Hey Mom and Dad!
So Elder Winborg and I had another busy week again. So There are currently 5 people preparing for baptism on the 21st of November. At this rate they are all progressing very well. Theyve been coming to church alot and been reading the Book of Mormon. One thing i love to do is read with them a chapter every now and then. There is alot of power in that book!!! I can testify of it.
Really looking forward to this week. President has invited our district to go to the Ghana Accra temple. Itll be my first time there, so im pretty keen! Looking forward to go to the temple again aswell. Itll be good to go as a district!
This guy weve been teaching for a while now finally made it to church this past Sunday. I think the spirit worked in him during sacrament! He is always feeding us when we go to teach him. Kenke and fish!!! Ive learnt to love it haha! To be honest there really isnt any food here i dont love.
Matter of fact last week we went to a Nigerian family's house for FHE. They fed us abar (i think thats how you spell it) which is cassava thats dried and grounded with water. But we ate it with a soup that had....drumroll please...SNAILS! Not gonna lie i was super hesitant. It looked exactly like the ones we find in our backyard back home. Went down though, and i pulled off a smile lol!
Weve been teaching alot with Godwin this week. That guy is solid. He has these 2 friends we are teaching. Potentially going to extend baptismal dates to them this week. Im loving this area so much though, pretty sure ill be transferred in January though.
We had fast Sunday yesterday, because of Stake Conferenece the week before. Was a good day though, plenty of things to fast for on the mission! We ate fufu at a members house in the evening though. They always invite us over Sunday evenings, so thats really nice of them.
Weve had alot of rain these last few days though. Some crazy thunder storms. Pretty cool though! Stink thing is its shredding up the roads/paths in the area because they a dirt roads. Were always helping guys push their cars/motos out of the mud lol.
Ive been reading alot out of the Book of Mormon lately and studying Joseph Smith History. Ive been learning so much from the accounts of the Sons of Mosiah. Those guys are some of the greatest example of missionaries and i learn alot and try to apply the principals that ive learnt from reading about them. We also watch the Resoration DVD with people alot to give them a visual, everytime we watch that you just feel the spirit ay! Ive really just been learning so much everyday.
I loved the pics though of you and mom and the ones of you guys fishing lol! We have permission to go fishing on P-days but i dunno where to buy a rod haha. I wouldnt really wanna fish from the beach in our area anyway...too many floating logs!
Our ward is going great though and our teaching pool is progressing and expanding daily. Our efforts certainly are being rewarded and its amazing to see how many people the Lord is preparing/working on.
I hope you's have another wonderful week! Its always great to hear from you's on monday! The benefits of email! One of the guys in the bishopric was telling us how it used to just be mail...that would be pretty stink!
Love and miss you though Mom and Dad! xx
