HEY once again from Ghana!

Well this week I hope this original email sends so I don’t have to restart! Not much to report! I’ll just let you know how the week was. We're doing better with working with members now that HS is out. We have
some youth that are preparing for a mission so they're going to start coming out with us almost every day! So we'll probably do splits which is great because then we can really increase our teaching pool by finding a lot! And they can both translate for us so no excuse for not contacting people that don’t speak English!

We had our first Zone training with President Simpson this last week and it was GREAT!!! I love the way he teaches! We actually studied Doctrine and Covenants 93 together. This section talks about us gaining Light and Truth or "Intelligence". We came to the conclusion the way we gain more light and truth in this life is by study, prayer, fasting and obedience to the commandments! Just as an example, look at any of the apostles or better, the Prophet. They have so much knowledge of the gospel. It comes by their obedience to the Lord and their personal study of the gospel.

Another thing from this week, President has challenged us to pray each day in our companionship at 12 o’clock noon for new investigators or people to teach. Well this last week on the days that we followed that challenge, we had successful days. And the days were we forgot to pray we had a lot of failed appointments and a not so successful days. So again, we must have obedience to those the Lord has appointed to receive revelation for the work of the Lord to move forward! In this case, the words of my mission president.

We've been challenged to also read the Book of Mormon cover to cover before the end of the year to increase the spirit within the mission. I’m very excited to do this because I always learn something new while reading the Book of Mormon. I'll also extend this challenge to anyone whose reading this email. And if you’re already reading it, just keep going and then circle back to where you start. As you do this remember to ponder about the message it contains and then pray and ask our Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, if the book is true,  and by the power of the Holy Ghost, and through your faith, you will come to know that the Book of Mormon IS Another Testament of Jesus Christ!

Thank you for all your support and love you send! May God bless you
each day this week.
Smile and remember Jesus Loves you ;)
