Elder Applegarth – April 2018

Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Freetown Sierra Leone

Spencer celebrated his 20th birthday this past month.  Spencer describes his birthday as follows: “I was able to baptize 6 people this week!!! Every time I put them under the water the spirit filled my heart.  It was so amazing to be able to do that for them.  After they came out of the water each one of them looked me in the eyes and said thank you. That is when tears started to roll down my face because all I could think about is my doing the same thing to our Savior one day.  It was truly a humbling experience.  What better birthday present is there?  Then I got to spend some time with my converts and they made my day special for my birthday we had a lot of fun! On Sunday it was also an amazing day as I stood in the circle the spirit filled the room.  After the confirmations the recent converts that I baptized a while ago all got callings!!! It has truly been amazing to see everyone’s progress!!”

Other exciting news for Spencer is that his companion for the past four months finally got his visa, so he is attending the MTC in Provo where he is learning Portuguese.  He will be preparing to serve in Mozambique.  The final elections happen this week in Sierra Leone.  Hopefully democracy continues as a peaceful event there.
