08/10/15 Week of a thousand mzungus

This week was powerful in the land of Kayole, Kenya.  Elder Griffiths and I are enjoying our time together, and we are seeking the Lord's guidance in every aspect of the work.  Zone Conference was this week, you know what that means?  KFC:)  ha ha.  Great food, both spiritually and physically.  We talked a lot about "Street Boarding"  which is basically putting out a table on the street and giving out books.  Elder G and I have seen a lot of success doing it.  So, we will continue.

As some of you may know, our curfew is 7 pm.  Well, one day, we were a bit late, and the Lord decided to scare us a bit.  We were trying to get home from an appointment and it was about 7:15.  There was no matatu where there usually is one, so we started flagging down person cars.  Car after car went by and no luck.  Eventually one pulled over and opened the door for us.  We hopped in and before we knew it, we were in the care with the most devout Muslim man I have ever seen.  Long beard and everything.  He told us he was from Mogadishu, Somalia which is basically the terror capital of Africa  That was definitely interesting.  However, he was a great guy!  Very friendly.  He even asked about what we believe ad we were able to teach him a little about the Book of Mormon.  We made it home safe as well.

We met some returned missionaries from Ogden, Utah.  They are here doing some service activity or something.  Last week we went and played basketball with them and today we went to a nice American restaurant for lunch with them.  Their names are Ty, Kaylie and Lindsey.  They are powerful.!  It was cool meeting with some homies.  It was also cool playing basketball, although I got blisters all over my feet.  haha
