Mission Tour with Elder and Sister Dickson

Last month we were in Monrovia, Liberia, for the Mission Tour with the Dicksons.  This week Elder and Sister Dickson came to Freetown.  We bussed in the Bo Zone so we could have them with the Freetown Zone for a special conference with Elder Dickson.  It was a wonderful and spiritual time spent together.
The Bo Zone after arrival on March 3rd.  We made them sandwiches, had cookies, bananas and cold water.  They had gotten up at 4:45 a.m. to catch the bus to Freetown. The bus left at 6 a.m. and they arrived about 11:30 a.m.

The Elders always enjoy seeing each other when Bo and Freetown get together.

Elder Massey and Elder Ogoloma....

Elder Kargbo (eating chicken) and I have a unstated standing agreement.  What I don't eat....he wants...Usually the chicken and rice are way too spicy for me, so I separate my little part.  Then, all I have to do is look around and there he is, waiting to see if I have more....I just nod and he's happily coming for the rest of the meal.  That's Elder Tade enjoying the joke. Elder Kargbo eats everything....bones and all.
Gathering back together after lunch...
All these Elders are such wonderful men!  We just love them!  They do so much for so many people and do it because they love the Lord.  More to come...
