Hey Mom and Dad,
So we've been blessed with another great week out here in Nungua! Been keeping super busy teaching and finding in the streets of this place. Being here for so long is starting to feel like home! We are now half way through the transfer now though, so maybe change is coming my way!?
This Saturday just gone we proselyted the whole day with one of the Ward Missionaries. Eric has been a member for just over a year now and is married. He is a super awesome guy though. We were teaching a lesson to one of our investigators and for Eric, he is the really quiet type but he starts opening up during our lesson and just shares this amazing experience about how he came to know the church was true. It just filled the room with the spirit, and I'm almost positive the guy's heart was touched! We saw him at Church the day after which was awesome.
Working with the members has really helped with our efforts, but I've really learnt alot from their experiences and wisdom! Good thing we've been striving to take them out proselyting alot!
One thing that has really strengthened my testimony of the Book of Mormon out here is seeing its powerful effect on the minds of those who read it with a open heart! When people fail to keep commitments reading we just decide to read with them. One thing I really noticed the other day was one of our investigators face and reaction when we were reading from a chapter in 2nd Nephi. He just looked stunned haha, you could see the spirit working in him! I know it is true, and the keystone of our Religion and testimonies!
We've had a pretty solid week though. We're currently preparing 3 candidates for the 30th of Jan, so that's exciting stuff! The last few weeks have been somehow rebuilding our teaching pool and it has payed off!
Been cooking at the apartment now though, havnt been buying food! So im working on my Ghanaian stews and soups with rice haha! Being taughtby the members so hopefully i become a master chef! For now, they continue to laugh at my attempts hahaha...sad guys man!
Hope you's have a wonderful week though! Love you heaps Mom and Dad! We are well and staying safe hehe! xx
So Here are some pics from this week!
All the Elder in Our Apartment at the front of the Chapel after church. From Left to Right. Elder Onyeugbo (Nigerian), Elder Fesolai (Ghanaian lol), Elder Winborg (Alaska,Usa) and Elder Mickelson (Wyoming,Usa).
This has to be my favorite picture ever! Its Obediah ( Naomi's Son) and one of the neighboring kids Pastor Sam (they call him that coz his dads a pastor lol) getting pulled around on an oil bottle. Their Smile says enough! But its awesome to see what makes these kids happy, small and simple things. Humbling!
Heres some pics from the African sunrise this morning. I never really took notice of it until this morning during working out. It's pretty awesome if i say so myself lol!
Elder Winborg being a fatty. Dude loves his biscuits too much, probably why he gets a bad stomach lol.
And just a pic in of part of our area. Its what we call the Fish district lol. Fish markets left and right, they were all closed there though.
