Last Week in Liberia

New missionaries arriving from the Ghana MTC straight to Monrovia, Liberia last week:  Elder Pentreath from the UK.
Elder Nabende from Uganda
Elder Dlamini from South Africa
Elder Kouao from Ivory Coast
Elder Sekirimie from Uganda
Elder Oni from Nigeria
Elder Mohlalutsa from South Africa

New missionaries on their way to their first area to meet their trainers.  Always a nervous moment!
Elder Moyo and Elder Buckman--Bushrod Island zone leaders prior to Elder Moyo going home the next day.
Elder Moyo's Farewell Dinner with the Senior Couples and us the night before he flew home to Zimbabwe.
A Branch Missionary from the Harbel Branch receiving his mission call to Nigeria.  He is the first from his branch to serve a full-time mission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sister Kirkham and I.
Elder Smith and Elder Liufau sporting their umbrellas for the rainy season.
So fun...
Elder Appleby, Iyiewuare and Obinna...
Elder Buckman...delighted to have received some mail.
Sweet children... the little boy was just learning to walk.  We smiled at his huge shoes.  He was doing great mastering being mobile!
 She is just such a little angel!
Elder Appleby letting her look at his umbrella.  I like how his umbrella isn't on the floor yet and her little hand is reaching for it....
 Bushrod Island Zone
Elder Smith..."just singing in the rain" (he didn't see that I took this)
 On the way to the Sierra Leone border from Monrovia.  Elder Kirkham got to use his automatic tire pump.
Making the exchange at the border. Of course, the truck with the most mud came from the Sierra Leone jungle road.

Elder Anderson and Elder Ekpo after Elder Anderson came across the border.
Elder Taylor with the Branch Missionary he is training.  (It was hot out...)
 I asked Elder Boakye why he had on green socks.  He said it was Green day with his family at home.  Don't you love it?
This is for you Br. Barguwah... With Elder and Sister Krumm.
Back to Freetown via Accra after 10 days in Monrovia.
