Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20

Hi Everyone,
          I am doing fine. Sometimes its tough but I know what awaits me. But yeah, I wake up at six; do personal study, have a shower, eat breakfast, go to classes from like 8-12 with a bunch of breaks, and then go to lunch.  We then we go back to class till like three or so and then we get to have like a physical activity type of a deal. Then we eat at five. Then we go back to more classes till like nine, and then snack and then shower again cuz its so hot and humid. Sometimes I shower three times a day. But yeah that’s pretty much my day till I get out of here. I get out of this place on Wednesday and fly straight to Kumasi. It’s about an hour flight from Accra. Be happy to get out of this prison.
          So I have seen the fufu here and yeah it looks and tastes like a bunch of stuff you would feed to the pigs. But yeah, it is not much. I wouldn’t even classify it as food to be honest. I have had pineapple. It is really, really good. I have had some oranges, bananas and apples, they are really good too.
          Tell everyone I said hi and that I love em. Talk to ya next week. 
                  love Ty

Hello Everyone,
          I just arrived Friday at the Accra Mtc. It is going great. The plane ride was kinda long and tiring. A complete culture shock!! There are people everywhere selling anything you can imagine. But yeah I had some nasty rice and some nasty meat, and now it is not much better. I am adjusting to the food slowly but it still aint much! Its pretty gross. I am pretty much just living off of one granola bar a day. haha!!! I think I am going to need a smaller belt. I’m running out of holes.
          My companion is from Kenya and is a good companion. And the people I meet are nice. It is very very hot and humid. I sweat just standing in the hall ways. We went to the temple today and just got back. You wouldn’t believe people in the roads selling anything and everything.
          Well that is good to hear that you guys are working and doing well.  So talk to you guys next week.
                     Love Elder Blackburn
