What was a funny experience?
- The funny experiences were many, but I will share one. It was the first time for me in the field and I could imagine how shy I was, but this is funny to me, so when I got like a year on a mission I was so bold and strait with the mission goal, it’s just funny to me that things that we think to be hard it’s very possible to understand and learn them- only fear stops us and makes us to say it’s impossible…It’s possible through Christ. (Alpha)
- The 3+ naked people I saw per week. (Taylor)
- It’s customary to take off shoes outside the door before entering a home. After a lesson I realized that mine and my companions shoes were gone and we were worried someone stole them. When we started walking away in our socks a lady came running to us yelling, “Missionaries! Missionaries….we cleaned your shoes” and she handed us freshly clean and polished shoes. It was funny and also VERY heart warming to feel served by others around us. (Randy)
- Taxi drive to and from Kampala while staying in Jinja. (Pamella)
What was a crazy/dangerous experience?
- Wow, we went to a certain national park in Rwanda called Alkagera, so we longed all day long wanting to see a lion, but no where to be seen. So at the giving up time I saw a huge elephant and we approached to were it was, now here is the dangerous part, I did walk out of the track and moving close to the elephant wanting a close pic to it. Bad thing there was a lot of tsetse fly and were biting me and the elephant was now coming to were I was- almost it was going to flip our track, but we did manage to escape, God’s grace. (Alpha)
- Every time I got behind the wheel to drive. (Taylor)
- During elections there were riots and we were locked down for about a week. We could see people getting shot with tear gas, hoses and rubber bullets from our window. Fortunately our mission president knew something bad was going to happen and that’s why we were all told to stay indoors. (Randy)
- Riding a motorcycle. (Pamella)
What was a spiritual experience?
- The times of spiritual experience were a lot on my mission, the one I would like to share is.. I once felt to give up the missionary work, I thought of my purpose and why am on a mission, how many people out there praying for me, what God expects of me in bringing His children to His kingdom. But all these did not help to give me strength to carry on the work, but a thought came and it came after I had asked the Lord what I must do and this thought was a prompting to me to say go to the transfer sheet of the first day on your mission, and there was a massage by President Henry B. Eyring talking that to all the missionaries it is not by mistake or accident or coincidence that you are here, nay this is the right place and it’s the safe place for you at this little period of time. This talk did made it to me and I felt strength so strong and finished my mission. (Alpha)
