February 1, 2016

Hello Everyone!!

How are you all doing?! I hope you are doing well. So this week was kind of a bummer. The baptisms we had planned didn't happen. The reason is because in African tradition you have to present a dowry and some money to take the womans hand in marraige. You can't just tell the family that you got married at the LDS church and that she is now your wife. Of course in church policy that is what is supposed to happen, but in traditional culture here you have to present a dowry in order to marry a woman. So that was our big problem. It really put a damper on the entire week because they both really want to get baptized so we are hoping that they are able take care of that quickly. Please keep them in your prayers.  

Our district did have a little get together though, so that was fun. One of the sister missionaries leaves tomorrow so our district got together to say good-bye to her. We also watched the worldwide missionary broadcast this week, so that was really nice. I learned a lot of things from it. This work is definitely hard, but I am so glad I am doing it! The baptisms will come soon, I know it. Today for P-day Elder Kohler and I went to the Accra Mall and chilled there for the day. It was really fun. We even got pizza!  Inline image 1
Well I love you all! Until next week!
