Week 57

Dear Mother, 
Sounds like a busy week. There is a new elder in the district from Ogden. He is pretty sweet. Our District has gotten very big. We now have 10 Elders and it used to only be 6.   
1. (Do you drive or do you have a driver?) We drive. I still need to get a license so Elder Asay is driving but we do drive. It's crazy sometimes but it is cool. 
2. (Do you work in the office every day?)Every day but Sunday usually. We have P day on Monday but we come to the office to email. On Saturday the office couple has their p day but we still come to the office.   
3. (How many missionaries from the old mission are in the new mission?) When the mission split Ghana Accra mission got about 120 and the new Ghana Accra west mission got about 90.  
4. He(How is the new mission president? Do you work with him every day?)  is really great. Different than President Judd but he is great. some days we don't see him but we usually see him on a daily basis but he is definitely a busy man.  
We had transfers on Wednesday so we had to wake up early to go to Tema to the MTC to pick up the new missionaries. Then we had to go to the airport to pick up a missionary from Lesotho. His visa came late so he was in the South Africa MTC. So we had to wait for him for awhile but he came and then we brought him to the office. After that we had to go to our old apartment and move our stuff out so the other missionaries could move in. Then we moved into our new apartment. We also had 2 missionaries stay the night with us because they got transferred to the bush and it was too late for them to travel. So it was a crazy day. Then the end the day we bought pizza and that was really nice. We had a busy week but it was good. We had to show the new elders around Alajo because they are both new but they are doing great. It has been crazy but it was a great week. I am still studying in the Doctrine and Covenants and I am enjoying it very much. Hope you have a good week mom love you 
Your favorite son. 
Thanks family for writing me. It means a lot. I love you 

Dear Dad, 
We drive a 15 passenger van around ha so we can haul all the supplies around. That has probably been the hardest part about being in the office is managing all the things we have to do. But we are doing better at managing our time but the other Alajo elders got most of our investigators so we have some finding to do. We are in the office now. The nice thing is that we don't have to pay.  Well dad I love you thanks for everything. 

Love Elder Thornhill
