We were joined this week by Elder and Sister Edward Dube. Elder Dube is a member of the Seventy and is a counselor in the Area Presidency for the Africa West Area. He and Sister Dube were assigned to come and visit our mission. We met with all of the missionaries over a three day period and participated in a leadership meeting for the Cape Coast Stake on Tuesday evening and a fireside with the Takoradi Stake on Wednesday evening. We enjoyed our time with them very much.
Elder and Sister Dube left us on Thursday afternoon following the last combined zone conference. On Thursday evening and Friday I was able to do baptismal interviews in Mankessim, Cape Coast and Greenhill. All very nice people.
Sister Stevenson drove in to Cape with me on Friday and while I was doing a baptismal interview, she bought some grilled Talapia from our fish lady. Then we went home and ate and played Rummikub.
Sister Stevenson won.
Saturday and Sunday we had the Assin Foso Stake Conference. Elder Yirenya-Tawiah was the presiding authority and he invited Sister Stevenson and I to participate. On Saturday, there were separate leadership meetings for the men and women -- I instructed for the men and Sister Stevenson instructed for the women. I was also invited to speak at the evening adult session. On Sunday, we were both asked to speak in the general session. It was good to see the Assin Foso Zone again.
On Saturday, Evans called and said his mission assignment had arrived. We Skyped in while he opened the letter from the First Presidency.
He has been called to serve in the Tennessee Nashville Mission. It is about half Tennessee, half Kentucky and a smidge of Illinois. We are all very excited. He really wanted an English speaking mission and this is just north of where his cousin Jed has been serving since September 2013.
He begins his service June 3rd, which means that he will complete his mission a few weeks before we will. We are hoping that he will come home to us here in Ghana and finish with us and we will all go home together.
Whatever bit this missionary.
It was a no-see-um in the night.
Probably not this guy...
