Sorry this is a day late. Yesterday we were in Kumasi so we were not able to email because it was just a busy day with travel and the activity. This last week was alright but some of our people that were going to be baptized this weekend probably won't be because they just won't come to church. That is always the hardest thing to get people to do is to come to church. Even if they are telling you that they know it is true and that they want to get baptized.
So last Tuesday was Ghana's Independence Day. We sang their national anthem and everything at district meeting. It was a lot of fun. That night we went and saw Bertha and her family. We were there talking
and they of course surprised us with food. It was rice and stew. It was so good, I really loved it. Bertha keeps saying that she knows the Book of Mormon is true and everything but she just doesn't come to
church when she says she will. We will just have to keep telling her how important it is I guess and then hope that she comes. Then on Wednesday we had a good lesson with Charity about the Book of Mormon
and then we also went and saw Joyce. When we were at Joyce's a huge rainstorm blew in just like last week when we were teaching her. Luckily we were able to finish the lesson. On Thursday we went to see
Bertha again and she fed us again! I think she plans on feeding us everytime that we go. She gave us fufu and it was really good. We helped them. Then we had institute at our chapel and it went good. On Friday night we went on splits with the zone leaders. I went to Nkwabeng for the night and Elder Belnap and stayed in Fiapre for the day with Elder McFarland. On Friday night there was a way sweet lightning and thunder storm. I woke up and the thunder was so loud that it shook the whole apartment. It was awesome. Then Saturday was good going around Nkwabeng. We rode bikes and it is extremely hilly so I was way tired at the end of the day. Sunday was good at church but none of our investigators at church. Then after church our whole district met at the bus station and we rode down to say in Kumasi for the night so we could go to the combined zone activity. We got down there and the Fiapre apartment stayed at the Bantama apartment where Elder Hernandez is the zone leader. It was a lot of fun to hang out there for the night. Then the next morning all of Kumasi and Sunyani squished into these two tros that should only hold 25 people each and we had about 70 people. Then we drove about 2 hours to a lake called Lake Bosomtwe. There was food and games and everything. It was a lot of fun. We were there until about 4:00 or so and then went back and Elder Zoll dropped us off at the Metro Mass station so we could get back to Kumasi. We didn't get back until about 9:00 so we didn't have time to do anything. We just went to the apartment and got ready for bed. It was a really long day but way fun. So there was my week! I love you guys and will talk to you next week!
Love Elder Kitchen
