|Transfer Day with Elder Reeves|
We had another fantastic week! My area is a bit like Kwabeng, as in it is right on the edge of the jungle. It's a really pretty village. We had an awesome week of teaching. Our baptism was awesome! Our candidate's name is Dominic and he was received into the branch with open arms. Also, one of the recent converts in the branch was ordained a priest and given the priesthood. And to top it off, I taught the Gospel Essentials class. I taught about the temple and baptisms for the dead. They asked some pretty tough questions, but with the help of the Spirit, I felt I answered them OK. All in all, it was a great week, teaching wise. I did a rough estimated, and since I got here, my companion and I have walked a total of 40 miles! I come home tired, but satisfied each night.
Thank you to everyone for the birthday money. I really appreciate all the support you guys give me. I couldn't do it without you guys. I love you all and pray for you everyday.
Wow - this kid sounds like a missionary! The tourist is gone. I can't believe my baby boy will be 20 this week! How did that happen. He told me in our FB chat that in some ways, he feels like he's turning 30 instead of 20. 14 months in another country will probably do that to you, especially when you were without running water for the last 4 months. He sounds so great and is loving the people and the place. I can't wait until he can get to Accra and get a new camera. I'm dying for some pictures! Love this guy and all he is doing.
