Well this week had to have been one of the best weeks working wise ever on my mission! We started out on fire Tuesday and it didn't cool down all week!
On Tuesday we went to an appointment with a new investigator named Alex. He is pretty awesome! He reads the Book of Mormon and is doing really well. He has to work on Sundays sometimes so we are hoping that he will come to church this next week. We are also starting to teach the sibling of some members and that’s going well. We are still always searching for new investigators. I’m thankful for the people that we have.
So Oscar has had his baptismal date fixed but he is still having a problem coming to church. Hopefully he will start coming. But all and all things are good.
SO the update on Ebola for us. It is rumored to have arrived in Benin but we have no confirmation. Here in Togo things are good. We are safe here. If anything happens we will be informed. All is well! Thank you for your love and support!

I have been extremely worried about the Ebola outbreak, in fact the first thought that went through my mind when he got his call was that he was going to Africa where the Ebola virus is (I guess I should have never read The Hot Zone. Anyway this was his comment to me:
"So don't worry about Ebola haha we are well protected! It's pretty scary I'm not going to lie. If it comes here one of two things will happen. 1. I could come home early, because I'm so close to being done. 2. Finish my mission somewhere else."
