Elder D. Andrew Greenman

Our son, Elder Andrew Greenman, has been called to serve in the Mozambique Maputo Mission. He has asked me to create this blog so that you, the reader, can read his letters to home. His current writing address is found below along with the most recent letter.

A Brand New Transfer

A lot has definitely happened in the past few weeks.  (Editor's Note: Andrew did not write a letter last week due to the fact that he had no P-day--He had transfers that day, plus the busy-ness of an audit process) The audit that happened last week was a really good experience.  I could definitely see myself going into finances.  I'm still going to go into business, but I'm pretty sure finances are an essential part of that.

On last week's Saturday night, my companion, Elder Brandao was transferred to Maxixe.  For the next two days, until Monday I stuck with the Office Elders while I waited for Elder Williams to come from Matola.  I really like Elder Williams.  I went on a division with hime about three weeks ago, and we had a lot of success on that division.  Now is no different.  The Lord has blessed Elder Williams and I much this week.  We've had a lot of good time in our area.  We sat with about five new families this week.  This past week Elder Williams and I prepared the zone conference presentation.  This zone conference is going to be super nice!  Some of the things that will be talked about are:
Zone Conference in Beira with Elder Hamilton and his wife
President will talk about the life of two servants.   Gehazi, servant of Elisha, and Samuel, of Eli.  Gehazi was ungrateful and did not have his heart in the right place.  He saw many miracles but did not benefit from them.    Samuel was humble and learned much as he grew in the ways of the Lord.   The question is:  What kind of servant do we want to be for the Lord?

Elder Hamilton, of the Seventy arrived in Mozambique on Saturday.  He went straight to Beira for the district conference there.  It rained a lot, but we still had a turnout of over 1000 people.  Zone conference in Beira will be tomorrow, and in Maputo, it will be on Thursday.  Elder Williams and I were actually able to fly up to Beira for the zone conference.   Yes...I'm currently in Beira.  It's so nice to be here, it feels like home.  Elder Williams and I want to spend the P-day visiting the families that we've taught here.

The plane ride here was quite the adventure.  Ever heard of turbulence?  ya...there was a lot.  Was my heart thumping like crazy?  Yes!   Did we make it safely?  Yes! 
Elder Williams and I are learning much

together, and are really excited to help the missionaries here in Mozambique.   All is well with me,  I'm absolutely loving my mission!
