I will definitely never forget this experience and always treasure it!
sweetest picture ever!
Well this week was yet again another awesome one for Elder
Iyamu and I! We had two experiences that I will never forget! It may not seem
that cool but if you were in my shoes and saw everything that I do, it would be
amazing to you!
1) We have been teaching an investigator right next to one
of our recent converts, Jones. The lady we have been teaching was still in the
middle of whether or not she needed to be baptized and leave Assemblies of God.
It wasn’t until the end of the lesson on Tuesday when our recent convert opened
up and bore his testimony to this lady. He didn’t say a whole lot, but said
enough by telling her the church is true, and the Lord will bless her with this
knowledge AFTER she takes that step of faith through baptism. He was also told
her that people would fear her physically and spiritually haha I love jones! It
was such a powerful experience for me and really strengthens my testimony from
a convert who has been a member for 3 weeks! The investigator committed to
baptism and we will continue to work with her and progress for that day. Jones
is such a stud.
2) The next
experience that we were able to have is on Saturday night the Bishop, 2nd
counselor, Relief Society president and us missionaries went around Tema New
Town visiting Less Active/Recent Converts. When we had finished visiting the
first one she decided that she would come along, and so did the next one and
then the following one. This continued all the way to the end of the night
where we had around 15 members with us visiting and showing the love they have
for the members in the great area of New Town! It was so awesome to see the
members faces that hadn’t come to church for a while, because of transfer fair,
light up (I’m not sure what these 2 events
are…light up has to do with electricity I think) and have a huge smile on
their faces! I will definitely never forget this experience and always treasure
it! It was awesome to witness 15 members walking through New Town looking for the
members! It was amazing!!We finally
found a building to work for a meeting house, but it will take a month to
renovate it and get it up to church standard. The church in New Town will be a
huge blessing for the members here! Definetely a great week for Elder Iyamu and
Dang I forgot that dad can choose his companion speakers as
a high council.....maybe I won't come home anymore haha jokes. (Kraymer spoke with Todd yesterday)Yes it
was my idea to rearrange the furniture and I will try and send a photo. Its not
the best photo but should manage. (I told
him if it was his idea to rearrange the furniture it was Grandma Edler coming
outin him) And yes I’ll be very sad
to see president Judd go home in July. The new president will be President Heid
from California. He has been in Ghana a lot before so I think he will do great!
The food here is all the same no matter what area I am in and I wear my Keens
everyday. I still have this stupid plantar wart! Haha it is almost gone, but
I’ve had it treated with straight acid from the doctors here and its still
being stubborn. But don’t worry, I’ll make sure it is off before I get home haha.
Well family I love you all and I’m grateful for you support! Have a great week!
