We received a referral 2 Sunday's ago from a member in another ward, and his friend is what we call a Golden Investigator. Her name is Abigail and she is in her mid 20's. She is very successful for how young she is and is normally busy during the week so we can never see her except after church on Sundays. We had a great first lesson with her where she said she normally doesn't go to church, because she doesn't like how she feels when she goes to other churches. It wasn't until she came to our church and went to relief society class when the relief society president was giving announcements. She was so impressed that the church cares so much for the women that they have a separate class where they can learn specifically for them. Normally its the men who always teach and the men who ask all the questions here so she was really excited about relief society. We gave her a baptism date after our first lesson for the 13th of August. I was worried that she wouldn't be able to make the date because we wouldn't be able to teach her everything since we can only meet on Sundays. This last week she came and told us she has read all of the missionary pamphlets and knows all of the commandments that she is expected to keep and has agreed to keep all of them. I was shocked! No one reads the books we give them haha. She is really smart and we're super excited for her baptism Day.
Yesterday after church I got a call from President Heid and he told me that I will be transferred next Tuesday to Tema. I'm already in Tema zone, but I'm now going straight to the Area Tema. I will be replacing Elder Harris who is going to leave to become AP and my new companion is Elder Fall. I already told you about Elder Fall I believe. He is from Burkino Faso and is the only missionary in the world from that country. There is no branch, district, or stake in Burkino Faso, so when he goes home he will be a pilgrim for the church there. He joined the church while he was going to school in Togo. He was a Muslim before he joined the church and his parents were not happy at all about his conversion to Christianity. He'll be going home in 3 months so I'm really excited to learn more from him. I'm really sad I'll be leaving Batsonaa and I won't be able to finish Elder Siafa's training, but I'm striving to be a "Yes President" missionary. Some upsides is that my new apartment has A/C so That'll be nice:)
I'm doing fine and I'm grateful for all of your guy's prayers! I'll keep you all in my prayers and can't wait for when we'll be able to all see each other again!
