Wow what a week this has been! It has been packed with fun and disaster. I can tell you it has been different living with other elders, but it also makes it nice because everyone helps each other. I really like how everyone in our house is really obedient. I definitely can tell that we are being blessed as a district because of it. The work is progressing and investigators are making progress - so rewarding and so exciting to witness. I will work better at trying to get photos - it is just hard sometimes because there is nothing exciting to take pictures of. Well.... our house has been sick this last week with migraines and tonsillitis. Thank goodness I haven't had those....
Physical Highlight of the Week:
We just finished our blitz in the Sisters area (of the ward), and we were on our way back and were going to catch a bus. Well the cement over the sewer system/ drainage system has holes big enough to fit my foot through. Well what do you know? I stepped into one perfectly causing me to fall on to my wrist hard. I attached a picture of what it looked like on Wednesday. Thank goodness it is not broken! But do have say it is sprained - might even have bruised the ligaments.
Spiritual Highlight of the week:
We were finally able to get a time with this investigator named Bwerea and her husband - who is a less active - Rataro. Such a neat family! They made comments to us that they want us there and they want to learn more about the gospel. He stated, Rataro, that he wants to come back. I can say that patience brings blessings even if we don't see them first hand. I testify He lives and because of that so can we. I testify of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
