It’s been a long/short 2 years serving in Ghana..
I’ll save the long story for when I get home... this will actually be my last email home so no emails next week. But you are definitely INVITED to come and visit me in the house Wednesday going. I’ll be in another cultural shock...just the other way around then how it was 2 years ago. 
But as it’s my last week, we have a lot of traveling to do which takes up most of my time for proselyting this week. 
Today we're in Accra to the mission home to sleep over for the devotional with Elder Renlund tomorrow.

And then the rest of the week is traveling, traveling and then next week will also be more traveling!!

Let me just briefly share with you my testimony!!

I know God the Father and his beloved son Jesus Christ LIVE!!!
They love each and every one of us. 
I know The Church and the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ was restored to this earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. God chose him to be an instrument in bringing back the truth. 
I know the Book of Mormon is Another Testament of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Combined with the Holy Bible, we are shown the true Gospel of Christ.
I know that President Thomas S. Monson is God’s chosen Prophet on the earth at this time. As we "Follow the Prophet" we will be shown the way we need to go to help us come closer to our Heavenly father.
I KNOW the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real!! I LOVE IT!! I use it, because I'm not perfect but I'm grateful our Father in Heaven sent his Son to this earth so that we might know the way to follow. 

Thanks to everyone for the support you've given me over the last 2 years!! I really appreciate it!! May God continue to bless all of you!!! 

Hope to see ya next week!!!!

Hey Y’all!!
Well another week gone by. Things are starting to seem more and more real.
This week we had some better luck in finding more people to teach.
We’ve really been searching for new people and our mission president told us we should look at the unbaptized list in the branch. So we did and we were able to locate a family in the branch that actually has a son on a mission. The father and one of the sons are baptized members, but from his family we’ve met 3 of his children who have not been baptized.  Now we’re teaching all the family and things are going really great! They all came to church on Sunday which was so great to see.

Fransisca is progressing well. She's going to be baptized on the 11th of AUG. Wow...tomorrow is AUG!!! COOL!!!

This last week we also had our Multi Zone conference and it was a special one to me because i was able to share my testimony!! Kind of a touching moment...but I didn’t cry. ha ha

You know what...I was thinking this week. We were sitting with the Ahorsu family (the new family we met) this week and one of the young boys asked us a question as we were sharing with them the First vision. He asked "did Joseph smith really see God and Jesus Christ?"..
And to have the ability to quickly reply and say to him with all my Heart! "Yes, I testify to you that Joseph Smith saw our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ” was such a great feeling!! I’ve come to love testifying of that truth! Because I do know that it is true!!
And having that knowledge brings me happiness.  I know where I can find the truth.
I hope we all have the ability to testify of that truth to our friends and family members. I've learned on my mission, if it really means something to you, stand up for it!'

Well this will be my last full week of proselyting. Next week we do a lot of traveling to Accra and back to the bush and back to Accra as my mission comes to a close!!
Hope y’all have a great week!
Love and miss y’all!

Hey y’all!!

It’s been a while!! Well this is week 4 or 6... And ALL IS WELL!!!

There’s really not much to share. My companion was made the branch executive secretary so we could help the Asuom branch progress to become a ward when the district becomes a stake.

We're still searching for people to teach. It’s becoming really hard as not a lot of people are not in the house in the mornings because they all go to the farm. And those who are home are 60-100 years old and don’t speak a lick of English...but that’s OKAY!! We have a couple people we're preparing for Baptism on the 11th of August, right before coming home. We're teaching this young 13 year old girl who is just a DOLL!!!Her name is Fransisca. She doesn’t like speaking English. She can read though...but she’s just a small shy little girl who likes to laugh a lot. We enjoy teaching her. She’s living with some members so it’s helping her to progress really well.

This week we'll have our Multi Zone conference. I’ll have another opportunity to share my testimony with everyone there. And then in 2 weeks we'll be going to Accra to meet an Apostle at the temple site. Elder Renlund. That'll be cool!!!

Well thanks for y’alls support! Love and miss y’all!
Have a great week!
