Seek Learning by Faith

Hello everyone,
Things are going good for me this week. Things here in Nkawkaw are going good!! Just some more small information, my companion, Elder Bbosa is from Uganda and he is a way sweet guy, the two of us are getting along very well and I really love being with him! He is just about done with his mission, i believe he will be going home in October so i will probably be his last companion. Our area is tiny when you compare it to the other areas here in Nkawkaw, but gigantic comparing it to Agona... But the area is really doing good and we are enjoying teaching. Our area is really bushy too, the other day we were walking to a members through all the trees and grass and bush and the thought came to me 'this is just like a 'neature walk' ' haha this place is sweet though.

One awesome thing about this place is the branch, Nkawkaw 2nd Branch is amazing and yesterday we had about 60-70 people at sacrament which is by far the most for me in any branch on my mission. It was amazing. it was also the first time i have had at church where the missionaries didn't have to help with either the sacrament, or teaching lessons, all of it was done well by all the members. There are even quite a few returned missionaries in this branch and a few 2nd generation families which is amazing as well.

This week is going to be an amazing one for us as missionaries. For Elder Bbosa and I, we will have Mission Leadership Council this Thursday so we will go down Wednesday and stay the night, then come home Thursday evening, then Saturday morning we will be going down again to Kumasi for our meeting with Elder David A Bednar, which is going to be absolutely amazing!! I am so excited for that!! in preparation for the meeting, we are all supposed to read a few talks that Elder Bednar has given in the past and one of them, i would strongly encourage all of you to go and listen to or read. It is called "Seek Learning by Faith" it was on Feb 3, 2006 to CES instructors. if you can find it, read it, it is amazing.

Anyway that is about what happened this week for us, there wasn't a whole lot, but it was just a good week getting to know the area and the members. I love you all and hope things are going good for you!!
