Hi family,

COOP! Thats so awesome! I cant wait to see that guy! Thats funny you ran into sister corbett....moms just being moms always crying. Elder Corbett gets home in less than a month. So yesterday i met a guy in our branch who lives here but is schooling in accra, just got home from his mission in ivory coast last september, he was companions with elder legere and i guess he talked to him on the phone like a month ago and he's getting married?? Good for him! It was a funny coincidence running into one of his companions on mission in my area haha. He tried calling him when i was there but he was probably in church. Funny.

Jacob bingham is going to el salvador! Thats awesome! The familiy is growing up without me haha. Court of honors and baptisms and birthdays! Next monday is 18 months though...YES!

So this week has been pretty interesting. Elder Joseph and I got to do some teaching with president in our area....of course i was the nervous one. It poured rain the whole time and we ran through puddles and mud going to the next lesson ha. Normally would of jsut waited til the rain stopped, but had to step it up with president around ha.

Yesterday we had a branch council meeting that started with a huge pot full of yams and a bunch of stew....best branch council meeting ive ever heard of! Its a smart way to make sure everyone shows up....bring food!! The church is true! Also yesterday we recieved a phone call from a family in our branch that just got baptized maybe 2 months ago....the woman said her and her husband were getting divorced. My heart dropped and we hoped they would be at church so we could have the branch president meet with them. They came to church seperately and left seperately and only the wife talked to the branch president. The wife and husband both called us wanting us to come over that evening...we went over and the wife wasnt there so we acted like everything was ok since the husband never told us what was going on....so we taught a lesson from the Family a proclamation to the world....it went alright ha. In the middle of the lesson the wife came home and joined the lesson, akward feeling in the house. After the lesson things opened up and the husband told us the whole story and arguments were flying back and forth and we tried to cool things down and tell them that we cant do any counseling but that the branch president could really help. The wife refused but i think things ended in the right direction....we're praying for them. Two young boys that are hilarious and full of energy. I love this family! Members really look up to missionaries and they think we can fix everything....its just not this way at home, nobody would call the missionaries to come save the day, but thats how it is here.

Thats all ive really got for this week! I love you guys!

Love Cody
