Better late than never!
Last week was a little crazy as we were relocated to a new apartment. We will miss the sociality of our friends at Alema Court. There are no other missionaries at our new place; Sapphire Court, but surprisingly there is one LDS couple living here. Duncan and Jane Garden are from Scotland, and he works in the oil and gas industry.
We have attended meetings to plan for this year's focus in SR and the calendar already has several travel dates to visit Cape Coast and Takoradi. Here in the Accra area we will be visiting Stakes, meeting with committees and visiting members businesses to observe, and address concerns. We have talked to President Snow about how we can utilize the missionaries in sharing the SR program with investigators and new members.
Elder Lambert has been researching how to grow mushrooms as a potential small business for members, so we visited the Food Research Institute and had a great experience learning about the process. He can also tell you about raising snails and grass-cutters. Making and selling banana bread and smoothies are some other ideas we are pursuing.
I can just see us setting up a little stand in Kamas when we get home, selling smoked muskrats, shaggy mane mushrooms, growing out of our lawn, and zucchini bread! Maybe we will even branch out and sell smoothies made from local plums and apples.... Oh, the possibilities!!!!
We are so grateful for the opportunity of being here and serving the Lord. Daily, we are humbled by what we see and feel. It's not always easy, but it's definitely worth it!
All our love,
Elder and Sister Lambert
