy to think that the half way mark has been hit but it is flying by I did not think i would get to this point this fast!!  I will see what I can do Thursday because we have a bunch of meetings for District leaders and trainers!!  It will be pretty interesting but we will see how it goes!! 

I have been talking to comps in the past and they are doing really well especially my trainer Mwambu he goes home in 4 months which is crazy I was his comp when he was only nine months!!  So interesting to see him almost home!!  The weather here is still up and down super-hot but super rainy all the day and when we walk out of the flats in the morning we are never sure what it is going to do!!  The rain clouds roll in so fast, it can be completely clear when you walk into a lesson and after 40 min there are dark clouds everywhere it is crazy!!  There have been a lot of funny things this week that has happened but everything is good!!  

There is not much going on here that is exciting though The branch is getting bigger which is really good and hopefully they will find a new meeting house because people are starting to have to stand which is really bad but it is good it is growing!!  Mondays there is not that much to do anymore so we spend most of our time emailing but we are working to find something productive to do!!  Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we can get something going!!  A store guy that sees me looking in his sports shop quite often wants to play bball with me at some point so maybe in the next week we can get that set up!!  Pictures should be in and they will all be uploaded by the time I am done emailing!!  Last week the comps were ready to go home and if one wants to go we all go because the taxi home is cheaper that way that is why I wasn’t able to go back and forth!!  Sorry that everyone is sick there hopefully you all will get feeling better and be able to return back to your normal activities!!  Also good luck to Katie and the teams to be able to do well this week!!  Love you all have a great week!!!
