Road Trip

Evans is doing pretty well adjusting to the Tropics.

Sister Stevenson and Evans spent some time on Monday with the Assistants at the market.

Shopping for a fufu pounder.

Just looking.

We held zone conferences Tuesday through Friday.  We were in Assin Foso on Tuesday.

It rained.

The Zone Leaders instructed on a topic of their choice -- The Doctrine of Christ.

This is how we did it in Tennessee.

Sister Love.

The Assin Foso Zone.

Wednesday in Takoradi.

Working with Members.

More Sister Love.

Practicing helping the members share the Gospel.

The Takoradi Zone.

Thursday in Mpintsin Zone.

Helping those we contact become progressing investigators and converted to the Savior.

I didn't realize that many of our missionary companions give a shout before they leave the apartment in the morning.  They join hands and as they raise their hands shout, "The Heart and a Willing Mind!" (D&C 64:34). We have taught them that the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind, but they came up with this on their own.  One nice thing about having Evans with us is that he is sharing some of the culture of his mission with our missionaries, and our missionaries are sharing ours with him. 

The Mpintsin Zone.

Then, on Friday we were with the Tarkwa Zone.

These zone leaders taught Our Purpose as Missionaries.

The Tarkwa Zone.

I had to be in Axim on Sunday and the mission home is undergoing some repairs, so we hung out on Saturday at Busua Beach and introduced Evans to lobster pizza.

He liked it!

Sunday at Axim Branch.


Elder Owens using his head.

And finally,

More sister love from Mankessim.
