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 Family,
          Well today we came to town (Kumasi) and went to the cultural center and bought a few things like hand weaved baskets and smocks. Ha.. And now I’m finally able to send a few pics.
          So church yesterday was great! We had 12 investigators come, but still a bunch that wanted to didn't make it. We are hoping for maybe 3 possible baptisms this next month.
          It finally rained for the first time in 2 months. Just enough to clean the roofs off and keep the dust down, but now its starting to pick back up. It’s been pretty over cast, so it holds the heat down and the humidity. But for the most part things are OK.  We haven’t had power hardly at all. Maybe each day we get if for a few hours, just enough to charge our phones and cool our water in the fridge.  It’s a good thing we don’t store much food in the fridge or we would be out of luck.
          We have been able to make progress with our people. Owusu John is a man who came to church on his own last Sunday. We were able to meet him on Saturday. He is a guy that is really prepared and ready to receive the gospel. We actually contacted his house a while ago with the help of the Spirit, but we did not meet him, and some time down the road he found us.
          The snake skin I bought a few weeks ago was 200 cedis, which was a pretty good buy. The man started at 350 and I got him down because I bought other stuff from him, so now I’m his customer.  So the snake skin rolls up. They say they have regulations on importing fruits and animals from other countries into the USA; so I’m not sure how to get him home, or should I send it through the mail?
          Sounds like things are going good back home and you are all doing fine and enjoying life. It’s going to be a shock for me to get back and actually have lights for more than a few hours a day. Haha… Well better go!  Take Care! May God Bless!
                                    Love,  E. Blackburn
