Fufu in the Bush

Hey Fam!

This week was great. We seem to get busier and busier each week and i love it. We had zone training this last week and it went well. We talked about working with members, and how to have a spiritual baptismal service. I was grateful to give instruction on that because I had to learn a lot about how to have a more spiritual baptismal service. The last one we had was so bad haha.

Nucy (recent convert) and Sarah her sister
We also got to watch the First Presidency's Christmas Devotional. It was so good. This is such a great time of year. Getting to celebrate the Lord's life while a missionary is special. We went on an exchange with the assistants this week and it went well. I learned a lot from it. It was a lot of fun.

We have been super busy making sure that two of our investigators are going to be ready for their baptisms this coming Sunday, Christmas! Merry Christmas to you, your present is the gateway to heaven! haha i am excited.

Our bishop gave one of our recent converts an assignment to give a talk on Sunday, and it made me so happy to see her give her talk. We are also planning on going to the temple with the ward this week and she should be coming to do baptisms, which will be so awesome.

On Sunday I ate some Indo mi and it kind of messed with my stomach. Then we went to our Branch President's house and ate a ton of fufu, and it didn't end well.. our investigator watched as the fufu she prepared for me ended in the bushes.. All is well now tho.

Today we went to the University in Winneba and had a zone activity. We played football against the Kasoa zone, and we won! haha it was epic. They had a field that actually had grass on it, so everyone had a good time.

Life is sweet here in Ghana. Cant wait for Christmas to see you!

Have a good week! The gospel is true.
