Well this week has also gone by quickly! It seems the days are just zooming by, and I think it's because I've been trying to have the mentality that I still have like 5 months left lol! Doesn't feel like I'll be home in a little less than 3 weeks, but at the same time it's just really strange! I am definitely going to miss these Ghanaians alright...Will have to adjust to the "obrouni" world lol...
Anyway Elder Vea and I are getting along so well! It's been cool since we have a lot in common, but I'm just doing my best to help him learn the area, get to know the members very well and just how to work the area. So far so good!
During the week we spent a lot of time visiting and teaching Recent Converts, Less Actives and also members. It's been going well and little by little referrals are beginning to come. I just want to leave the area better than when I came, so there is always more to do each day...when the rain is not making things difficult!
For 3 out of the 7 days this week it rained for like 4 hours straight, and not just your casual rain...it was pouring like crazy! There were small floods here and there but nothing to serious. It just made things frustrating when we want to teach as people are to busy fetching/collecting rain water and hiding in their houses. All good though.
This week should be way awesome though! I am super excited for this Wednesday. One of my recent convert's who was baptized December 2015 is planning to go through for his Endowment and also get Sealed! I was so stoked to find out when I called him during the week to check up on him that he had received his temple recommend and was preparing to go this week! Perfect timing! The joy it brings to witness and be an instrument in the hands of the Lord to help others make and keep covenants.
I guess to share a quick thought though from my studies this week, is a scripture I liked so much in Alma 31:5. I know that the word of God has power that will help us to experience a mighty change of heart and mind. As we seek to study the scriptures, listen to and hearken to the councils of our leaders, we will be greatly blessed! I know it to be true as I've served and been able to preach the Word, help others receive it and also study it my self.
That's kind of it for this week though! Bro Buckman, one of the RM's has travelled to his home town until he leaves for his mission which was sad. He's going to come back down for my last Sunday though! We proselyted alot with him and he helped us alot with translating! Such an awesome and humble member who wants to do the Lords work!
Hope you's have an awesome week though! Love yous!
