December 21, 2010 {Email}

Well this has been a very interesting week. Wednesday we taught a few lessons and went to Sepaase to see Jennifer again. Everything is sweet there, she is progressing and now is ready to leave her church soon. I'm so excited for that day to come when she is ready to only come to our church. Her little sister comes to ours every week and as soon as Jennifer is baptized we will probably get her baptized soon after that. Then that night we went to institute and met with Frank! He is a new member referral that we have and this guy is sweet, he loves to learn this message and always keeps his promises. I have really high hopes for him. He has now been to church a couple times.

On Thursday we didn't have much success like before. All of our appointments have traveled for the Holidays because it is christmas! Which is fine, they should be with their families right now. So at about six i suddenly got hit with MALARIA! Yeah, that african illness everyone talks about. We were just walking around and suddenly i got the chills and stomach aches. Elder Harris knew right away that it was malaria since he has had it 4 times already ha. When we got back to the apartment the power was out and Elder Harris was saying something about how hot it is and then he looked at me and saw me cuddled up in my blanket just freezing ha. I had malaria all the way til sunday. That wasn't fun doing nothing during those two days. But hey i'm better now and i can say had Malaria in Africa and survived! :) ha

Yesterday we had our Christmas gathering in Sunyani. It was awesome to see everyone and i saw Elder Hair, my MT, for the first time since the MTC! That was way cool. The meeting was sweet! It felt like Christmas!

The Christmas spirit is definitely here in Ghana and it is pretty fun to experience. I'm excited to see how they celebrate on that day. We are going to do a few things for some families which will be so fun I can't wait.

Well I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Afiyhipa!!!! (That is merry christmas in Twi)

Love you all

Elder Rogers
