He made it!

 The journey to get here has been a long and arduous one, but its been really exciting all at the same time.
 The flight to London took forever, but I sat next to a cute French girl who can speak both French and English and I asked her if she could "help me" read Moroni 10:3-5 in Frech. We also read the "Missionary Purpose" in PMG page 1 in French. Talking to her though was great practice because she has never heard of the church and she didn't know what a missinonary was so I was able to sort of explain it all to her.
 While in the London airport, which was monsterously massive, we ended up meeting three other missionaries going to the same mission as us! The flight to Ghana from London was great!
 Once we got out of the plane, a blast of heat, humidity and smell came over me. It constantly smells like the Hogle Zoo, if there is no AC on I'm soaked in sweat in a matter of seconds, the air is really thick and so it's really hard to breathe, but despite it all, I absolutely love it here!
 But hey, I made it to Ghana safe and sound and I'm doing super great so don't even worry about me.

There he goes!

He gave us all a hug and then took a deep breath, all the while not being able to contain the huge smile on his face. He gave a quick wave over the shoulder and walked towards his next spiritual adventure, as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
