Elder Ferrara spent July 23-24 in route to Uganda, beginning from Salt Lake City, then Chicago, an 8 hour layover in London, then to Johannesburg, and then Kampala, Uganda. Upon reaching the mission home in Kampala, 6 of the 10 missionaries then traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia! In his words:
"On our travels to Uganda we met a lot of people at the airports. The people were awesome and made us laugh a lot. We handed out quite a few of Book of Mormon. One of them was actually a worker at a
Ferrari store at the airport. When I arrived in Uganda they told me I was going to Ethiopia. So I am in Ethiopia right now in Addis the Capital. I am learning their language Aramic which is very difficult but I am learning. My companion is really nice and we get along well. We are tracting a lot and walk a lot. Our sacrament is about 65, so pretty small. So far everything has gone really smooth and am still learning. The mission president is really nice and expects us to do well. He told us this is the most experienced group he has ever had. In all of Ethiopia I think he said there are only about 20 missionaries so very few. Our areas are ridiculously large. But everything is going good and I am safe. Still trying to adapt to the the culture because it is a lot different. "
