Wow the internet here in Oda just keeps getting slower and slower.
Also the power keeps goin out. So I'll keep things brief and
hopefully get this sent.
This week wasn't the easiest. The good news is that the baptism went
on successfully, Justice Frempong was baptized by his father B.A.
Frempong. It was really great. He's been friends with all the return
missionaries for a long long time and Elder Kivaya's been teaching him
for almost forever. Everyone was really happy that he has finally
entered the fold.
Other stuff that happened this week was zone interviews, rain storms,
splits, flat tire, and the zone leaders coming for district meeting.
Zone Interviews were in Kofiridua as usual, so that took out
practically the whole day. They were good as usual.
I love you guys, keep up the good work. Miracles are happening
everyday of our lives. We just don't pay attention.
Hello everyone. It was great talking to you guys yesterday. It was
really cool to hear your voices again. The internet is suuuper slow
today so I don't have much time to write. I'm glad you guys are all
doing well. I'm a bit jealous of Spencer getting to listen to music
all the time and play tons of frisbee.
This week is going to be pretty busy for us. The Zone Leaders are
coming down tonight to attend District meeting tomorrow and then do
splits to Asamankese, and before they go we have to get Elder Stout to
do our baptismal interview right after District Meeting. Then on
Friday we'll being going to Kof. town for zone interviews. Then on
Saturday we have our baptism and we might help out with aaronic
priesthood commemoration day. Also we have to to meet with Sarah and
her son Thomas as well as Ophelia and her twin boys, Owusu Kwakye #1
and #2, and explain that we are postponing their baptisms until they
can have time for us to finish going over the lessons.
Well my times about up. Hopefully next week I'll be able to write
more. I love you guys all tons. I\m happy that I got to talk to you
Elder Bradford Chambers
Howdy everyone. I hope you are all doing well. It sounds like you
guys really had a busy week. Everyone seems like they are doing
Here in Oda we had a pretty good week. Elder Kivaya's fine. Nothing
exciting except we had some rain storms. On sunday we got to watch a
session of General Conference which was nice. I think it was Sunday
morning's. We are having trouble getting the people we teach to apply
what they learn to themselves (both members and investigators) without
us just telling them. When we teach we have been told over and over
that the way we have to do it is not by pouring information on them
but by drawing information out of them. That is working pretty well
but then they can't see how they need to change their lives to live
what they learn. Well we're still practicing. In the mission we are
trying to improve on the three things Elder Holland said missionaries
generally don't do well: study, plan, teach for commitment.
With Mother's Day we will get to call, but I don't know how because
they haven't given us the phone chips like they did for Christmas. So
unless someone brings us the chips from Accra... I don't really know
what will happen, but we'll certainly get the chance to call, but
maybe not on Sunday. It's tricky for the zone because we are all
spread out and far from Accra. Everyone else in the Mission will be
calling on Mother's day though. Either I think I'll try to call
around the same time as Christmas or I'll email next Monday and tell
you when I'll call.
I can't believe it's AP tests already. That means Graduation will be
any time now. Nice job Donovan. Good luck to Uncle Bryan and Connor.
Congrats to Aunt Emily. Happy Birthday Ellery. Keep up the good
work everyone else. Well, tell everyone I love them. I can't think
of anything I need, but I'll let you know if I do. Enjoy yourselves!
