Oh also, so this place that you could maybe count as a mall, that I went to today, was crazy. It was like being in the movie I am Legend. Except the infected people are all African shop owners. Man it was a building that was just cement and obviously not finished, but there were tons of vendors inside and it was supa swick!
You have to barter the price here for the mail because they aren't a set price. The mail is messed up here.
OK so the guys name is Brother Kissi and he and his dad are doctors that own a hospital and are super rich. also he reminds me totally of Mr. Child! He's same height, same build, and bald its soo coool! I wish we had soft hand towels. The bathrooms don't usually have those and a lot of the time your lucky to have t-roll.
I had a bite of pork the other day too! It was hard to chew and not very flavorful, but it was better than chicken or goat or fish head ;) Man I miss chocolate, like I can get some here, but it wont be as nice. I have bought a lot of chocolate chip cookies so far because it is 1 cedi for them. They are kind of like much harder chips ahoy.
Probably 1/10th of the girls I meet are named Esther. the Esther that feeds us is Esther Tawir.
Ok so this week has been hard to see people, because it seems like after we contact someone and come back for the return appointment they have all traveled to Accra! We taught this one sister this week who didn't seem very serious about seeing us, but we taught her and her 2 younger siblings and invited them to church. The sister was unsure, but her siblings were incredibly excited! We went to pick them a little early on the way to church yesterday and the kids were totally ready to go. Their mom tried to stop them, but once we talked to her she was fine with everything. Those kids really helped my testimony in knowing that no matter what the Holy Ghost will help you if you stay strong. The little boy is 10 years old and I asked him afterwards why he liked church. He said, "Because it is the house of the Lord."
I know that this Gospel is true and I know that the harder I work the harder things will get, but the easier it will be. Mission is sweet but Neowsem kituah (it's not easy). Yeah you won't pronounce that right. I spell all of my Twi words kind of how they just sound. Try this Knee-ow-sem kit-oo-wah
