Feb 13th and Feb 20th Emails & MALARIA!!!!

I don't know what happened last week. Myldsmail was having problems but now it's ok so here's what happened this week. We had our baptism of 5 yesterday and we should be having another of 7 next week! We couldn't get them all interviewed so that's why. It was sweet Elder Jacks 1st baptisms!!! It was a sweet week and we are just chillin in Fosu today! I miss you and I love you!

How is everyone? Grammy, Grandma, and all the little stinkin kids geez! Haha and you and Pops and all my perfect sisters and the best brothers in the world? I just want to start off by saying how lucky I am to be a part of this family and thank each one of you for teaching me over the years. I love you all seriously sooooooo Much!!!!!

This week has been super crazy! We had zone conference on Thurs which was sweet. President Sabey announced the goal. It will be hard. Every missionary is to baptise and family and help a different family go to the temple, to be sealed in 4 months! It will be the best when we can take them to the temple.

I got both packages that day with all the pics and everything! Thanks so much! Then Friday at about 4 in the morning, IT HIT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!MALARIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It hit hard too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I had to go to the hospital to get IV's I was so dehydrated! Sat and Sunday we couldn't go to church. I was just way too weak! So the baptism is this coming Sunday. Everything just fell apart! But Mom this Malaria was crazy! It hit me faster than anything! Serious that's what just blows my mind about the sickness. It's just insanely fast and it just hurts! Ha ha but I'm cool now I promise!!!! Don't worry I'm getting better just in the rehab state now!

Then today we had a short mission tour in Cape and I met all my MT's except Adams haha he's up in Kumasi. Sorry but yeah it was sweet! Bishop Mc Mullin the Presiding Bishopric and Sitati and Gonzales from the Seventy were all there. It was only an hour but it was awesome!!!!! So that's my crazy and hectic week! Transfers are on March 9th I think I'll go. I have mixed emotions but I am ready!!!!

I love you
Your Son Elder Speechly

Hey Family!!! How is the new Baby Girl? She looks adorable! (Jeff's sister Amy had a baby girl Paisli on Jan 25th after 11 wks of bed rest) I'm so mad! That's the 3rd baby I have missed since I have been out! I'm so jealous!

This week had been pretty crazy hectic! Tuesday night the wildest storm hit. I thought the second coming was here! HAHA! So we get a call early Wednesday morning that some pretty bad damage had happened to a lot of our members and their neighbors! So we got ready and went out. The mud huts which are actually pretty nice were just destroyed. So we were crazy busy working and we got another call from our district pres. saying we need to come to the district center. We thought there was damage there but when we rolled up there was a couple Obruni's and a bunch of camera equipment. They said they were filming a movie for the church and taking pics for the Liahona!!! I don't think I will be in any of it but just in case look out for it! Oh yeah then we went right back to work. It's been pretty tiring all week! We've been building and fixing everything!

The baptism will be in the next 2 wks cause we couldn't get them all interviewed this week from all the damage and working on that! Also my family the Nyimpha's, their son left on his mission Friday. It was sweet! He went to the Enugu Nigeria Mission! I will miss that kid! I loved him! He worked with us a lot! He will be a great missionary!

I have been thinking a lot about school and where and what I want to do! I'm still thinking about the transfer, coming home one transfer early. If not 7 months is a long time to sit. I have some time to think still but not much! So yeah that's my week in review!

Love your son

Hey Fam I'm here!!!!! Transfers just came in and............. I'm staying!!!!!!!! HAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!I Love It! Elder Lehr my best friend is coming to be my Zone Leader!!!!! I'm so happy! I can't stop screaming!!!! 13 months in Fosu!!!! I'm King!!!!! I did set a Record in Fosu! Elder Lehr will live about 15 min away so I will see him all the time. I love that kid! I love my son Elder Jack too! We are just doing work and loving the jungle! Honestly I don't want to leave! I didn't want to miss the baptism. They all didn't come this week so I was actually glad I didn't get transferred so we can get this baptism rolling within the next week or two! It's about 17 I think! It will be epic! I'm excited!

Saturday we had a fireside which went really well actually!!! We're teaching a lot of people that can't speak English so we have a boy with us all day to translate. He is getting ready to go on his mission this upcoming week so it will be hard when he leaves.

I love this place! Fosu is honestly my home, family, friends, home ward,and everything!

That was it! Internet and Africa!!!
