Hey everyone!!  This week has been sweet!  Lots of hard work and lots of fun.  There has been this member family, the Abu family, who we have been working with a lot and one of the daughters was pregnant.  Well this last Wednesday night she gave birth!  That was sweet!  It was funny to see thought as the tensions at that household were very high on Wednesday evening, but everyone was so happy on Thursday.  They don't stay at the hospital very long here as they were only there for about probably 10 hours... but it was sweet!  They haven't named it yet as it is tradition not to name the baby until it is at least a week old, but its Twi name, as they name according to the day born is Maame Ekua.  It was cool to see.  Another sweet thing that happened on Wednesday was that we had our Ward Council in the presence of an area seventy, Elder Davies.  That was cool although our ward does seem to have some issues.  It was sweet though and it was very good to receive some instruction from him on how to help the ward function better.  Then on Friday was my companion's birthday!  We had fun... we had agreed with this one man to go and help him at his farm but things ended up falling through.  We still had a good time.  It was a long good day as we didn't get back until 9:30 and ECG took power even though it should have been on.  They have a schedule here where they have power for 24 hours and then they take it away for 12 hours but recently it has been more like 24 hours off and 12 hours on... oh well.  It is good though.  So instead of making him brownies of on Friday we ended up making them Saturday night which worked out. Sunday was a sweet day as well.  We had one investigator who came to church, a Brother Kojo.  He is such a sweet man and has a strong desire to join the church.  The only problem is that he is staying with a woman who is very opposed to the church but he is solid.  We have a few other people who are doing very well and I am excited for the upcoming months.  One thing that I enjoyed was the sacrament again this week.  I have seen how as you take more time to think about it that it will help you feel the spirit more.  One thing that stood out to me was in the hymn we sung, number 191, it says "A broken law to satisfy." We have broken the laws of God, but Jesus Christ has satisfied those laws and the demands of justice.  We are saved through him.
Well... I love you all and I hope that you all have an amazing week!  Take care!!!!
