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

Post 23

Hi Everyone,
          Well here it is Monday again.  Wow!! Haha.. Well this past week was allright for us.  It rained all day on Tuesday, and has rained pretty much everyday or night since then. It slows down the work a little, but its kind of nice to just relax and escape to my suitcase full of goodies and pictures. Haha… Yeah, so yesterday, the Palmers came and they brought the other package. It was really nice to see what you all sent. Thanks!! I really enjoyed it. Like I told you before, it is like Christmas when us missionaries get packages. Haha…
          Ok, so we have been going to the new site twice a week and teaching David, Eric, and Philip. We have gotten to the Plan of Salvation on Eric and Phillip; and the Gospel of Jesus Christ with David. So with David, he can’t walk and barely gets around, so he really can’t do anything. We gave him a reading assignment (Ether 12) which talks about Faith. On Thursday we are going to follow up, and talk about the priesthood.  Probably when I feel the spirit the most is when I recite the first vision. The spirit is always the strongest when teaching the first vision. We will see what happens. But other than that nothing new has happened. The new building should be ready by the 15th of October, and then we can move in. But until then, nothing much will happen cuz it’s too far for our people to travel to the chapel we have now.
          So yesterday, we were just resting under this tree with a bunch of sheep tied up around that were for sale. We asked the man how much? he said, 30 cedis, which is like 15 dollars for a big ol buck. We were thinking of buying one, but then we don’t have anything to really dress it out, or prepare it, so we just have to stick with chicken!! haha…  (just kidding) But I did think that was really cheap for a good sized sheep. Also, we were walking down this place where some tro-tro's are, and there was this kid selling horse meat. They looked like kabobs on a stick. We walked by and he was shouting “Horse! Horse!” Pretty different for sure. I didn’t think that they ate horse here. But guess not. So just a couple of crazy things this past week.
          We are going to Kumasi tomorrow for a Zone Conference, and then on Wednesday, all of the foreigners are suppose to come back to Obuasi for something (not too sure what it is). So we are going to be staying the night at Atafoa, which is Cockrums old area.
          Oh, about the pictures, everybody looks so good and happy. You all look like life is good, and that you are treasuring the moment. Make sure you remember to do so. Just as the B-day card you sent, "Dont ever let go of the past, they have molded you to the person you are today." It went something like that. So yeah, thanks for everything!!  Best of luck in all you do.
    Till next week!!!!
           Love, Ty
