New Assistant, on the road and Liberia

  Elder Priddis is the new assistant.  Elder Smoot leaves next transfer so he is teaching Elder Priddis all he can  in the next five weeks.  
 Elders Tims, Taylor, Ameworlor, Ogama, Njaga and Boateng at the Caldwell Apartment in Monrovia on preparation day.  They had just scrubbed the walls, floors and shelves in their apartment.  They wanted a celestial apartment!
Elder Appleby and a branch missionary (Elder Pabie, Elder Appleby's next companion, was coming from Liberia) Next is Elder Wood and his new companion who he is training, Elder Tawiah, a Ghanian from Qatar.  We met them on the road while we were on our way to Bo last Friday.
Elder Laneri and Elder Obinna serving in Kenema.  Elder Laneri goes home next month too.
At the Liberian border: Elder Chikwendu, Elder Smoot, Elder Priddis and Elder Moss.  The Kirkhams and Kimballs made us all sandwiches when we met for the exchange of missionaries.
Nice picture of  Elder Kimball saying good-bye to Elder Moss at the border.
Sister Kirkham jumped up on the truck to help.  The missionaries loved it.  
The Sister Missionaries all together in the Paynesville apartment in Monrovia on preparation day. They had already cleaned and organized their apartment before we arrived.  Sister Mosery and Sister Jibba are on the right and left of me.  Sister Kirkham and Sister Kimball are on the ends.  Sister Tweh in the green shirt is a returned missionary who served in Nigeria.  She was helping train the new sisters who are pioneering as the first sisters in our mission.  We had a three hour training with them to help get them orientated.
We visited the elders in the Logan Town apartment in Monrovia: Elder Marveh, Elder Ekpo, Elder Raymond and Elder Lambson....all on preparation day.

Elder Hilton and ElderIheanacho at the Kenema Branch chapel. Elder Hilton heads home after two years in four weeks, too.
We had Zone Council at the Kimballs.  Sister Kimball made them some yummy taco soup.  Elder Smoot, Elder Ellsworth, Elder Guzha and Elder Priddis all jumped up and ran (literally) into the kitchen to do the dishes!  What great elders!

Love the picture of Elder Kimball & Elder Moss. Elder Moss loves the Kimballs and will miss them. Glad we live in the same state and in a year they can be reunited!
