Elder Hall is now in the mission field. Ghanaians speak English and his is an English speaking mission. Most folks also speak tribal languages the most common of which is Twi, pronounced Chwee. So Elder Hall took a Twi dictionary with him. His first assignment is in the only area in the mission with a majority Ga people. They speak Ga and English, not Twi. That is kind of funny.
Elder Hall’s email:
I’m finally in the mission field now in the southwest corner of my mission in a place called Jamestown which is the city and it’s very poor but I’m getting used to it. I’m staying in Osu which is a 45 minute walk away and we bike to Jamestown to teach our members and investigators. I have a Twi dictionary but Jamestown is the only area in the mission that speaks Ga i don’t use Twi. The people are so friendly here, it’s great. My companion is Elder Ndala from the DR Congo so he speaks french natively but speaks English as well. We teach a lot of people as most people are very open about hearing about Jesus Christ. Church this week was similar but different as we aren’t in a typical chapel but it’s okay.
1 Nephi 1:20 ..But behold, I, Nephi, will show unto you that the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.
I appreciate you all,
