WHAT A BIRTHDAY!
well i cant believe im 19.... in Ghana im still considered a small boy so i love it!! well i had a great birthday for sure!! mom and dad send me some dehydrated green beans and gravy so lets just say my first bite i was almost in tears it was sooo good hahahahh and that night we bought some pizza in town! and of course as a ghanaian tradition... i was soaked with water after we finished eating hahah
Elder Mease is the name of my new greenie companion!! (my son) hes such a cool guy from Utah! we are gonna enjoy! hes got lots a spirit and a great testimony! and for ONCE! i have a guy that gets more emotional then me hahah lots in common so we are gonna make the most of these next few weeks and lots from each other!! guy is also halarious, never laughed this much in just 5 days.when i first came i thought i was hard to hear the ghanaians speak. but elder mease is having a hard time hearing ME talk!! hahah says my accent is too hard for him to understand my english!! hahahahah WHAT THE HECK!! MY ENGLISH IS TRASH!! hahahah
Well sarah was baptised by her husband brother victor!! has he pulled her out of the water and gave her the biggest hug and kiss. my eyes were filled with the love of christ and the love that brother victor has for his wife. over 1 year of him trying to help her become a member! ive never seen a man sooo happy to know 1 year from now he can go get sealed with his family in the Ghana, Accra temple!! the baptism has really shown me how that familys truely can be together forever! and because of the faithfullness and love that brother victor has for his family, after all this time and his dilligence, his wife is a member of Jesus Christ church. miracles in the making brothers and sisters!!
