March 23, 2015

Hello everybody! :)
this week was rather stellar! :)
we started out on tuesday with an X-ray, that went well... its fun to look at the interesting twists, turns, and backflips my spine does! hopefully i get to figure that out soon.
on wednesday we had an awesome lesson with Marie-Rose again, she is still going hard, full of faith. we dont think she is willing or ready to change religions or anything, but visiting her can only do good. even if its her that builds us up! :P
then thursday we got to go to Opoku's house and talk about the restoration, that family is doing so well! and after that we went to two members houses to talk to them, get the missionary motivation light under their bums, and both visits went super well! one of the visits was with the branch president, and at first they were like we dont really talk to alot of people, then his wife was like "oh, but i talked to this neighbor and this friend and her cousin and their dog and the half sister of the renter from the house 3 doors down from here, we also gave that person a book of mormon..." etc... so that was a super good time, that couple is so dang inspiring. i want to become like them some day. thats one of my favourite things about being on a mission. you get to observe and watch people-see traits that i want, that i like, that i dislike, i really just get to see a smorg of attributes then try to apply them to myself, or write them down to apply later in marriage or child-rearing or whatever. obviously i like to trach the gospel and bring others to Christ, thats a given. but its fun to see who i can become, see the traits that i read about in preach my gospel and in the scriptures, but they are spread out, im jsut trying to see how other people have applied them and i can do the same if it worked well for them!
on friday i was feleing sick, (i think it was the branch presidents food...) but that didnt last long, jsut during studies. we taught Jean-Pierre and we went to Alexandras and taught Guerda and Sando, we are going to try to set a date for them to be baptized soon! hopefully that goes well! and we had some more time so we swung by a less actives house and had a great lesson with him and his daughter, his daughter asked if she could practice her english with us and we were like, ugh, we have a family from Ghana that were teaching, you could come along with us to teach them and that way you could practice your english too! :D and she was down, so thats going to be sweet! :)
saturday we had a sweet lesson with Madalina, she opened up alot and is doing really well. shes so honest and kind and just has very pure intentions. God is really going to bless her soon, shes an honest seeker of truth, and we know that God answers those that seek with pure intent, and she is FULL of real intent! i love when good things are about to happen!
Pray for us, pray for our investigators. i love you all, i appreciate your kindness in emailing me and showing me your support.
have a good week! <3
