Praying for Strength

This past week Elder Meinzer and his companion went with some of the members to their farm and walked for like 45 minutes through the bush to reach the farm. They have a little mud hut on their farm that they stay in occasionally. They needed stuff from their farm brought back so Elder Meinzer volunteered to carry stuff on his head. Bad idea! "Walking for 45 minutes with a heavy load on my head hurt my neck and I did a lot of praying for strength to be able to reach the roadside. I made it but it sucked."

They have a returned missionary in their ward named Zachary Mensah which is very similar to his name. It is the first Zachary Elder Meinzer has heard of.

We Elder Meinzer first arrived in the area six weeks ago they had essentially zero investigators and had to do a lot of contacting. But now they have a ton of investigators and many people progressing towards baptism. "It makes me very grateful for the Lord and for blessing us in our area as we do our best to be obedient and work hard."
