SO... Hey! Had a great week! Got a package but cannot pick it up till that meeting on wednesday which is exciting.  It is from the states and that is all i know.  So fingers crossed STAMPS of my very own! which will be wonderful!!

So i had nearly forgotten about all those holidays we have in Australia, there are plenty coming up in April, Easter and Anzac day! But no rest over here i have to think of how i will work Anzac Day into my normal schedule, but it is on a monday so it should be fine!
Saw someone selling an Iphone today!   THE fake-est thing i have ever touched! TERRIBLE really but looked sooooo real. until you turn the screen on. Pretty funny actually. that is something that is easy to come by here knock-offs but i kinda like it cause they are pretty cheep so no need to pay plenty for the things that i need like sunnies.  got a pair of ray bans for 2cedis!!! BARGIN!!! sure they actually say roybon but no one can tell! :)

Making me very excited about this tyedying!!! did you take any photos or am i going to have to wait until next week and see for myself!
who knows!

Your new TV sounds super sweet!!! question but.... is it 3D??? that may be the future of everything         3D!!!! hehe but what would i know right!

Other than transfers next week nothing really interesting has happened! We are teaching some sweet families who are really into the gospel.

This "lady apostle" /actor/song composer/church founder/bible historian/mormon hater tried to finish Elder Evensen and myself in her branch building. It was kind of sad actually but we humbly bore our testimonies gave her a palmflet and left her to her ranting.
what can you do?  some people really don't like the church and it all stems from lack of knlowedge. they just believe anything people say especially when it comes to the church and Joseph Smith i have heard some weird and wacky things!!!  To the west africans to call on saint means like to call a demon or demon worship, you can imagine how confusing that can be to explain! but there are some simple scriptures that explain saints as those followers of Christ.  Also Mormon and Mammon, confusion. But just in another days work!
Every mission has their own challenges and highlights! just have to focus on the good!

Other than that our week was pretty normal! and by normal i mean Excellent.
We had ward conference and an attendance of 185!!! normally 140. (helped alot by our 18 investigators that we had at church!!!) the members here are sooooo great at giving the missionaries referrals! its amazing!

Love you guys lots and hope this week brings more excitments for the both of us!!

lots of love
Elder Anderson!
