July 30, 2012

Hey everybody!  
It was just another great week here in Swedru, Ghana and I'm lovin' it!  I wouldn't want to be anywhere else right now! :)  This week we went on splits with both the AP's and the Zone leaders and it was great.  I think on Thursday we went up to a small village a little bit away from Swedru where our 2nd counselor lives.   The 1st counselor drove us up in his car and we taught a few different people..  It was nice teaching up in a quite and calm place far away from all of the noise of Swedru.  It's been a while since I've been able to teach in an environment like that.  The people that we met up there were all really nice and hopefully will progress.  Daniel came to church again this week and gave a lot of really good contributions.  It was great to see him like that.  I can't wait to see him progress in the gospel.  Hopefully we can start teaching his wife soon so that she can be coming to church with him. So today we went to Cape and had an activity.  It was cool because I was able to see a lot of the missionaries that I haven't seen in a while.  One Elder came up to me and asked me if I remembered teaching a guy named Opoku Daniel.  I'm sure you guys don't remember but he was a guy that I started teaching with Elder Hernandez and he was really smart but he just didn't have time.  Then he told me that Daniel had moved down to his area and has been coming to church and is going to be getting baptized this next week.  It was really cool because it helped me realized that my job as a missionary won't always be to just baptize people but to introduce them to the gospel and maybe sometime later in their life they will accept it and live it in their life.  This was one that didn't take too long but it makes me feel better about all of the people that I've taught that haven't been baptized that there will be more chances if the Lord has truely prepared that person to recieve the gospel.  So that was my cool story for the week. Everything is going well here and I'm happy!  Have a great week everybody!
