Hello everyone! How are you all? I hope that life is wonderful. It has been pretty good here recently although it was to send off Elder McKeon to Praso and then be put in another threesome again. But I have been blessed by members helping us so I have been able to be in my area all day for three of the five days so far. It is weird working with a companion or with someone that does not know the area and is not learning it, but is just helping you for a little bit. It is sweet though. Sarah, who Elder McKeon and I have been teaching for the last few months was baptized. It was sweet. She is 17 and has a sister who is in the church. She was supposed to be baptized last week but the pipe didn't flow, but everything went well yesterday! I am very excited for her.
But I have worked one day with Elder Shinasi and Elder Odongo each and then I worked with a member, Peter, one of the days. The have been good and productive. It is sweet to see the willingness to help out the work. Peter has only been a member of the church for a year, yet he has a strong testimony and is willing to do all that he can to help. It has shown me that no matter how much we do have the desires, we should be willing to do anything to follow the Lord and to help Him in his work.Today we went to Shama and there is an island just a small ways off of Shama that we went to for a combined Zone acitivity. We went to the beach there and played rugby. That was a lot of fun but I now remember how tiring it is to run in the sand. Or maybe I am out of shape... or both. But it was lots of fun. It is interesting that the island speaks Ewe even though the Ewes are found in Volta Region and now one around speaks it, but it was sweet. It was cool to see how self reliant the community is. But man, am I sunburned.
