Hello everyone,

this week was such a great week! I cant believe all the blessings we received this week, and i am so grateful for what happened.

The past couple of weeks have been pretty difficult and frustrating, but because of our willingness to not give up and keep trying, the blessings started to flow.

The week started off good with a great MLC. Staying at president's house never gets old ;) Sister Simpson gave us two bottles of soda before dinner, some mashed potatoes with mince for dinner, which to you probably doesn't sound that good, but when you have been in Ghana for as long as i have it is amazing! haha and she also gave us root beer and some ice cream with fruit for dessert. After that i just had to lie down on the couch and relax haha

President also put on the Sunday morning session for us which was really good! We didn't get to watch all of it because it was too late, but i was grateful for the part i got to watch.
MLC was good, and Elder Broadhead gave his dying testimony because it is his last MLC before he goes home. He was super close to crying, and i am glad he didn't, because i probably would have cried too. I'm sure going to miss this guy.

The rest of the week, we were blessed with so many new people to teach and helping all of our investigators progress. I was so grateful each day coming home and just feeling absolutely exhausted with a feeling of accomplishment.

We had a miracle on Friday night. We planned to see an investigator who lives pretty far away in a small village called Asafo, and when we got there she was sick, so we couldn't see her. So we didn't really know what we were going to do because we were so far away from everyone else that we are working with, but we both got a random idea to go and visit a recent convert. He was baptized a few months ago, and his niece who is staying with him was just recently baptized. It took about 15 minutes to get there by taxi, but when we finally got there, J our recent converts wife came out of no where and said she was ready to be baptized now! She was going to get baptized the same day as her husband, but the day of she backed out and said she wasnt ready. Since then we just kind of gave her time to think and see what happens. Now we are preparing her to be baptized this month after we review the lessons with her :) For some people, it just takes a little longer for them to become converted to the gospel. But all who diligently seek, will find.

I'm so grateful for this gospel and for my mission experience. I love it so much. Thank you for all your support and love. Have a great week!

Love Elder Ben
