Another week's come and gone.
I got a call this morning that I have a meeting in Cape Coast as a District Leader. Here goes another step into the dark :). Woot.
Soo this week Regina, Joseph, and Shem were baptized and confirmed. They were so excited and they each love the church soo I'm sure they will stay strong.
Nich Jr, Misheal, and Nana didn't show up this week :( we'll keep helping them out.
Emmanuel and Prince are still strong and Emmanuel continues to be a powerful 2nd missionary.
No new people came to church this week. We're just meeting a lot of people who won't keep their commitments soo it's hard to know when to focus on new investigators.
Soo info on the people we're teaching
Richard believes the church is true but he doesn't really like coming to church, he wants to learn more deep doctrine rather than the basics we're teaching him. So we think we'll just do a study of the book of Revelations with him and see if that helps.
A girl named Anita, but she was busy when we were suppose to see her this week. She has potential though because she's friends with Emmanuel and noticed that their should only be one faith (which is rare).
A girl named Suzy, She's confusing. She doesn't seem to excited when we teach the message but afterwards she'll walk with us to our next appointments and says she'll come to church, but she hasn't come the past two weeks.
We stopped teaching Afful for a time because he's just lost interest. He believes Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is true. He just finds church boring and wants to dance.
Ken is a guy we met dirt road contacting, We've taught him the Restoration and Book of Mormon but he doesn't believe it, but says he will pray about it. He says if he gets an answer that he should read the Book of Mormon he'll read it, if not we should stick to the bible. Sooo let's hope he actually prays.
Isaac is a guy that is super smart and picks up on things quicker than anyone we've taught. He's read the first 2 chapters of the Book of Mormon and is really loving it, he couldn't come to church this week or next week, but he says the following week he will come.
Grace is a lady who's only free on Sunday, she can't read very well so it's super hard to tell if she's read. That gives me the idea to have her right down what she reads.. mm hmm good idea. We've taught her the Restoration and she seems to be slowly gaining a testimony but she keeps saying she won't leave her church.
Paul a guy we just met the other day, he's a cool guy but hasn't been reading so we taught him about keeping promises, either we've scared him off now or he'll start keeping commitments.
Lot is a guy that knows Shem soo we've taught him small but he hasn't kept any of his commitments either. He said he'd come to church but he didn't come.
Soo that's most of our main teaching pool. I don't feel like we're working smart because there aren't any members actively involved with any of these people except for Emmanuel and Nicholas who help us teach everyone.
Umm today if we still have time we're going to get pizza to celebrate my year mark. Hopefully we can find a pizza place in Takoradi.
The mission is going well, I've learnt a lot and am still growing.
The two attributes I've been working on this week is Charity and being Humble. It's cool because as you learn about the principles you can apply it throughout the day and it makes a difference in the teachings. Soo I guess I'd invite you guys to use Preach My Gospel and pick a couple attributes you want to work on and then study it and apply it throughout the week.
I know the gospel is true and as we apply it in our lives we'll find greater joy and meaning in our lives.
Hey dad I've got a goal for you to set as well. When I get home you're going to go through the temple with me alright? Alright.
Love you all
