We had the Freetown Zone conference today. The pictures aren't the best but at least you get to see your missionary.
Preparing to take pictures
I usually take three pictures of the Zones. That way I have at least one that turns out. The first two formal ones didn't turn out and the third, I usually say "do whatever you want---but nothing radical" This was the only picture that turned out...the others were blurry... As you can see, this was the third one... :-)

Love these missionaries...
We had a great Freetown Zone Conference with wonderful instruction by the Assistants and President Roggia. We also discussed the missionary handbook in detail. Tomorrow is Freetown East Zone Conference and will post those pictures in the afternoon.
View from the airplane as we left the Freetown Airport in Lungi to Accra, Ghana last week. When new missionaries arrive and missionaries return home after two faithful years, this is what they see.

Wow! A First in Monrovia! A brand new stop light that is working and cars are stopping for it! It is the only stop light in Liberia. We see old, beat up, non functioning ones but this is new and functions...and is obeyed! Love it!
