Elder and Sister Hanlon are currently our lone senior couple. They are such a blessing to us in the mission. They provide leadership support in the Praso District and have been so cheerfully willing to help anywhere else they are needed. We could use a dozen just like them.
This week, we were saddened to learn of the passing of Sister Raelene Hill, the wife of the mission president in the Accra West Mission. She was always so positive and friendly. She was a great example to us. We will miss her very much. We had been with her just the week before at the Mission President Seminar.
Sister Stevenson, Sister Ziqubu, Sister Thompson and the Hanlons represented our mission at a memorial service for Sister Hill in Accra.
On Tuesday, we welcomed a new missionary from the MTC. His name is Elder Woyesa and he comes from Ethiopia.
His Trainer is Elder Raphael (left).
On Wednesday, we had interviews with the missionaries from the Yamoransa, Abakrampa and Mankessim Districts.
Friday, we brought all of the new missionaries who are in their first transfer and their trainers for some follow-up instruction. I'm not always sure if the meeting makes much of a difference, but I had several of the missionaries thank me and tell me that it helped them resolve to make some changes.
Elder Boamah, one of our former missionaries, was in town visiting family and dropped by after the meeting. He looks good!
In another example of Hanlon handiness, Elder Hanlon discovered that our water dispensers need cleaning from time to time. So, he pulled ours apart and cleaned it ship shape and Bristol fashion.
Luckily, what I didn't know doesn't seem to have hurt us. But I feel better now.
