October 15, 2013

No worries today we had the mission doctor come to Cape Coast so you're getting email late on Tuesday this time.
I don't know when changes will come. The next change will be in 4 weeks. I don't really care, I just go with the flow and where ever the Lord wants me to be.
We're going to watch "The Best Two Years" this coming Monday. And we talked the Sister Missionaries into making food for My companion and I, so we'll enjoy. I've waited a long time to see this movie.
That's true scripture study is important. We were talking about Mulek one of the sons of Zedekiah who was spared by King Nebuchadnezzar today and how when he came to the America's they had forgotten about god and their language was scattered and their were lots of wars and contentions about his people because they didn't have any records of the prophets when King Mosiah met them.
It was funny as well because on Sunday I was reading small from.. lets see was it Jeremiah? And it just makes more sense who Zedekiah was and the Babylonian King was Nebuchadnezzar. I really love the Bible a lot and it makes a whole lot more sense to me now.

But Hey Elder Dube, what did he talk about in General Conference. You got to send me some little quotes from conference and what you liked about it!
And you can tell Grandma it's fine, I'm not too into writing emails anyways.
As for this side of the world -
This week we spent a lot of time working with recent converts, I feel I've been slacking on helping them out. I've gotten to focused on Less Actives and Investigators. We were able to help one recent convert come on Sunday, When he joined the church he was a drummer in another church soo the church wanted him back and I guess he was getting a lot of pressure.  Luckily he opened a phone shop on the side of the road so now it's easy to get into contact with him and help him get back and grow his testimony.
With Brother Kwesi he didn't come this Sunday because of something he had to do with his Cocoa seeds, but we're still planning on his interview tomorrow for baptism and then we're giving him this Sunday to come for his 6th time to show that he's really committed and then his baptism will be next Saturday.
Elder Doggett taught me some Solitaire when he came to our house so I'm enjoying that a little bit these days.
We've got a sweet apartment, Elder Lee from California he's been out for 3 months he's training a new missionary called Elder Collins from California as well so he's been out 2 weeks.
Elder Lee was a water polo guy back home and his dream is to be a professional Water Polo player in Europe
Elder Collins was a Basketball player back home and apparently was even the team captain. We're planning on pumping our basketball and we'll probably play it on his birthday in 2 weeks for our P-day activity. He's a sweet guy, super humble and very effective missionary. Although I get jealous of his stack of candy he brought along with him haha.
Elder Kirumira my sweet companion from Uganda. He's such a sweet guy, sometimes he'll fetch me a bucket of water in the morning, or he'll polish my shoes. He's just a fun guy to be around as well. He likes to give the impression that he's a stubborn missionary, but really he's just sweet.
A talk I enjoyed in studies was one about Loving God - it talked about how in our faith we shouldn't be thinking "If god loved me.. then.. (he wouldn't let my son get sick, he wouldn't let it take so long for me to have an eternal companion, etc.)" or "I've sinned too much, god can't possibly love me"
It talked about how god always loves us no matter what. He loves us so much that he sent his son Jesus Christ to come die for us.
It touched a bit deeper for me because that is the very first principle we teach our investigators "God is our Loving Heavenly Father", and for me to teach it I need to apply it in my own life and truly remember all the time that I am a Son of God, and he loves me and cares about me and wants to help me. Just as he cares for me he cares for every one else too.

Anyways love you

Elder Adair Your favorite :)
