How are you? I hope that you are doing well! I am doing good. It is just weird for me because we are already in December. I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoyed being with family. So many things have happened, the United States even has a new president! Things here in the mission are going great. The week that Rose got baptized the mission had 40 baptisms and over 400 new investigators. The work here in Ghana is moving forward quickly and I am really glad I get to be a part of it.
It is hard to believe that it is already the end of another year. I can remember last year when I was not quite a month old on my mission and was still trying to get used to everything. Now we are already a year into it and next year at this time I will be home! It really is hard to believe! I'm not really sure where the time goes. I am now a district leader (DL), so that is definitely more responsibility. I also know that I will be leaving Suhum in January, so I am sad about that. Just got to work my hardest for these last few weeks here. These have been a good couple weeks. We have had good success seeing the people we have been teaching. We haven't had any luck with Frank, but we are praying that he keeps making progress. None of the rest of our investigators are ready for baptism yet, but we are working with them. I just love Suhum so much and am not yet ready to leave it.
This coming Thursday are the elections here in Ghana. Pres. Heid has asked us to stay in and deep clean our apartments just to be safe. Things are usually pretty calm, but Pres. Heid just wants to make sure that everyone is OK. I ended up getting a small infection in my ear and had to spend a day going to and from Accra to have the mission doctor look at it. He cleaned it out, gave me some antibiotics and its healing nicely, so all is well. Also, 1 YEAR BABY!!!!!! I forgot to do that a couple weeks ago so I had to do it now. I love all of you so much and I hope that all of you are able to have a memorable Christmas season. Always try to remember the real reason of Christmas, the birth of our Lord and Savior. I love you so much!! Have a good week!
