Family and Friends,Akwaabo! Good morning this beautiful spring day! Today was the first time I have felt rain in months, and it was only a tiny drizzle this morning. But nevertheless, it was much needed! It also sounds like a beautiful time at home as well with the weather warming up. I was glad to hear from everybody today and know that every one had successful weeks. I also received quite a few pictures today, so thank you all for that!
1. How long did it take for you to get the corn rows put in and how long did you leave them in?
It took Rita about 10 minutes to do it, and honestly I was downright impressed! I did it at my last appointment last Sunday, and I took them out later that night. All the other Elders loved it.
2. If you have any down time, what is your favorite thing to do?
This sounds strange, especially for those who lived with me back home, but I love studying. I love reading from the scriptures, general conference talks, Liahona's, and the institute manuals. If I have any free time, I usually spend it studying (until the other Elders come and tempt me to play a card game or something...)
3. About how many investigators have been coming to Church meetings lately?
In the New Georgia branch, we struggle a little bit with getting investigators to church. Overall we usually have 12 to 15 for the whole branch, but that's nothing compared to the other branches. We're working hard to find a solution for it!
4. How is your Branch President doing? I was happy to hear that he was improving.
He is doing great! He can now walk and talk and his own, but I don't know if he's ever going to regain the same strength that he had before. I pray that he can resume his Branch President office, because he is a great leader that Liberia needs.
5. How often do you get to meet with President Carlson?
We have personal interviews with him every other transfer, but I see him about once a month when I go in for MLC!
Sorry, I'm running out of time for today, but I want to thank you all again for the emails and support that you gave to me this week. I hope that you all stay safe and that I can hear from every one again soon! I love you all.
