Well what a week it has been. Unfortunately this week alot of people decided to dodge our appointments and not keep commitments but it was a sweet week nevertheless!
I've been doing alot of pondering and thinking during our down time and it hit me pretty heavily this week that I would be coming home rather soon than it feels like haha! So I've really just been striving to leave my all out in the field and preach, teach and just open my mouth and get the good word out!
This week we were able to continue to teach this man Joe (Joseph). We met him contacting one day. He actually stayed in the house next door to the person we were supposed to meet with but he was outside digging a make do drain for water to pass. So we spoke to him. This week we followed up with him and he has been reading the Book of Mormon. We taught him about the Gospel and Baptism, and he accepted a date! We were teaching with Buckman, one of the branch missionaries and we invited him to testify about his own conversion to the Gospel and the Savior. The spirit was strong as we also testified and it was just a super cool experience! He proceeded to follow through by coming to Church yesterday! So good!
I also had to do an interview for the Zone Leaders during the week. His name was Kwadwo, and he is deaf. So the way I conducted the interview was with good ol pen and paper! It was a real humbling experience, and he was so ready and prepared to enter into a covenant with god and enter onto the covenant path back to our Father in Heaven! He was really kind, humble and had a burning desire to follow the Savior! I felt the spirit as he wrote his testimony on the paper...really great experience!
It has been awesome proselyting with Bro. Buckman though! It has helped us so much with teaching as we can only speak so much Twi. We were able to visit and teach a heap of people and find some people who are really interested. I feel there will be some awesome work coming along in the up coming weeks!
As I've been studying the Book of Mormon this week, I just hit Alma by the way, I read some interesting things about this not serious guy Nehor haha. He was an anti Christ and went around teaching false doctrines, flattering the people with his words and talking pretty boldly! I pondered it and wondered, man if this guy can teach false doctrines boldly then we knowing the truth, even the restored gospel can do so even 100x more powerfully, effectively!!! In a world where there a doctrines and philosophies of men leading us away from the Savior, we need to open our mouths and help people know about the true source of happiness, hope and peace. Jesus Christ! It is awesome to get to do this day in and day out and see the miracle of change it brings to the lives of those that listen and apply it to their lives!
I think that's all for this week though! Only a few more weeks till Mothers Day lol! Keen to get to talk! Hope you's have an awesome week though! Love you Mom and Dad!
