weeks 35 & 36 (6/13/2016)

6/6/2016:

Another week gone by!  I hope it was a good one for all of you!

I'm gonna be a typical person and talk about weather for a second...
Yesterday, the weather was perfect!  After church we were walking some of our investigators home when we looked behind us and saw what looked like a huge storm coming.  On our way home the wind hit and blew dust all up in my eyes, twas lovely.  BUT, the rain never came.  The rain dumped some where near by but never hit us.  But oh, the cool breeze hit us well.  It was fantastic!  I think we got to around 70 with the wind-chill, and people were complaining of cold haha.  It was perfectly timed too because I chose to wear my long-sleeved shirt that day.  And it was even more perfectly timed because we had to chase our branch president through town, to visit his friend, while he was riding on his moped.

So, basically things are going well here!  Our investigators are progressing and keeping their commitments to read the Book of Mormon, pray and come to church, which is awesome!  And I've made some good friends.  I hope things are going well for all of you.  I'm sorry to all of you whose birthdays I have forgotten.  I don't have Facebook to help me out haha.  So Happy Birthday!

Read your scriptures!

Love,
Elder Speakman

Here were another week come and gone!
This past week has definitely been a hard working one for me.  So, I guess I can call that good?  (;  Just kidding, things have been good for me!  The missionary work is really moving here in Tamale.  It's great to see. Hard work really does pay off!  Waddya know?!  I've never been able to fall asleep in the middle of the day so easily. SINCE WHEN COULD I TAKE NAPS?! Sometimes during lunch I accidentally fall asleep. I wake up covered in sweat of course.

The Muslims are fasting this whole month soo basically all of Tamale is on a freeze, except for the bakeries, because there is a huge demand for bread, as that is what they like to break their fast with (haha...break-fast...breakfast).  Seriously though, by mid-afternoon all of them are sleeping just so that they can survive.  Teachers don't teach because they get too tired...I don't know how, or if, anything gets done.

So, in conclusion, things are going well! 
We will be traveling down to Techiman (4 hour ride in a tro tro) this Wednesday afternoon, we will stay the night, zone conference the next day, then stay the night, and leave in the morning. EXCITING. Basically I'm going camping (wait....aren't I in Africa?).
Transfers are next week.


I love and miss you all!

Love,
Elder Speakman

p.s. Don't have too much fun on your birthdays Marissa and Naomi... I guess you can be a little happy though (;  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
