Today is Elena's 7th birthday.
We went for a walk and had 6 children join us. They were so sweet. I finally had to tell
them to "go home" because we were getting a long way from where they joined us.
Elder Samchee came over to return my cookie sheet. I made the missionaries a pan of
brownies yesterday and Elder Samchee said they ate them all at once.
Elder Samchee sat and visited with us for a while. He got to laughing about his
companion. Elder Samchee is from Ghana and they speak TWI (pronounced "tree")and
his companion is from Nigeria and they speak IBO (pronounced "Ebo"). They have the
same word in both languages that have different meanings. As they were teaching, his
companion told the investigators that he was going to read from the Akok (a backward
c) nsa. Elder Samchee burst out laughing. In Nigeria that word means bible and in
Ghana it means chicken foot.
