New Town Week 4

Hey everyone,

Me and Pwee. He raps
this week was good! i wasn't feeling that well, so each night i was just struggling to make it to the end, but we had some huge blessings as well. I think i saw president Simpson more this week than i ever have in a single week and it was great. I feel like every time we are around him, something funny happens. For example, at church during Elders quorum, they talked about voodoo for like 20 minutes. Then they somehow related it to repentance and forgiving others... hmm. hahah i just looked at president and laughed. but we also get to learn something when he is around. He is a great man.

We had multi-zone conferences this week and also interviews with president. The zone conference was good. We continued talking about the power of the Holy Ghost in conversion. We talked about the importance of being worthy of the Spirit so we can teach with power and authority. 

On Saturday, we were just leaving our apartment to go to have our interview with president, and someone from the top floor told us that he wanted to talk to us. We contacted him and invited him to church, and he came! His name is Emile and he is from Liberia. After church, he came to me and asked me what he needed to do in order to be baptized... haha i was speechless, and just kind of starred at him, and then finally told him that we would help him. Talk about a tender mercy.

I am loving it here. This zone is great. We had a zone activity today at it was fun. We just played different sports at the chapel, and then we also bought a ton of pure water, and basically used them as water balloons and played dodge ball.. No one was seriously injured, but we all experienced a little pain ;) A poor sister from Nigeria got hit in the eye with my baseball.. she is okay tho. Nothing like the sign of a good time than a black eye right? Mission is great. Ghana is a great place. I feel so happy serving my Savior. If you put Him as the focus of your life, you can always find joy. 

Have a great week!
