Well this has been another one of the craziest weeks ever. We have been on the move this week and we have basically toured the whole upper half of Ghana... haha.Tuesday, , and we had our last 3 Zone Conferences with the Asouyeboa and Obuasi Zones, then Techiman and Sunyani, and finally Tamale, and those went really well! For the Conferences we have been instructing on how important it is for us while we teach our investigators to really listen to them, and be able to ask questions that are inspired by the Spirit so that we are able to help them to find the answers to their own questions for themselves instead of us just telling them all the answers we think are good and just leaving. But the Conferences really went pretty well! We were able to have every missionary also have time to practice it during the conference and then evaluate how it all went. Hopefully all the missionaries take it and apply what they learned, that is the biggest fear that I have at this point is that what we teach and learn with all the missionaries, i just fear that it wont be applied and it will be forgotten. But that is what we hope for is that all the missionaries will go back and apply it and be able to be more effective as they teach.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
Many of you back home in Utah or in the US at all, you may not have had many times where people who were not of our faith really persecute you for your belief, but here, so many people are persecuted and hated for being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. For us missionaries we have daily occurrences of people persecuting us, mocking us, you name it. My thought is that we should be glad to stand for what is the truth. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true Church and I know that I will be blessed for standing up for that amazing truth. I know that people will ridicule us, they will fight against us, but we will come out of this fight on top.
I love you all and i hope you have a great week!!
