September 26, 2011 {Email}

This week was great! The work is really coming along here in our area. We had two members that gave us referrals so that was a good start. I think as we keep encouraging it the members will see and follow the examples of the members who are trying. I hope so. Ghana is the perfect place for members to share the gospel. Everyone lives together in family compounds and they all know each other. It's like a big campground. As you walk around, all the neighbors will be outside cooking and pounding fufu. At any time they can share it and also for us it's a great place to just mingle with the people and offer them chances to meet with us and come to church.

We actually have gotten a couple more serious investigators! We met a girl at a less active boys house as we were trying to get him excited about church. She was kind of listening as we talked and then we asked her if she liked what she was hearing and she said yes so we set up a time to come back and meet with them both again. The next lesson was about baptism and how there can only be one true church. She really enjoyed and was interested in why we say these things. We gave her the only pamphlet that we had left which was the Gospel of Jesus Christ (we usually give the Restoration the first time). The next time we came back she had read the whole thing and recited what she learned about as good as i have ever seen anyone do it. She was powerful. The next time we met she had read the entire Restoration! We haven't discussed all the way through yet but she loved it. The cool thing about her is she is like 19 years old and looks a little like a punky girl ha. But she is very cool and ready to listen to the gospel! Her name is Auntie Esi by the way. We are hoping she comes to church this week. Also Selena continues to come to church!!!

We had a tight p-day today. All of the Assin Fosu zone came down to play basketball and American football on the beach. It was so much fun and i gotta be around Elder Holmes and Elder Jaggi again so that was sweet to catch up on things with them. I don't think i'm ever going to be normal about being right next to the ocean all the time. Today i just kept looking out there as we were talking, just thinking how amazing this world is. The ocean is so awesome!

OH! Another thing! This week we made Gorilla Poop cookies!!! (No Bake Cookies) Oh my gosh they were so stinking good! I can't imagine being at home and having them all the time! I'm so jealous of all of you that you just have them in stock by the fridge all the time! "LUCKY!" (Napolean Dynamites voice) ;) ha have a great week everyone!!
