Happy Christmas in Ghana!
I was so happy to be able to talk to my family this Christmas! I made a couple people cry and I feel bad, but I’m sure they were tears of joy. In all honesty, this Christmas was one of the best, if not the best I’ve ever had. The gifts I received had so much thought in them and the kind words that came with them were just as great. I received a bunch of paper snow flakes from home and I even made it snow in my apartment room Christmas morning! What great fun!
… & Polygamy in Ghana!
Little disclaimer: Polygamy is legal in Ghana, but not allowed in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
My companion and I went to visit a member who hadn’t been coming to church for a couple Sundays because he wasn’t feeling well. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this man at one point had 7 wives. He was taught the Gospel and divorced 6 so that he could be baptized. But before that, he had children with all 7 wives. Now this man, is not a small-family type. He is the father of 64 children.
All in all, this Christmas was fantastic. I got to talk to lots of people that I love and it was truly wonderful.
Now to get back to the work!
