Fun facts

There are a lot of fun facts in Kenya.  Like if you get sentenced to 1 year in prison it is really 6 months because they count day and night.  You aren't allowed to carry something you have just bought without a bag because it will offend the rest of the people that see you carrying it because they don't have it.  Kenyans believe that the Garden of Eden was in Kenya.  Just a bunch of facts.  (They also use adjectives twice to add emphasis.  Mimi ni mkneya:)

This week was good in Kayole.  We gave a couple people baptismal dates so that is exciting.  This is Elder Griffith's last p-day on a mission, weird eh?  We went and bought ourselves a burger to celebrate.  Oh, a random guy just came in and tried to sell us socks in the cyber cafe by shoving them in our faces and shaking them.  Anyway, our week was good.  Gosh I love Kenya and the Gospel of Christ.  The two are in the process of becoming a match.

Spiritual thought time.
This is a power teaching that I learned from my companion.  All of us are entitled to guidance and revelation in our lives from the Spirit.  We can look at 3 scriptural examples that help us to see the reality of the fact.  The Lord has, for some reason, built many boats in His day.   He helped Nephi do it, helped Noah do it and even Mahonri Moriancumer. He gave them all guidance.  All three of them were in a completely different situation, but all three of them sough revelation form the Lord and His Spirit.  He taught each one of them how to build and the result was a ship, every time.  The three ships were different in size and shape but they were all ships.  the Lord knows how to help us, and if we seek his guidance in our lives, he knows what size and type of ship we need.  This has been one of the biggest blessing to me on the Lord's mission here in kenya.  I have stopped seeing the Holy Ghost as a mystical, mysterious of even fake thing.  He is God's helper and if we desire it, He can be our helper.  I have sure changed my view on the Holy Ghost.   He has become a usable, almost tangible tool in my life.

Love you all, hit me up sometime.
