Elder Cottam

Week 20

Hi all,
This week we weren't able to see Josephine. She wasn't there for some reason. We contacted a less active named Bismarck. I was on exchange with Elder Oldroyd from Fountain Green. He wanted to knock on his gate so we did. When he answered he smiled and said, “akwabba elders!” Which means welcome haha. We looked at each other like “what the heck is this.” We talked to him but he couldn't meet so we went back Thursday. When we went back he told us he moved here a couple years ago and couldn't find the church and the guy he was staying with wouldn't have allowed him to leave the house to attend church for some reason. He said he wanted to serve a mission but he's too old now. We asked him how old he was and he said 22. We told him he could still go and his face lit up and he got really excited! Hopefully we’ll be working with him and get him going on a misison! We’ll meet with him on this coming Thursday again. He can only meet on Thursdays because of his work.

We have also had Elder Oldroyd and Elder Alumande from Teshie 3 staying with us because there sewer is backed up. We have been having a-lot of fun together! Oldroyd is from Fountain Green so we get along good. His family raises sheep so we talk about farming and stuff til like midnight every night haha. It’s gonna be sad when they move back to their apartment.

I don’t really have anything else to say. It wasn't a very eventful week.
love you all,
Elder Orton

Pictures this week are of the four of us, my companion and I and Oldroyd and his companion, eating pizza at the mall one night.
