Ha, i miss farewells, i wish that i could have been there.. mostly because of all the sweet food that is there :) i, much like brandy really really like food, so i miss normal food alot, but oh well ill get over it. even without all of that good food i am still somehow finding a way to become fat... well not really fat but im bigger. maybe im growing and i just think im getting fat! ya well go with that, i think im growing (probably not)
Im glad that cookie enjoyed the farwell! im still hoping that by some chance she will be alive when i get home because i don't want her to die... i didn't tell you guys this when i left but she was the only person that i almost cried when i was saying goodbye. i don't know i guess i have a thing for dogs. Especially golden retrievers! or whatever cookie is.
I need like 9 two cent stamps, so if you could send those that would be just peachy!
So this week actually quite alot happened. because as you know last week was transfers, and guess what i got transfered to the Ivory Coast! ha just kidding im still in my same area and i still have the same companion which is totally sweet and im fine with that. Elder Lehr and Harris both got transfered to Assin Fosu, and some new people came into our district. I was actually called to be District Leader which is kinda weird i still feel like a small guy that doesnt know anything lol. but ya, im actually really nervous to do a baptismal interview, but im sure once i do it it will be fine..hopefully!
Ha we are continuing to teach Rebecca in the crazy market, and she is way sweet! ha she now has come to church two times in a row and her husband said that she even wants to be baptized! were totally stoked about that because it would fulfill our family goal that we have been given! We're also working with some less actives that are part members families too but they so far havent seen much progressing. There is only six weeks left to complete the goal and right now our district is struggling so we really need to buckle down and do this thing!
I have plenty of time to write you guys so don't even worry about it! Mario teaches typing has done wonders for me. Sorry if my emails have been short lately but its just cuz not much new is happening, but ill try to keep the emails interesting and maybe spice them up a bit with false stories like how me and my companion got chased by a lion through the african jungle! ha
