Life on the front lines

Howdy hey everybody! This week flew right by... What I would do to have more time in the day... This week was a busy one... We were running around non-stop. From keeping up our proselyting area to getting things ready for the new Elders that are coming this week. We are all so excited that we are finally getting some more missionaries here! We're running low on troops... But it looks like the visa issues have been resolved so we should start to receive missionaries more frequently. 

It truly is a battle out here and we need all of the help we can get. (Put on your metaphoric ears). Sadly Satan has such a strong force here fighting against us, the immorality and overall desensitivity of the people is quite depressing. But the Lord has been helping us recruit more and more soldiers every week. It is so cool to see when somebody decides that they don't want to fight for the other side anymore and they decide to come fight with us. We have all the weapons and strategies necessary to beat the enemy, we've just got to know how to use them. Our general, Christ, knows exactly what to do in every situation, because he's already been there, and he weeps when we're wounded, because he's already felt the pain that it causes. I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have been given to fight on the front lines of this battle that we know will soon end and that we know we will come out victorious. Satan is fighting hard! But, the armor of righteousness that he has given his troops in impenetrable. I'm so glad that I'm fighting for this side!

Well I hope that made a little sense... Long story short I am excited for the new missionaries to get here. 

My week was great! Things are really progressing here in Angola and I am content to say the least. Thank you for all of you prayers and support! I love you all!
