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,
          Everything sounds to be going well for you all over in the Western part of the world, and your being blessed in many ways.  So Mom, that is cool that you were able to meet up with Elder Esplins mom and talk for a while about us missionaries. Yeah, the area that he is in now was part of my area when I was there. Maybe he will come to Buokrom and be the next DL here.
          So about Africa, ha ha.. It’s all going good. This past week we didn’t get much done cuz it’s too dang hot. About everywhere we go people want us to come and pound their fufu; which is tiring. The first pound the plantain separates from the cassava, then they pound them both together. It takes about 20 or so minutes.
          So as for us over here in Kumasi not too much out of the ordinary has happened. Just lots of idiot drivers that have road rage! I’m surprised that there hasn’t been a massive pile up yet. There is hardly no stoplights, just round abouts.  In the morning and evening times, traffic gets backed up for miles sometimes. Last week we went to an activity at Bantama Chapel; which was for the YSA and missionaries and their investigators.  There was football and a few other games.  On the way back, there is a place called Sofoline, it's the place we go to catch a tro tro back to Buokrom. So anyway, once we got going up the over pass/spaghetti bowl type of a thing, there was this big gap/hole where they had just put a bunch of boards and rocks covering it. We could see how some people had drove into it, and they just covered it up!! So that kinda freaked us out!! 100 feet in the air with holes in the over pass!!
          Yeah, I think I’ll more than likely be transferred. I’m about ready for a change, it would be nice to go outside of Kumasi with less noise and less people. I’ll know for sure on the 28. If not I’ll stay here and just be released as DL. The investigators are doing good. We still have challenges with most of them. They have plenty of things come in their path when we start teaching them.
          Anyway, yeah I have heard that drinking a coke a day cleans out the parasites. Yeah, I have done that. I usually have a coke; if not everyday, about every other.   So thanks for all the news and keeping me up to date on everyone. Thanks for everything! Take care! May God Bless! Till next week!
                       Love  Ty
