Transfers Within Transfers (Again)

On Monday, we welcomed Elder Nsenga to the Ghana Cape Coast Mission.  He spent a week in the Accra Mission while he waited for a permanent reassignment due to visa delays.  He is from the DRC and already his English is very good.  We are grateful to have him join us.

We visited and interviewed all of the missionaries in the Takoradi, Tanokrom, Cape Coast, Nkanfoa, Praso and Dunkwa-on-Offin districts (54 missionaries).  



Joined the zone leaders serving in the Takoradi Stake for our monthly meeting with the stake president.

In Ntranoa for a baptismal interview.

Invited our neighbors up the hill to help us finish off the leftovers -- late dinner after proselyting.

In Abura for a baptismal interview.

In Mankessim for a baptismal interview (during a branch activity).

We held the "Finish Strong" seminar for the October 2015 group.

Their group goals for the remaining 11 weeks of their missions:  Baptisms - 54; Hours Proselyting 7,800, Lessons with Members Present 900;  Lessons to Recent Converts and Less-Active Members 900, Referrals Contacted 300.  That is a lot of good work.

Signing the "I will finish strong!" shirt.

I left at 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning to make the four hour drive to Dunkwa-on-Offin. It is a beautiful, bumpy ride.

I had a baptismal interview to do, so since I was going to spend eight hours on the road, I decided I should bundle some other activities together (even though the worth of one soul is great).  I spoke in Sacrament Meeting, did temple recommend interviews and trained the branch council.  It was a nice 14 hour day.  It's all good work.

Sister Stevenson held down the fort in Cape Coast.  She taught the most reverent Primary in Ghana.

  1. This is an awesome strategy of updating me as a parent on what is going on out there at where my son is serving. I am grateful for this site and looking forward for more news. Thanks very much and God Bless President and Sister Stevenson and your mission for the awesome job. Well done
