Two Baptisms This Week
Our zone is doing alright! There’s some responsibilities to be taken care of and it’s not easy, but I’m learning and trying to improve in leadership. This past week we did travel to Kumasi, and we’ll do it again this week. I’m getting sick of that bumpy, pothole-filled road. I try to sleep the whole way but I always get motion sick. We have a total of 5 Americans in the zone. There are 4 Ghanaians, 1 from Nigeria, 1 from Zambia, and 1 from Zimbabwe. I love how diverse this mission is, I get to meet people from all over Africa: Liberia to Malowie, South Africa to Kenya, and then to D.R. Congo. I get to meet them all.
Another thing that happened just today is that we had an activity where we got the whole Zone of Obuasi together and we contributed some money, bought a live goat, which we killed, butchered, cooked, and ate all by ourselves right outside a missionary apartment (with the help of some neighbors) As we ate we enjoyed rice ball with groundnut soup and a movie. The Princess Bride! Been a long time since I’ve really seen any movies, and don’t worry, mom. Mission President approved everything before we did it even it is his copy of the Princess Bride. Here are some photos of the goat. Man, I sure did love that goat until we had to dress him.
It is seriously such a blessing to be here in Ghana and I love every second of it. I’m learning lots and growing as an individual disciple of Jesus Christ. I love missionary work so much.
