T.I.A - This Is Africa!!!!
I will be going to Liberia on Wednesday. There are 4 or 5 of us going to Liberia and 4 or 5 of us going to Sierra Leone. Two of the missionaries here are from Sierra Leone.
He is really there!
With Elder Gherkins
The Lord's prison. Every building either has this or barbed wire on top of the fence or wall
These are typical of what the buildings look like.
That's called 'hawking,' everyone walks in the middle of the road and comes up to the cars and tries to sell you stuff, a little scary at first, now it's just funny.
This is a 10 year old boy from Ghana that shows up when they play football (yes, he said they were playing "football").I didn't do well at soccer... I played once, the heat is way too hot to play soccer, so I just sit with Elder Losee from Utah
FRENCH FRIES!!! with no salt
I haven't had to do my own laundry just yet. They take good care of us here, but some of the africans still wash their stuff by hand. it's crazy.
Me and my comp Elder Gyuwe-Appiah
He joined the church when he was 12, he is 20 now and will be going to Sierra Leone on Wednesday.
The Ghana Temple
I got back from the temple about an hour ago. 13 of us were already endowed. I got to go in two sessions. I was an escort for one of them. it was beautiful, tiny but beautiful! Since most of the Africans were not endowed the american companions were the escorts, it was cool. I was an escort for |Elder Smart from Sierra Leone, not my companion, since he was already endowed. It was awesome. I was in the celestrial room for like 30 minutes. The smiles on these kids are amazing.
We have 23 missionaries here, 3 are sisters. We are actually the smallest group to be in the MTC. The most they have had here is in the 90's.
