Well Happy Easter! Sorry we were unable to cafe yesterday! So coming in a day late! It was a public holiday here in Ghana so most of the cafes were shut!
Anyhow, our week was okay! We were'nt able to teach as many lessons as we planned or liked, but it was alright! The rain continues to disturb every other day, and when it does, people hide...lol it can flood pretty hardcore sometimes! Nothing to serious though. Enough to scare the people though haha.
One of our investigators Rose, is progressing super well. We were able to see her a few times during the week, and she is always reading the assignments we leave her in the Book of Mormon. She expressed her concern of coming to church though as she attends the same church as her mother and she is pressured alot by her! So we plan to see both her and her mother during this week and try and teach them together. We've tried in the past, but it kept falling through. Praying this week it will happen though!
Each week we also try to visit Sister Comfort she is an Elderly lady who cant make it to church because she can't walk. However she is always reading the Book of Mormon that is in Twi. She doesn't speak english either so we go with Bro Buckman to teach her and speak what we can! We saw her this week though and taught her under an Orange tree, whilst eating oranges lol. Was pretty awesome. She is such a devout member tough and just loves the church and it's teaching! She loves the Savior!
During the week we went and visited this one less active sister. Her name is Rose aswell and she hasn't been to church in ages. We visited her with the Branch President the week before last and we followed up with her again. We talked about the temple and she had been in before to do baptisms. I asked her how she felt when she was inside the temple and these were her words, "I never wanted to leave". Wow. I know temples are like heaven on earth, and they give us a slight glimpse of Heavenly Father's Kingdom. So we told her for her to enter again and feel of that peace and joy, she has to start coming to church, reading and praying again. She committed!
Easter weekend was pretty sweet though! It made teaching a little sucky as literally everyone had their church programs to go too! Full on easter camps for churches and all that stuff from Thursday to Sunday where they just pray, dance and have live bands lol! Funny guys! So it disrupted our teaching appointments!
Sunday was wonderful though! We confirmed Samuel too which was sweet. It was nice to just reflect on the Atoning Sacrifice of Jesus Christ though. You simply just cannot comprehend it all. We just have to be grateful and show our love back through our obedience to his gospel.
That's it for this week though! Hope you guys have an awesome week! Time is really working against me here! I want to do so much, but time is ticking by too fast! It's scary! Love yous though!
