Happy Birthday Elder Madsen!!

hey family!!

this week sounded AWESOME. haha i missed halloween. you all looked amazing. tenny that (peanut butter & jelly costume) was such an awesome idea. it looked so good. momma holy cow. i love your costume. its pretty freaky but totally you. i was happy to see all of the pics. the hunt looked sweet and so did the food. i miss miss miss the food. i think about when i get home sometimes and what itll be like when i can eat mom and dads food again. ugh.

so this last week was good and this next week will be even better. i got the packages and i got packages from grandma as well and from someone else. fam thanks for your kind words. mo i really feel like we got close as well. its weird cuz we're twins but we are super different in age. we just dominate the house when we are together. haha mom i think about those mornings all the time. i miss them so much. just laughing and watching gmm together. seriously so fun. tenny im excited to hear how the challenge goes. i hope you get your puppy. that would be so awesome. i already know his name...james. right? ya k good. ;)

dad i want you all to study the sermon on the mount. matt. 5,6,and 7. if its not too much. i just love it. have everyone maybe read it personally then talk about it or just read it all together and talk about it. what everyone's thoughts are about it. what their favorite part was. things like that.

so this last sunday we watched parts of conference in church. we didn’t know until we got there...and we had THREE investigators coming for the first time. so we had to explain what it was and then painfully watch as they sat through something they had no idea about. i wish bishop would have told us. speaking of bishop, he and his wife might come to conference sometime next year. and i may or may not have said they could stay at our house. haha they dont even know if they will for sure. but ill let you know :) dad you would love bishop nkroma. he is so cool. super smart and really knowledgeable.

so we went to review some lessons with alice and elizabeth, two recent converts. they stay together. they are both about 14, 15. and when we got there they took our tags so we let them teach the lessons. as a review we had them teach what they knew about the topics and they did SO well. it was awesome. they taught about the plan of salvation and about the law of chastity. it was the best way to review ever. they are so awesome. haha and elizabeth was reading something as part of the teaching, after she read it she started translating it into twi (as they usually do in church). she realized what she was doing and we all started laughing so hard. it was so funny.

so i was able to pound more fufu. its so scary. they put so much trust in us and im just going to take someones fingers off one of these days. so bridget, one of our recent converts, is having a little party for me for my bday. we are going over to her house and alice and elizabeth are coming. and we are pounding fufu. eating rice. and just other food. itll be so fun! and other than that we have two other meals with members this week as well. its gunna be a good week as far as food goes. bishops wife makes the best fufu ive ever had. its so good. they feed us quite a bit. i love them so much. we are teaching a guy named assemblies. he is so awesome. we have only taught him twice but he knows about the tithing and wants to pay it to our church because he wants to pay it to "the true church" as he said. he is so cool. so that is about it for this week.

 i love you all! keep being awesome. love you all.
