Elder Applegarth Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Sierra Leone Freetown
Spencer recently celebrated his 19th birthday. He said his birthday party included some awesome food that he has no idea what it was. The people of Sierra Leone are so kind to Spencer. They always greet him with a smile. Spencer said Friday’s are an interesting day as most of the people in Sierra Leone are Muslim. They worship on Friday, so the Mosques are full and there are a lot of people praying.
Spencer is excited that he will get to watch a couple of sessions of general conference live. He is really enjoying his area and enjoys living in an apartment with 4 missionaries. He is the only American missionary, his companion is from Ghana and the other two missionaries are from Nigeria.
Spencer continues to get more and more comfortable in Africa. Although, he did tell us this week, he is really grateful for the small fan Kathryn sent him for his birthday.
