A Day Late.........& probably a dollar short :)



I miss you guys like crazy haha. Mothers day will be great!! What time is church 11am? Ill try to call when you guys get out of church, if not then ill do it before. Its a 7 hour difference so we'll see. Just be prepared, it all depends on the other elders in the apartment. Well this week was freakin great! Mostly because of what happened Sunday...So Edmund (the old man who's wife is still in accra:( ) Came to church again and now is hopefully getting baptized on the 16th!! Im stoked for that...except that his wife isnt here in Kumasi yet. Anyways....later that night we had an appointment set up with Harrison (the college nurse guy who has a party life style, like 23) and asked President before hand if he'd go with us to interview him for baptism since he has had some problems. IT WAS SWEET!!! To be honest it was a little nerve racking being with president and teaching small with him. Idk i shouldn't of been nervous but i still was haha. It went soooo well!! Harrison has a few small things to do and just needs to make a commitment to follow the Law of Chastity which he said he'd do....hopefully he is baptized the same day with Edmund! Peter is another investigator who is ready for baptism and needs to come to church so that he can be baptized....maybe 3 future leaders all baptized in a few weeks! Its exciting news for Asokwa! THEY NEED PRIESTHOOD! haha.

Next week Sunday we get to go to UST chapel and watch 2 sessions, probably one from Saturday and one from Sunday...The Elders in that ward are going to ask to stay and watch the rest of the CD's. So we'll see! Im so stoked for that!! I cant believe im having two general conferences in the same ward for the last 8-9 months. Its kinda crazy that I've been here in one area that long but I'm loving it! So hopefully no transfers again!:D Never know with president (or should i say,The Lord) though! The following Sunday is Stake conference and more importantly, MOTHERS DAY PHONE CALL! :D

This week has been really awesome....the lessons are flowing and Elder Clements and I really feel like we have been blessed this whole week. We can see it in how well the lessons have gone and how well the investigators have responded. The Lord is really helping us and we can feel Him there! I just love that. Our ward is becoming more helpful and productive, especially since they changed leadership and a young returned missionary is now the Elders Quorum Prez. Its sweet...he went with us on Sunday for a little while and with the other elders on Saturday along with our ward mission leader (first time for him since I've been here). It seems to be going well... they have officially started home teaching finally...5 months later after telling us they would haha. I love the ward and the members though!! :D

Well that's all that has really happened this week except the usual teaching and district meetings. We had interviews yesterday and it didn't seem like anyone is going for our district, but you never know. I did get the package and loved it!! We used the chopper that day making garlic bread! Chopped up some garlic and fried it in butter...thanks to Sister Kiffer, she told us to try it!! Makes spaghetti so much better and its legit garlic bread! Or maybe my tastes are changing haha.

I love you guys!!
