Joseph Fielding Smith said "I plead with you,the youth of Zion everywhere,to keep yourselves clean and pure so that you will be entitled to go to the house of the Lord,and together with the companions of your choice,enjoy all these great blessings the Lord offers you."

Abomosu Library Dedication

1 April 2014

World Joy had a library built to donate to the small town of Abomosu.  This library is for the community's use.  Hopefully, we will be able to fill it with children to have story time and books for them to read.  The literacy class meets in it now. This is great progress moving forward.  In, Asunafo, was a libray built but no one knew how to use it. The literacy program in the communties are all open to all who want to learn English. Sister & Elder Dalton see this as process in action.

Last, Wednesday we were on the baby duty shift.  Of coarse babies come in their own due time.  Elder Dalton- heard the phone ring.  He said, it's time so we  rushed over to the Oppong's to pick her and momma up.

11 February 2014

I thought it was going to be so easy coming back to our mission in Ghana.  The training in the branches is going great this has help working toward us being a Stake in November.

The hard part for me is to live some days without water and power.  We have a poly tank which helps, we just have to purify the water. I just have learned it takes more preparation time in getting your daily chores done. The everyday convinces we had at home in Utah are gone.  Sometimes, I guess at times without knowing it you take things for granted. Thirty years ago we lived in a very small town.  We lived on a piece of land about ten acres it was in Stanwood,Washington, the branch in the church was starting up.  We met in a school building.  First, we dug a well for our water source and had power brought in to our piece of property,we also had some farm animals.  I soon learned I was not going to be a good ranch hand.  Sister Burton said,"We can do hard things."  Our Faith will increase more as we strive to live the gospel principles. Their are many things that I have accomplished by willing to serve on my mission. Sister Dalton
