The Storm.....

Kwasi showing Elder Entsie and Elder Goodrich around the area

April 24- May 8

I apologize for not sending an email last week. Not much happened last week though. We found a few new investigators and continued working with those we have right now. Everything was just kind of normal. 

This week was pretty sweet though. We have been working with an old woman named Peace for a while now. Her daughter is a member and she has been coming to church for a while. Well when Peace comes, she brings her 2 grandsons. These two boys, Sheriff and Francis, have also decided as of yesterday that they would like to be baptized as well. We are going to baptize them all together this coming Saturday. We couldn't be happier for them. Peace's daughter has also started to learn with us. Hopefully she'll want to be baptized soon as well. Another member of the ward, Emmanuel, has a mother who desires to get baptized as well. Gladys, Emmanuels mom, will probably be baptized in 3 or 4 weeks. She's hard to meet with but we will find a way to get around that I'm sure. The others that we are really working with right now are Nana and Gabriel. In other news, yesterday we got hit by an absolutely massive storm. It didn't last long but it was a monster in the sheer volume of water that it brought. While we were in elders quorum we watched the storm down multiple power lines causing the power to go out all around our area. Apparently it wasn't just us either, all of southern Ghana took a big hit. We came home from church to find half an inch of water in our bedroom. Elder Entsie and I spent a good amount of time rescuing all of our items, clearing our room out entirely, and then mopping up all the water. Oh and mopping water was extremely difficult because our mop was outside drying when the storm hit. It was a brutal day. It was a good welcome to the rainy season, a little late but goo nonetheless. Not much else really going on besides that though. Hope you all have a nice week.
