Hey Mom and Dad,
So this week was a pretty interesting week! We celebrated my birthday at KFC lol, but for the majority I was sick again....stink! The weather has been like Melbourne this week! Super hot, then raining/pouring and cold...Aint no malaria or ebola though haha!
Nevertheless we still manages to get out and do the work, the people here mean too much too us not to see them!
We were privileged to hear from Elder Bednar on Thursday. He also had with him Elder Vinson and Elder Hallstrom. They done like a question to the board type thing. So it was really great! I learnt a lot! Bednar really emphasized the temple and how important it is that we strive to go there WEEKLY...exception for us missionaries. ( i get to go to the temple in these upcoming weeks which will be good though) Overall the devotional was amazing! Godwin came with us too, he loved it!
This past Sunday we had a special stake conference again where we had some general authorities speak to us so we all traveled with the ward in a bus to the Tema stake centre! This week was an awesome opportunity to hear from a few General authorities!
We were blessed to have another baptism this past Saturday! It always fills our souls with joy when another brother/sister enters the waters of baptism! We are so so privileged to participate in the work of the lord!
During the week though we had a cool experience! We were walking to this area, and on thr way one of our members calls us out. She wanted a blessing and told us her phone had died so she was unable to give us or anyone a call and she's been praying to see someone. So It was my companions first time giving a blessing and it was wonderful! It strengthened my testimony that God hears and answers prayers!
We've been working a lot with Godwin lately though. We went and got him some white shirts and ties so he can bless sacrament. But he comes out teaching which is awesome. He loves the clothes aswell lol. Fresh guy!
Really looking forward to this week though! First Birthday out in the mission and only one more to go haha! People don't believe I'm 19 though. Some guy said i look 40...sad guy! I was pretty guttered hahahahaha!
The area is doing well, and the ward is awesome! Elder Winborg is doing great! He's learning and trying harder everyday, and I'm learning a lot from him as well!
Love and miss you's though heaps! I loved the pics you sent! Keen to see more next week! But until then! Love you's! Have a great week! xxx
