Elder Applegarth – March 2018

Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Freetown Sierra Leone

Spencer is serving in Kontollah Freetown area.  He is working hard and enjoying his mission.  It is fun to see Spencer happy and confident.  Spencer reports that there is an election going on in Sierra Leone right now.  There are several rallies and gatherings in the street.  The missionaries are asked to not get anywhere near any rallies or political gatherings.  Spencer said that people are really excited about the election, which will happen March 7.  He expects to spend the day in his apartment on March 7 and may need to spend several days in his apartment, depending on how the election goes.

Here is an excerpt from Spencer’s e-mail this week:  “ya this election will be pretty crazy … I will for sure not take my vote for granted when I get home.  I can’t even begin to explain how many things I have gained appreciation for back home that a normal US citizen takes for granted.  Like grass, carpet, 24/7 light, a shower, a fridge just simple things like that but man I sure do love it here, my heart goes out to these people for sure!”.  Spencer is teaching several people right now including a 12 year old girl that he just loves.  We are so grateful for the life lessons Spencer is learning.
