Elder Applegarth – October 2017

Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Sierra Leone Freetown

Spencer is still serving in Koidu, Sierra Leone.  He is deep into the jungle, working in a town that is famous for its diamonds.  Spencer and three other missionaries are the first elders to serve in Koidu in this dispensation.  He is excited to have the first baptisms in this small branch.  In October, Spencer is expecting to have 4 baptisms.  With Spencer and his companion and the other companionship that is serving in Koidu, they expect to triple the size of the small branch during October.  The people in Africa continue to be kind and loving to Spencer.  Members and nonmembers alike feed Spencer every night.  He has learned to love rice and whatever they put on top of the rice.  The season is now changing from rainy to dry, which means that it will get hot again.  This week Spencer will travel to another city for Zone Conference.  He will then get to watch General Conference live.  This is the first time he will have the chance to see general conference on his mission.
