October 17, 2011 {Email}

This week was just as great as the last one. We have a lot of people that we are teaching in our area that are progressing very well. The funny thing is a few of the most serious ones don't live in our area. Since we proselyte in town we meet a lot of people that work here but live somewhere else. We keep teaching them because they are here all day and are rarely at home, but we invite them to attend the church where their house is. It's been fun to be a help to other wards and branches. As for our family we are teaching, we didn't get to have a visit with the entire family since Justice travelled to Accra. What was sweet was the two younger boys came to church on their own will! They are so powerful. In church they sat their extremely reverent during all three hours. I've never seen such smart, polite and well behaved young boys. Now we just need the parents to join them and i'll be the happiest man in the world. Sweet family!

We also went on splits this week with the Abakrampa Elders. I stayed in Abakrampa with Elder Awatey. The place is a VILLAGE!!! Ha it was so much fun, but kind of hard for missionaries that can't speak the Twi. They always have to call a ghanaian to serve there because of it. So the whole day i didn't really understand much of what anyone was saying. The place was awesome though!

Today for P-day we got our sight seeing done! First we went to the Kakum National Park to walk on the ropes up in the trees! It was sooooo scary! And it didn't help that all the other guys knew i was nervous so they would shake it as we walked across haha those jerks. It sucks being afraid of heights, but it was way fun and felt great when i finished the last one. I never thought i would be able to do something as cool as that. We were like 40 meters above the ground walking next to the top of the trees.

Then we went to Hans Cottage! This place is where they have a lot of crocodiles that are somehow tamed so we can walk right out to them. That was intense being so close to a vicious animal and not being attacked ha i kept waiting for it to just snap me in half. It was a way fun p-day!

Everything is going great here in the mission. On Friday we are having a member of the first quorom of the seventy, Elder Gavarett, come visit us. I'm way excited for that!
