Service Projects, Baptisms, and More

Sister Missionaries working hard 
Bo East and Bo West Zones after finishing about three hours of brushing grass and weeds at the Government Hospital for their Christmas Service Project.
We came back to the Njaboima Chapel and played water balloon volleyball.

Poor President Roggia had a little bit of a challenge getting his companion to hang on to the towel!  Drat!  Lost both of them and we were so close too!
The Freetown East and West Zones went to the hospital and sang Christmas Carols to the patients.  The nets cover the patients during the night.  Some are on the floor with a mat and some are fortunate to have a bed.
The missionaries said it was a wonderful experience for them to share Christmas with those in the hospital.
We see lots of children playing with wheels and a stick.
A baptism (Elder Taylor) in Sierra Leone (thanks to his family for the pretty photo)
 Baptism in Harbel, Liberia

 Freetown baptisms
New members in Freetown
Baptismal candidates at Sinkor, Liberia.   Our purpose as missionaries is to: "Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end."
Oh, Elder Priddis, we work you too hard! He was totally snoozing on our way back from Liberia a couple weeks ago.
 Elder Wood shows how he and Elder Priddis spend the night while on the road.  They always take their net.  Hopefully there is an extra mattress or blanket.  Absolutely no complaints from them-- ever.
