Happy Mother's Day!

Hey, everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day yesterday! It was so good to talk to all of you yesterday. Sorry i couldn't Skype! Next time we talk will be face to face, so it is alright. 
This week went too fast. I am having a hard time remembering what all happened! It was a good week though! We struggled to be able to sit down with people though. Sometimes things just don't work out i guess. 

My chair broke in the middle of comp study
Sister Rosemond got confirmed yesterday! She said she felt really good. You could already tell a difference in her. Just looking at her you could tell that she was just happy. It reminded me of Matthew 6:22, where it talks about how if our eye is single, we will be filled with light. It made me so happy, and grateful to be a missionary. This work is true.

On Wednesday, they asked me to provide an activity for mid-week. So we watched "Meet the Mormons." Unfortunately the volume was pretty quiet, and by the end of the movie, half of the members were dead asleep.. The activity kind of bombed hahah 

We had a pretty interesting experience. It was good and bad at the same time. So on Thursday, we were walking to go to an appointment, and we felt like taking a random route to get there, and on the way there, we were walking through a giant Muslim community, and someone called us over to talk to them. So we kind of hesitantly went over to see who it was. When we saw him, he was just this guy watching a store and he told us how he used to be a Muslim, but that he met the missionaries in Cape Coast and they gave him a Restoration pamphlet and he converted to Christianity. So we set up an appointment to come on Saturday. When we got there on Saturday, we began the lesson and he bore such a powerful testimony about the Restored gospel. It was awesome. Not too long after that however, his mom came to where we were sitting, and asked us to leave... So we just had to get up and go without saying anything else. Hopefully we will be able to continue to meet with him though! Pray so that his mom's heart will be softened! I know we didn't meet him by accident. It was just another testimony to me that this is the Lord's work, and we just need to be worthy to work for him. 
This is the last week of the transfer, and i cant believe how fast it has gone! It is sad to think that i will go home soon. I will miss this so much. 

This gospel is true, and God is there. He loves us so much.

thank you for all your support! I have the best family and friends! 

Have a good week! 

Love Elder Eldredge
