Another Great Week in Africa!!!!!

Dear Family,

This week has been Great!!! im sorry my time is really short so i will try and get the  highlights in!!!

This week we had transfers, lessons, walking, talking, confirmations, sweating, struggling, enduring, laughing, crying, miracles, mistakes,learning, and about a million other things.

We had a big transfer this week and about half of the zone got transfered out so you can imagine how fun it was to put people on tro tros and coordinate it all luckily everyone did their job and we have a lot of new faces now. transfers are hard  for a little while because elders have to get to know new companions  and new areas but once things get going they are great! they  boost the zone and things get looked at and done in new ways! everyone has their own thing to offer and it makes something amazing!

there is a brand new missionary in our apartment and his name is elder Brown. he is from Rigby and went to mud lake highschool, mom i figured you might know it since its in idaho falls. he is great and full of energy. culture shock is taking its toll though and i forgot what it was all like! hahaha this place has grown to be my home right now and its all normal to me. i love ghana!

We had a member in our ward pass away last week so his funeral was this weekend. it was....welll....a ghanaian funeral! hahaha it was so funny because there were all these tents and chairs set up in this big place and it was set to start at 8. at 8:40 all the chairs were empty except for where the members were. tons of people always come to funerals, members and nonmembers alike and non of them were there. you thought mormon standard time was bad....hahaha ghana man time is worse!!! but it was great because it was and opportunity to share the gospel with those not of our faith and some things are coming out of it.

This Sunday Fred was confirmed and and recieved the gift of the holy ghost. he was also given the Aaronic priesthood. he is great and he is going to be a big strength to the ward. he says he wants to serve a mission too and  that is pretty exciting.

Guess what! i love being in a companionship. working by yourself is horrible but the two man team is the most effective! right dad??? hahaha i love being here and i love this work!!!!

i love you all and i hope you have a great week!!!!
