Ay Eti Sen, Mahoye (How are you, are you strong/well,,,,lol) I dunno how to spell the language but im learning more and more of it each week!
The weeks have been flying. Were always busy either teaching or walking from appointment to appointment trying to contact. This week has been pretty tiring, but great as always. Weve been teaching/preparing those with a baptismal date and its been good to see them at church, interacting with members. The members in the ward are awesome. Theyre still warming up to us missionaries because of things that have happened in the past between missionaries and members. But they have alot of faith in the work and weve recieved many referrals from them. Its always great to have members present when you teach.
Me and Hatch were talking about our younger brothers this week, because I brought up Keanu's bday. He has a younger brother that is close to Keanu's age. Im so happy for Keanu though. I look forward to the day when i see him passing the sacrament with that ruthless moustache...lol jokes Keanu! But i wish Keanu a HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday. Its crazy to think that at 12, young men can recieve that power and authority that is used to build the kingdom of God. Even though its a small portion of it. As I've been learning about the priesthood and teaching it to our investigators that thought it striking my mind alot. Its such a blessing that we are able to have it in our lives, yet alone hold it. I was able to give one of our investigators (Sarah) a blessing of the sick/afflicted this week which was a wonderful opportunity. She showed alot of faith asking for one. With that great power comes great responsibility. Luke 12:48 (spiderman scripture lol) for Keanu.
You might have to send me some cool recipes lol. Ive mainly been eating eggs, cassava, yam, chicken, and what not. Elder Koronikalou and I are always trying to cook in the appartment lol (Hes the Fijian guy, hes the man). I had this massive bowl of fufu the other day, and it was just way to much. The members (Bro/Sis Opong) who fed us were just laughing at me trying to finish it. Like it was the size of a small watermelon (the amount they gave me) which was in soup with pepe...so my mouth was on fire lol (super spicy).
The work is going great though. The people are really willing to learn so its just up to us to decide how many people we can realisticly manage and teach. As willing as the people are, You dont want to have an overbearing teaching pool where you cant devote proper attention and time to them. You love them, they're sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. Weve been able to extend more baptismal dates for the 5th of Sep though. This past sunday was great. Theres a Helpiing Hands service project at a hospital in Tema. (Multi Stake) So were looking forward to that, Mission president is really pushing us to go. Im pretty excited. Its always fun to interact and work with members and other missionaries from other zones.
Typical Frankston though ay. I think its better here in Ghana than in Frankston lol...Anyway its good youre going at it with that Fitness program. We try to wake up early to run, but usually we just do circuits in the morning. You burn alot walking though.
The ward is just so amazing though. Words cant explain. Sunday is one of my favourite days of the week because were able to just see everyone. The Sacrament too, I've learnt alot about it whilst studying and teaching it. My indivudual studies are focused on investigators so as I study for them I find myself learning a alot of things that I already knew. We only had 1 Free meal last week though, but its all good. Cassava and plantain (green bananas) are decent price.
Those upcoming firesides sound pretty cool though! I dont really need anything though ay! Still reppin my Arsenal top hard lol. I'll keep that thought in mind though. The pictures you's send via email are enough though!
For P-day today we played soccer at the old MTC in Ghana. Our Zone vs Tema Zone. We had to catch 2 Tro tros (those vans with seats in them lol) to get there which was stink though. Nontheless it was a great day though. It went till late so we dont have alot of time to email today.
Everything is fine here in Nungua though. Im still getting burnt by the chilli in all the food lol. Its awesome though. I hope and am sure all is well back in Melbz. Work, School, Church. I wish i could get some of that bread after church back in Frankston lol. Sometimes you dont wanna spend money on bread here coz it just gets eaten my the elders in the appartment. Theres 6 of us here. I know Heavenly Father is looking over you's though. Hope you's have a great week, Mom, Dad and Keanu! Love you all heaps!
