Subject: Pleading Your Cause Before Him

Hello everyone!

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!

We saw a post on Facebook with the photos in this post. The Facebook post said:

Today we attend the District Meeting. As some of you know, this is the rainy season in Ghana and when it rains, it pours! Just a few blocks from our meeting place, we went through a mud puddle that was deeper than anticipated. Even our trusted 4 wheel drive truck could not get out of the muck! Elder Hall and Elder James watched as some locals dug us out and then they jumped on the back bumper to help with traction. (Sorry about the mud on your pants and shoes!) Success – only fifteen minutes late to the meeting. Sorry, about no pictures of the mess, but we were too busy trying to get rescued!!

I will post a few pictures of the crazy intersection near the market, a few miles from the chapel, as well as our district meeting. Elder Tyokolwana will be departing from the mission 20 June, so he bore his testimony and talked about repentance.
