This week was fairly routine, as we are really concentrating on preparing for massive missionary transfers this upcoming week and receiving a new mission office couple.
The Haglunds are the senior couple in the "bush" in Koforidua, about 1 1/2 hours from the mission home. This week their daughter, McKenzie and her husband, Matt, arrived from Salinas, California to visit in Ghana. We hosted them a few nights. Matt teaches high school Spanish plus a college prepare course for immigrants and McKenzie teaches algebra and geometry. We enjoyed meeting them.
Today we attended church in Teshie 3 Ward. It is an area about twenty minutes from our apartment. Elder Mehnpaine, on the left, is from Liberia, and Elder Horne is from Queen Creek, AZ. It was Ward Conference today, so the Stake President was in attendance and encouraged the members to strive for a temple marriage, to be considerate of each other, and to work together on life's challenges.
On Saturday, our neighbors, Wayne and Meg Jones, moved a block away to a new apartment complex. The West Area legal and public relations senior missionaries live there also. The complex has a small swimming pool, exercise room, and modern decor. The apartment across from us will now house the Glanfields, the office mission couple who replaces us.
