Sunday Meetings

Apr. 25th, 2010

After family prayer today Erika and I had a good discussion with Joseph.  He has a lot going on in his life right now and is a little over whelmed.  I am very pleased with him and the choices that he is making in his life.  I expressed to him my approval and encouraged him to focus on the most important issues and let the other ones go if he can’t get to them.

I fried up some potatoes, onions, and zucchini for breakfast.  It is nice to be able to cook for myself again.  Abera even thought that it was edible.
My good friend Abera and I
Abera joined me at church where they were watching General Conference.  We watched the Sunday morning session then took a short break before starting the afternoon session.  The talks and music were so uplifting and inspirational.  I have a renewed desire to work harder and be better.

I took a pair of pants and a shirt for a man that had asked me for help a couple of weeks ago.  His clothes were torn, ragged and were filthy.  He said that he had tried to get a job but no one would take him seriously.  The clothes were too big for him but were much better than what he had so hopefully he can get a job and get on his feet.

Weson fed us a good lunch when we arrived home.  She fried up potatoes and rice and had sura wot and ingera on the side.  She and Abera had a discussion about religion.  They discussed the differences in the Protestant faiths versus the Orthodox Church.  I want them to enjoy the blessings of the gospel but feel like my place is to set an example and let them learn at their own pace.  It is easy for me to see how much the other religions lack.  I am very grateful for my testimony of the gospel and the true Church of Jesus Christ.
