So alsowe went on exchanges. Elder Gyansah came to be with me in our area. That was a lot of fun. He is a great elder and a powerful teacher. He is from Accra so he can speak the Twi and that was so nice to be able to meet the people and use it in the teaching. I really wish that I could speak the Twi fluently enough to teach and get my point across. Sadly I can only manage to understand what people are saying most of the time. But we did get this wonderful fufu from our Bishop's family as we were on the exchange. It was really good. You know, this last transfer or so I have only been eating Ghanaian foods as I want to eat it as much as I can while I have the chance. Fufu is a very heavy food and it can get you fat if you eat it too much. But sadly... I have eaten it that last six days... and not small portions as well and I am still loosing weight! Oh well... I guess I will come home very skinny then. But boy do I love a good fufu... it has been rather enjoyable.
Elder Ripplinger and I are enjoying it up here. One of our recent converts, Ernest, is in the hospital this week because of Malaria. Sad to see him ill like that. One member, Joyce has been helping us teach a ton. Almost every day she has been helping us teach. It is always greatly appreciated to have people who are willing to help with the work.
Well... I love you all and I hope that you have all enjoyed this email! Love you guys!!!!!
We had an adventure tyring to put up a poly tank. We haven't had running water in like 4 weeks so they put in a stand to help with things but when we lifted it we realized it was too big for the stand and that thing is very heavy. We had some welders come and fix the stand and now it is up.... not easy
