'Sup fam :)
This week was a lot of fun! we had a combined mission conference with the Accra mission on Wednesday morning, and because the Winneba zone is so far away from Accra, we all got to sleep in various apartments throughout Accra on Tuesday night. Elder Broadhead and i slept at the assistant's apartment, and on Wednesday morning, we went on a mini split with them and took trucks to the airport to pick up all the new missionaries coming from the Provo MTC. (one of which was Elder Christiansen from pleasant grove!)

It was weird being back at the airport after this past 11 and a half months. As i watched the new missionaries coming through the gates i had some major flashbacks to my first day in Ghana. I tried to remember how i was feeling, and what was going through my mind at that time.
This also made me reflect on my mission so far. I was almost in tears thinking about my mission memories, companions, areas, investigators, and just Ghana in general. I truly love my mission and being here has helped me to realize how much my Heavenly Father knows and loves me. It amazes me to think about. I am so grateful to be here, with such wonderful people. The Lord's hand really is in the details of our lives. Everywhere i look i can see His infinite love for us.
We also had the privilege to listen to an Apostle of Jesus Christ speak to us. Elder Gary E. Stevenson is such a great speaker. He talked a little bit about Christ-like attributes. He quoted in PMG when it says, "just as important as what we do, however, is who we are." It made me think about who i am, and what i am doing. We need to ask ourselves each day if what we are doing, will make us who our Heavenly Father wants us to be.
It was also really nice to see some friends from the mtc who are in the Accra mission. I felt like the sons of Mosiah :)
I love this life so much. I love the Savior, and He loves each of us individually and infinitely. I love you too ;)
have a great week and keep living!
love ELDER BEN
