Changes on the horizon

Dear Mom, 
Elder Maloba goes home Monday.  He is super excited. I've loved Maloba, but I am somewhat looking forward to doing a little more serious work.  With transfers coming up one of two things will happen. 
1. I will get a new companion in my area like normal
2. They will shut down my area and move me.  There are two areas of Winneba, Winneba 1 and Winneba 2. We are in Winneba 2. If they shut this area down, the Winneba 1 missionaries will take it over.
Personally, I want to stay here, but we will see what happens. As for the work, we have about 2-3 serious investigators. 
You asked about how we keep ourselves cool.  So, to cool ourselves we have rechargeable fans, but lately because it's so cool, we don't use them.  Cool means lows in the lower 70's and highs in the upper 70's -low 80's. 

So you think I should consider BYU - Idaho? Maybe.  A lot of guys from the mission are going there. I'll add that to my pool of possibilities.
 I Love you guys so very much. I'll send some pictures of something for your birthday.  I just wish I could give them to you in person!

I love you guys so very much!

Love Elder Seanshine Keddington

A very Sean tie!

I could NEVER get him to eat stuff like this at home!  Yay for missions!

Tools of the trade

Working out!  (pretty sure he doesn't usually wear a white shirt to work out)

That's one small stove!

Those eyes!!

My awesome missionary - who needs to shave!
Hi Mom!

I uploaded my album!  This week was really nice. We taught more than we usually do. Next transfer will be a lot busier because right now my companion just wants to wind down, which is fine.  This is his last transfer. I am doing good. The work is going well.  We are starting the lessons with a couple of people, so we are excited to have some new potential investigators.

Like I said, I uploaded a lot of pics to Facebook. They are just of my area, me, and my companion. I hope you like them. (I am putting them on their own blog post)  
How goes the college search? I am still thinking about my career. I will let you know what I think of, but I'm leaning towards Sports Medicine.  I also want to spend some time working with Christian in Texas.  It sounds like it's been a good experience for him!

I've heard about Pokemon Go even out here.  I am super excited for it when I get home. That's just small though!

I love you guys a ton! I pray for you each day!

Love, Elder Seanshine Keddington

A little over 10 months out!

Winneba District
Hi Mom! 
This week was pretty sweet.  We didn't teach a lot this week.  The Muslim community broke their month long fast, so everyone has been partying.  It's made it hard to get people to teach, but we are trying our hardest each day.  We are doing good.  I've gotten down to an even 230lbs, so I am getting healthier each day. 
It looks like you guys had a blast in Nauvoo and South Dakota. I have to admit, I wish I was there with you guys. Oh well, just a little over a year before I'm home. But who's counting? Haha!
We are working with a lot of less actives in this area.  It's made me realize that faith is the root of everything we believe in.  Faith will move mountains, but you have to actually work with it.

I Love you guys so much.  I'm glad you guys had so much fun together.

I love you Forever!

Elder Seanshine Keddington

Still a man of few words.  Sounds like things are going well, though.  We pray for him everyday and know that the Lord is keeping him safe and happy.  Love that boy!
