So my companion is Elder Phiri he is from Zimbabwe and is 28 years old and this first week with him has been so much fun! This man is the must humble person you have ever met! (He is the dark one in the selfie.) I actually forgot to take a good pic with him so ill send one next week! The other two in the pic is Elder Young USA and Elder Dlahmini From Swaziland! Also LAKE victoria practically surrounds us!!
So driving hear is insane, the lord is protecting me for sure. Only 4 close calls this week though so it was a good week! Here diesel is the cheaper fuel and petrol is expensive. It’s about $1 per liter! Entebbe has the state house here so for lack of a better term it’s like I’m in DC so lots of crazy drivers. The president of Uganda is my neighbor, and there’s some crazy cult that kills 19-30 year olds for sacrifices. So far there has been 38 confirmed murders last month.
Spiritually wise the Unit in Entebbe is strong! They meet in a house that the church rents and they love to help missionaries with the work. We can call anyone in the unit and they will try their level best to help us with out question! In the neighboring unit called Kajjansi an elder found a family of 25 people all living in the same house! So we had to drive out there to deliver some Book’s of Mormon so the whole family did not have to share one book!
I have been super busy this week and I have only been in Entebbe for less than a week so I don’t have too much to talk about for now.
I hope all is well I love you all!!
