More Sierra Leone and Liberia

These are huge termite hills.  Taller than Rick.

These are the little villages that we saw all the way to Liberia and back.  Actually I thought they were very well built and nice looking.

These beautiful coconut trees are all over the place. 

These are Primary children in a little branch north of Monrovia.  It took us about 30 minutes on bumpy roads to get to the building.  We heard roosters crowing, monkeys whooping and ducks walking through the building. It was all open space with just walls but you can see a black board and the place for the hymn numbers. Yet, these wonderful children were excited, happy and singing.  We loved them so much!

This is the branch president's lovely wife and cute baby.  She was sleeping so soundly during all the singing and people.  So sweet....

Wow! Neat pictures - so interesting? In what language are services held? Cathy - will you get to wear any of those beautiful dresses? How often will you travel? How many branches does the mission include? I liked the village houses - reminded me of rural Mexico. Huge termite mound was intriguing, but sort of creepy. Love you two - hugs and prayers.
