This is a group of sisters at the Bo East District conference in their beautiful outfits. The women here always dress beautifully and colorfully. You rarely see a woman wearing pants. Some of their headdresses are very elaborate and match or coordinate with their dresses and I feel pretty drab next to them.
|They thought Elder Sherwood should be in it too.|
Jestina had me gutting and scaling these small fish for our cooking lesson this week. We made meat pies and "King driver" biscuits which are like a shortbread cookie. You can see them in the pan in the picture below ready to go in the oven.
Here is Sister Sherwood in front of her favorite tree at the mission home in Freetown. The leaves look like a fern and the flowers are stunning and look almost like small orchids.
I loved the leaves on this plant growing under the tree above.
We had a busy two weeks with District Conference, literacy classes, a trip to Freetown for Mission Leadership Council and Temple Trip preparation meetings where we did training both in Bo and Kenema. We also spent time in Dr. offices and Labs with a sick Elder trying to figure out what was wrong and getting him well again. We also delivered generator fuel to all nine missionary apartments and a bed, wardrobe, desk and chairs to one of the sister's apartment to prepare for a new sister coming to Bo this week.
