Week 5 in Akim Oda!
So this week was pretty chill, but by chill I mean really hot! Last Monday, after I was done emailing, the AP's (Assistants to the Mission President) called about our 21 referrals contacted. They talked to Elder Bloomfield and then wanted to talk to me. They said I was the perfect example of a junior companion. I have no clue what that means. Is it good or bad? Haha . (I told him that he was supportive and hard-working and that it WAS good)
Me and Elder Hunt went on an exchange together this week. That was pretty fun. It's good to figure out how other people teach. A wise 14 year old told me this week: "I will beat you, you never forget." I fit 5 kids in my lap this week which just shows you how tiny the kids are here in Ghana. (He tried to send a picture. It wouldn't resize to fit---maybe next week)
President Snow (his interim mission president until July) has already made some changes to the mission:
1. If you don't send him a weekly letter you don't get subsistence
2. All the missionaries don't meet up at transfers anymore. You just go right to your new area.
3. Book of Mormon devotionals (not sure what these are yet) are within companionships now which is odd.
blessing this week but it was awkward because we can't give one until they directly ask us for one. All they said was please pray for me.was the first time I put on sunscreen this week. I'm still not getting sunburned. I gave a
Me and my companion decided that they need to make a white handbook just for African missionaries because the mission president has like a bunch of things that he needs to alter. We read in the white handbook that we aren't allowed to proselyte near church buildings. Akim Oda is like a Utah of other churches so I guess we cant proselyte haha jk.
I have noticed this week that i definitey have the power to calm small kids down that are upset and maybe crying, All I have to do is walk up to them and say 'tobo' and they stop instantly. I found a place where I can buy Redbull here in Oda so on Mondays I treat myself to one haha.
Great email this week! Grateful for wonderful people who take care of my missionary when he's hungry! Keep the emails coming! He appreciates them.
