                                  THE END @ CALAVI...





Quelle belle histoire, 
        
     It's very interesting how two years passes so fast that i lost track of time!!! What an interesting legendary coming to an end!!! I can't believe that the mission I've always dream't about all my life is coming to an end in less than 15 days!!!
Well, my days in Calavi are not very funny once! lets just say the Devil is trying to punishment for the so much of a comforting mission I served and for all the immeasurable success I encountered whilst i served!!! 
lets take it from the Top, I had the best Trainer in the World!!!! the very best of all the bests: Elder Edwards Wade!!! He was awesome!! and we had so much success and interesting times, spirit feeling moments at Adidogome in Togo where i started off my mission and then I left for Fidjrosse to go baptize the heck out of the freaking Beninois!!! I baptized like everybody that came my way and got those that weren't married, married and then got them baptized!!!
 Yeah,  I rose like a rising generation, i went to the mission office where i became the BOSS!!! had my best companions ever!!! Trevor Oliverson Jared and Trevor Hawkins!!! these two kids were awesome!!! they made my mission complete!!! they were  total God-sent to my life!!! and then, 
But because things happens and the lord needed me at Calavi, i GOT SENT THERE!!! to do what all the other inexperienced missionaries couldn't!!!
Hey! Calavi isn't easy at all! it's like a cursed Area where nothing works!!!
I was gonna ask for a transfer during my last 6 weeks but for some reasons I felt the lord wanted me to remain in calavi. 
well, funny enough, I decided to stay, it was only until then, I started to understand that the lord's way is never ours... things didn't change, but I did, I came to find out that in every Area of my mission there has always been a lesson to learn't that I could call an Area theme and that of Calavi is
                                              "loving the lord more than my own self..."
Instead of returning to a better Area to work and letting someone else come suffer for the lord, I rather do it!!! If i won't then who will??? mission is not all about having success, but learning to endure suffering in the name of God or for Christ's sake or changing the worse pain into comfort... Come to think of it, through success comes from heavenly matters, and only God decides where success is or when we're truly successful. Even if before the world we're not...I can't help but thing about when all Christ's numerous disciples (followers) left him for reasons of fear, discouragement, suffering and mockery. He turned to his back and founded only 12 men behind him, his apostles, He then asked them, are you not also going to leave me like the multitude??? And Peter, my favorite Apostle of all replied and said "where shall we go if we hath left thee?" in other words, we have nowhere else to go, nobody else to run to. if it be the case, we will cry with thee, we will die with thee, for thou art our leader and we are thine followers!!!

in this same manner i reply, maybe with a lesser faith though!

Welcome Back!!!

Cette semaine a été une très belle semaine pour moi!
Je suis très reconnaissant envers mon père celeste pour le compagnon il m'a donné, Elder Oliverson! Il est jusqu'ici mon collegue préferé!
Hey, il faut pas dire à quelqu'un.
Yes ooo! Things has being going on great for me this week even though i turn out to be easily provoked and harsh, but anyways, a bucket of Ice-cream would do!!!!!!

There is one funny thing about me I just discovered this week, It has to do with the way I respond to what goes on around me.
I just found out that i React!!!
Some people would be wondering what that's supposed to mean????
To react is as simple as it applies! You talked to me in not very polite manner, i reply being impolite as a result of your being rude to me! You said something that everybody thinks is not very acceptable, I react by taking away this cute smile off my bright face, letting the darkness of anger and fowning the lord of the day. It's just not right! it takes two to tangle! Even after the worst has happened, you still have that very significant power and right to Act instead of reacting to other's attitude, to keep your cool and not say anything at all, or to Smile.
It's the devil, he makes us see how annoying the other person is first, then, gives us ideas on how we could react to what has happened. But shame on you satan!
To this effect, I promise to do my best not to get angry at anyone or react to what others do and to be my companion's keeper!
I'm happy you're my comp...
















BROTHERS FROM DIFFERENT MOTHERS, VERY DIFFERENT MOTHERS INDEED!


LES FRERES DE MERES DIFFERENTE? MERES TELLEMENT DIFFERENTE VRAIMENT!
KEEP ON CHILLING WITH THESE LITTLE PICS OF MINE!




Kegue lome!





Beach party!!!!












Hey!  Rumors are over the air, did you hear what they said is going on between these two? 
My dear, this is getting more serious than Ebola!!!
At first, they aren't  doing nothing. It all started like a dream, like a vision , like a little flower grow!
then they broke the very first calabash of friendship, it became obvious that something was going on, but what it was, we knew not!
later on when the affection, or probably infatuation became a very deep stuff, hey! people started gossiping!
That even the girl's Dad thinks that there is ... going on!!!
but the big question is, What is really going on? and would all these gossips stop whatever may be going on?
As for me, I think they're cute! they're full of love, one for the other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Three Wise Men...


... And after them all, there shall be three other whom shall be like unto the Father and Son. They shall love as a brother and fight like heroes, they shall tread parts that forever shall be dreaded... and there shall be no sweeter story, no further interesting legendary Known in the history of the Benin Cotonou Mission than these...
I Can't help but refer to them again as THE THREE AMIGOS!, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!
Taking the story a bit earlier, I had not really cause for alarm on my mission, I've had good Areas, nice members, good people around but the one and only thing I have not really been lucky about is having companions!
I had it all, like I really did, It was not a very funny experience for me, Like I had always said before now, the mission is not fair!!!
But now, I take back my words, the mission is fair!. Maybe for a while things won't really go the way you want them to, maybe for a very long while, but there is one thing I know for sure, you will get better, you surely will... its by way promise...
In the midst of a total distress of a very pathetic and down casting host of very heart aching experiences,
The good lord called me out on the burning fire and placed me in a cool rushing waters of excessive rest and  comfort! At first when I met with the Hawkins/ Lala companionship, I thought it was a from from frying pan to fire progression, but after the departure of the  chief apostate, and Oliverson was called, I new we had a mission to organize THE THREE AMIGOS, FRIENDS FOREVER!!!


show me Three companions that truly understand themselves and do as much as possible to keep whats of the most important in missionary work- unity, among them.
Show me those missionaries that appreciate the opportunity of companionship in missionary work, and I'll show you this picture below...
Its not that hard to recognize when they are found, isn't  it?



Are they not so pretty? Do you think among them there is any perfect? well ofcourse except for Mr sais tous, if you know what I mean... I don't think there are not a problem in this companionship, nor has the devil cease to try them but on the contrary, I see three wise men, who are willing to humble themselves and learn to do everything within their power to let things work out among them. And most interestingly I see three FRIENDS! Yes! three friends. That's the most interesting lesson I've been able to learn about successful companionship, they are  always good friends, that finds  interest in one another, with the motto that without my companion, I can't be an effective missionary, though some success may be archived, the greatest success is being your companion's best friend, the greatest success are realized at home, with neighbors, and family members. and as  far as missionary work is concerned, i can't see a better fit to neighbors, families and friend than your companions. 
I've come to understand that I can always make it work!
come to think of it, If I can't make it work for the 3 months I'm gonna be with my companion, how can I make it work for all ETERNITY with my eternal companion???
WELL THE PICTURE OF THE WEEK IS...



                            Célia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.



                         ISN'T SHE PRETTY??????????????????????????
