Hello everyone! Happy Birthday Connor! I hope you guys are doing good. From what Mom has said it sounds like you guys are really busy this week. We've been pretty busy here too. On Saturday, we were able to have the baptisms for stephen, charity, and janet. They are doing great. Stephen was late to both the baptism and to sacrament, but he made it in time to be confirmed, and next week he'll be sustained and ordained as a priest. We are going to be working this week with Michael Kim. In fact right after the cafe we'll be going to try and see him. We just have a couple things left to go over with him and he'll be ready to be baptized on Saturday. Time is really flying here. I can't really tell what's up with the weather, I don't know what it's supposed to be doing or what it will do tomorrow. It's rather unpredictable. Excepts it's always hot. Always very hot. Some days it's humid, some days it's dry, some days it's rainy. Anyway, everyone here is really vague and unsure about when or whether the rainy season is. I'm glad to hear you guys are helping Vera. She'll need lots of support as Satan tries his best to shake her. We are always struggling to help our recent converts here. Our Branch President said that in 2008 200 people were baptized into the branch and now today only 10 are active. That's one of the reasons President Smith took all the missionaries out of the bush. And now he's opening the areas up one by one as Accra has become stronger. Well I love you guys a ton, and I pray for you always. Cya later.

Hey everyone, I hope you enjoyed conference. I can't wait to get the Liahona and be able to read the talks. I hope everyone had a happy easter and ate lots of candy. On Saturday I got the two packages you sent mom. Thanks for everything. The letters were good to read and the candy was good to eat. The taco mixes and things should last me for awhile, thanks again. I love you. On Saturday we had zone interviews so we had to travel to Koforidua in the morning, it's like 2.5 hours away. It went pretty well, but we ended up coming home with an extra companion, Elder Stout. So he's tagging along with us until he gets a new companion. It has made things a little more complicated, but you know you just have to deal with what life throws at you. He's been pretty cool to have around though. In the afternoon we went with him to attend the baptisms he had in Kade. On Sunday we had just the normal old fast and testimony. It was weird to think that general conference would be going on this weekend and I wouldn't be watching it. It was a really hot day, and we spent the afternoon walking because we only have 2 bikes. This week the biggest things we have on our to do lists is help Steven Owusu and Janet and Charity get their baptismal interviews and then their baptisms this saturday. They all seem really excited and we all are too. Well I love you guys tons. I hope you are all happy and enjoying life. Love, Elder Bradford Chambers
