The Law of Chastity and Then Some

Hello Everyone!
We are having a good time here in Makindye! Time continues to speed up and it is a crazy thing! Noteworthy things this week all happened yesterday. We had two baptisms for some wonderful people! One was so prepared and from day one has progressed so fast. He goes by the name Sunday. The other, GLoria, took a while to gain the testimony but it was no less worth it! We have been teaaching here since May Maybe end of April. It was a happy day for us. The otheer thing was we probably taught one of the most legendary Law of Chastity lessons for me on my mission. It was somehow awkward I will say. There is a member whose daughter turned 9 before being baptized so we as missionaries have had to teach her in order to be baptized. So she had the interview yesterday and Elder Moyes, the interviewer, said we just need to review the Law of Chastity. So we did it right after so she will be ready for next week. Anyways we taught it with the Father around, and the Bishop and his wife (who are like her back up parents since the mom is not in the picture and the dad sometimes gets busy with work and other stuff.) Anyways in the end this lesson took like 2 hours they covered everything. Some I understood, most was put in Luganda. They covered sex before marriage, proper marriage, puberty, rape, stranger danger, then it even go to friend groups, also they covered clean language, good touch bad touch an many more things since 3 adults were all throwing in their thoughts. All of who are people who like to talk. Honestly I felt a little awkward since we are missionaries not the parents but since we started the lesson and the adults took over I felt like we got more tied to it then we were. Anyways it was probably good because it broke the ice for the father to cover some of these topics she needs/deserves to hear from him but still we didn't need to be there for half the lesson haha.; Mission life. It was interesting. But Benitah will be baptized next Sunday and it will be a good day.
That was my week. Today I got to enjoy sports in Kololo. I played some basketball and talked to old friends. It is always nice to relax. As the missionary handbook says quoting a prophet of God "And see that all these things are done in wisdom and orderfor it is not requisite that man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore, all things must be done in order. (Mosiah 4:27)"
Have a good week everyone!
Love Elder Seibert
