Well this week zipped by! It was a pretty busy week indeed! Time is continuing to flash by, and before you know it I'll be back lol! But anyway...
This week we had done a lot of finding and contacting which was sweet! We met some new people who are very sincere and we have been working with one of the branch missionaries who is a legend! His name is Richard and he's still in young mens. He's 17. So he has been going out with us every other day and helping us to teach/translate and also introducing us to some of his friends.
The work is going well here! There are alot of people that are willing to listen and learn! A big switch from being in Sakumono! So it is a breeze getting to talk to alot more people and them giving you time! We have 2 people that are progressing for baptism! One guy is Asare. He has actually been taught by missionaries for a while, but he is now making progressing steps towards the waters of baptism later this March!
Saturday was a great day though! The members here in Effiduase are really trying to help the gospel get around! We had a missionary activity where in the morning we went out with members to visit Less Actives and do some contacting! It was really successful! People we visited were delighted to see members and feel of their love and concern for their well being.
In the afternoon we had a fireside! It was supposed to start at 3pm but because of the rain we pushed it back to 5pm. In the end though the turnout was awesome! Many of the members came, us missionaries gave talks on how the members can be more involved and we all done role plays! It was so fun! You could feel the excitement and joy of sharing the Gospel amongst the congregation! It seems as though people are keen to share the Gospel with their friends as a result. We've recieved a few referrals!
Church yesterday was amazing. It was a great fast Sunday. There was a baby blessing and many family/ friends of the family were there to support. Many of them were non members. So there were about 26 people in our investigators class...it was PACKED. The Branch mission leader wanted the class to be an open discussion where people could ask questions and we would answer! It all went really well! As a result we got 26 peoples contacts and many of them are very interested in learning more! SO, there is a lot of work to do, following up on them! So i'm pumped!
It is such a great opportunity to share the Gospel with these people. I'm grateful for the Great Plan of Redemption. For the Atonement. For Repentance and forgiveness of sins. For the Joy, Guidance and peace that this Gospel Brings. I feel that we can take it for granted at times, but I know with all my heart it is all true. Heavenly Father is willing to bless all those who humble themselves and come unto him. I'm grateful for this knowledge I have and The joy I experience in sharing it with others!
I hope you guys have a great week though! I'm grateful for the work we do because it keeps my mind occupied so I don't start thinking about home lol! Love you's though!
