Hey Mom and Dad,
So this past week wasnt too bad! We had to stay in the apartment for a day...this week i was sick lol. The flu is going around bad in our apartment, fail! I think its because of the weather change thats happening though! Im fine now though. Elder Vernon is definately "Going out in a Blaze of Glory." He's a great example and is determined to finish his mission working hard.
This week we somehow struggled seeing investigators. Alot of public holidays this past week, so Nungua was like a Ghost town. Was pretty interesting, but we visited alot of Recent Converts and Less Actives. Weve been working alot with Bishop Karikari in our ward, and getting members to get more involved with the ward mission plan too. Alot of members want to give us referrals, but some just dont know how to share the gospel. So Bishop wants us to go to alot of members houses and teach, get to know them more, and show ways in which they can share the gospel with their friends.
The work is going though. I think we will be very busy this upcoming week though. We have plenty of people that weve T'd up to see with members. So it always good and fun to teach with members. Especially when its their friends. There are quite a few people in our ward preparing to go on their mission, so weve been taking them out too.
Its been getting alot more hotter here though. Really dusty too. But its pretty good if you want to get a tan lol! The Gha Festivals have died down, so no more parades and riots. Not too much out of the norm has happened though, were just steady teaching and finding.
Ive been reading this book written by President Ezra Taft Benson. It's really interesting, and its alot about his testimony of the Book of Mormon and how the teachings in it have helped him throughout his life with different things. I forgot the name, but its really good. Ive almost finished my first read through of the Book of Mormon whilst ive been out. Going to see how many times i can study it before i come home. Its crazy to think what itd be like without it in our lives.
How is everything back home though? Are you guys doing Family home evening and scripture reading still lol? I see some of the families here, or when we go to their houses for FHE and it reminds me of home lol! The kids are really cheeky here too.
Elder Vernon and I are doing fine though. Getting ready and pumped for another week lol! Vernon is somehow more excited because he finished in a week and a bit though lol! But until next week! Hope you guys have a wonderful week! Send my love to the family and the ward! Love and Miss you's!
