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! :)
Elder Harward

  1. I just found your blog - my son leaves for Cape Coast on September 7. Would you ever consider communicating with him so that he has a better idea of what to expect upon his arrival in Ghana? He was born and raised in China (we are American) so he isn't too worried about culture shock or anything like that. He would simply love to communicate with someone with your recent experience. If you wouldn't mind, we would love to hear from you.....Edison Butters is his name. Thank you and congratulations on a mission well served.
