Ruth reads the Book of Mormon

Hello everyone 
This week has been very good. Did I tell you guys about Ruth? Well if not she is an 18 year old girl that is going to a school close by our church. One day we were contacting  around their school and she called us over, she told us to come back later that week. Well, any way we have now seen her about 4 or 5 times. She has come to church twice, and she has introduced us to her Dad who is a baptist pastor. She is a powerful girl. She understands what we are teaching her and she reads the Book of Mormon. We are trying to give her a baptismal date but we don't know how her dad will react. I just wish all people that we taught were like Ruth, smart and actually reads the Book of Mormon. Ruth has also introduced us to 4 of her friends, and asked how she can become a missionary... wow!

So here in Ghana some people  (Pentecostals) think that they can speak in tongues. And when we say tongues, it is not like how we believe, like a missionary learning a new tongues. They believe that speaking in tongues means speaking Gibberish.  They also like praying very loud! Anyway, we were teaching this Pentecostal lady and here family and while we were teaching her she asked if we believed in speaking in tongues. I tried to explain it to her but she did not understand. So, we just continued teaching her and at the end of the lesson we asked her if she would give the closing prayer. It was the COOLEST prayer I have ever heard!!!  No it was not a spiritual prayer, but the way she prayed was so funny. She was almost yelling. I don't even remember what she was saying, but I almost started laughing it was THE BEST.

HMMM well I cant think of any thing else to write about but there you go! 

Love you all
