Hey Mom and Dad!
So this week has been fairly interesting so to speak haha. Monday evening my eyes started kind irritating me and sight was kind of blurry. Then on Tuesday morning I wake up and the sun felt like I was glaring directly at the Glory of God or something...So we didnt really get to much proselyting done. We stayed in the apartment and I was being a super cool guy wearing sunglasses inside and trying to read my Book of Mormon and other books lol...fail guy alright!
During the week we have been teaching one girl refered to us by the Branch President. It has been kind of interesting! We had a sweet lesson on the Restoration and then we introduced the Book of Mormon...Haha as usual for many Ghanaians, this book may be a book to us but due to superstitions and rumors it's the devil to them as far as they are concerned haha. But as we were gradually continuing to teach as the appointments followed during the week we gradually read scriptures from the Book of Mormon and the spirit was so strong as we just testified to her that they were true, and this it was also the Word of God. The spirit convinced her and she was at church on Sunday which was sweet!
We had the Helping Hands activity on Saturday aswell which was awesome! We dug some trenches for the rain water to flow through so the roads would not flood in that area. Was super fun and they had some games and dancing and stuff afterwards. I didnt remember to take my camera though...what an absolutely fail that was!
Church was really great on Sunday. Was able to bless the Sacrament. One of our investigators who was ordained and recieved the Aaronic priesthood passed for the first time aswell which was awesome. I had to speak again in Sacrament haha, it was awesome though! Spoke on Work and Self Reliance, and it was all good! Had to teach Sunday school aswell, so felt pretty involved that Sabbath day to be quite honest lol!
The work is going along gradually though! Elder Palmer and I are really trying to do our best and reach all our goals and just help the church continue to grow here! I'm not sure how much longer I'll be here too...so making the most of it hey!
I'm really grateful for the continuous strength and support the Lord gives me everyday as a missionary though! Some days I reflect and wonder what it would be like if the Savior was here doing the work, but I know that he is beside us or continually watching over us as we represent him and strive to do his will! Without his Atonement to rely on for Strength it would not be easy at alllll haha! I'm forever grateful to my Savior and Heavenly Father for their love to each and everyone of us!
I hope yous are doing well though! Have an awesome week! Love yous! xx
