Week 47-Art week


Well this week was alright. We went to the art market Monday and I bought some cool stuff. I’ll send pictures.

We had zone conference on Tuesday and it was pretty good. I met a new guy from Colorado who is a tough ol country boy. We talked for a while then at lunch talked again. He is in Hohoe which is deep in the bush. I have been talking to him at nights sometimes so he doesn't die out there haha! The rest of the week we just went out and taught some people.

Friday I was running marathons so we had to stay in because I couldn't go 5 feet from the toilet. I’m pretty sure eating at the chop bar is what made me sick. It’s over though. Thank goodness!

Sunday we had a baptism for Rebecca finally. It went really good and she was pretty happy. We also talked to the girl who referred James to us and asked if she had talked to him about the issue he is having with his father. She laughed and said, “yes, I told him to go pack his things and come get baptized because he knows it’s true.” I don't know why I just thought it was kinda funny the way she said it haha! This morning we went to Aburi to the art market there. I got some more stuff next week I’ll send the pics of what I bought. That’s all for this week.

Love you all,
Elder Orton
