Elder Porritt & Snow's Last Day Together

Well hello there everybody! I hope all is going well for everyone back home!! Everything here is going good! It is still hot... haha surprise surprise!

Although there is one surprise that's happening this week.  Elder Snow has been called to be a Zone Leader in Obuasi which is about an hour and a half south of Kumasi, and I will be staying here in Techiman. My new companion will be Elder Kumalo who is from South Africa. Elder Snow and Elder Madsen both tell me that Elder Kumalo is a sweet guy so that is pretty cool and I am excited! It will be different not being with Elder Snow but i think it will be good for me and good for the area just to have different people in there. That's one thing that I have noticed a lot, is that when different missionaries go into different areas, the area just seems to take off, so I guess we will see what happens here! I just have the rest of today and then tomorrow with Elder Snow and then he be gone. 

This week was a good week of teaching for sure. We don't know what's going on with Aw, he just seems like he is starting to be not very serious, but we do have three people who we are teaching that will be baptized in the next couple months. Two of them, Da and Gf, both have husbands who are active members and both are very powerful members who want to be sealed in the Temple, so teaching with them is certainly powerful. And then the third investigator, Gre, is a lady that stays with one of our members but its her cousin.  The member is probably the most powerful female member in our branch and she hasnt been a member for six months yet. She is seriously so awesome. But man teaching all three of these ladies has been so awesome because there is so much potential for them to be strong in the Church and to be sealed to their families so that is for sure awesome. We think that Gre will be baptized next Sunday the 7th or maybe on the 14th but she will probably be my first baptism!!

Another cool thing that happened this week was that we got bikes for our area! We were so excited to get them and we took them out the day we got them and holy crap there was about a trillion problems with them... We ended up having to get a new pair of brakes for one of the bikes and the pedal on my bike fell off like 5 times and nobody in town could fix it to where it wouldnt just fall back off 30 minutes later. Sooo the bikes are a work in progress for sure haha! Even though they are sweet to have to get to places faster!

Thats about all that happened this week!  I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Jesus Christ is our Savior. I hope all is going well for everyone back home! I love you all so much and I hope you have a great week!

Love Elder Porritt

Us and our bikes.... and the helmets that the mission gave us.... gotta love that
