The Gift of American Football!

Dear Mom, 
So it was a pretty fun week! We had a big end of the year party at Jude's school, he is a recent convert and Head master at the school.  I taught the kids how to play football (though they play it more like ultimate frisbee) and we ate rice and chicken. It was a blast! 
Stake Conference was yesterday, We had investigators and recent convert come.  Jude and his two friends and fellow teachers Joel and Bright received the Melchizedek Priesthood, so that afternoon we taught them how to administer.  It was really cool!

All in all a fantastic week!

Elder Seanshine Keddington

What a great experience!  He absolute loved it.  I'm so happy he loves the people of Ghana like he does!  We may need to go drag him out of there in August!

A Trip To The Temple

Temple trip with the new members

Dear Mom, 

Sorry! Connection went super screwy, so we moved the the church where the internet connection is better. Well, we had a great week. Our Relief Society President was in the hospital all week.  We were there quite a bit this week visiting her.  She is doing better now. We are still trying to get people to commit to Sacrament meeting, so we will keep trying. Elder Burt and I are doing well. We are chugging along. We reached 4 months left on Saturday. It's insane! 

All is well on this side, we have an exchange with the ZLs tomorrow, as well as interviews with President.  Then on Wednesday, we are having zone training. Its going to be a busy week!

I love you all so much!

Here comes the rainy season!

Oh, how I miss him!
Dear Mom, 
Another transfer come and gone. It went by, like dust to dawn. Haha! But anyway, we got the news that Elder Burt and I are staying together another transfer. We are super excited. No investigators yesterday at church.  We are trying to emphasize the feeling of the Holy Ghost. Hopefully, we will convince them to come. We will continue to work hard! 
We are definitely in the rainy season now. It rained from 3:00 yesterday to 12:00 midnight. Also it was lights-off (or Doomso, the twi word for blackout) So it was a crazy night. 
Another transfer - here we go! 3 more! I love you guys!


Elder Seanshine Keddington

Four months to go!  He's doing so great!  He got his nativity set and has commissioned an ebony carving of the Ghana Temple.  They are priced so incredibly well and will be absolute treasures in the years to come.  I can't wait to see them in person!

Two Weeks of Work

I keep waiting for this boy to send pictures!  That's why we have two weeks in one post.  The pictures never came.  You can bet that Connor is getting the "send pictures with every email" lecture quite often! Haha!  

Dear Mom, 
What a crazy week! We started off traveling back to Kasoa on Tuesday to a multi-zone conference. It was very nice.  Next, we had an exchange on Thursday with another missionary in the district. Then on Saturday we had our temple trip. Getting there and getting back was miserable, but the misery was overshadowed by the reactions of our recent converts. A lot of them brought family names, so they were able to do their family history work. It was incredible.

So excited to play Archery Tag when I get home. It looks like so much fun!

Elder Burt will send Pics. I love you guys!

Elder Keddington

Seriously - a man of very few words.  As I mentioned, those pictures never came.  I miss my boy!

And this is what we heard from him today:

Dear Mom, 
We had another awesome week!  We got to watch conference yesterday.  It was amazing. We watched Saturday Afternoon, Priesthood, and Sunday Morning sessions live.  I saw Julee and Charles! I saw Julee a bunch of times, I only saw Charles a couple of times. It was a very nice Sunday. Bless the Prophet! 
We went on an exchange with Elder Wiscombe, who is Burt and my TC. We were a threesome for a day. It was a ton of fun.  We are teaching a couple of really interested investigators right now named Emmanuel, and Jacob. We are excited for them.

I love you guys so much! Is it April already? We are having transfer news this Saturday so we will see what happens

Elder Seanshine Keddington
And there you have it.  Two weeks of work in the great Ghana Accra West Mission!  August is coming and we are getting excited to see and kiss that face! (if I can remember what it looks like!) Ha!!
