Hey Mom and Dad!
So what a busy week it has been in Nungua! Where do I begin?
So we had Zone training this week on Tuesday, which was pretty good. The whole Zone came down to Nungua chapel so it was pretty sweet! Talked alot about the link between the Atonement, Grace and Humility! There were some interesting discussions and insights to be had haha!
The Zone Leader's conducted some exchanges this week too. So on Tuesday I was on exchanges with Elder Harrigfeld as his companion (who is the DL) was with one of the Zone Leaders so Frandsen when to the other Zone Leaders Area. So Wednesday and Thursday I was with Elder Okeke. He's from Nigeria! So that was super awesome to work with him for those 2 days. It's always fun and interesting working with other missionaries, seeing how the teach and go about the work. There is always so much you can learn from other people!
Elder Frandsen and I were able to go to the temple on Friday too which was awesome! We got permission from President to go, so it was an awesome opportunity! It is always so so nice to go to the house of the Lord and do temple work! We are blessed to have a temple in Ghana!
Overall this week has been a real busy one! We've been able to see and teach so many people! We spent about 3 days just going around and contacting and finding on the streets which was absolutely fun haha! It is always great to meet and talk to new people about the Gospel!
We are planning to do alot of teaching with Godwin Selom this week! Some crazy news! So he is currently preparing for a mission. He was talking to Bishop on Sunday, so that was exciting news! He will have been a member for 1 year in September so still 5 months away. But it's great to see that he has it as a goal and priority! It has really been so amazing to see how that guy has progressed over the short time I've been here! The miracle of change that the Gospel brings is too real!
Missionary work is awesome though! I've been studying the Book of Mormon again. I've come to love that book so much since I have been out. It's one of my firsts places to turn to for comfort, council, and knowledge and understanding! That book really helps us draw closer to God and continually build our testimony in the Savior and his Gospel. It is a great blessing to have it in our lives! It's really written for our times!
Everything is cool in Nungua though! We are planning to work with the members and Bishopric this week so it should be good. This Sunday at Ward Council Bishop Karikari brought up some awesome ideas to reach out to less actives.
Hope you guys are doing well though! Work and all is going good? Love yous!
So they pictures have returned! Sorry it's been a while! Alot has happened this week though so I took alot of pics haha!
We went to the temple on Friday which was awesome!
Tuesday and Wednesday were exchanges. The fair guy is Elder Harrigfeld, then I was on exchange with Elder Okeke, he's one of our Zone Leaders. Super cool ELders!
I saw Obed on Sunday, we dont get to see them much since theyre in the other ward, so I snapped a pic with him. He was trying to beat me up with that hymn book....
We were at one of my RC's house Kingsley. He's Nigerian and he made us Aba and Agusi stew! It was sweet! In that pic is ELder Ochieng, Winborgs new comp. He's from Uganda and goes home soon!
And then we caught up with Koronikalou, mr fiji!
