Well another good week here in Ghana!

Kind of a crazy week with the Elections and all. We had our Pday on Tuesday and then had to stay in on Thursday because that’s when the results were supposed to come out. WELL they didn’t! Until Friday evening and when they came. Ghana went crazy!!!!!!!!! Noise from everyone, everywhere!

Well it’s 2 more weeks till I get to call home!! 3 out of 4 down!! WOW!! 
In the coming 2 weeks before Christmas we have some good days coming up!
This week we'll be watching the First Presidency Christmas devotional for our Zone Training and Wedding on Saturday for a member in our ward! Then next week we'll have another Zone Conference for Christmas and then next Saturday (Christmas Eve) we've planned to go Christmas Caroling at the Mall near our area!! Which I’m soooo excited for because I love Christmas songs!!! 

This month it seems everyone is distracted with Christmas and everything. We’re (Zone leaders) are trying to help the zone to stay focused and try to keep working hard. Even we're somehow having a tough time!! The biggest struggle we have right now is 5!! That is 5 of our investigators who have baptismal dates aren’t legally married with their spouse...sooo we won’t be able to Baptize them until they we help them figure that out! That’s what been frustrating me a lot the last few weeks!! Because we've been teaching these people, prepping them for baptism and then we find out. They aren’t legally married ha-ha
Opposition in all things!!!

Well just a quick uplifting note this week that I had in my while studying the Book of Mormon this week. I’ve shared this before but because I read it this week ill share it again! 

Helaman 5:12
" 12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Just a little reminder this Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ...He was born. He is there and he lives!! I know he does. Let us now build our foundation on HIM!! When we do that, we'll stand against the whirlwinds and the mighty storms which are sent upon us!! 
The Lord is my light, then why should I fear?? 

I’m grateful for my testimony in the Savior Jesus Christ! I’m grateful for his atoning sacrifice he made for us. I’m grateful for the opportunity to repent and change while applying his atonement in my life! I encourage all to use the atonement in their lives to change for the better! As we say, we are followers of Jesus Christ, let’s do our best to apply his teachings and share the light of Christ with everyone!!

Hope everyone has a great week!! Happy holidays. Miss y’all so much!
Much Love,
Elder Morris
