To Bo and our Liberia Visit last week!

We traveled to Bo for Leadership Training.
After Leadership Training...
Up before 6 a.m., on the road to Kenema with the assistants.  This is about 7:15 a.m. 
Some huts along the road to Liberia after turning from Kenema
The road was pretty good this time...the rainy season is barely starting.
We arrived in Duala just in time for the finish of Bushrod Island Zone's Super P-day.  The assistants passed out the mail.
Elder Moyo and Elder Lambson...Bushrod Island Zone leaders at Duala Chapel.
Elder Norton's response to long car rides... We talk, listen to CD's, have companionship study, evaluate the visit, have some breakfast/lunch, rest stop or two, and complete assignments during our long drive to and from Liberia. It makes the drive go quickly and richly.
 
Hmmm, Elder Wood, which phone to use?  When we travel to Liberia, the assistants use a Liberian cell phone for local calling.
Taking materials into the chapel for Leadership Training.
After Leadership Training.  We trained on 'Keeping focus on the Fundamentals' of the Doctrine of Christ.  The assistants taught, then we had a lunch that Sister Kirkham prepared and next was President Roggia.  He instructed on the Fundamentals and on Nehemiah.
MTC mates--- happy to see each other.

Keep to the Path...
These trees are so tall...
Hurry little kids...
Bamboo over the road

Wet in parts along the way....
Bumpy but beautiful through the villages and jungle...Most missionaries will ride on this road as we make transfers between Liberia and Sierra Leone. Drove straight through from Monrovia to Freetown...left at 5:50 a.m. and arrived in Freetown at 6:00 p.m.  Will post some Monrovia Zone pictures this week.
