January 21, 2013

Hey everybody!

I've been having the hardest time lately finding things to say in my emails.  This week was just another normal week.  Proselyting in the Praso branch where we are is going kind of slow since the split and it's been hard to find people to teach, but when we went out to the village called Nuamakrom where they have a ward, there were a lot of referrals waiting for us that have been coming to church for quite a while.  Nuamakrom is a great place because it's a quiet and humble place.  It's about a quarter of the way to Assin Foso on a really dusty road and bumpy road.  The taxis that go there have so much dust but when you finally get there it's worth it because the people are so great.  Because it's in the middle of nowhere, most of the people don't speak english and their main source of income is farming.  The usually farm things like cocoa, plantains, and cassava.  We have about 13 solid people that we are teaching out there and two of them are husband and wife with some kids.  The ward mission leader is a great help to us because he takes us around and translates the lessons if the people don't speak english.  On Sunday we went there for church and taught some of the people after.  We were able to set a few baptismal dates for next month and so as long as they keep progressing and we are able to meet with them then they will be baptized.  Today we came down to Cape Coast and for our activity we were able to watch the Best Two Years.  That show is a lot more fun to watch as a missionary.  I was able to relate to a lot of things that they were saying and doing and it was really funny.  Nothing too much is happening this coming week but it still should be a really good weeks.  Well, thanks for the emails and everything you guys do for me. Have a wonderful week!
