Elder Tyokolwana finished strong. New companion is Elder Harrigfeld, Elder Hall’s first American companion. Mary and Grace’s baptisms have been pushed back.
These past couple of weeks have been pretty good. Elder Tyokolwana was able to finish his mission pretty strongly! He left me yesterday and is on his way back to South Africa as he has finished his mission. Tomorrow I will be heading to Accra with the other Elders I stay with to the mission home so we can receive our new companions. My companion will be Elder Harrigfeld. He will be my first American companion which will be a bit different but I’m sure it will be good!
The baptism for Mary and Grace has been postponed until next month. We are currently teaching five people who are progressing. We will continue to see them and share the message of peace and happiness that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I have now been in this ward for eight months. I honestly don’t know how much longer I will be here but I’ve enjoyed it! I’m trying to become what my Savior needs me to become. It’s hard. I have a lot to learn but I appreciate all of the people that the Lord has put into my life and I especially appreciate the Atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. Because of Him I can always repent and change. I hope that I will be able to rely on Him and help others do the same.
Doctrine and Covenants 45:3-5
3 Listen to him who is the advocate with the Father, who is pleading your cause before him—
4 Saying: Father, behold the sufferings and death of him who did no sin, in whom thou wast well pleased; behold the blood of thy Son which was shed, the blood of him whom thou gavest that thyself might be glorified;
5 Wherefore, Father, spare these my brethren that believe on my name, that they may come unto me and have everlasting life.
I hope you all have a great week!
