Still has his eye on the ball!

From June 26th:

Dear Mom, 

We had another great week! We were finally able to confirm our baptism. He is very excited to be in the church and to be with the Saints. We are now expecting a baptism on the 15th of July, he is a young boy named Richmond. He is a very intelligent young man who is loving the gospel.

I just received an email from an elder who is coming to the mission. He said that he has been reading the blog and is really excited to come! It was so cool. He is from the Philippines!

Elder Cottle was ill on Friday and Saturday, but is feeling better now. This transfer has flown by!  We had our zone activity today! We went to the beach and played American football! We also got zone polo shirts.

We will continue to work hard! I love you guys so much!

Love Elder Seanshine Keddington

From July 3rd:

Dear Mom, 

We had another great week here in Asikuma. The work is moving along, we are extending Baptismal dates to a lot of our investigators. We will be having baptism on the 15th for a boy named Richmond. He is 9 years old and is progressing very well. We have a couple of Investigators, named Christine and Alberta, who have very strong testimonies of the gospel, but both of their parents do not want them to be baptized. We are praying that the Lord will soften their hearts. Besides that not much else to report. Emmanuel was ordained to the priesthood and the office of a Priest. It was a nice Sunday service.

Elder Cottle and I are very happy to be staying together. He is an amazing missionary, and is a very good friend. 
Have an awesome week! I love you guys so much!

Love Elder Seanshine Keddington

Love this boy so much, but those pants need to stay in Ghana!!  Haha!!

One big reason I'm glad I'm not there!
