Hey Mom and Dad!
So this week went by super quick. This week was busy! I left my planner at the flat so i cant recall everything we done off the top of my head, so here goes!
So we've been really focusing on our investigators who have set baptismal dates. I was so happy yesterday seeing 5 of them at church yesterday. Theyre really progressing well. Its awesome seeing them show faith and sacrificing time to get up and walk to church. Our ward starts at 8am and some of these people live about a 30 min walk away from the chapel. Usually we leave the house at about 7:15am. I thought Frankston ward started early lol! This week was the primary presentation though, and it was an awesome Sunday at Church.
Theres this guy Godwin, who we started teaching when i first arrived in Nungua. We taught him for a week or 2, and then he began to be not too serious. So we left him for 2 weeks and we came across him walking on the street last week. What do you know, he wanted to learn again, so we started teaching him again last week. He's however recieving the gospel really well this time around. Hes been keeping commitments, and he came to church this sunday. I think helping him understand Christ's mission and Atonement really opened his eyes. He's been showing alot of faith, and is always calling us lol. Super awesome guy though.
We were also able to give a priesthood blessing to one of these other guys were teaching. Jyemisi is an older guy who has been suffering from pains in his hip. We were teaching him about the Priesthood and he asked ask for a blessing. It was such an awesome opportunity to exercise the priesthood and serve another brother in need! This guy though when we first taught him didnt have a belief in Jesus Christ. But over the last few weeks its been super awesome seeing him grow in faith in the Savior and hes just shining.
I could talk about the people all day though, so ill move on! I really love them ay! For us we usually email around 3-4pm. Were usually washing and cleaning from 7-12 and then playing basketball or soccer for a few hours then we hit up the internet cafe.
I was super happy to see an email from a certain someone. Someone who was able to pass this sacrament this week! Im super proud that Keanu was able to pass! Ill be there to witness it one day in 2 years lol! Its awesome that hes settling in in youth and getting pumped about church. His hair looks skux too. Now he just has to style that moustache! lol!
We have a ward activity coming up in a few weeks that has been postponed like 2 times now lol! Were watching meet the mormons for the activity. So hopefully it will be a good turnout. Itll be awesome to see the members bring their friends, and its an awesome opportunity for them to participate in the missionary work. The members are just such a great help, and our Bishop (bishop Kakari) is awesome.
The food is good though! I think ive adjusted to the pepe lol! Still getting used to the fish though, sometimes its just super funky lol! Not just the smell but the taste also! But you just eat some banku or fufu with it quickly to get it down! This family we go to see everyweek prepares a traditional Ghanaian meal everytime we see them which is always great. Its good to talk to locals and know what foods theyre talking about. Its an easy way to relate to them!
I dont have any photos this week...fail! My Camera has been dead and i just kept forgetting to charge it. Ive been looking around for clippers here though to cut my hair. Cant seem to find in good ones, ive been looking for those Wahl ones like we had back home. Good news though, our sub went up to 360 Ghana Cedis! Oh Yeah! lol....
Thats good though dad that youre still going at the work outs mate! Keep it up! Just PLAN your meals! One thing ive really learnt out here is just to always plan, and it works out.
Mom ill get the pic to you soon, i keep forgetting, but ill take one this week. I hadnt cut my hair last week either so i didnt wanna take one with a bodge haircut lol! Thatll be fun talking at the Regional class!
But anyway, it sounds like all is well with the Rhonda crew ay! Everything is all good in Nungua, our water is running again! Theres still 6 of us in the small apartment. Still waiting for the Senior missionaries to find the other 2 another apartment because theirs was being broken into! But everything is fine, my pants and shirts and what not are all good! Just looking for those clippers around town! But hope this upcoming weeks a good one!
Love you heaps Mom and Dad!
