Transferred Again!


Well another week has come and gone and here we are again!  Well the biggest news from this week was already said but I’ll say again....I’m transferred!  I’m now in an area called KeguĂ©.  And the name of my companion is Elder Mutoke!  Like I said he is from the Congo!  He is one of the nicest guys that I have ever met!  I can feel his love for the other missionaries and the people....he is a great example.  I’m really excited to work with him. I think we will do really well together.  My last week in Be-Kpota was a pretty normal week....just saying goodbye to everyone.  I’m going to miss Be-Kpota. There were a lot of great members there.  I’ve been told that our new branch is awesome!  So I’m excited for that!  All and all things have started out good....I love you and miss you!  I hope you have a great week!

Avec amour,

Difficult Week


It sounds like you have had a pretty crazy week!  This week was a little difficult for me.  So like you know we have been working hard with some of our investigators, especially Olivier, well this week he bailed on us.  We had four appointments set with him and each time he wasn't there!  It was difficult because he is such a great investigator. I hope that we will see him this coming week.

With our other investigators things are going good.  We have one named Johnaton he is awesome!  He is 17 and independent.  We taught him yesterday and he told us that the Book of Mormon is true!  I was so happy....problem with him is that he still won’t come to church.  That is definitely the big problem in this area....no one wants to come to church.

We have also received a lot of contacts this past week.  We are starting to work with the members a lot more and they are helping us.  I really love the members here.  I don’t know this week was pretty lame to say the least.  There isn't much that is new.  Anyway I hope all is well.....I love you and I miss you!

Avec amour,
