January 24, 2011 {Email}

Well first things first! Today was transfer day and there have been ALOT of changes in our zone! Transfers are so stressful, this time we were in the zone leaders apartment listening to the phone call! So crazy! I just kept waiting to hear mine or Elder Harris' name. There was 6 people who left and Elder Harris is one of them! I'm really depressed, it's sad to say goodbye! He is a sweet companion and it definitely will not be the same. He is going down to Sekondi to be with one of his MT's. He is way stoked and i'm happy for him he will love it down there. Well since he is gone that means i now have a new companion! His name is Elder Yapo and he is from Ivory Coast! All i have heard about him is that he is way cool and only has 3 months left on mission so I will probably end up "killing" him. Crazy stuff! My mind is all over the place. I don't even know what to think right now! It will be me, a Nigerian, a Liberian, and an Ivorian in our apartment! I've got a lot of adapting to do! It'll be fun though i'm way excited to show Elder Yapo around Abuakwa, which could be split up soon! This week we went out to Nkawie with Prosper (the mission maintenance guy) to find a new place to put a branch. We will have a new apartment for two elders in Abuakwa and then two will go to Nkawie to start up a new group! Everything is changing and i can't keep up with it all! Transfers are crazy! I just realized I have used a lot of exclamation points ha sorry i'm just freaking out right now.

As for the work, Emanuel is set to be baptized on the 5th or 6th of February. That is going to be the coolest baptism. It's too bad Elder Harris won't be here for it. We ended up dropping Jennifer this week which was very depressing. She just doesn't really have the desire anymore. She says she knows it's true but she still won't leave her church. There is nothing more we can do for her, it is all up to her now. Hopefully she will realize the importance of it someday.

Well this week has been great! I'm sad to say goodbye to Elder Harris but i'm excited to meet Elder Yapo and start working with him.

Hope all is well back home! Love you all!

Elder Rogers
