Elder G is alive and doing well. He is still in Souza Netime and feels like a transfer to Benin may be in his near future.
He didn't feel like talking about the mission much again this week. I am very blessed however, to have received a few pictures from Bleck. Elder G is very close to this family and I know that a transfer away from them is going to be tough.
Here are a few pictures of Elder G and Elder Sahue teaching Bleck's younger sister.
Wearing his new boots from Smith and Edwards! He mentioned that he wears them all the time and that they require no cleaning- just a light dusting every night.
Is he looking a bit thin on the top of his head to you too?
Sharing the gospel in the humblest of circumstances. I imagine that without all the modern distractions that we have at home, the spirit can be felt very strongly.
Such a handsome missionary! A rare photo indeed- no goofy grin!
That's more like it! The twins are getting big too. Their little flip flops make me smile. I also had to chuckle at their treat bags at church...some things are the same at every LDS meeting. I still bribe my little ones (and Wes) with M&Ms if they will sit quietly until after the sacrament.
Here is a bit of missionary humor for this week. I wonder how many of these "traumas" Elder G has endured...
Days until anticipated release:
