29 April 2013

Hey mom I only have a quick 9 minutes to reply to your emails, but I'm doing well so don't worry. Just expect on and off emails for a little while, Haha I'll explain when I come home.

Thanks for that talk by Elder Holland, I wish every missionary could hear that talk before he goes out.

That's good to hear the twins are healthy. And Lydia is a common Ghanaian name soo that's kind of cool.

Thanks Grandma for the email, Don't worry I know I've got the best grandparents in the world. Sorry I'll try to reply when I can.

We'll have a baptism in the coming month, Her name is Evelyn. She's the step mother of Shem (12) that we recently baptized.

Well hope everything is sweet back home. Sorry once again for the short emails. Just give it a couple months and it should return back to normal.

Love you

15 April 2013

Hey mom sorry about last week. My companion's clothes were still wet and soo we didn't get out until P-day was over.. So I wrote you a letter instead. I wasn't sure what to do really.

I've been doing well. The area is good and this Sunday was sweet. 4 of our investigators came to church and 2 of them seem serious soo we're praying. 1 of them (Sis Patience) we've been working with since I got here and she never came until today soo I was excited. But I also had to do a couple Baptismal Interviews so I didn't get to talk to them much. 

Sis Evelyn is our recent converts step mother and she's for sure going to be baptized at the end of the month

Sis Anita is a friend to Bro Emmanuel and we had backed off for a while because she wasn't keeping commitments but then she surprised us by coming this week. - She knows that the gospel is true but doesn't want to leave her church.. Soo we'll give it time.

Finally Sis Elizabeth, She lives far from the church so I was surprised when she showed up. For her at first she didn't like the sound of the Book of Mormon but as we explained about it she became really interested. We've only taught her a couple times soo we'll focus on her more now.

This Wednesday we have 15 New Missionaries coming and only like 4 going. By the End of the year we'll go from 100 to 200 Missionaries.

The Last baptism was a couple months ago. Soo we're trying to figure out what we're doing wrong.

Umm my companion would like..  I don't know. I don't think he'd like chocolate, and pretty much anything else you'd ever need you can buy here.

Mm I went to the Primary a couple weeks ago, but they were speaking in Fante so I couldn't understand anything. I don't have a guitar, Elder Trevin Adair has one at his apartment, but he just got called to Elmina to train a new missionary.

The kids don't play instruments really. The Bishops son plays the piano for sacrament and there's one other guy that plays the piano when he comes (I felt bad, the other day he asked me to play the closing song and I totally forgot)

Nope I still haven't seen Conference yet. Maybe in a month or so. Hey at least I know I'll be in this area still (I got transfer news Saturday and I'm staying in Kweikuma with Elder Oodoh) soo the conference will be in English! Yupee.

Thanks for the scripture about the Holy Ghost, I think it's something I can work on a lot haha.

Soo time is flying by quickly.

I got a sore throat this week, but luckily it was only bad for a day and then the rest of the week I've been fine with talking and everything. Haha I was drinking loads of water and I had to go find a toilet after every lesson. 

My area is full of Muslims and they're extremely nice, but it's interesting that most of them I teach want to be Christian. Their religion has some disowning thing if you stop going to their mosk soo nobody wants to leave.

We also saw Sister Jennifer this week, she and her husband were very serious about the church since I came here, until she had her baby and everything went upside down.. Now her husband works all the time and she's busy taking care of the 2 kids. I asked her if she remembered anything we'd taught with her and she said she'd forgotten it all.. Heart Breaker.

Brother Bynee believes in the Book of Mormon, but his wife hardly wants to hear about it.. And he works on Sunday. :(

Sister Vida has been sick for a long time, we finally got to the Book of Mormon with her and she wouldn't take it. But when we see her again we'll discuss it more with her.

Yup and that's mostly the area for now

Love you guys

April 1 2013

Uh Huh Thanks for letting me know when Mother's Day is :) I probably wouldn't have found out until the day.
I've only got short time to email today, but yes I got dad's letter 

Sorry to here Jaxon was sick. That's the biggest thing they're always telling us is to drink water here. Water is the miracle drug. The most severe sicknesses missionaries get are solved by drinking water.

The weather sounds nice over there though. Those bike rides were always the best.

Mm China Platter. 

Mm this week we've been searching for new investigators

There's a couple we've been teaching with a baby and the father is understanding really well and wants to come to the church but has work on Sundays. His wife was doing really well until we came to the Book of Mormon and people around her area have been telling her that it was a book we made up.. So we're just working with that one

Then there's a girl that's a Sister to a recent convert we've been teaching, but her mom keeps sending her in the morning on Sunday's so she isn't able to come to church. The hardest thing about older people is that they don't speak English.. Soo it doesn't help.

There's also a lady named Vida who is mostly scared to leave her church, but I'm thinking that with time she'll join the church. We'll see.

Finally Anita who committed to a baptismal date, but isn't being serious. She told us her parents were making it so she couldn't come to church.. But we later found that her mom was practically encouraging her to come. Soo we've decided to leave her alone until she decides to be serious and tell us the truth.

But they are the main ones. Oh and there's a lady named Evelyn that came to church this Sunday who's Sisters to a recent convert. She seemed like she wants to learn so we will find out this week. 

Today was a bad Sunday for Recent Converts though. Only Emmanuel and Regina came which was sad

Anyways time up

Love you
