After a busy travel schedule last week, we appreciated having some home time this past week. It didn’t mean we weren’t busy; we just did most of the work from the Mission Home and Mission Office. We really appreciated the change in pace. On Monday I went and played basketball again with Elder Yancey and Elder Latapu. Elder … Continue reading Vaccines!
Monday morning, I went over to the Mission Office at 7 am and played basketball with Elder Yancey and Elder Lapatu. We played 2 games of HORSE and one game of 21. Let’s just say I lost both games of HORSE – badly. I appreciated that the Elders were soft on me for the game of 21. It was … Continue reading End to End
As mentioned last week, we have changed the schedule of the mission so that means we needed to hold Zone Conferences within 3 weeks of each other instead of every 6 weeks. This week we did 3: University/Konongo on Tuesday; Dichemso/Suame on Wednesday and Asuoyeboa/Obuasi/Bantama on Thursday. This week we will drive to Sunyani, Techiman and then to … Continue reading Zone Conference 2.0

There were quite a few of them there engaged in an activity of football, exercise, photography and probably a few other things. It was a holiday here in Ghana so they … Continue reading Andy

Our journey to Kumasi began on September 22, 2020 when we received a call from Elder Soares secretary explaining that Elder Soares wanted to speak with us on Zoom. The next day, we spent about 30 minutes with him. He asked us a lot of questions about our children, parents, home, health and finances. He only told us that … Continue reading Journey to Kumasi
We have been thinking about how we might end this very last post of our Sierra Leone Freetown Mission experience. There is no easy way to say goodbye and there is certainly no easy way to express a small portion of what this experience has meant for us. We have learned much about ourselves, each … Continue reading God Be With You
There is a circle of life in the human family. We are born as babies and then grow old (hopefully) before leaving mortality. When a new baby is born, an old person dies. The winter turns to spring and the summer to fall. Flowers blossom and wither away. Wheat is planted, cultivated and harvested. A … Continue reading The Circle of Life
During the month of December, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints celebrates the birth of the Savior by encouraging people everywhere to "Light the World" with goodness. If you haven't seen the new nativity video put out by the church, it is, in our opinion a "must watch". Historically accurate and beautifully filmed, … Continue reading Light the World
