Out for 4 months!

Hello Everyone!!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful week!! I still can't believe it is 2016 and i have been in Ghana for almost 4 months!! Time really is flying!!

This week was another struggle for teaching but man the lessons we actually were able to teach were soooo awesome and the spirit was so thick and strong there.  We still haven't heard anything from D and J, the two high school kids who were about to get baptized, but we think they will be returning and coming back asap because school started back up today for them so they have to be here i guess.

The last two weeks we have been teaching a man whose name is Am.  He is so powerful and has truly been prepared to hear the Gospel.  He graduated high school a year or two ago and has been just doing nothing since then and he heard of the church and showed up at our apartment/the chapel one night and wanted to know what we were all about and so we have been teaching him quite a bit and he is so awesome and really understands everything so well.  He asks us all the time about when he can be baptized and he is so excited to have found the only true church on the earth. He also shares the Gospel with his friends like every day and i think he is going to be excited when we tell him that he can serve a mission because he always wants other people to know what he found to be true!! he is an awesome investigator and soon, he is going to be an awesome member of the Church.

So that's how our teaching has been the last week, but man its getting more humid here every day which is nice cause the dry weather has been killing us but man with the humidity rising, it just feels that much hotter every day and I don't know which one i like worse, the dry or the wet heat.. They both are not easy here haha.

Thats about all for this week.  I hope everyone is doing well back home and i hope you all know that i love you and pray for you all daily! I know there is nothing i would rather be doing than serving my Heavenly Father right now. It is the best feeling in the world to know that i can bring the truth to those who dont have it yet. I know that the Church is true and I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet on the Earth today and if we follow his guidance, we cannot be led astray!!  I love you all so much!! Have a wonderful week!!
