This week was great! The highlight of the week was being able to go back to the Klagon area for a couple hours. We were dropping off some supplies and paying some bills for the Elders living in Klagon and I remembered that one of my recent converts just had their baby girl about a 3 weeks ago. I'm not sure if you remember but the parents names are Bless [husband] and Gifty [wife]. I baptized Bless the second week of August and then Gifty was Baptized a week or two after I left for the office. They might have been my favorite converts that I had in Klagon since I was able to teach both of them and watch them progress together while she was pregnant. They had been together for a couple years and both had to have some special interviews by a member of the mission presidency before they were baptized. They really became strong in the church fast. Some of my favorite lessons I've had on mission were with both of them.
When we went over Bless was actually working so I wasn't able to see him but Gifty was there with her baby girl Selikem. I know its a really strange name but I guess it was one of their grandparents. I took some pictures which are attached. I had a real testimony builder as Gifty started thanking me for teaching her and Bless and how now they are all able to live for eternity once they can go to the temple. I felt such a greater love for what I was doing out here, and even if I am stuck here in the office [Tanner is an office Elder] I help all the missionaries and make their job easier so they really only have to work on missionary work and waste less time on other things. It was a real gift that God granted me that day, and I'll be forever grateful!
Unfortunately, it rained really REALLY hard this week and the roof on the mission home still isn't finished so it flooded it again. Luckily this time we had most of the things in plastic bins with lids but there were still a lot of boxes in there that got ruined. We spent the entire day moping out the entire house so that it wouldn't be a cess pool. It already smelt like mildew in there but we put a lot of hours reorganizing everything. We were lucky enough to have the rest of my district come and help as well and President awarded us by paying for our lunch that day.
There's my quick update on how my week was! Thanks for all your prayers, love, and support!
