I tried to post this on the bus going to work, but the wi-fi wasn’t up to it. Anyway, here’s what he had to say this week:
Hey Y’all and a special howdy to Daniel for emailing his own thing.
We had exchanges with the district leader on Wednesday. This time I went with the DL’s comp into their area. They cover the Swahili branches in the valley so that was fun. We dropped by this lady at work and it turns out her vending machine was broken. She had spent the last 8 hour trying to fix it and we figured it out in 20 min. In thanks she gave us a couple of drinks.
Yesterday we taught in a combined priesthood and relief society class. Then the ward mission leader came up after us. His lesson was titled “doing missionary work the hard way.” I really liked it. He basically said to bring people to the gospel there are three things involved. You have to respect their Agency, have Charity, and bring the Spirit. That’s basically what the mission has been talking about this whole time.
Then we hurried over to help teach a combined YM/YW group in one of our focus wards. That was pretty good too.
So, I’m planning on talking with Pres about maybe Skyping on mothers day, but don’t plan on it yet.
Gotta go. I love y’all.
