Hey Mom and Dad!
Wow, so what a week it has been! This past week with Elder Fransden has really been great! We were able to teach quite a few people and extend some baptismal dates! Really trying to leave that area the best I can!
During the week I conducted an exchange with one of the Elders in the District and went and showed him some members houses in their area and what not! His name is Elder Randmall and he's from the same MTC as me, so it was a really fun, productive day! We were able to teach and find alot of people in that one day.
So, Saturday morning I was informed that I would be going on transfer! I'll come to that in a second lol! So that evening we had a district feed at the apartment! It was really nice, we had a bunch of food that we all prepared and it was serious haha! Godwin came to!
Some relly cool news is that Godwin will be advanced to the Melchizidek priesthood this coming Sunday! I'm really stoked for him, that guy is just too Golden! He hs really come so far! I'm guttered that I wont be there for it, and I'll miss him and many other members alot! The FM invites were real when the Bishopric announced I was leaving!
Getting up to share my testimony before leaving I was really just overwhelmed with so much love for these people! I was just so happy seeing them all in the congregation! The members of Nungua ward have really just become like family! They made it so easy to adjust here because of their love and respect for us missionaries! And saying goodbye was real bittersweet! You really make some great relationships with many families and individuals! I am really just so grateful for the opportunity I had to serve there for the time I did! To see the ward grow to where it needed to be split, and see individuals and even families enter the waters of baptism! I will miss Nungua too much!
But that is mission for you! So the new area I'm being transferred to is a place called Juapong, in the Kpong Zone. It an hour or 2 north of Nungua, in the Volta Region. So it is a big change and will be an awesome time to continue to learn, grow, and further my own conversion in the Gospel! It wil be wonderful to get to know some more people to! I'm really looking forward to it all! My new companion is a frenchy from I think DR.COngo or Cotedevoir (Ivory COast) , I wil meet him later on today! At the moment I'm in a 3 with the Zone Leaders and they are driving me out!
Anyway, I will send all my pics next week! This cafe doesnt have the plugins for the usb stuff! But thats really all for this week! I hope you guys have a wonderful week! Love you's!
