November 9, 2009

Hey again!

First off, I'm glad you got the pictures. Now that I know they can make it home mayber I'll send some more (more than ten do fit on a cd). I'll try and take more of a variety of pics from now on for ya haha.

The service project was my second saturday here, all the members here went and cleaned the hospital in tokoin. It was a lot of fun and it was really cool to see all the members there serving their country.

The french is still coming a long well. I can understand pretty much everything everyone says but I'm still working on expanding my vocabulary. But its getting better everyday, the more I talk to peopel the more I learn.

Great job in the primary program, Jack! Now you just gotta stay healthy and keep going to school!

I cant wait to get my packages! From what I hear i have my birthday package waiting for me at the couple's house, I'll probably get it tomorrow at zone conference. I'm really excited! Thank you!

Anyway, had a good week this week. It's a lot of fun in my district now but we still work hard (last night the assistants called from abidjan to congratulate us on our numbers). Me and E Halterman have been teaching a lot of new people lately and its going really well, we have a lot of investigators with a lot of promise. One of them just got back from living in nebraska for ten years so he loves to talk to us in english using slang and stuff. Hes interesting, he met with the missionaries for five years in the US (they even helped him move) and was about to get baptized but it fell through. We'll see what happens with him. I gave a talk in church yesterday too so I hope that went alright. I talked about how charity and missionary work go together. Hopefully it was coherent.

Zone conferench with Elder Dickson is tomorrow so I'm pretty excited for that. We just had a bunch of changes so I doubt anything big will happen but it could be the end of Elder Bowman in Togo. He has over 13 months now so he should be heading to Cote DIvoire soon, but I think that should be it. I'm still loving life in Hedzranawoe, I love the members and all of our investigators. It's so awesome to see that even in Africa halfway around the world the church and the gospel are the same. I have such a love for this gospel and there is nothing I would rather be doing than sharing it with the people here.

Well I love you all so much! I cant wait to write you again and hear from you again next week!

Love, your SON,
Elder Bertoch

PS I pulled money out of the ATM last week and it worked!
