Hello there Familia!!
First things first. Did any of you watch Elder Scott's funeral service?? If not, go watch it right now because it was amazing and it featured the greatest opening prayer I have ever laid my ears upon. (if that doesnt give away who gave the opening prayer then you will understand when you find out who gave it haha)
How are things going back home?? I have enjoyed everybody's emails and getting to read about everything back home really kinda stinks because it makes me miss home a lot. But to tell you the truth I dont think I could make it through the week without hearing from you so just keep that in mind that you are keeping me alive ha ha ;)
All is well here at the MTC!!
This week has been pretty solid besides the fact that I am still here at the MTC. All of us American elders are so ready to get out into the field!! The food here at the MTC definitely isnt my favorite but it is decent most days. We had fufu for lunch on Friday and it was interesting to say the least. I sent mom a picture of it so if you saw that then you will see it is basically a big ball of dough. It is about the size of a pancake but like four pancakes stacked on top of each other!! And so you take your index and middle fingers and get a chunk of it on those fingers and roll it into a ball and dip it into the soup that they serve with it and then swallow it whole. No chewing. It is impossible to eat. It is like swallowing a pill that is the size of a submarine and I hardly ate any of it because I was scared I was gonna not be able to swallow and then throw it all up. It doesnt taste too bad though once it has been dipped in the soup. The fufu alone is disgusting though.
Another cool experience that happened this week was Sunday night. We sat down and watched The Testaments and H O L Y C O W. That has a new meaning to me if I do say so myself. The Spirit was like a cloud of smoke it was so strong here. Seeing that and just thinking to myself about how our Savior died for us, rose again, and LIVES is so amazing. We are truly so blessed to have the Savior. Without Him, we would be here for nothing. His sacrifice for us is the greatest thing that has ever happened on this Earth and I know that He lives. He loves each and every one of us and wants us all to be happy. His Gospel was restored to this Earth through Joseph Smith and I know the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. We are so so so so blessed to be a part of this Gospel and I am so blessed to be serving my Savior and my Heavenly Father. I love them and I love you all!! I hope this next week is a good one!! I am off to Kumasi!!! You are in my prayers!!
Lots of Love (LOL)
Fufu. not too shabby
