July 11 Uitkijk

Hey everybody! I hope that you're all doing well, I am doing
fantastic! Because I just found out that I'm going to the Jungle in
UITKIJK!!! Hahah I am going to spend my last transfer there with Elder
Hardy! He is a super cool Elder and I am so excited for it! The
uitkijk area is crazy, it's huge and the furthest away from the city.
Some of the members live over an hour bike ride away! So it seems like
I'll be returning home not only with honor, but with some really solid
thighs. Hahah they only get like 8 or 9 people in church some weeks
which will definitely take some getting used to but the area is
beautiful and it's the area with the highest chance of seeing
anacondas, crocodiles, and sloths :) hahah I am very excited for the
opportunity to go here, although saying goodbye to everyone here in
wanica south has been very difficult so far :( I love the people here
but i know that Uitkijk is where I'm needed next. I hope that I can
fulfill my purposes there these next few weeks and really make it a
meaningful time. We had a really cool experience just a couple of days
ago as well when we heard that one of our investigators sons was in
the hospital! We visited them the night he got released and he asked
us if we could pray for him, we told him we could do more than just
that and give him a blessing with the priesthood. He readily said that
he would like that, and we gave him a powerful blessing. The next
Sunday, he came to church with our investigator! And is now taking the
lessons and is close to receiving a baptismal date, his name is 'M'
and I am so excited to see how he progresses after I leave. I hope you
all have a wonderful week and I will tell you all about Uitkijk next
