Hey Family,

How are you? mom, Stop crying yet? Bahaha I'm sorry to laugh....just funny how we both have the same feelings sometimes. Some days its just not easy to be so far away. Two years is a long time but the year is coming so i guess that came quick. Of course I'm your favorite son, I'm your only son even though Tine is a tough girl and Bug plays sports like a guy. HAHA Don't tell them that. Ohh World Cup...Just hoping the US beats Algeria then we can advance and maybe play Ghana for the first game, haha that would be interesting and fun. Everyone here goes crazy when somebody scores, especially African teams and of course Brasil... They are just too good.

My companion will probably be transferred this transfer, president has kind of hinted that he has been here long enough and needs a change. Just hope i don't train a new missionary here. There are 3 elders leaving next week and 12 coming so lots of expansion in some areas and a lot of people training and all that junk. It'll be interesting.

Sorry for Manny....hes dang good so who cares about Boston fans. Haha. Dodgers still good this year or what??

My Branch President here is as young as Bishop Prince and he is a stud too! He served his mission here and served in Asokwa way back when and was a zone leader there haha. Hes a sweet guy and knows what he is doing. This branch has only been here for maybe 5 years and is a branch of from another branch down the road. This area is growing pretty fast compared to other places. We are finishing the family goal this week Friday with a baptism of 6 including a sweet family. The husband and wife have two other kids we are going to start teaching and we contacted them during a world cup game so they both qualify for the next mission goal that has already started. I'm not worried about the missionary work next transfer, just worried about the new companion I'll probably be getting. Never know...

That's freakin sweet about Nate Waggoner's mission call! Philippines will be sweet!!!! That place is growing! He'll probably speak Tigalo... That's what the member who was in Asokwa who was from the Philippines spoke. They are a sweet people! Landon?? No mission call? We wont see each other for at least 3 years now haha....sucky.

Yes the soups are the same as in Kumasi...i just like how they cook them here....much better. I'm a machine now when it comes to eating fufu....i wasn't til this transfer because the soups weren't that good. I love abenkwine...which is palm nut soup. Its these orange colored nuts that grow on huge palm trees that they grind up. It makes your whole face orange and your hand orange. Its sweet. Its my favorite soup!!

We are hopefully going to Cacum next Monday just us four... its the rope bridge place you've probably seen pictures of. We'll see if we can go.

Well i love you!
