Axim, Ghana (January 9, 2017)

This week has really been a good one! A while back I bought some bananas on the side of the rode (because I was hungry). Right after I bought the bananas I waved to an old man sitting alone a little bit off the road on the other side. Let’s just say he gave me a halfhearted wave back. But, as we walked a little bit down the road we ran into a bunch of little children, and I ended up giving all the bananas away to them because I thought they were all so cute. The African children are my favorite here. But, after this, the man was yelling at us to come back, so we went to him. He started asking us all these different questions and wanted to know why we were here and what we taught about. These questions were very easy to answer for my companion and I, and we ended up having a little lesson with him. He since then has come to church the past three weeks, and we have able to teach him a lot. He lives in a village away from Axim called Nsien. He loves to ask questions and I have enjoyed being able to answer all of them. He has also become our most serious investigator with a baptism date early next month.

We actually have two baptisms early next month. The other is with a women named Janet. She has a really huge desire to learn about our church and has also come to church for the past 3 Sundays. She has some family problems, though, that has made it difficult for her, and I am just so grateful for how hard she has pushed through them to make time for us and to come to church. She is a really humble women. I am so grateful for the chance I have had to be able to find these people, and I really hope that as they continue to learn from us that they will see the blessing in their life from it! I miss and love you all back home!
