I'm in the branch of Pointe Noire now!

February 5 2018,

Well, I'm feeling better. A bacteria called shegella something-or-other was what has been bothering me. The doctor told me to take some anti-biotics that should help with my intestinal tract also so ça va.

I'm in the branch of Pointe Noire now! Lots of changes recently. Elder Muamba, Elder Robin's new companion finally came and the Pointe Noire apartement has the most space so there I am. I'm with Elder Reese from Utah and Elder Kabengele from RDC Kinshasa. They're cool and chill. I've started helping Elder Reese with his pronunciation by reading the Book of Mormon out loud. Other than that not much news sector wise because I'm new here, but I'll get some more to you! We have one ami with a baptismal date: Fr Ivan the son of a member, more should be soon to come.

One of the things I learned about this week is the power of prayer. Often I'm distracted but if I pray I can focus easier. So pray! It helps! Fasting was hard this sunday because of the sickness (it still has me a bit, but the worst is over).

Je vous aime tous!
Nous ne craignons aucun homme!

  1. Elder Russell, this is Elder Reese's dad. A while back I came across several Elders blogs from the mission and one of them was yours, so when he told us that he was companions with you I came back to your blog. Thank you so much for helping him with the language, it's been a bit of struggle for him, so any help is greatly appreciated. Keep up the good work, you missionaries are amazing!
