June 21st Email

Hey!!!!!! Happy Fathers Day to Dad, Trent,Brody and Erik!!!! Sorry I didn't email yesterday. I had Malaria AGAIN!!!!!!! Sunday was the worst day! It wasn't a super bad one just still the old Malaria truck hit me again! haha I feel really bad this isn't going to be a long one, because I still feel somehow dizzy and super weak!

I went on splits this week with Elder Bahme my Zone Leader. I went down and slept over at his apt. for two nights. It was freaking awesome. We just had man talk all night and then I did 10 interviews my first day! It was fun! I really enjoyed getting to know all the candidates. Then on Saturday I started feeling weak, not sick just tired but still went out and worked my butt off!!! I think that is why I got sick again! Sis Sabey says when we feel it coming on to take it easy. But it's all good I'm better!

Ouch Pops!!!! You gotta slow down! your getting too old for that kinda stuff Hahahahaha JK I'm totally messing with you! Your such a stud and my HERO!!!! I Love You Pops! Thanks for everything! I wish we could call home for Fathers Day too but it's all good!

This week is going to be EPIC!!!! Monday 27th we will have or final Zone Conference with the Sabey's from 9-11. Then we will eat and at 12 we will have a giant football Tournament with all six Southern Zones! It is going to be so sweet! I will see Thompson, Stats, and Jack my 3 of my favorites!!! I am so stoked!!! Hopefully I'm healthy. I think I will be!

Sorry my email is crappy but I think you understand!!!! Love you all!!!! I promise I will send an epic email next week!!!!

Peace out

What's Up Family?????

Hope everything is cool! It sounds like it was a fun sweet week! That's awesome! For me it was just HECTIC!!!!! So first Tuesday was my first District meeting and I have the biggest district in the mission 14 missionaries!!! So it's a big sized meeting. I just did like a get to know you type thing for all the new Elders in the district including me. There were 8 haha. More than half are new here in Cape! But it went well. We just got unified!!!! That is going to be my goal as the new district leader. To be unified!!! To be one!!!!

So then it came to Wednesday and I had to travel all the way back down to teach a woman in Moreee who is preparing to go to the temple and be sealed to her husband!!!! Now that is how I'm going to finish the goal, because I started this goal in Fosu then went up to Suny Town and had a different goal and now I'm back down south. So now I have to finish the old goal!!!! Haha so I was super stressed on that but now everything is fine. She is going so I will complete the goal!

Thursday was kind of a blur. We taught a lot of people and just did the work! It's just like being trained all over again. Going to a new area and your comp has been there a little bit before you so he can take you everywhere. It's so nice!!!! It takes a lot of stress away because I have so much to do!

This coming week I have to do a lot of Baptismal interviews for the district. That will be sweet!!!! I'll get to meet all the newest people in the church! I'm excited!!! I have a funny story. At church yesterday I was chasing these little girls after church because they took my phone right out of my pocket. It had been raining so the ground was wet so I couldn't sprint after them. I was just walking fast and then the little turds went outside . The church here in Mankessim is an old 2 story school building. It's sweet but it's still a branch so it's not like super nice or anything. So anyway as I was chasing after them I totally slipped on the concrete. Basically moss like green slippery where rain just settles on the ground. I totally fell head over heels and flat on my butt!!!! I have a huge black and blue bruise on my butt and it also has a huge cut right down the middle of the bruise! haha It sounds bad but it is funny. The best part is that the entire branch was out on the 2nd floor balcony and they all saw the whole thing. Haha so they were laughing and they were worried. A real cool thing about this story is for some strange reason my trousers and my shirt didn't get dirty at all!!! It kind of reminds me of the time I wrecked the Green Lantern! (the Honda scooter)!!! You like that nick name huh? But really I remember that like it was yesterday. It was Ethan's Birthday and I had my last interview with Pres. Myers and I got hit by that freakin girl right on 22nd St. Totally flipped over the car and landed on my back dressed up in all my Priesthood and still no dirt or anything!!! It's powerful. I was lucky and that wreck reminds me of the Jet Ski wreck but we won't talk about that one haha!!!!But it was a sweet day at church other than that!!!

Today we came down to Cape to play some Basketball at the court down here. There is a sweet one right off the beach, It's so sick!!!!! I totally tore it up with my Zone leader Elder Bahme he is from Provo/Orem area. He and Thompson had a lot of the same friends! Then we went down to the beach and played football. It was so fun!!! We had some good hits! I loved it!!! Just getting tacked straight in to the ocean!!! It was awesome . It's nice to be back down by the ocean!

Now I'm in a cafe in Cape and about to go back up to Mankeesem to play some small pitch football with the little kids that hang around our apt. I love them! The people here seriously make this place like home! I could use some shaving blades and maybe more deodorant! that's about it!!!! I think I'm set!

I'm really sad to see the Sabey's go because we were so close. But I'm also very happy to see new people and to get to know the Shultz! Everybody says that when the Sabey's go the mission will change in more than one way.......They leave in July, then a huge group 28 Elders leave in August then about 21 in Thompsons group in Oct., then Stats group about 14 Elders then about 4 in Dec. I don't know we will see how it goes.

I'm out of time but want to say I freaking love you all and pray for you every second of every day! Thanks for your support and Love! Pics are coming soon by the end of this week I promise!

Love you all!!! Bye Bye!!!

Love your Elder/Son/Uncle/Friend/brother/Baller

Hey Famdizzle!!!!
So I'm here back down south! Haha That's what we call it here . Kumasi and Suny Town are the North and eveybody else is the South! So Yeah here I am! Wednesday I got on a STC that traveled from Sunyani to Kumasi and then jumped onto another in Kumasi down to Cape Coast! It took about 9 hours of driving give or take 10 minutes. It sucked not even gonna lie haha! But it was fun. I got to travel with some of my good friends up here. I got to drive right through Fosu. I wanted to get out and just visit everyone but I didn't have time. I was so mad!!! I arrived in Cape Coast and got in the AP's truck and we went to the station and got into another trotro. One of the Elders and I have the same luggage so he took one of my bags and I took one of his. We were switched for like 2 days but it's cool.....I got it all back!!!!!

Then getting to know everyone was way fun!!!! Here it is a lot like Fosu but No trees! It's near the coast so it's just flat and no shade! Really HOT!!!!! I love it!!! Sunday was awesome! These people make me feel at home and I have only been here 5 days! They all treat me like I have been here for 13 months like Fosu!!!! The people are awesome! We have a little group of kids that just hangs around outside our compound. We just sit and play games with them all night! I love them!!!!

The Fante......I was really scared and confused when I got down here when people would talk. But I can already hear everything. They can understand me when I speak so that's good and I just have to get used to them . They speak a lot faster and drop a lot of things at the end of words and speak really nasally! Yeah I'm super excited. I haven't had District Meeting yet. That's tomorrow. We will see how it goes!!!

Thanks for the love and support! I will talk to you all next week!!! Thanks again!!!
Love you!!!!!
