Bo East Zone and Bo West Zone Conferences

Prior to Bo East Zone Conference: Elder Despain, Elder Wootten and Elder Adah
Teach People Not Lessons and Finding.... takes practice
Elder Tawiah
Elder and Sister Schlehuber, our senior couple in Bo.  They let us spend the night with them in the "Schle Chalet" ... and the dining is superb!  We love them and appreciate all the training they are doing for the District and Branches.
President Roggia and Elder Richards greeting each other.
Getting ready for Leadership Training
These feet walk 1,300,000 kilometers in two years and shake 30,000 hands. (Estimates from our medical adviser Elder Fife) 
The Schlehuber's "backyard".  Look at those coconuts! The Zone Leaders live in the same compound. This is the kitchen for them (door and six round windows).  They cook on a propane stove and then go into the green apartment to sit at the table.

Elder Stott and Elder Iheanacho, Bo East Zone Leaders.  This is the entrance into their apartment. I thought it looked pretty.
This is a flour "floor mat" cloth that the Schlehubers use .... from Belgium.
Sister Schlehuber makes peanut butter cookies and hands them out the "window" to the Elders.  They, in return, pass coconuts through the portal in trade.
Practice Teaching People Not Lessons and Finding in the Bo West Zone
Such great missionaries... we love them all.  We are constantly in awe of the sacrifices and time they give to help others find joy.
Bo West Zone Conference
I'm coming!  I'm coming!  The Assistants had to come and get me because I was dawdling . lol  Time to drive back to Freetown. It was a hot day.
Laying the mangoes out to ripen...
Boys coming home from school...
Truck along the way.
Carrying produce to the market...
Wood to make charcoal
