Yo Mom and Dad!
How are you both? This past week for Elder Bulunga and I was really busy! There was so much to get done in so little time! A week really sometimes doesn't feel like enough time to reach all of our goals, but we somehow manage haha! As a result I guess by the time Sunday comes after church, you feel dead lol! All good though, we couldn't be happier!
So I guess I'll start of with what is the freshest thing in my memory! And that was Yesterday! So Church yesterday was great. We again were able to see many of our investigators at church. I've been teaching the Youth Sunday school class to, so that was fun! I got the short end of the stick and had to speak last minute in sacrament too. Kinda expecting it every week now incase!
After church though, we had 4 baptisms though which was really nice! The guy Linus who has the broken leg, a Lady named Doris, and her 2 daughters Grace and Belinda. They were referrals through one of the members. But wow, what a day it was. The branch is growing! Little by little, but as President Kassah likes to say, we are a small, big family in Juapong branch haha!
I've really been enjoying the work though. I was reflecting on my mission so far since I'm coming up to the halfway mark soon, and as I've looked back, I really see how much the Lord has his hand in the work! Things that seemed like they were impossible to achieve or people who we thought wouldn't change were all resolved and achieved. I know it wasn't because of our efforts alone, but because of the Lord's support! The work is so so awesome, and I'm really really grateful to be out here!
Still studying the Book of Mormon too! How are you's going with studying together? I really love the everyday revelations and answers from the scriptures! I know that the Standard works already contains answers to many questions, concerns and problems that can and will arise in our lives, and if we dont search them we cant receive those answers lol!
Really looking forward to seeing how this week goes though! One of my recent converts in Nungua called us the other day and gave us a referral! Asked us to teach their sister who lives in Juapong! So I'm really excited to meet and teach her this week with Elder Bulunga!
Hope you's have a wonderful week though Mom and Dad! We are both doing fine, and are happy and healthy! I've really been blessed with health and strength out here, havnt been sick yet!...nek minnut lol fail! Love you's though! till next week!
So I finally got around to taking some pictures! I guess I forgot I had a camera for a few weeks/days or however long it's taken me to send some quality pictures lol....Anyway here they are!
Pic from the baptisms yesterday...was awesome!
The selfie is with all the youth in the branch haha! I teach their class on Sundays, so that's really fun!
The pics of the flood were from last week Monday here in Akosombo. We were trapped in the valley, the cars couldnt make it past the main road coz it was so flooded!
Some pics from today! We were learning to cook some nice food with one of the members! Michael the masterchef lol...It was seriously nice though! Havnt enjoyed food that much since I left Nungua!
The flies in the pan...well yeah the flies in the pan we ate lol...Bulunga was introducing me to some new foods...I felt like Bear Grylls to be honest. They didnt even taste bad though, he put garlic salt on it hahahah...but yeah
Till next week hopefully? As the Ghanaians say when we extend commitments..."If god permits" lol...unserious people!
