Christmas was great! Just really getting needs today for those in Kainaba. And by the way to this point I have not been able to get my Christmas package from you still. We'll see if it is here today. The work is great and rewarding. This last week I was blessed to witness the baptism of Bwataua, Tietao, Ioane. Really cool baptism and the Spirit was there! We got a referral of a golden investigator. Really cool guy and he has the desire to be baptized by the 13th of January! My companion has the language down and I believe he is confident in speaking and he should be good when I leave at next transfer.
Quick Spiritual Thought for the week: Jacob 6:11 "O then, my beloved brethren, repent ye, and enter in at the strait gate, and continue in the way which is narrow, until ye shall obtain eternal life." We need to always repent to stay on the path that leads back to our Heavenly Father.
Sorry this is a short letter but this all the time I have today and I won't be on next week as I am spending Pday in Kainaba. Enjoy these pics! I cut hair also - if you can't tell - with a pair of sewing scissors.
