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 All,
          Well It’s nice to once again be able to email. We came to Kumasi today because I’m fed up with the cafe's in Offinso. There’s no a/c, too slow, can't send pictures, ha.. , so we decided to come to town. We are at Yodafone cuz the other one had a fire and burnt all the wires up or something like that. Esplin and his companion are here too. Anyway, so I have officially 4 transfers left. I would like to finish in Offinso. I’m tired of being transferred.
          So Saturday, we had a baptism which was the first convert/baptism here in Offinso, it was for Kwabena Issac, and yesterday he was confirmed. It was great! Only if we could of had the others that we prepared, but hopefully next month we will have them. We had to go to Suame, which is in Kumasi for the baptism. The Offin River was also an option, but it looked pretty sketchy.  Also Pres. Holmes was going to bring more missionaries here, but we told him its too small; so we will remain at 4.
          Starting church at 8 is not a very good deal. Everyone comes around 8 thirty to nine. Luckily the church next door was not there, so we could of started at nine. The group leader asked me to give a talk 2 min before the meeting started, haha… It went pretty well. I just talked on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
          We met with the family we met the previous week. Yesterday, the dad came to church, but not the wife and kids. Maybe next week. We had a total of 30 yesterday at church, which was great. It has rained a lot lately.  The dry season will start next month or so. Thanks for all the news and updates. Have a good week! Well take care!!
                                                         Love ya, Elder Ty Blackburn
