Joseph got a new companion.
Elder Brown is From Queen Creek Arizona, a Small town in the Phoenix valley. He has been on his mission for 3 months, his first area was in Mombasa, and so far seems to be liking it a lot!
He is the 2nd oldest of 5 kids and has been a member all of his life.He says that both sides of his family have pretty much been members since the Pioneers. He Enjoys weight lifting, especially with his brother, and played football in high School.
He Cleaned Bounce houses during the summers to pay for his mission and is striving to be the best he can. (He also has learned Swahili better then I have.
I like him a lot and hope together we will be able to Move the Work forward here in Kyambeke.
Well Dec 19th is Clearly the Superior Day to have Birthdays :P
Evalee, interesting name, is she named after anyone? (side question what is Shauna's new last name? I forgot)
Also its cool that Isiah got on to the Fire department, that will be good for him I think.
I will Try ("NO! Try Not, Do or Do not. There Is no Try." -Yoda) to remember the Importance of my calling and do my best to bring the power of the priesthood into the homes that we visit.
Elder Brown is a Great guy and we were able to do a lot of good things this week. Most notable was we have finally been able to set up times for us to have all of our meetings with the Branch leaders. In Ilima they haven't had PEC or Ward Council in a LONG time, but we meet with some of the leaders and they were very humble and willing to listen to our Suggestions on the subject so they are going to start having them this next month, the first one is Scheduled for the 5th of Feb.
We also have been working with the Primary president to find the homes of several children that come to Church but haven't been baptized yet, there are 5 of them and we think we know where they all live now although we have only met with one of them. We are shooting to have them all Baptized on the 19th of feb. so wish us luck!
I Love you Guys :)
