Merry Christmas

Hey fam! 

This week was a lot of fun! We were so busy all week and i am so tired right now, but it was still great.

We had a lot going on with Christmas and everything. On Tuesday we had a multi-zone conference in Kasoa. They did a cool devotional on Christmas and it was sweet. After that, we WATCHED A MOVIE. Haha before you think i am apostate, the movie was planned by our mission president. We watched Despicable Me 2. I don't know if it is just Ghana speaking, but i loved it haha. On Thursday we went to the temple. It was so hectic getting there, but it was really cool, because one of our recent converts went to do baptisms. At first she was really nervous because she was afraid of the water or something like that, but after she said she didn't want to get out she felt so good. I think that was the first time i have been there with a recent convert to go to the temple so i was super happy.

Getting home from the temple was a lot harder than getting there lol. Our ward paid a guy and his tro tro to take us there and back, and he was supposed to pick us up at the temple at 3 to take us home, but 3 rolled around and nothing.. Our bishop eventually just had to go and find a different tro tro to take us back. We didn't leave the temple until about 6 and the whole way home there was traffic and it was so packed and hot. There was a baby who was just suffering from the heat and trying to sleep, so while her dad held her i was fanning her down with a Restoration pamphlet trying to cool her down. We got home right at 9:30 and i was dead haha Sunday, we had a baptism! We baptized sister Augustina and Seth. It was super special because i contacted sister Augustina my first day here in Swedru, and she finally was able to get baptized. I was so happy.
This work is wonderful. I love it so much. I am so grateful to be here, and to learn from so many great people. Life is always better when we choose to follow God's plan.

Skyping was great. i was happy that we finally got a good connection.

Glad to see that you are all happy and had a good holiday. Love you all, have a great week Elder Ben Eldredge
