Cape Coast Castle

As a zone they went to the Cape Coast Castle. The castle has been there for hundreds of years and was used to store slaves before shipping them to America. It was really humbling for Elder Meinzer to see the conditions that they would have kept some of the slaves in.

They also had transfers last week, which was Elder Meinzer's final time. And nobody got lost.

The work has been slow but Sunday's are "sweet". They usually have around ten investigators at church each week. Following church, they taught seven lessons. They definitely have investigators that are progressing. Nana should be baptized in the next few weeks. Affran had read the first five chapters in the Book of Mormon before they met him last week. When they sat down he gave them a comprehensive summary of those chapters. When Elder Meinzer asked him how he felt about what he read, he replied, "I feel that it is good, and that no ordinary man could write a book like this."

They have a lot of solid investigators but Elder Meinzer isn't sure if they will be ready for baptism before he leaves.
