January 2, 2012 {Email}

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! What a great year this is going to be. I'm so excited for all of the wonderful experiences i will have as my mission comes to an end. Still plenty of things to do like you said and plenty of people to help. I hope you had a great week!

This week was good for us too. We switched our church time to 9 in the morning which was awesome. We now are preparing 5 people for baptism on the 28th of January! It's been so sweet! One of them is Jenifers (recent convert) daughter, Ruth. She is 13 and was a very stubborn girl when we first met her, but since she came to church and has been taking the teachings she is really changing. Jenifer is so happy with her now and excited for her to be baptized. She says once she gets the Spirit she will never be stubborn again haha. We are also teaching two other young boys whose sister is a member, they are 16 and 9 years old. Then we have a man, Henry, that has taken a long time to progress. He has come to church a lot but just doesn't take the the time to have lessons. This week was a big one for him. Our bishop called him up to speak in sacrament meeting ha he went up there and said some words in Fante than finished. After that he was acting as if he was already a member so we took him around on Sunday with us to meet one of our blind members and then a new investigator. He really seemed to be ready to be baptized and he has wanted it for a while. This week we hope to give him a date for the 28th. The last is Patrick, the man out on the oil rig right now. He will be back next week and should be right back into preparing for his baptism. We are pretty busy right now with these people and it has been great. Our ward also set another goal for baptisms from January through April, it will be 10. It's a really good goal for this ward and will force them to be involved with the missionary work. They seem excited about it though!
Other than that not too much else happened. We didn't do much for New Years, but all of Cape Coast are going to big beach parties today ha. I wish you all a Happy New Year!
