Branch Olympics

Hello Everyone! 

How is everything this week? For me this week has been long, but also very good! This week we traveled to Kumasi to have a zone conference. We were instructed on how to hold our weekly planning every week. It was really good because weekly planning has never really been instructed on, it is usually left up to the traditions of the missionaries. So, it was good to have everything set straight.  On Friday and Saturday we had our Branch Olympics. We had each branch in Sunyani compete against each other in different types of games. It was so funny because Ghanians are so competitive. Lets just say there was a lot of yelling! 

So not much has happened here teaching wise. Even the kid that has a baptismal date can't be baptized because he is not coming to church so we are kind of bummed about that but we are still teaching him. Because of these olympic games, we had members invite their friends. After the games on Saturday we had a meeting with all the non members that came to play and introduced them to the missionaries in their area so it was good! Because of that we got 4 referrals and we taught one of them the other day and he excepted to be baptized when he prayed about it. That was the first time I have invited someone to be baptized in the first lesson. Its usually in the 2 or 3 lesson that we invite them. Iam happy this week because we are finding prepared people to teach. Well, I think that is about everything that has happened this week sorry this letter is short but I am running out of time to email 

oh happy 2013     the Myans were wrong!

love you all so much 
from ghana with love
