Elder Applegarth – Feb 2017

Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Sierra Leone Freetown

This month has been a productive month for Elder Applegarth.  He has experienced some baptisms, and has enjoyed working with his trainer, Elder Rowley in the Lumley Ward in Freetown.  Last week Spencer was transferred to the Callaba Branch in Kissy.  He was nervous to go to a new area, but so far he seems to enjoy the new challenge.  His new companion Elder Sigonyela has been out about a month longer then Spencer, he is from South Africa.  Spencer reports that the living conditions in Kissy are little more primitive then Lumley.  His shower still consists of using a five gallon bucket, but now he needs to catch the water from his shower to use for flushing the toilet.  Spencer has always loved a good camping trip and seems to be enjoying the two year camping trip he is on now.  It is really fun to read Spencer’s e-mail, the growth in all aspects of his life are obvious.  We especially love the part where he keeps telling us what good parents we are.  This is a new idea to him and we’re loving it.
