Finish Strong! June 6 2016

hey family! 

so dad, first off. i dont think i'll need anymore money. to be honest, i'd rather just save it for stuff back home. like maybe clothes and stuff like that. i got some good things. i hope everyone is content with the stuff i got em. its not easy shopping here. i got moms nativity. and that took about half the money. and then the other stuff i got was good. paintings. masks. i got some bigger stuff for myself. and then just smaller things for the siblings. and of course i got some cool things for you too ;). i have also been given free stuff. which was really cool. sweet people here in ghana. 

well this week sounds like it was a good one at home. mom i think for my first breakfast, if i'm allowed to request ;) would be your waffles with the home made syrup. and captain crunch! kinda like christmas. is that ok? and for the airport. family and extended family. no friends yet. if thats cool.

 this week for us was even faster than last. the week flew. and i said goodbye to elder snow. which was weird. he was my comp a year and a half ago. probably one of my best friends on mission. and this week also topped the last with church attendance. we had 8 investigators at church. which is awesome for techiman. sadly 5 were there for the sacrament though. then others came after. for sure, that man afo mensah will be baptized next sunday. we pray at least. we could have a couple more before i leave which would be so awesome. 

i feel so good at this time of my mission. i just want to finish strong. with success. it feels so good. like im fulfilling the purpose of me coming out here. still tamale is my favorite. but i love techiman as well. i think it takes second. it doesnt feel real that im about to go home. like, mission is my life. this is what i know! i know that i'll get back into the groove of things back home. but it'll be weird for sure. i need to get a way to make money too. i wanna get a couple things. and school. 

love you family! i could potentially only email home on more time. i dont know if i will the last monday. i'll leave here early for kumasi. and then from there i dont know what ill do. i think i want to go to the temple 2 times a week. once with bridger and then once myself. were i can just go through, and then just sit. and think. for hours. talk to you next week!! dad dont worry. i'll do my best not to die. if i do though. dont worry still. i love you all and we'll see each other so soon!
