Amasaman 1 Here I Come!!!!
Well Folks...The results are in...I have been Transferred. I have been transferred to a small little community called Amasaman. It is part of the Ofankor Ward and is part of the Tesano Stake. So it's nice I still get to see Elder Smith and Elder Anderson at Zone Activities and Zone Meetings. There is also another important thing about this transfer... I am now a Senior Companion. I am now responsible for a younger missionary than myself.
So now onto the details of the new area... As you can imagine it is different than my last area. In fact its way different. The area is very big and it is very far from the apartment. But that's nothing to me because we had 8 investigators at church on Sunday. So hopefully that doesn't become a problem. We have to bike to our area. Did I mention that the area is all dirt roads? Ya well it is. So my shirts are about to get destroyed by dirt.
Now onto my companion...he is from Uganda. His name (which I sadly cannot yet pronounce) is Elder Kiwanuka. He is 21 years old and has been out on his mission for 3 months now. He is eager to contact and we will work on teaching in unity. So far in my mission it has been easy to teach because ALL of my companions have taught the same way, but I am eager to try new styles and what not... The Ofankor District that I am in has 4 Elders and 4 Sisters. This is my first District with Sister Missionaries in it.
The apartment is super nice. It is way bigger than my last apartment. It's almost a brand new apartment. It opened 3 transfers ago. I have been blessed to have very nice apartments. But I don't have to worry really about going to a bad one anymore. Sister Hill has a new standard for apartments for missionaries and is going to make sure they live in nice places. But back to the Amasaman apartment. I am excited to live here. I just wish I had a bigger bike. The one they have for me is not my size. I talked to the office couple and they said there is nothing I can really do about it. So I will just have to bike standing up so I don't destroy my knees.
Now onto General Conference. I am currently downloading all of the sessions of it onto an SD card of mine. It hopefully will be done soon. I just want everyone to listen to Elder Dube and Elder Vinson's talks. These two are the First and Second Counselors in the Africa West Area Presidency. Also on a little side note...If you are smart, which all of you should be, you should know that I only have two General Conferences in Ghana left. If you are counting that way, I am half way done. But lets not count that way okay. Its not a nice image to put into some of our minds. Thanks.
Now, I apologize to those I have not replied to emails yet. Since I have become a Senior Companion I have to report to President Hill twice as much stuff as I had to do before. So I will just finish off here. Once again any questions feel free to let my mom know or shoot me an email. I will try to best answer them as possible.
Ta Ta for now.
PS... So how is it the Broncos blow out all these great teams but yet barely win to the Cowboys, who are 2-3 and are at the top of the NFC South!?!?! HUH??? Also how is it the Chiefs are 5-0???
I've said enough... Love ya!!!! :)
