Hey Family and Friends
This week was nothing special except that we received transfer news on Saturday night. But before I talk about the big news, let me review the days preceding Saturday.
Monday I went to Kumasi and saw tons of missionaries around and it was nice to be able to greet them and know they are doing fine. It reminded me of civilization again haha, but I do enjoy being in the bush/village.
Tuesday - was district meeting. I instructed the District on working with members and branch leaders to progress the work. It seems that is the biggest challenge in the Ghana branches. The members do not want to go out with the missionaries and be fellow shippers to the investigators and new members. The goal is to become more effective and efficient missionaries even if we teach a lower amount of lessons. This upcoming Sunday we will be having a meeting with the branch presidency and will discuss these matters and we will see what they say.
Wed - Friday . . .just normal proselyting days. Nothing much.
Saturday - In the evening I got a call from the Zone leaders giving me the district's transfer news. So it turns out that only one of the elders in the district is being transferred and he is going to Tamale haha. So I will be in Nkawkaw another transfer with my companion. The apartment is still the same 4 elders.. so nothing really changed for us. But it will be another transfer with new beginnings and new goals.
Today two of the missionaries in our apartment traveled to Kumasi to buy some things so the apartment was nice and quite and I was actually able to relax small and take a nap. You know me and my naps... it is a must every now and then haha.
Things are going pretty well in Nkawkaw. Their are challenges but nothing that cannot be overcome. It is a good learning experience and I am looking forward to coming out on top because of these experiences here. I love the gospel and know that it is as true as me breathing right now. As long as I live I will know and testify that this Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true and living church of the Father. Jesus Christ is my savior and friend. I am grateful for what he has done for all of us and for the real redeeming power that can be felt from day to day. I love all of you and am thankful for those who support me in this decision to serve the people of Ghana by giving them the gospel for their salvation sake. God bless you all and have a wonderful week. Look for the blessings that are given to you whether big or small... but trust me they are there
