New couple missionaries-"The Zolls" 06/29/11

Posted

yo ma!
The week has been pretty crazy, lots going on. First on wednesday we get a call from the ZLs telling us to pick up our 3rd companion since one guy had to be transferred to cape, so we took his companion with us. The guy with us is elder leko and came in elder harris's group. He's a sweet guy from uganda! So we had him with us all week.

Saturday he said there was a planned service project in between our two areas, we went and helped a bunch of non-member woman bake bread in those mud ovens....the round dome shaped ones with a single door. We have some pictures so u can see...maybe next week with the pictures.

Sunday we had a combined baptism at Asokwa for the Daban and Atonsu groups that both came off of asokwa. We are the ones with the font so they came to our ward after sacrament and sunday school. It was a pretty sweet baptism, 3 people and two of them were a husband and a wife. Nobody baptized from us though, not yet!! After that we went to see some less active recent converts....one was sick and the other had traveled somewhere, excuses excuses. They are powerful guys, they jsut need a little push.

Then we stopped by our apartments and met president and sister sabey with Elder and Sister Bennett and the new couples....Elder and sister Zoll (Bonnie and Bud, they havent gotten used to calling each other elder and sister zoll yet so we know their first names well haha). They are hilarious!! They are converts to the church contacted by two elders in OREM!! Now they have 5 sealed children with 19 grandchildren all strong in the church, wow!! He is an ex-marine and just retired from as a lawyer. I love them haha. Today was there first day out and we took them to the chapel to pass out subsistance for all the missionaries and they got to spend some time with all of us getting to know us. Afterwards we went to town and showed them some few places to buy some things they needed, lots of people trying to take advantage of them....This is Ghana. Then they took us for pizza....they have been treating us like kings ever since we got here, we've been very thankful and i feel very spoiled!! They are so ready to get going, but they just dont know kumasi or the leaders here yet so im going to be helping them a lot, which is sweet cuz they are awesome!! They are from sandy, UT.

Elder Lytle is home, wow!! Love that kid!! :) Zac is engaged!! Holy crap! haha too soon for me too. :)

Love you, have a sweet week!! The Zolls want me to extend cuz 2 months isnt long enough haha, he says he'll tie me down and water board me if i dont!!

Love Elder Lehr
