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.
