Grandma and Grandpa are WHAT?! THAT'S TOO COOL! I'm excited for them. [his grandparents have been called as service missionaries in the California Carlsbad mission]
Thanks for telling me about Sister Sykes. I did know her, I was her home teacher for a while. I really liked her. She's also the grandma of one of my friends from high school, Gentry Tolton. Sad to hear.
Okay, my week:
So, starting on Monday: For FHE we watched the Restoration at a member's house! It was nice to see, but there are too many different cuts [versions?] of that movie. Then we went home and I planned instruction. The end!
Tuesday: District meeting! I gave my first instruction in Ghana! I was nervous about it when I was preparing, but it ended up being really good (or so my district members told me..). I gave it about the connection between our purpose as missionaries and our study. It was nice! [as for being DL:] It's always felt pretty normal this time around. The instruction part was the only nervous thing. I'm feeling fine with it. :) We stopped by a nearby store as we left, and I realized something.. I would LOVE to get the recipe to Fettuccine Alfredo, and the needed ingredients. I miss that food. Anyway, the rest of the day was pretty slow, we went to Agona and taught a couple lessons.
Wednesday: We had a service project! That was for a toilet.. Haha.. yeah.. I was able to do acrobatics to get out! ;) it was DEEP. Taller than me. Only slightly cooler than that beach ditch I dug before.. [in Liberia]

Saturday: First we went to an FM with the zone leaders. But it was a crappy proselyting day, everybody seemed to bounce us and it was really rainy. But we came home and.. transfer news!!! I'm staying! I'm with Elder 'Atu'ake for another 8 weeks; I'm super excited. At the same time transfer news came, the APs dropped off a package... to ME! :) I LOVED it. Sweet letter from Dad, really. Also, I've already started taking the vitamins! I'm feeling great! It says 3 a day for a while.. That would make them only last a month. But they're good for me! I also loved the guitar stuff. Finally my guitar is REALLY in tune. Sounds great. :) Also, Elder Cavaness is heading home this week, and Elder 'Atu'ake is his "grandson", so he gave his weight set to him! IT'S AWESOME. A real barbell! So.. I want some good wods ["workout of the day"]. No running, please, 'cause that's a pain as a missionary, but other stuff, please. :) I have a barbell and two arm weights (all adjustable weights.) I want the Rx weight for them, too. :)
Sunday: So, we had a referral at church today! That was a highlight! Also, the ward gave me a copy of "Come Unto Christ," the 2014 theme song for the YW, so I'm gonna learn that on guitar. I had a chance after the baptism (for the sisters) to play that song on the organ. It's really nice. :) That was about it for Sunday!
This morning: I had the biggest workout of my mission. I'm loving these weights. My body actually HURTS! :D Anyway, that was the week for ya'll. :)
I'm doing well. I'm trying to pick up my level again back to being awesome, so I've been working hard more these past few days. I'm trying to get better at being a missionary. I keep going through these random experiences and feelings that remind me that this isn't Liberia, and I miss it. I'm slowly getting adapted, but it's not easy, and it feels like it's been holding me back a bit lately. But I love you all so much! Have an awesome week! :)
And this one. Goats. ;)
