Weird subject line right? Well it totally fits with what I’m going to share with you. It all started on Saturday when we traveled to a less active’s house. We’d never been there before, and we’d never met her before so we really wanted to see her. She was elated that we came. In fact so elated. when we were leaving she asked “do you like chicken?” I’m like “yeah”. She then reaches in to her chicken pen and man handles a huge chicken, ties its feet, and gives it to me. She then asked “do you know how to prepare it? Sorry I didn’t prepare anything for you, I guess you’ll have to prepare it yourself.” Hahaha, she handed me a live chicken! I named it Steve.
Long story short I killed Steve, took off its feathers, and took out its guts then ate him that very night. I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I did it! Delicious! He put up a good fight, but I killed him dead. Huku means chicken in Shona in case you were wondering.
Enough with the stories back to the work! Last week was district conference and we have a new district presidency. I hope things can turn around here, because under the direction of the last district presidency, things were going very well. It kind of disrupted our attendance at church but bother Madya came! He came with one of our memers in his truck! Truly this man was touched, as he explained everything he learned. I can’t wait to see where this man goes!
By the way I’ve started a diet. I cut all sugar and carbohydrates from everything I eat. I gotta get in shape so I can go swimming when I get home haha. It’s working well so far.
As my time has been winding down I’ve really tried applying extra focus to making sure I serve with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I can’t die early, gotta finish strong. I didn’t sign up for 23 months, but 24. That’s what’s been keeping me going.
Next week is MLC, my 19th and last one. I’ll see some of those guys for the last time, then I’m outta here!
