Surf n Turf

We have had a nice blend this week of spending time with our daughter, Janee' (surf) and missionary work (turf).

On Monday, we went to the slave castle at Cape Coast.  We have driven by it a million times, but waited to take the tour until we had someone from home to show it to.

It was difficult to be reminded of how cruel we can be.  I am grateful that our work here brings so much joy.

Sister Stevenson and Janee' went material shopping and had lunch with Theresa.

This was one of the dresses that she had made for her.

On Wednesday, we had zone conference in Axim for the Tarkwa Zone.  We went up on Tuesday and stayed at the Axim Beach Resort.

The Tarkwa Zone Conference:

This was our last zone conference of the quarter.

The missionaries had to practice their planning without tables to work at, but they managed.

I had to be in Tarkwa on Thursday for a baptism interview...

 ...and in Sofokrom on Friday for another interview, we stayed overnight at the Busua Beach Resort near Agona Nkwanta.

We left some footprints.

Friday, we held the orientation meeting for the new trainers who have been called for the transfer next week.

The Trainers

Sister Monyei was in Cape Coast for a medical check-up and joined us for the training before returning to her area with the group. 

After the training, I had another baptismal interview to do in Abura.  The baptism was being held later that evening, so we joined them.

This family was very excited -- so were the missionaries and the bishop.

Moral Support.

I spent Saturday afternoon and evening with the missionaries in Bakano  We had a productive day.

And we were treated to a very nice dinner of rice, fish and groundnut soup by a sweet couple we were teaching. 

We got up very early on Sunday and drove to Dunkwa-on-Offin.  We left at 5 a.m. and picked up President Johnson, the District President, on the way.  

For Elder Bakula's mother.

Because we were on the road all day Sunday, we celebrated Father's Day on Saturday.

Shopping at Charity's shop.
