May 13, 2013 - Dado baptism and water buckets

hello again family. 
good to talk to you last night.  im looking at the fruit pizza thing and it looks really good.  also that looks like carpet too.  wow i miss carpet.  i would love to lay down on some nice soft fluffy carpet right now.  sheesh its weird the little things that i never knew were so nice.  but i hope mothers day was good though.  dad good luck on your test today i think youll be fine.  other than that it sounds like everyone is going good back home. 

Dado and missionaries inside new building
yep yesterday we had another baptism.  her name is Dado.  i will try and send some pictures at the end but i never know if it works or not.  she is really awesome though.  we found her about a month ago and she's come to church ever since we first met her. she wants to go the temple in ghana and is just super great.  she has just loved everything that we've taught.  really prepared.  she is super big too, and so i got to baptize her.  everyone said that i'm written in the history books now because i was the first to baptize anyone in the new building, the only building in togo and benin.  pretty cool.  the font is pretty nice but wasn't super deep, but we made do. 

Group outside new building, first one in Togo and Benin

the special missionary meeting was us getting together to watch the priesthood session of conference.  it was raining really hard and so it was hard to hear sometimes but good.  i can't wait to get the liahona with the general conference talks. and zone conferences are every three months, but every month we have a meeting with just our zone. 

heather sounds like she is growing up so fast!  i wont believe it.  she needs to stay little until i'm home and then she can keep growing.  mom great experience about helping that lady.  the lord knows us all and always is doing the best things for us even if sometimes we don't realize it until after.  God knows what he's doing.  austins email didn't work.  it went to some random guy so could you try and get that again.  thanks.  tell brother and sister watts africa sends its best.

that is our apartment from the outside street and then from the same spot to the right and left down the street.  


and yep those two ladies are carrying those buckets on their heads.  they are full of water.  they go to these stations like i said last night with a faucet thing that is tall enough that you can stand under it with a bucket on your head and fill it with water and walk home.  they do that a lot.  they usually don't have to steady stuff with their hands while it's on their head unless its water.  they are really good at it.  i think that is all for this week.  it was good again to talk last night. 


have a great day.  love you all!  Elder Rybin
