Elder Applegarth Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Sierra Leone Freetown
The highlight for the month of May for us as a family was speaking with Spencer at Mother’s day. At Christmas time, we spoke with Spencer for about 20 minutes. At Mother’s day, we spoke with Spencer for about 1 hour 45 minutes. We even got to speak to Spencer’s Mission President. It was so fun to listen to his stories and hear his testimony. At the end of our conversation, it was hard to hang up. Lots of tears were shed, tears of missing each other, but also tears of joy for the growth we are all experiencing. It was fun for all of us to recognize the spiritual growth Spencer has had and also the blessings our family has received from Spencer’s missionary service.
Spencer continues his service in Waterloo, this is his third transfer in Waterloo. He loves the branch and the people have been so nice and kind to Spencer. He continues to have a lot of success as the people in Africa are ready for the gospel. Not many of the saints in the Waterloo branch have had the opportunity to attend the temple. I asked Spencer if the Branch President has been endowed. Spencer indicated that he had not yet because it was too expensive to get to the temple. The branch has been saving money for a group of them to go to the Accra Temple in Ghana. Spencer continues to point out how blessed we are here in Sanpete.
