December 11, 2012

Hey everybody!

Another week has come and gone and now it's just two weeks until Christmas!  I'm so excited to talk to all of you guys.  So this week was actually pretty crazy because it was the presidential elections here so everybody was gone or only thinking about the election.  Ghanaians are funny because they just like to party and dance on any occasion and the elections gives them that reason to party.  I'm pretty sure that about 75% of the people that voted didn't even know what that candidate was going to do for them.  When they vote, because they don't do it electronically they have to just count them by hand which leaves lots of room for corruption and error and it also takes a lot of time.  They voted on Friday the seventh and didn't get the results until Sunday late in the evening.  Then people were all running around outside dancing, kissing the ground, and just going crazy.  Luckily Ghana is very peaceful so they don't have problems when it comes to elections. I didn't feel threatened in any way and that was cool.  We have a few more people here in Praso that we are hoping to have baptized by the end of the month but it will all depend on how this week goes.  I don't have too much time, as usual, I'm freaking busy. Haha.  Thanks for all you guys do and have a great week! I'll talk to you all next week!
