A Christmas Party

Hello family!! one day i will learn how to say that in twi just so i can type in as the subject line in my email. 

I dont have too much to talk about. i feel like i said a lot on the phone. but i will try to remember some stuff that happened.

This week we haven't been able to proselyte as much as i would have liked. almost everyday we had something that we had to go to, and lost half a day or a whole day even. but we made the most of our time. we taught 17 lessons in about a total of two days work haha. i was sad that we couldn't see more people. on Christmas eve we had a stake Christmas party, and all of the wards did a musical program. and the missionaries from the kasoa zone had to do one as well. we sang how great thou art in twi, and a twi Christmas song called a fiesha pa, and then we sand little drummer boy, and feliz navidad. it was so fun!! there were drums and trumpets and trombones and it was a blast. Ghanaians love their music. then Christmas we had a good day calling. on the 26th we had another party for the ward. it was their end of the year party. people just kept giving me food and soda! i ate so much food!! and today we are going to a members house for a Christmas party with the whole kasoa zone and all of the keneshi zone! there will be 50 missionaries there. haha that is a third of our whole mission.. it will be fun. that is why i am emailing so early. we have to be there at noon, and it will go until 6 probably. 

But i hope you all have a great week in mexico! I will miss that place so much!! 
love you all, stay safe!! i dont think i can send pictures this week.. :( sorry! we have to leave the cafe soon. but i will send as many as i can next week! love you tons! tell oakley i said hi! and lexi. and tell him to email me! talk to you next week!
