Lunch in Ghana

Mothers Day Phone Call

Wow it was the best Mothers Day ever. Jeff called on Sat night about 6:00. He called to tell us when he'd call on Sunday. He sounded great. He said he'd call about 11:00 a.m. Everyone was there. We used speaker phone which worked pretty good. We got disconnected about 7 times. He has an accent. it's kind of British sounding. He talks slow and pronounces every letter. He says the Ghanaian don't understand his Utah accent. He says funny things like when he doesn't hear you he said "You Say?" instead of what? He spoke a little TWI. He pronounces it chwee. He is real happy and loves his comp., the people, and FUFU! We had a list of questions. He says church is hard because it's all in TWI and although he's getting better at the language he says it's hard.
Some of the questions and answers:
We have only cold water, we cut each others hair, favorite food is Jolas it's a fried rice, he's getting used to the heat, animals we have seen-chickens (bright pink), goats, dogs, cats, lots of lizards, snakes, spiders and plenty of mosquito's!!!
Everyone got one on one time. Then he ended the call with bearing his testimony and expressing his gratitude for all of us. It was emotional and very sweet. I can't wait until Christmas!!!

May 3rd Email

We just got back from Swedru. We traveled there to play soccer. Man I almost scored like 3 goals. I'm improving so much! It's awesome!!! We were playing the Elders up there. We had a great week. We are teaching about 30-50 lessons. Teaching is sweet, I like it but my comp does a lot of the talking. Lately I have been talking quite a bit! The spirit is so different here. I talked to Pres Sabey in my interview last week. I said "Is it bad that I can't really feel the spirit?" and he said you just can't really feel the difference because we are always feeling it. Back home we only felt it like once a week at church or so. He said you have it you just don't know it!

Francisca is getting baptized the week after Mother's Day. She is doing great!!!

I can't believe it's already Mothers Day! I'm so stoked! I'm so excited to call. I will call at 12:00 Midnight on Sat (6:00 p.m.) And let you know when I'm calling on Sun. I'm ready to answer all the questions in your letter. It will make more since if I tell you in person.

Sorry the power just went out so we couldn't email. Well we are going home so......Pops I Love You!!! Have a good hopefully fast week and I will talk to you on Sat Night!!!

I bought credit to talk thanks for the extra money. Have a good week! Hopefully a fast one!!I Love you thanks again for everything Mom I Love You!!!

April 26th Email

I'm doing well! This week was kinda crappy. Like teaching wise, no one was home, no one came to church! It just wasn't a good week that way!!! But today we were making our way to play football or soccer ha ha and it started raining like seriously the hardest rain I have ever seen. We just played in the rain for like three hours. It was insanely fun!!!
Definitely a day I will never forget!!! I love Ghana!!!
Today in the rain it was just so peaceful and amazing it couldn't have happened anywhere else. I don't know how to explain it.

Apom etesen ha ha that means how is your health? TWI Gotta love it!

I will call a midnight the night before and tell you when I'm calling. (My time cuz then it's Mothers Day) I don't know if Francisca is going to be baptized on Mothers Day anymore. She didn't come to church Sunday so we might have to kick it back one week unless she proves us wrong.

We asked him if he wanted us to send his favorite cereal and powdered milk but he said no thanks. It's ok I'm living off of eggs right now and I love them and FUFU. It's so freaking GOOD!!!

I got your letter when I got the pkg but not Dad's letter yet. That's because we haven't got our mail for a week so I'm sure it will be in there the next time. My talk got moved to tomorrow so we'll see how it goes. I'm sure I'll do fine.

We go to the farm about once a week to work. I love it! It is so sick!!! There was a snake that jumped out of a tree last week it was so crazy! I just started my second second transfer 3 wks ago so 3 more weeks. I think I will be with Elder Thompson for 3 more transfers. Hopefully!!! That's what Elder Lewis said our AP. He is my hero! I love the kid!!!

You should be getting my pkg soon. It's dark and so we need to head back. Talk to you next week. Thanks for everything. Have a good week.
Elder Jeffy Speechly! The best son you ever had! Haha the only one!!!

New Game

Jeff sent us a pkg with 2 CD's of pictures. It was the best. Now we know what it looks like where he lives. He actually has a nice appt. His comp is great! I really like him. He thinks Jeff's crazy and a great big ball of JOY!!!
