By the Sea

One of the reasons we love the Cape Coast Mission is because we get to see the ocean almost every day.  

This was the week I had planned to go on a 24 hour area visit and spend a day with one of the missionary companionships, but we ended up with several missionaries with investigators who needed to meet with the mission president before their baptism (a good thing), so I went on road trips on Tuesday and Thursday to Mankessim, Praso, Nyanasi, Telecom Hill and Breku.  I didn't take pictures of everyone, but I got a few.

Elder Bobobi and Elder Wightman teaching in the lumber yard.  You can only do this when the power is off.

We also held the follow-up meeting for new missionaries and their trainers.

 The new missionaries in this group came in January and are half-way through their twelve week training period.

We spent the weekend at Busua Beach with the Hanlons for our annual Senior Missionary Couple Retreat.  I'm not much of a cruse director, so it ended up being pretty quiet.  They said they like it that way.

It rained!  We were so happy.

Just for comparison, this was the group we had last February for our Senior Missionary Couple Retreat.  

If this trend continues, it may just be me and Sister Stevenson next year.  We have loved working with each of these fabulous couples and we especially appreciate the willing hearts of Elder and Sister Hanlon.  In addition to their member / leader support in the Praso area, they have stepped in so wonderfully when the health of a missionary meant the needs of the one outweighed the needs of the many.  Their service has allowed Sister Stevenson and I to continue to minister to all of the missionaries.   They are awesome.  

And Sister Hanlon makes a mean pancake.

On Sunday, we attended the Agona Nkwanta Branch.  

The Primary Children

The Missionaries.

The Cute Baby.

Zone Conferences start on Tuesday.  We are excited to get out and see all the missionaries again.
