July 17 & 24, 2017

Hey everyone!!!!

How are all of you? I hope that you are all doin good, I am doing great! I am even in a new area! Yeah thats right, I got transferred one last time! I am now in Adenta 3. I have gone back to my home. It feels weird coming back after so long. 

These last 2 weeks have been pretty good. We had a zone contacting activity at Junction mall a couple weeks ago, it was pretty fun. We were all able to hang out. It was mostly saying good bye to people in Teshie and getting to know the new area. We also had a lot of guys go home as well. Had to say good bye to some friends. The mission is so different now. 

We've got a multi zone activity tomorrow, so that is nice. Then next week we get to hear and meet Elder Renlund at the dedication of the new MTC!! I hope we will also get to tour the new MTC. Other than that not much is goin on. My new comp is named Elder Bayo. He is from Sierra Leone. He comes from a big family and several of his siblings have served missions. He has been out as long as my son, Elder Wilkins. Elder Bayo is a great guy and I think we will do really well together. That's about it for now, I hope that you all have a great week!

Hey everyone!!

I hope that everyone is doing well, I am doing great! We have had a good last couple of weeks, we even have had baptisms! Both Ezekiel and Jude got baptized. Sadly I was not able to go to them because I got sick the morning of, but they still happened, so it's all good. 

Well, we already have our new mission president and we have met him. President Keyes is really a great man, I really wish I had more time to serve under him. He truly will do an amazing job. We had a multi zone where we got to meet him and I got to see a lot of old friends, so that was nice. 

Also, it's official, I GOT MY FLIGHT ITINERARY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man it was so weird to get that, but it feels great at the same time!! I will get home on November 7th. Today we had a multi zone activity at Labadi Beach, it was really really fun! It was a little weird to be at the beach today and think about what it will be like to actually get in the water in about 4 months. 

Truly I dont know where the time is going anymore. We are already a third through the month and it seems to still be speeding up. I truly am treasuring the little time I have left. I know that the Church is true and that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Joseph Smith was called to be the Prophet of the Restoration so that we could be saved in the last days. I know missionary work is of the Lord. I love all of you!! Have a great week!!!!!!!! (less than 4 MONTHS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
