Dec 7-12

Well it hasn't been too long since you last heard from me. Things have changed though. Wednesday was voting day here in Ghana. Elections are now over and a president has been chosen. John Dramani Mahama, the current president, has lost. The new president of Ghana will be Nana Akufo Addo. Elections happened peacefully, or at least they've been peaceful so far. They announced the new president Friday evening. We weren't allowed to proselyte on Thursday. Things were a bit tense the day after voting and the mission president decided it was in our best interest to stay indoors. So to make use of our time, all missionaries weekly planned and then deep cleaned their apartments. We spent 8 hours cleaning ours but now it's spotless. As far as teaching and our investigators go, we didn't have much luck this week. We are in a tough spot right now. No one we are teaching wants to see us. They never seem happy when we come and it's tough. We are working to remedy that though. We thought we would have a good turnout at church on Sunday but we didn't. It started pouring rain around 8:00. The rain stopped around 9:00 but by then the damage had been done. None of our investigators came. In fact, we had so few people in our gospel principles class that it got combined with the Sunday school. My apologizes if this email gives off sort of a negative vibe. I didn't mean to send that message. I want you to know that I love this work, I love these people, and I love this gospel and my savior Jesus Christ. Hope you all have a wonderful week.
