This week has been pretty fun. This greenie Elder Japhet is really something ha. He has been waking up every morning at 4;30! I don't know why, but he is pretty loud and always turns on the light right outside my room so it's right in my eye. Ha I guess he just really wants to get the day going fast fast. Tonight i am going to put some duct tape on the light switch and write do not turn on until 6:30! Ha 6:30 is early enough, I can't be waking up at 4:30 every day or i will not make it ha. I have had the opportunity to go and teach with him a little this week since Elder Yapo wasn't feeling too well. This guy has so much energy! He just wants to walk and walk and walk some more ha it's sweet to see that energy. Sometimes i would get worn out so I would have to say slow down big guy ha. I have been introducing him to what it's like to walk with an "obroni" (white man) ha it was shock to him at first when i got attacked by twenty little kids. He got used to it though and thinks its pretty fun, which it is. I love the little kids!

Every night this week there has been huge thunder and lightning (kacey, the thunder LOOKS so cool! haha love ya sis) but really i could watch that all night, the lightning is more powerful than i have ever seen.
Another thing i have been doing is trying to learn the Twi language. In my studies i have been trying to read the book of mormon in Twi. It's not easy but i can see it helping me small small. It's been quite a frustrating but fun thing to do. I hear that is how everyone else learns their languages on mission so i thought i would give it a try. We'll see how it goes.

The work has been going great too. Elder Japhet really helped us this week with some of our progressing investigators. Charles will probably be baptized on the 2nd as well as John who has been preparing for a long time. We are still working really hard with Juliet, when i see her i just want so badly for her to overcome her challenges and do what she knows is the right thing.

Today for p-day we went to one of our members house and guess what i did??? I mowed the lawn!!! Yeah, ha i thought i wouldn't have to do that for two years, but that thought was spoiled today. It was actually really fun to do it again and of course i made it look like a baseball field. They do tend to let the lawn grow a little too much but we were able to get'r'done! After we had some amazing fufu with some light soup so right now my belly is very satisfied!! Gotta love Ghana! Have a great week everyone!
