May 23, 2011 {Email}

This week has been great! We keep on having sweet experiences each and every day! Well almost each and every day... this week i was on the disabled list for a couple days with the sickness known as Malaria. It wasn't too bad this time but i just had no energy to go out and be in the sun. I would become wasted very quickly. To be safe and to get better quicker we took the days off which worked out great because the weekend was very busy for us! To help us out with the busyness we finally were given BIKES! Brand new bikes came to our apartment from the mission. We were so excited because we could now get to our area so much faster. We weren't expecting the pain that would come to our buttocks but i guess that all comes with the blessing of a bike. Anyways it has helped a lot and allowed us to see a lot more people each day.

Sundays are always my favorite days of the week! It's on these days that we get to see our investigators diligently search the church. I don't know why but the investigators in Asuoyeboa come very often, it is so sweet! This week we had lost touch with our baptismal candidate Kwesi, who should be baptized on the 29th. We didn't see him or hear from him all week and we were very worried about him. On Sunday, sure enough he walks right in the church with his young daughter, sits down and starts teaching her how to sing the hymns. We were so excited to see him again! We will be having a baptism on this Sunday and he will be a part of it. I love the work here in Asuoyeboa, the ward helps so much! It reminds me of the members back home how they welcome new people to the church.

Today for P-day we went to the ZOO! Our zone went as an activity and we were all way excited and curious to what we would find. It turned out to be pretty sweet even though the living conditions aren't the best for the animals. It's nothing like our good ol' american zoos. They had lions, monkeys, snakes, crocodiles and a lot of other cool animals. No elephant, rhino or hippo so i was very sad. It's ok it was fun! I have been having a great time here! Love you all!
