I AM HAPPY!! I AM BLESSED!!! LIFE IS WONDERFUL!!
WE HAVE CONTINUED TO BE SO BLESSED WITH PEOPLE TO TEACH!! WITH PREPARED SOULS!! CONSTANTLY, PEOPLE COME UP TO US ASKING TO BE TAUGHT!!! WE STOPPED CONTACTING PEOPLE BECAUSE OUR TEACHING POOL IS TO BIG AND WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME FOR MORE PEOPLE! YET THEY STILL COME AND WE END UP ALWAYS HAVING ENOUGH TIME!!! LIFE IS WONDERFUL!!
I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT TO SAY!! THIS WEEK HAS JUST BEEN FILLED WITH SO MANY BLESSINGS!! LIKE LITERALLY WE HAVE 3 INVESTIGATORS NAMED “BLESSINGS” (MADALITSO) NOW!! SO LIFE PRETTY MUCH ROCKS!!! I LOVE MY COMPANIONS SO MUCH!! THEY HELP ME WANT TO DO MY BEST!!! THEY ARE WONDERFUL EXAMPLES TO ME!!! I DON’T KNOW HOW TO EXPRESS MY WEEK!! I WILL SEND PICTURES AND YOU CAN ALL THANK SISTER ANDREA COLE FOR THEM! SHE MADE ME!!!
HERE IS A FUNNY STORY:
ABOUT AN HOUR AGO WE WERE TEACHING A LESSON AND AT THE END WE ASKED IF THE LITTLE BOY WOULD END IN A PRAYER FOR US! HE IS 5!! HIS NAME IS HOPESON AND HE SPEAKS NO ENGLISH! HE BOWED HIS HEAD AND CROSSED HIS FINGERS BY HIS FACE AND THEN BROKE OUT INTO SONG!!! ALL I HEARD WAS A LOT OF “ZIKOMO KWAMBILI MULUNGU NIDI YESU KHRISTU.” ( THANK YOU VERY MUCH GO AND JESUS CHRSIT!) THEN AT THE END OF HIS 45 SECOND SONG TO GOD HE YELLS “MULUNGU!!!” (GOD) AND THROWS HIS HANDS UP!!! THEN HE PROCEEDS TO CLAP FOR HIMSELF!!! HAHA! CHILDREN HERE ARE THE BEST!!! WE WERE ALL LAUGHING DURING HIS PRAYER!!! IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER!!!
DURING THE WHOLE LESSON HOPESON WOULD GRAB MY PAMPHLET OUT OF MY HANDS AND POINT TO THE PICTURE OF JESUS AND SAY “YESU KHRISTU!!!!!” HE IS SO FUNNY!!!

CONVERSATION WITH SISTER SOLOMONE:
ME: OH NO!!! THAT LITTLE GIRL CAN’T WALK!!!! SHE IS TRYING TO SEE THE CAMERA BUT IT IS OUT OF HER REACH!! ALL THE OTHER KIDS ARE LOOKING!!! SHE CANT SEE!!!! I WANT TO PICK HER UP BUT I CAN’T… MISSIONARY RULES…
SISTER SOLOMONE: WHAT WOULD JESUS DO!?
ME: PICK HER UP!!!!
THEN I DID!!! AND I AM GLAD!! I HELD THE LITTLE GIRL FOR 30 MINS BECAUSE I DIDNT WANT TO SEE HER CRAWLING AROUND IN THE DIRT!! IT MADE ME TOO SAD!!!
LOVE YOU ALL,
YOUR HAPPY AND BLESSED MISSIONARY
MULONGO NAMBEWE! (ALSO GOES BY SISTER BROWNING)
P.S. LIFE IS WONDERFUL!! WITH TRIALS AND BLESSINGS! DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST IS TRUE!

TWO THINGS HAPPENED:

ONE: I CAME TO APPRECIATE THE BIBLE MORE!! IT SHOWED ME JUST HOW MUCH I USE IT!! EVEN THOUGH IT IS ALWAYS IDEAL TO TEACH OUT OF THE BOOK OF MORMON THE BIBLE IS SO POWERFUL AND A WONDERFUL TOOL AS WELL!!

TWO, MY TESTIMONY AND FAITH IN THE BOOK OF MORMON INCREASED!! I HAD TO FIND SCRIPTURES THAT APPLY TO THINGS AND I HAD TO RELY ON THE LORD SO MUCH TO DO IT!! I LOVE THE SCRIPTURES!!
