October 11, 2011

Hi family,

Unfortunately weeks letter might be a tad short. We are tight for time today.
I am very content. This week was difficult because I was sick and tired all the time. I really learned how to trust in the Lord for honestly every step. It wasn't a terrible sick... but it was a really annoying coughy sick. I love my new companion. He has the biggest heart and really exemplifies the commandment to love thy neighbor as thyself. To be honest... I think he love me more than himself. He is just brilliant. He helps me to realize how much I have changed since I have been a greenie. I want his fire, and his boldness. I was just like him when I came out and now I really miss it. I think I've become slightly less energetic about the work. He is really doing wonders to make me strive to do more and become more.

Our investigators are moving slowly... but forward. Abana and he two daughters Adwoa and Felicity are our main investigators right now and they are doing great. Unfortunately they will be going to Ghana soon, and therefore their baptismal date will be pushed back just a tad. They feed us food yesterday and it was well nice. The chicken was much better than my Kentucky Fried Chicken. I really do love them and desire them to press forward and enter the waters of baptism. She has a simple testimony, but she won't deny it. I am really hoping and praying for them. We have been finding some great new investigators and we cannot wait for them to become baptismal dates and then recent converts. Hayleigh and Theresa, Gloria, and Manchu are doing spot on. I am really excited to be a part of their progress and progression in the Gospel.

Theresa went to the temple last week and said it was "an indescribable experience Elder Krebs, I felt the thanks of all the people I was helping". WOW!! She is now 2nd Counselor in the Relief Society Presidency. In my older days as a missionary... I have grown the biggest desire to help recent converts stay active in the Church. How important is that endeavor. There is no point in doing missionary work unless you feed the lambs. I pray for the people I have helped every night, and feel such a bond and responsibility for them. How grateful I am today for the Lord and His blessings. I wait daily on His hand for support. We work and work and work, but God gives the increase. Working when we are tired... is one of the best tests we have. I thank God for trials I have in my life... and God be thanked for the divine gift of His Son Jesus Christ. I love you all.

Elder Krebs

P.s. Good Luck Laura... Never lose Hope. I am sooooooo excited for you.
