This past week was good. It rained a little last night. Just enough to keep the dust down and freshen things up. Yesterday we were able to have a baptism for Samuel, and also the bishop’s daughter. She turned 8; so her as well. Samuel was really excited and he also felt really welcomed after the baptism when everyone came up and shook his hand and welcomed him in. Samuel was really happy, and I could tell he was excited leading up to it. I asked him how he felt when we were walking back afterwards. He told me he feels like he can start a new chapter of his life, and has been holding so many opportunities back. But now he says he is going to go for them, and is willing to do anything the Lord asks of him. So just by hearing that showed me how much the gospel can change a persons life, and how much better we can become with it.
So Buokrom has lots of middle class people, and the rest are very poor. As for the rest of the investigators; we are planning on baptizing Mike on the 23, also a few new guys that have come out of the wood work, that have been prepared by their family. So it’s going good here. Elder Agbeko and I are doing well. We are occasionally having referrals given to us by other missionaries or the church. Those are people that have been prepared by the Lord, and are ready to make the step towards baptisms into the church.
So yes, I’m doing my best by writing in my journal. It sounds like everything is going good back home, and everyone is great. Many blessing are being poured out upon you guys. It’s good to hear about the winter storms and all the moisture. Better go!! So take care!!
