Last Letter

Hello Family and Friends!
Well can you believe it? This is the last email from Ghana that you guys will receive from me. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL!

This last week was pretty nice. We gave out a total of B.O.Ms........ 152! Yay!! I wanted to push myself from the 100 and do more and we did it with that and I am so grateful for sharing the Book of Mormon it really helped me to testify of it more. Other than that we have been seeing some few members and Investigators. We even got to eat some Cake! I was surprised to see this stand and they wanted us to buy so they lowered the price for us. IT WAS SO GOOD! Although after I ate it I wasn't feeling super hot haha. My body is not used to Sugar right now, but I am sure I will get there haha. I also got to instruct on Tuesday and I guess I am Instructing again this last Tuesday (In front of the whole zone) so I will tell you guys about it on Sunday. I have been saying some goodbyes this past week and it's been hard.

I'll be honest I never thought I would be this sad to go home. When I first came on my mission I looked so forward to this day, but now being here has brought it into new perspective. I love Ghana so much. I love it all. The people, The land, The culture, even the food. FuFu for life haha! This has been the best 2 years of my life. I know that Missionary Work will need to still continue, and that there is some other person needed here in Ghana, and they need to be here over me at this time. But what I know now is that my mission experience was not meant to be a one time moment, because now it's my job to continue to apply the things that I learned on my mission, throughout the rest of my life. I need to always do my Heavenly Father's will. I will never forget all of the amazing people here and all that I have learned. I hope to always continue to increase my love and my discipleship each and ever single day.

As Jesus Christ himself said in Doctrine and Covenants Section 1 verse 30 "the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth, with which I, the Lord am well pleased." I know that this is Truly this is the Lords True Church, and I know with all of my heart that Joseph Smith Truly was A Prophet of God and he did see our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Because of that moment we now have all the saving Ordinances to help us Return to our Heavenly Father, and become as he is.

I am so grateful for this knowledge, and I hope to always continue be a true Disciple of Jesus Christ.

I will see you all on SUNDAY! :)

My Last Full Week in Ghana

Hello Family and Friends!
I hope last week you had a happy Mother's Day to you all! I hope that you enjoyed time with your family during the weekend. It was SO nice to talk to my family right before I come home so I am so grateful for them and all that they do. It's been a pretty nice week indeed...
So the start of the week my companion wasn't feeling too well, but he is doing better and we are grateful for that. But on Wednesday we were able to go to Ntranoa for an FM by Brother Ninson and his family. I guess they wanted me to come one last time before I left. I love this family so much and I love the people in Ntranoa so much, they are so great. I gave the Branch some pictures too, so hopefully they enjoy it.
On Friday I went on my last exchange with Elder Kiiza(My District Leader) in Abura Dunkwa! It was really nice and I got this AWESOME lunch from Elder Nemet with Chicken and Rice and Stew, SOOO Good. I love rice haha. :)
I have been pushing myself it give out 150 B.O.M's before I go home (50 more than what we put as a group) I am at 133 right now so we shall see how it goes. We even went to try to find this one Village apparently in our area but just got stuck in the Bush but luckily we made it back home haha
The Stake Presidency came to Church on Sunday so that was really cool, they were doing interviews for Advancement  to the Melchizedek Priesthood so that was nice.
I was hoping President Amos’ Family (All of them) would come to church one Sunday just one Sunday to feel of the spirit and to just feel how Families can be together forever. Well they have never come (Expect one daughter) so we shall see how my last week goes. I've been asking them so, hopefully they will accept my last request.
Anyways everything else is just small small as you know, but anyways I love you guys so much and I hope you have a great week!
MY LAST FULL WEEK IN GHANA! a little weird, and sad, but hopefully I can do the Lord’s work and push on Love you!
