HEY YALL!!! Another good week has gone by.
This last week we had a great Zone Conference where we got to hear from our beloved mission President! What an inspiring man! His topic was about obedience and it really helped me see the importance of being more obedient to not only the commandment but also as a missionary, the mission rules. It’s about ALWAYS having the spirit with you. Not just to help you but to help your investigators feel the spirit during the lessons. As we are obedient to mission rules, it keeps us safe and helps us to be better testifiers of the restored gospel!
Another part of the week, we actually had a young man pass away in our ward. He was only 28 years old and it really shocked everyone! Elder Kabwika gave a great talk on Sunday during Sacrament meeting about the plan of salvation.
Even though I have knowledge about Gods plan for us it was reassuring to learn again that this life is not the end. It’s just the beginning of Gods great plan for us. As we learn from the Book of Mormon, we learned in the spirit world that this life isn’t the end. Our goal is to do what is required before we leave this life. Those requirements are found throughout scriptures.
John 3:5 talks of baptism and receiving the Holy Ghost.
2nd Nephi 31 talks about all the gospel of Jesus Christ and about having faith in Christ, repentance, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. I’m grateful for the knowledge of all these things.
This week we’re planning to have 2 baptisms. The first SISTER DIVYA!!!! YEEEHHAWWW and Lawrence. Sis. D is the longest investigator I’ve worked with. But I learned this week that the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about progression. We may not be perfect in living the Gospel but we're perfectly working towards it!
I hope everyone has a great Valentines week and feels the love that Christ has for each of us. And don’t forget the love our Heavenly Father has for us! JOHN 3:16
More baby face for momma...(Honestly, can he please bring me home a baby or 2 or 10!)
Banku: is pounded until it can be formed into a sticky ball. It is apparently made with corn meal, and typically also plantains. The corn meal is allowed to ferment a bit, which gives it a mildly sour flavor. Banku is usually served with soup, stew or pepper sauce and fish.
Perhaps the most well-known Ghana staple is fufu (FOO-foo). Fufu is ubiquitous in West Africa; it’s a staple starch that’s often eaten with stew. It’s made with boiled cassava and plantains that are pounded. And pounded. And pounded. And pounded.
Until they form a cohesive, gelatinous mass.
