Well this week has been awesome. It's been raining a tonne this week which has been a little annoying but it's made the air cool which is really nice! Our apartment kind of flooded because the rain was just so intense a few of the days this week. But nothing to serious again. All good though. It's nice to get to mop in the morning lol.
Elder Bankole and I have been great though! We are still going around Effiduase trying to talk to and teach all those that are willing to listen to us! Alot of people here just don't speak that much english so it can be pretty interesting at times, but they always crack up when we start speaking Twi. It's fun though. We've been going out teaching with some members during the week which is making things a bit more smooth too!
This week we have our district conference so our baptisms have to be postponed to next week! We are planning to have 5 so that should be awesome! 4 of them are the grandchildren of one of the sisters in our ward! We teach them all together and they are super brilliant! The other one is Joseph who we started teaching last month! He has been coming to church every sunday since we met him and the guy is a legend! He is crack up! So sincere though and willing to do whatever is asked from the Lord. Every commanded we talked to him about last week he was willing to keep for the rest of his life. He talked to us how he knew it was all true, and the peace and joy he felt at church. It's amazing how hard Heavenly Father is working to help and prepare so many people to receive the Gospel. I know he hears and answers each and every single one of our prayers!
During the week we went and offered service at one of the members farms! Was so crazy hot that day, but we were able to get a tonne of work done and it was cool to just get to work on the farm! We were just harvesting pineapples, planting some plantain trees and doing a TONNE of weeding with cutlasses. So it was a pretty solid service project and we might go again in the coming weeks! Was a tonne of fun though as we were with one of the YSA and also some of the young men.
I've been reading a lot from the book Jesus the Christ lately and each time I pick that book up and read I learn something new about the Savior. It continues to increase my love and desire to follow him and be better everyday as I come to learn more about his perfect character and willingness to do whatever Heavenly Fathers will is because of his love for us and the Father. I'm just grateful for his example that I can look to for guidance and courage each and everyday. I know that he has overcome the world, and so can we as we put our trust in him, keep his commandments and offer a broken heart and contrite spirit.
I suppose that is it for this week though! I suppose I will wish you a Happy Mothers day for this Sunday Mom! Looking forward to getting to call! I can't believe how fast time is flying though. Felt like yesterday we were skyping around Christmas and you guys were being sad eating donuts in front of us haha.
Hope you's have a wonderful week though! Love yous!
