Hey Mom and Dad!
Well it has been an awesome week in Juapong just gone! It hasn't rained at all, so teaching went down solidly!
My new companion Elder Palmer is great too. He's really humble, and loved the gospel and the people! So we get along, and it's fun to get out and show him around the area.
We've been blessed with a whole tonne of new investigators though. Our Branch President opened a business, and all those that work for him and are using his financing service have shown interest in the Gospel as he shows a great example to them in the way he conducts his business and social ethics. Top guy! But as a result we've been able to teach alot of them and they have turned out to be really serious! We plan to extend some baptismal dates to them this week which should be sweet. Three of them were at sacrament on Sunday as well which was awesome.
What a great impact that one example can have on so many people though! President Kassah is an awesome example of letting our light shine as members. It's kind of interesting actually. We dont always have to tell people that we are members with our words, but it's by our everyday actions that people can see that 'light' that the gospel gives. Something as missionaries that I've come to see living the gospel everyday 24/7 is that people are just generally interested in why you do this and why you dont do this and such...and it just helps the work progress. Always important to recognize that the way we conduct ourselves in public as members can greatly affect the perspective of someone about the church!
We have some baptisms coming up at the end of the month which is nice. We are planning to extend a few more for the end of the month and the start of september which should be sweet too! Alot of awesome work is steadily and gradually about to happen!
It's been a really fun week though. We've had some great lessons with some wonderful people! I always love teaching about the Restoration out here in Ghana and especially at the part with Joseph Smith, you can see the light and hope in the people eyes when they here about it. It really is awesome, and you can just feel the spirit so strongly! It's really great seeing them put their faith and hope to the test when they keep their commitments and come to church. This work is so so great!
Elder Palmer and I are doing good though! We are both looking forward to another week of no rain and plenty of lessons haha! Hope you's are well though! Have an awesome week Mom and Dad! Love you xx
