We have a lot of African Elders here, some from Ghana, some from Nigeria, Benin, Togo, South Africa, Madagascar, Burundi, Sierra Leone, Cote D' Ivoire, Liberia, Uganda, D.R. Congo, and a lot of other countries. They are all very cheerful and happy people and it is fun to be around them, they are truly pioneers for their respective countries. The Elder from Burundi is the first Elder ever to serve from Burundi and he is here with us! How cool!
I am finally starting to realize that I am gone for two years. At first I got kind of down but now I am happier. I never realized how much a missionaries family means to him! I ABSOLUTELY look forward to getting e-mails from you guys every week, it is the highlight of my week! I am glad to do the work of the Lord and am seeing how great my life was back home. Life is very hard for many people here, very hard. I need to take you here someday so that you can see the amazing place I am living in here. Heavenly Father loves all his children, and has given us a way to bless all of them, and make their lives better, even if I can't bring them out of poverty. Anyway, I love you all!!!
This is one of the Government buildings in Accra. It may be the equivalent to the "White House".
