August 13 2012

Haha the excercise still isn't coming along amazingly. On Saturday we
did a service project shoveling dirt and carrying it in big pans to a
wheelbarrow, and then wheelbarrowing it to a guys house. We did half
the job and said we'd come back next week. Then we went and fetched
water for some less actives which we've been doing for weeks. My
back is dead now though. We're going to play football (soccer) today,
but I think I might have to skip out. I also have a sore on the back
of my foot from my nike shoes.

We haven't been able to go out again with the assistants. The time
they came our appointment flogged.

It's about as cold as a windy day back home at night. I wake up quite
cold  like I need to have a light sheet to stay warm. Luckily some
Missionaries are going home and I'm getting some more sheets and a
towel. My towel is disgusting now so I'm excited for that.

I don't think the Humidity really makes it much colder, it just makes
you sweat alot. But the rainy season is pretty much over so it's
starting to warm up again.

Haha the girl that was talking to me last week at the computer wasn't
serious. The girls mostly just want to get married so we don't really
teach them much. Usually their first question will be "are you

Melanie sent me some pictures and some were at Lagoon, it looks like
you guys are having fun. The kids are looking old now it's weird.
Especially shawn's kids.

Ya it's amazing to think of what Abraham grew up with, yet he turned
out to be a great leader.

For me the Bible keeps getting more interesting, It's slowly starting
to make more sense for me. I was looking through the scripture mastery
that they have you memorize in Seminary, and I was surprised that most
of them we use for missionary work as well.

Soo this Saturday we had a mini party for Elder Rogers who is going
home. We went to the Cape Coast Castle Restaurant and I got Hawaiin
Chicken with Chips for 10 Cedis. It was the most amazing meal I have
ever had. I ate the Chicken fat and bones and everything on my plate.
It all tasted amazing. Afterwards I bought a Fan Ice and a Fandango
(Ice Cream and some Orange Juice). I was in heaven.

Also since he is going home Elder Adair is the new Zone Leader in our
apartment. So now we have 2 Elder Adairs in the apartment starting
tomorrow. We'll have 2 guitars as well so I'm excited. Maybe I'll get
to jam with him as well! I didn't even think about that. Oo sweet.

Daniel Donkoh came to church right when the sacrament started so he
missed his confirmation by about 1 minute. But he brought his friend
Lawrence who Elder Jackson told me to go and see. He's progressing
really well and keeping all of his commitments. He has a testimony of
the things we are teaching, and when we gave him the Book of Mormon he
said "I already know it's true". Soo it's exciting to see him

Elizabeth is a cool girl as well, and I'm sure she would accept the
gospel, but she has 2 kids and is super busy. Every time we come she
has her hands full making food, or washing the kids, or washing the
clothes, or fetching water, etc. I'm not sure what to do in that case.

There's a couple more of the Bakaano boys. One is Sammy, He works at a
bar but he doesn't like to meet with us one on one because he wants
his friends there with him. We were teaching them together and it was
going really well with him, but then all of the sudden he didn't want
to see us when we split into one on one lessons. Slowly we figured out
it was because he didn't like meeting one on one.

Then there is Clifford, he's an awesome guy but his reading isn't the
best so I think he doesn't like to meet with us. He came to church
when Daniel was baptized. I think friendshipping him a bit more will

Then there is Eugiene, I haven't gotten to know him very well but I
think he's like Sammy and just would rather meet in a group. I think
he just likes being with his friends so if they sit down for the
message, he will as well.

I don't know if I told you about Dennis, but he works at a Fan Ice
shop and we've been teaching him for a while. He's awesome, but his
Aunt is paying for his education and he has to go to her church if she
will continue to pay for his education. We aren't really sure what to
do in that case either. He'll probably have to wait 3 years until he's
graduated before coming.

Then Sister Erica referred us to a couple people living by her.
Angelina and Lydia. They are really cool and they both came this
Sunday. Haha Sister Erica is so powerful, I'm pretty sure she talks
about the gospel to everyone she meets and she works hard to help them
come to church and make sure they feel comfortable and watches their
kids and helps them get to nursery. Powerful powerful powerful..

Her friend Mike Nyarko was baptized a couple weeks ago.

But ya basically she does hair, and just talks to people about the
gospel while doing their hair, and by the time we get to teach them
they already know quite a bit about what we believe.

I guess our time is up

Love you all

Elder Adair
