Picture Overload and A really cool experience..

Hello family and friends,

I hope this letter finds you well things have been going great for me here in Ghana, lots of fun hoping that you get to see my pictures that ive sent and even that everyone is having happy lives, time is moving so quickly its weirding me out I will get to call home this week and I really feel like I just did, it really sneaked up on me we have been working hard and when that happens time just seems to go faster than you would like it to, some days I just want to slow down for a little bit so I can think.

I have been able to meet some great people as of late one was a Area seventy that we had the opportunity to take to some meetings in one of the Kumasi stakes, we picked him up at the hotel and noticed he called us over I could see his bright continence from the door he just looked so happy as he said very loudly across the room, my elders come! I WANT YOU TO MEET MY FRIENDS he had made friends with many of the staff there, and he was telling them about the church and his desire for us to teach them, as soon as we got into the car we began to talk before I knew it he was leaning forward between the two seats telling us stories about life and how things were as a area seventy, he just made me so happy he was so full of life so happy to be a representative of the lord. I felt rejuvenated to go about the work by his example of joy, just pure joy. Later that day we went to pick him up and take him to the airport and he saved us a lunch and some drinks and told us to enjoy, he continued with that same loving attitude until we reached the gate. These men have been called of God to proclaim the gospel and move forward the work of the Lord, I can see it and feel it.

I have loved my mission, its been so hard, but so very worth it, I'm grateful for the experiences I am now having and am going to continue to have, I testify of a loving Savior and a dear all knowing father watching over us in all ways, he knows what is best he knows what will bring us true and everlasting happiness, I'm so grateful for that.

I testify of the book of Mormon and its divinity and truth. I know it’s the word of God and through it man can get closer to God by it than by any other book.

Im grateful for the wonderful leaders of this church that are always serving us and helping us to be better servants of the Lord I'm grateful for their example in all things. I love you all and am so grateful for all that you do for your brothers and sisters around you, may your light so shine forth because I know there are so many times that those around us need our light more than we do, I leave this with you in the sacred name of Jesus Christ amen. Have a wonderful week,

Much love,

Elder Lawson

This is my favorite ever, he had this man paint the Sacramento Temple, I told him to Please have him do another one, because I want him too..

Elder Lawson LOVES to drive, he loves being in the office and he loves his the Elders he serve with, they will be life long friends..

I love this picture so much, Josh is by the wall laughing so hard and I have so many pictures of him laughing like this before he left on his mission, it makes this moms heart so happy to see him happy!!
Elder Lawson has had some very hard times on his mission so to see him happy and finally having the full missionary experience is priceless.

Another driving picture...He loves his companion so much..He said he is a great guy!!


This Picture made my stomach turn..yes this is what they put in soup, Josh said "its just how it is mom"
Snail Soup..

Just a short message: Elder Lawson has grown so much while he has been gone, He turned 21 this week, we are so grateful for his love and wiliness to serve the Lord and for doing Hard things..Harder things then he could have ever imagined, he will continue to do Hard things, but I know the Lord loves him and will help him through everything, Im looking forward to my Mothers Day Call, best day ever!!
Love, Mom
