Good Afternoon Friends and Family,
First off congrats to Bingham on takin State!
Well, this week was long but good! The whole week i was looking forward to Thanksgiving!
We have a dude who we were teaching and he is from Nigeria and a lot of them who stay in Ghana go back for Christmas so that sucks. On the good note, umm we have a lot of investigators who are progressing, it has been a long time since we have had a baptism in my area and our bishop would really like us to get some soon. He's an awesome guy! Also there is a new man we met whose name is Emmanuel and he has met with missionaries before but never got to finish the lessons with them so we went and started to teach him and he is a awesome guy as well! Also our brother Micheal, he is leaving for Saudi Arabia on like the 8th of December but we told him when he gets home he needs to get baptized and do some awesome work! He promised us he would! He would be an amazing convert if we were able to baptize him. It's ok though. In our area and how it is through out all of Ghana is a lot of contacting from like either people just on the street and people at there houses and from member referrals every once in a while. This week though we have been going around to all of our members and sharing the video of #lighttheworld to them and about giving service this Christmas Season. Honestly not having snow or cold doesn't even feel like it's getting to be Christmas but it is still of course.
As for my Dad's question about a cleaning/cooking/washing lady, we have a lady to wash our clothes every week for like 8 cedis but i haven't really thought about a cook lady. Not a lot of members live by us so that is hard. I will look into that this week and see.
The sun is getting hotter this time of year and the dust from the roads is very thick and it sometimes can be hard to see even walking down the roads. We had a broadcast from Elder Stevenson 2 Sundays ago and it was really good to see and hear from him about missionary work and how Africa is rapidly growing in the world today with the Gospel and how important this work is! My testimony for the month of December is that the message of light the world has been given us from not just the First Presidency but from Jesus Christ about what we need to really look at this time of year. Show our Light of Christ that we all have with someone this Christmas season. I love you people so much.
He received his size 14 shoes that I sent in the mail this week. YAHOO! In this picture he is at a multi-zone conference and met up with his MTC companion Elder Hill and Elder Jones from the MTC. I received this note from Sister Munro, the mission office sister, "When Elder Paulson emails you - make sure he tells you what a FAAAAANTASTIC job he did leading the recitations at the commencement of the conference!!!!!!! He truly set a positive tone for the whole meeting!!!!!! 😄😄😄😄😄
