Hey Mom and Dad!
So this past week wasn't too bad at all! Elder Winborg and I kind of at the start of the week walked around our whole new area just to get a feel of where the boundry is and just sus out landmarks and somehow roads that pass through! Navigating here is really like turn left at the mango tree and then right at the traditional house haha! So It's fun getting to know a new area!
We really have been focusing our efforts on finding and contacting in this new area though! This always is so fun as we are just meeting new people and getting to share the gospel while we do so! We have been able to find some very interested people who we are following up with this week, so our efforts are paying off!
We have a conference tomorrow since one of hte members from the Quorum of the 70 is coming to Ghana. So we have like a Mission tour and the conference is part of it! Lucky me, I got assigned to give a talk at it haha! Should be good though, they want me to talk about conversion, and how as a missionary, I have used the Book of Mormon to help others in their own conversion process! Should be good!
Church yesterday was interesting! The ward is so small now, but our new bishopric is awesome! They are all so young! The Lord qualifies those he calls though! Hopefully I get to stay here another transfer to see the ward grow small!
The transfer ends this week, so transfer news will be rolling along to us all during the week! So we will see what President has planned for us all! I'm looking forward to seeing all the changes!
It was good to catch up with Wilberforce too! He's the younger brother of our used to be Ward mission leader! One of the guys i first befriended here in Nungua when I first arrived! He got his mission call December and left to the MTC on Tuesday just gone! Serving in Nigeria, he'll be an awesome missionary! He would always come proselyting with us, so it was awesome to catch up with him before he left! He went back to his home town the last few months to spend time with his family!
Elder Winborg is doing good, and me too! We've got a busy week coming up with alot of people we need to follow up on! All the members keep telling us we got alot of work to do because the ward is small haha! We plan to work with them and see if they dont have any friends that they have shared the gospel with and are willing to refer!
All is well in Nungua though! I'm starting to get called the chief of Nungua because of how long I've been here haha! Hope you guys are good though! Love you's! xx
Pics from this past week!
Wilberforce one of the guys I first met here who was preparing for his mission finally got his call last year and left on Tuesday to enter the MTC in Ghana! He's serving in Nigeria Benin City, so we went and caught up with him and got pizza!!!
Some pics of our whole ward, and the Elders quorum and High Priests haha!
