Whelp another week. This week was rough for me and Elder Anim (pic 2). None of our investigators are serious. After 25 new investigators (all via knocking doors) none of them came to the return appointments, so yeah sad week. But we had a conference where I was able to meet Elder Chandler and Sister Ng’Ang’A who were in the MTC with me and so we are all going to go home the same time.
Well after that we went to a meeting with some leaders of the church who are over all South Kampala and that meeting even bounced us… basically nothing went as planned.
What I think the Lord wanted me to learn and still learn is what we learn from Enos in the book of Mormon first in verses 6-7 he learns what faith in the Lord is. In 10-11 Enos has another problem in which the lord fixes for him. And finally in 12 he is faced with a 3rd problem that the Lord fixes. In each verse we read that Enos “struggles/labors” in prayer. So the lord presents us with problems over and over to see if we will struggle through the problem, or give up. If we endure the trial we get blessings. If we give up we either learn nothing. Or the same problem comes back until we learn from it.
Hope you all have a good week! Love you all!
