Elder Harris, Portia and Gordella

This has been a long, hard week for Elder Akoki and I with only a little to show for it unfortunately. Most of our work has been with some less actives in a town called Ahinsan which is a good walk from our apartment and we have been visiting there twice a day. None of the less actives we were working with came to church yesterday. We even loaned this one guy some pants but he still didn't show up.

On the bright side our investigator Williams came to church for the third time in a row yesterday. He is really progressing well, now we just need to finish the lessons. He told us that when we was going home from church last sunday he took a tro tro full of people. One guy asked him if he was a Mormon. Having only known about the church for two weeks, Williams told the man that he didn't know what a Mormon was. The man explained that the Latter Day Saints worship Mormon and Joseph Smith. Other people in the tro tro agreed. Williams, who can be fond of arguing, stood up for the church and the Book of Mormon telling all the people on the tro tro that it is another testament of Jesus Christ and that the church doesn't worship Mormon. He told them that the Book of Mormon works with the Bible and together they give us the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After only two weeks of learning, Williams stood up for the church against at least ten people in a crowded tro tro bus. After the baptism last week, he asked us when his would come and we told him there are still a few steps to take before he could be baptized. He really is ready.

Thanksgiving was awesome this week. Our district is fortunate to have Elder and Sister Kiffer who made us a true Thanksgiving meal with chicken, stuffing, real mashed potatoes, homemade rolls, cranberries, and sweet potatoes. I was more full than i've ever been before. Pretty sweet.

Theres not much else going on here. Just work every day and lots of walking. I'm still enjoying myself a whole transfer period in. Tonight we find out if any of us are leaving. Elder Akoki and I probably won't be but Elder Adjeifio will probably go and Elder Lehr might be training. I really hope they don't leave yet. We will also be having new greenies coming on Wednesday so it will be sweet to see someone newer than me.
