Tema, Ghana


Elder Takavingofa

Week 57- 6 more transfers

Hey everyone,

This week was alright. Maddox and I talked a lot before he left. He was over here a lot hanging out too. He left Wednesday morning. It’s weird I'm alone now but a few of these new kids are cool so hopefully I find a few more buddies. Elder Esquejo in my apartment is training but his new companion didn’t come until Saturday so we have been in a trio all week til he came. It was kind of fun but it’s hard to teach with 3 people. We made it work. We found a lot of new people and I think a few of them are serious too so hopefully we get some baptisms to start coming. This area is already so much different then it was when I came. We finally have a teaching pool now so it’s a lot better.

The new guy who came is Elder Kraus and he has been struggling with being here really bad. President called yesterday and told me he was worried about him and that I need to watch out for him. Last night I went and got a drink from a shop with him and then we came and sat on the bench in front of the house. I told him if he ever needed anything I'm here and he can talk to me about anything. He was pretty happy after that and he told me what was going on. I told him nobody can get through a mission without struggling a little bit. It’s not all full of rainbows and clear skies haha! I hope I can help him. I can tell he's thinking about going home but I'm not sure. I’ll get him to stay haha.

Last night we went to Pat and Diana’s in Nungua. They are the girls who used to call us all over and feed us when I was in Adjorman. They were happy to see me. It’s pretty cheep to get there so I think I will go visit more. Today we have just kind of hung out. Williams came and I cut his hair. I've gotten pretty good at it actually haha! I think that fitting steers for stock shows has helped me.

Thats all for the week
Elder Orton
