First, On August 21, 2011, Kissy Chapel was dedicated by Elder Joseph Sitati of the Seventy (1st counselor in West Africa Area Presidency). Second, the Freetown District became two: Freetown East and Freetown with new district presidents called. We now have three districts in Sierra Leone. Third, everyone was blessed to receive spiritual instruction from Elder Sitati who presided.
The missionaries helped prepare the programs for Freetown District Conference and also played the keyboard for all the meetings.
We had an Open House the day prior for VIP's. It was well attended with lots of questions answered. Because the Freetown District was so large, we held two District Conferences in separate buildings in Freetown.
