During transfer week, we always have fufu for the missionaries who are completing their service. I'm getting better at it.
I did a pretty good job of picking the bones. My transformation will be complete when I eat the bones.
We had a successful transfer week. It is always such a busy, emotional time.
Elder Adams and Elder Kalanga were able to return to Mankessim after a month in the office. Elder Adams had an emergency appendectomy. Can you see why my hair is thinning and turning white? They were very pleased to get back to their area and the people they love.
Our new missionaries.
We feed them...
Dinner -- (not chicken and rice)... That is a home-made pizza.
We teach them the "game plan."
Let them try some Twi.
And off they go.
Elder Aikins from our Agona Branch.
Elder Stulce is the new Assistant, replacing Elder Mocke, who is returning home to South Africa.
Soon after we send out the new missionaries, the returning missionaries begin to roll in.
Making luggage weight is always an adventure...
Elder Griffin is in the office training as the Finance Secretary.
Elder Tyson ironed his shirt the night before -- impressive.
On time for breakfast -- 6 a.m.
Very fine missionaries. We will miss them.
Double date night.
On Sunday, I drove out to Tarkwa at 4 a.m. with William Acquah, our Mission Clerk, to do a baptismal interview and to continue the administrative process of establishing the new branch.
The interview was sweet. Both branches in Tarkwa are doing great. It was a nice (long) day.

These little antelope are so cute. I would love to see one alive sometime.
