At the wharf and more.

Elder Lancaster and Elder Tippets on their way home returning with honor!

We had more leave two days later.  Elder Ogoloma to Nigeria, President Roggia, Elder Ndlovu to Zimbabwe and Elder Beckwith to Australia.  We love you all and will miss you.
At the wharf, we saw a kitty.  It is not a common sight to see cats here.
Yesterday, we sent Sister Kargbo and Elder Sesay to the Ghana MTC.  They are both going to the Ghana Cape Coast Mission after three weeks in the Missionary Training Center in Ghana. Both had never used the water taxi or flown.  It takes a lot of faith to do both things as well as going to a new country to serve the Lord.
Elder Patterson discussing things with Elder Rochester as all the new elders head to their areas and trainers.

loaded and ready to get in

Elders Emanuelson, Rochester and Purcell with Elder Allred ready to direct the backing of the van.
Elder Smoot and Elder Grabau happy and relieved after all the orientation, training of the trainers, organizing the transportation, who goes in what vehicle, when and with whom....all is completed.  They don't get much rest when they have six to eight elders in the same apartment.  They make them breakfast for a couple of days, too.  We are grateful for our assistants who take a big load of lifting off of President Roggia.
