Hey everybody! Hope you guys are all doing great. I love you guys so much. I was able to get the cheesecake. It was delicious! Thanks for everything.
Anyway so the most exciting news is that on tuesday Pres. Judd called
to tell me that I'm going on transfer on friday. He asked me to come
and be the district leader in Mamponse. So that's where I am now and
I guess where I'll stay until I go home. On Tuesday we had a lot of
struggle to help Joel Gyan get to his baptism interview. He stays
about a 35 min bike ride from the chapel. We were waiting for him at
the chapel when he called us that he didn't have any transportation
there. So we had to ride to his house and take him to the ward
mission leader's house and borrow a bicycle so that the three of us
could ride back to the chapel. So I'm hoping on Saturday everything
went well with the baptism.
This week I also had a lot of great experiences teaching with the
Book of Mormon. On Wednesday Elder Sesay and I were tired and by 8:30
we were feeling ready to go home and have dinner. We decided to call
our last appointment half hoping she'd cancel on us. When we called
her the call was cut and when we tried to call back the phone was off.
We decided to go ahead and see her anyway. When we got there she had
had a pretty rough day and was feeling sick. We were inspired to
share 2 Nephi 4:15-35 with her. She was reluctant at first, but as we
read she really got into it and was cheered up by it a lot. I really
felt the spirit strongly myself as I read vss. 27-29. They were
really important to me. The second experience was the day I was
leaving Teshie. We went to see a woman who we had taught for a long
time, but we had to stop teaching her because she couldn't come to the
church on Sundays. Since I was saying goodbye to her we told her we'd
read Nephi's farewell from 2 Nephi 33. The scriptures really touched
hey and she was a bit choked up by all the spirit. She told us that
the other day her husband had said if she wants to start coming to the
church it is ok. She promised that she'll start coming. She was so
happy that day and said she was sorry that I'm going to miss here
When I came here to Mamponse I was really encouraged by all the
Elders in the apartment. My new/old companion is Elder Maloni (if you
can remember he was my companion on my birthday last year in Alajo).
I'm really excited to be back with him. He is a hard worker, and that
seems true of Elder Succo and Elder Treu as well. They are both from
Utah, and they are both new missionaries. Elder Succo is 3 months and
is training Elder Treu who is 1 month. All of us are teaching mostly
newer investigators. We had a baptism for one woman on Saturday. Her
husband is a recent convert and as a priest he did a great job
performing the baptism. Her name is Theresa Azumah. We had to fill
the font for her twice. When we filled it on Friday night we forgot
to close the drain and the water escaped. I love you guys and I'm
excited to finish my mission strong. President Judd is always asking
us to sprint to the finish.
Love you guys.
