We're back in Ghana and couldn't wait to go visit the young Elders and Sisters at the Ghana MTC in Tema (20 miles west of Accra). It always gives us a great lift, especially at their fast and testimony meeting.
Most of the missionaries are from Africa; today we met missionaries from Ghana, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Kenya, and Cape Verde. There were about 8 Obroni (white folks) Elders, mostly from the United States with one from South Africa. This MTC group is about 54 in number; the next group will be 92 (and that's an all time record).
Among their numbers, we met young Elder Ballard. Since his grandfather was Gregg's mission president in Toronto, Canada, we promised to look in on Truman. He looked well and happy. He has been in Africa about 2 weeks and is adjusting well. It was fun to learn that he has been to Ghana before, and even did his Eagle Project here. He'll have a great mission in Ghana.
