First Meeting in the new Kissy Chapel Today

The building and grounds looked like this in January.  It has three pods on each side of the chapel for classrooms, bathrooms and font.  We had to smile because no one could "walk the halls" because there are no halls.  This is the first of its kind in Sierra Leone and Liberia.
 This is what it looked like today. We will have an open house and dedication in August.  We had 174 in the congregation for the Kissy 2 Branch Sacrament Meeting.  Kissy 1 Branch was gathering as we left. Yesterday, the missionaries used the new font for eight baptisms.  We are so happy to have it open!  It is a great blessing for the Saints here in Freetown.
