Dear Friends and Family,
On Wednesday, Elder Mair and I got picked up by the Zone Leaders and sat at the AP's flat in Ntinda to wait for transfers. I got to catch up with Elders Langford, Farnsworth, and Elder Hatch. We haven't been together since the first day in Uganda so that was super neat to be able to be with them! I then loaded up all my stuff in the AP van, and we drove an hour and a half out of the city into the bush.
My new district is the youngest in the mission. I'm with Elder Ward, Elder Ray, and Elder Dowdle is my new companion. Elder Ward is from Lone Peak so, it's a pretty small world. Elder Ray is from Oregon and has been at BYU for the past year. He's an amazing cook so we are going to all make a Thanksgiving feast in 2 weeks with a turkey and everything...so don't worry, I'll be celebrating out here too:) Elder Dowdle is from Pocatello Idaho and is a stud. He already has a great handle on missionary work. I sometimes forget he's a transfer younger than me!
Like in Kololo, we have young ward missionaries who work with us on a regular basis. The one who works with us most is named Emmanuel and was baptized like two months ago, but is already preparing for a mission. He's a stud! Next Saturday and Sunday, I get the opportunity to watch conference again because they haven't seen it out here yet. And in 2 weeks, the branch is going to Jinja to see the Jinja stake organized. We're all super excited for that. It'll make 2 stakes in Uganda with a 3rd following soon. This next week, we are planning for 2 baptisms. I'll talk more about it next week. I love you all!
