Hey Y'all!! Sorry it's been a while.
Just a quick update on the work
This week we're planning for a baptism!!! YEE HAW #2 in Asuom. We were actually planning to baptize 3 people this Friday but turns out it'll only be 1. One of our investigators traveled and the other...well her Father isn't to happy with us teaching her so, please help and pray that Sis Bridget's father will soften his heart and allow his daughter to receive her salvation!!
Then next week we're planning for another young man to be baptized and the week after for one more young man to be baptized. So far our teaching pool is made up of youth ageing from 10-21. Those seem to be the most receptive to our message out here. It could be seen as a good thing. They are the rising generation of the church.
This week will be a very, very busy week! Tuesday we have to go do baptismal interview's for one of our District leaders. His area is like a 1 hr-15 min drive. 1hr taxi and 15 min Moto ride.

It is also the "bushiest" place in the mission so it's a pretty cool village to see.

Wednesday we need our own interview for our investigator. Wednesday night we'll drive down to one of our district's apartment's to sleep over because on Thursday we leave at 6 am to go to Accra for a multi-zone conference. We leave so early because we live 4 hrs from the city. It's a great bumpy drive down there.
That's about it for Asuom. My companion is preparing to go home. He only has about 2 weeks left.
Well thanks for the emails and support!! 
I hope yall have a great week!

With love,

Hey Mom-
This last week was good. I don't have much time today as we went to see a Obruni Palm Plantation.
I'll go ahead and try to answer the questions you sent:
Im am positive that I'll be dying in Asuom!! President has told me a couple times now. The work is coming along small small. A lot of people in our teaching pool are below the age of 18. We have one 21 year old.... We're preparing people for a baptism on the 16th of this month. 

I didn't have a translator when I gave my talk last week instead I just talked in my Ghanaian accent. Most members understand small English. Things with the comp are fine. The whole apartment is just kinda done with one another. But we're just getting through the transfer. My companion and I talk openly. I've been teaching him some "life skills" the last few weeks. Just when it comes to relationships with people. How he addresses people and talks to them. He can be a little pushy sometimes. He's improved a lot from the first time I met him.

Nothing too interesting this last week. I was shocked by electricity...really bad. ha ha... okay not super bad but it made me fall onto the bed next to me. I was just trying to pull a plug out and BAMMM 220 volts right into my hand! That was a pretty cool experience! I wouldn't recommend it though.
WellIi love and miss you!! I hope you have a great week at girls camp and enjoy the time with the Young Women!!
LOVE YOU BIGGER THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW,
