4th of July

Hello everyone . . . your favorite missionary is here!

So . . . how did this week go? Well, we didn't get robbed!

Anyway, as you all know, the mission split.  YAY!  We all got to meet President and Sister Hill.  They are awesome!  President Hill is an amazing man.  We all got to meet him on Friday and he has some major plans for the new mission, especially when it comes to reactivating (didn't I mention something about that last week?).  When he met with us he asked us to write something we wanted to continue from the old mission and something we wanted to start that wasn't in the old mission.  Not surprisingly almost everyone put the same thing . . . continue P-day rules and start was higher sub.

As you all know, this week was the 4th of July.  Well, how do Ghanians celebrate it?  They don't!! How do Americans in Ghana celebrate it.  We go eat American food!  Elder Anderson and I went to an American restaurant and ate pizza and cheeseburgers (that's right, cheeseburgers) and fries.  Boy it was super good.  I would have sent pictures, but as you heard last week, I am one camera short.  It is hard to find cameras here, but I know a place and I just have to go there hopefully next P-day.

The coolest thing happened after that.  As we are walking and talking we pass this old abandoned building and this guy who is standing next to the building calls us over.  He said that he had just finished praying to know the truth.  When he finished something inside of him (the Holy Ghost) told him to call us over.  SWEET!!! We spent a good amount of time with him and invited him to come to church.  So this week we are going to visit him plenty.

Now . . .  this is important.  I have a new address.  Anything you send must be sent to the THIS ADDRESS or I will not get it.

Elder Ty M. Bowden

Well that is it for this week.  Remember to send letters to the address above.  Thanks again for your letters, prayers, and love.  Can't wait to hear from you all next week.
