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

Hey Everyone,
         Things here in Offinso are going just swell. For the most part everything is fine here. Yesterday’s church service went well. It seems like every week it gets better. I think we had 35 or so come. It was fast and testimony Sunday. It went better than I thought it would.  Usually in small branches or groups, it is pretty long cuz there is really no one to bear testimony after about 10 or 15 min. So me and my companion had to keep it going a little and take up some time.  haha…  Once we finished, the church next door started up their drums and speaking in tongues. Talk about a complete head ache!!
          We are hoping for a few baptisms towards the end of the month or so. One guy named Okyere wants to be baptized, but is a Seventh day Adventist.  His dad told him if he joins us he will kick him out. We will meet with him this week and try and find the best solution.  So yes, on Saturday we had a FM. (free meal) It was yam with garden egg stew; one of my favorites.
          We have gotten to know some of our neighbors that live in the same building as us. Also a few others around, they seem like pretty nice people.
          I hope you had a good Halloween.  Who all dressed up?  And yes, the holidays are pretty much here.  Thanksgiving and then Christmas, I can’t wait!!! But yeah, that is about it.  It sounds like everyone is doing well and everything is great for you guys! Thanks for everything! Best of luck this week.  Till next time.
                                       Love Elder Ty Blackburn

It's a truck full of Oranges. (this is just a small one) You should see the big
semi's loaded up with melons or oranges going to the north.
