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

Hello Everyone,
          How is everything? I hope you are dong well.  So anyway, for us here in Boukrom things were pretty good at the beginning of the week, but on Sunday morning we were just somehow devasted when all the people we had in mind of calling and inviting to church were either sleeping, or didnt want to pick, or just promised us all week that they surely will be there on Sunday and didn't come. Well as we know,  the majority of the people we see, and for the most part the people we teach, tell us what we want to hear. Whether it be coming to church, praying, reading, or just being around the next time. So to sum it all up, we had one person come to church. As for the people from Michigan; S and his friends, they told us they were out all Saturday night at the pub enjoying. They told us they have alcohol /drinking problems. That is the only thing that will be holding them back from baptisms. We met with them for the first time on Wednesday evening. The spirit was very strong. You could of heard a pin drop when we were quoting the first vision.  They all felt of it’s presence for sure. But we are working and praying for them.  They sell Africa arts, paintings, carvings, clothe, etc. in America.  They are cool guys to be around.  They just need a helping hand with a few things.
          Anyway, Elder Agbeko is doing great. He is picking up on things pretty fast and gaining confidence when he teaches.  I actually think he is progressing faster than I did at first. I would have to say that my trainer Elder Meredith was a very patient and fun loving companion.
          Today we had a District activity at Dichemso Chapel, (The Stake Center). We were suppose to start at ten thirty. All of us were there ready and waiting, except for the sisters. They finally showed up around 12:30 pm. Meanwhile, we just played football; well African football, which is soccer, and we also played dodgeball.  So when they finally got there,  we ate and then came to town.   On our way coming today, some people were driving this three wheeler thing with this big bull hog tied in the bed of it. It almost had it about tipped over once, but they had to get a few guys to hold it down. Haha..
          I dont think I will be training the rest of my mission. I will probably get to at least once more before I go home. You can see how President Holmes works with the majority of missionaries. They start off in training, then DL, then ZL, then usually you train again before you go home. President Holmes says he wants every one to have a responsibility or assignment like that in order to be ready for future church callings.
          So anyway thanks for all the info about everything.  I hope and pray that it starts to snow and Winter comes quickly. Things are good over here. So I better go.  Time is running out. Talk next week. Take care!  Love you.
                         Love Ty 1+
