Zone Activity at Kankoom National Park and Baptisms

Hello Family and Friends! How are you all doing? I hope that everything is well with you. This past week was a pretty good week for us, still working with some of our investigators like Brother Ninson. Unfortunately he hasn't been coming to church so if you could pray for him that would be really great. 
So on Monday we had a Zone Activity at Kankoom National Park! It's on the way to Praso, so it was cool to go out that way for the first time. Kankoom is pretty popular so we saw some tourists there, but it was really cool to go on the Canopy Walk and to see the HUGE TREES!  I just loved it. Some of the Sisters were really scared on the rope bridges, but they all safety made it. I really had a good time, and I took some photos so I hope you enjoy them :)

Tuesday we had normal District Meeting and I talked about Using the Scriptures Effectively, how we can use them  to the best of our ability.  I apologize in advance because the rest of the week was pretty slow: we saw Brother Ninson and have been trying to help him out. We are also still seeing if Mary Mensah needs to be Re-baptized and are still working with Mary Eshoun, it is just seeing her that's been a problem. 

On Saturday I had the privilege  of interviewing a Family for the Abura Sisters and that was really great, and we got to go to Incontrado. We had a miracle while we were there. Finding people is really hard here, because there isn't such a thing as addresses, so you have to go off of main places like "Near The Community Center" which is kind of hard, especially when we were trying to find a young women named Hannah (She is a really sweet young woman in our Branch, who is very active but the rest of the family has fallen a less active). But she told us she lives near the Community Center so we decided to try and find her (She doesn't have a phone either which made it really hard to see her) so went and we were trying to find her, but we weren't having any success. 

So I  said "She told us she lives around the Community Center so let's ask around there" So we went there and we talked to a small young women and Guess what? She took us to Hannah's Place! It was exciting, and it turns out that she is Hannah's Cousin and we talked to her and we invited her to come visit us at Church, and she came! It was neat for me to see that when we don't give up the Lord really will help us if we are trying to do what's right. Sister Hannah then gave us a referral of a young man named Joseph who we were able to sit down with for the first time and it was really nice. So that was pretty cool! 

That night we received Transfer News! Elder Gasolo is getting transferred to Kissi (Elmina Zone) to be with Elder Blay! (He was our Assistant but is now getting released his last 2 transfers so, he is going to be a great companion for Elder Gasolo) and Elder Yao and I are staying in Ntranoa! YAY! I am happy, because I really am excited for the work here in Ntranoa, so I know that it's going to be a good transfer. This is my 4th Transfer here, so I might get transferred in December, but we shall see. 
On Sunday our companionship went to Abura and I did the last interview for the Family. The Husband) who actually did not pass (first person I couldn't pass for Baptism) which was really heartbreaking for me, because he was a sweet guy; it's just that he participated in an abortion unknowingly when he was younger and his friend asked him to help her cook some herbs and then she told him later that she lost the baby, so he didn't really know that he was helping her have an abortion, he was just trying to help her out, but I was trying to call President Stevenson to talk to him so we could get the "OK" for him to get baptized on Sunday but unfortunately he was out of town, and the phone wasn't going through so the family got baptized, and his baptism will be later, but he totally understood and told the Sisters "It's better that I do the right thing then to get baptized wrongly". So his baptism will be great when it comes up. After that Elder Gasolo was saying his last goodbyes to the people here in Ntranoa, and they were sad to hear that he is going. Well that is all for this week! I hope that everything is going well for you all. I am thinking about you, and am keeping you all in my prayers, have a great week! :)
Elder Harward
