Hello everyone! Monday was a huge holiday here so we switched our preparation day so that we could actually do things like get food for the week. Actually, we were basically told we had to. So, here we are on Tuesday.
The week was pretty interesting … filled with a lot of rain, sickness and miracles. It was raining all day Monday and Tuesday and the work was pretty slow because there was almost no one out on the streets. Plus, all of our visits bailed on us. Then on Wednesday we had a pretty good meeting with our Branch President and talked about all the changes we need to make as a branch to improve our missionary work together (i.e. actually do our branch mission plan). The meeting was really good, the only problem was that I ended up leaving the meeting with a fever and a pretty nice flu. Then on Friday the Lord pulled through as He always does. We worked a few hours with Francis in the morning and found a large amount of new people to teach and got to pass by (i.e. meet with) a lot of people.
Another miracle this week was when Bryan, our branch mission leader, came back from the United States – so we got to see his pretty face again as well as talk about the mysteries of God together. Sunday was good – I got a surprise invitation to translate a talk right as Otoo, a Ghanaian, was going up to give his talk. It was actually a pretty good talk about the Church of Jesus Christ today. Should be a crazy week this coming week, we are super excited though. The Lord is forever blessing!
Let’s see what else … advice for the week: just be happy.
