We had interviews with the Mission President this week and it was amazing. I use those interviews to show me my growth on mission and this one I just felt so good. And I learned a ton! President Erickson is so inspired. The whole concept of 'no-tracting' that he introduced is being applied by many of the surrounding missions and the area presidency and the brethren are taking note of it and really like what President is doing.
We didn't have much time in the area this week because there was another giant transfer..we had 10 new missionareis come into the mission. One of them is in my district, Elder Tippets. He's the epytomy of a greenie Utah missionary. Also after transfers were all done, Elder Madilu had to go to the hospital because he was having pain in what he thought was his heart. Turned out it could be ulcers or else some other esauphagus issue. He can't eat hot chilli peppers right now as it heals and that is enough to depress him ahah Congolese love chili. But he's doing much better now.
We got a Church Headquarters referral this week! 1st one of
my mission! I remember when I was in Malawi and would read about such things as
Church HQ referrals I would basically scoff. Well we got one and have started
teaching him (Peter )and his family and they're doing amazing! His son and his
uncle came to church on Sunday but Peter was unable because his wife is a
stroke patient and is unable to move her right side of the body and can't speak
so the maid wasn't coming until 1500hrs so he couldn't make it. But they're all
reading the BOM and really progressing but it's only the 1st week!
