**Note from older sister: I’m not quite a year behind in posting Elder Whipple’s emails, but I’m back on track to post – that way I can make his mission blog into a book upon his return!!

Giant tree at an investigators house…
Brother Amoah is an excellent leather maker.
Scripture bags, anyone?
Zone council in Tamale a few weeks ago.
Maxwell is one of the most powerful members I have ever met. He is only 15 and was just baptized, but he speaks straight doctrine. He has a powerful testimony and he loves to share it. He told us the other day that God has given all of us “talents” and he wants to share his. He also told us that when he reads the scriptures, he closes his eyes and ponders the words. When he does this, he just sees what the Lord is trying to teach him with the scripture he is reading. Future apostle?
Zone activity in Tamale with my powerful companion, Elder Ulu.

Apartment P-day lunch!
Another powerful member named Lydia.
Gotta work for our dinners sometimes… I am stirring banchu at a members house. It was awesome.
This is Gifty!!! Everything is cool between us and her mom now. She will be baptized this Saturday!!!
The youth here in Bolgatanga will do miracles one day. They are wonderful young people with some of the the most powerful testimonies I have ever heard. Future leaders and missionaries for sure. We will be baptizing 4 of the youth this coming Saturday. They have been coming for the past 6 months.
I love it here. The is no end to the work here. Elder Ulu is the best. This would be a powerful place to train… 🙂
