Mom and Dad!
So i made it through my first transfer! Last week wasnt too bad! Theres going to be alot of changes occurring here over the next month or 2. A bunch of wards are getting split so our boundries are going to change quite significantly. Some missionaries have been reassigned to Sierra Leone and Liberia now that Ebola is under control too. Im pretty confident ill stay in Ghana though!
This past week though has been good though! Im really getting into the work and hang of things now though. Ive been trained ahead of schedule because its suspect that ill be training as soon as ive finished training. So Elder Hatch has got me working hard. A bunch of missionaries will be leaving next transfer and even more will be coming in. So i think ill be training and in Nungua ward for quite some time.
Our investigators are great though. Theyve been coming to church. Were going to see a few this evening. This lady Nyomi, who weve been teaching is so great. Its been so awesome to see her husband who was less active come back to church. Their family have been coming for the last 4 weeks. It brings so much joy seeing them at Church, and teaching the family.
Ive had so many opportunities to give blessings or annointings with Elder Hatch. Alot of members weve visitied have been sick and have asked for blessings. Its super cool to see the faith they have to ask for one.
The ward is doing great too. Weve been having PEC almost everyweek and weve built a strong relationship with the bishopric, and auxillery leaders. Our ward mission leader is the man too! Hes names Peter, but hes a super cool guy. Was only just called when i first arrived but he really gives it his all.
The members are so great though. Ive really gotten to know alot of them and serve with alot. Weve been doing home teaching with the Elder Quorum members which has been good. Weve been invited to alot of family home evenings which are always fun! Have you guys been having family home evening?
Didnt really have too many crazy adventures this week just gone though. There was some crazy Juju (voodoo) stuff going on though. Some crazy stuff with some local nutjobs who are into their voodoo digging up bodies and stuff lol...Crazy! The were a bunch of guys goin around trying to sell footage too..what the heck!? Weirdos haha!
Been learning to play hymns though, and reading music. They really encourage missionaries here to learn so we got a bunch of learning resources and one of the Elders has been teaching me.
I love the pictures though! Seems like it was an awesome night at the temple! And of course at KFC lol! It looks like Keanu really enjoyed him self! Its super awesome to see him standing at the front of the temple like a skux guy with his haircut lol!
The work is going well though. Alot of things i used to find peculiar are now becoming normal to me lol. I dont think its possible to adjust to the pepe in the food. Just when you think youre all good, they turn up the heat in the food big time loL! Been eating alot of fufu and banku though.
But yeah, all is well in Nungua! Elder Hatch goes home next transfer, so his countdown has begun lol. Im looking forward to all the changes that are soon to happen though. Should be interesting. Sounds like everything in Melbz is going good! I love all the little quotes and scriptures you send me though! Been marking the scriptures. Love and miss you though Mom and Dad! Send some more pictures, even just random ones of home, or whatever! Im forgetting alot of things haha! Hope yous have a great week though! Love yous!
