Elder Applegarth – September 2018

Sierra Leone Freetown Mission Office Address PO Box 263 Freetown Sierra Leone

Spencer continues to enjoy serving in Moyamba. He is training a new missionary, Elder Hendricks from Seattle. Spencer says Elder Hendricks is a great missionary that has already adjusted to being in Africa, the only adjustment he is still struggling with is the spicy food. In the couple of months Spencer has been in Moyamba, the branch has grown from about 40 active members to about 65 active members. It is exciting to see the church grow and make a big difference in the lives of people in Sierra Leone.

Spencer said the following in his last e-mail:

“As a branch we did a mormon helping hands service project.  It was actually a lot of fun and a lot of people came to help out.  We went to the hospital and cleaned the compound.  We weeded around the compound and picked up all the trash and made the place look nice.  After we were done you could see a lot of people thankful for what we did and talking about the church.  It was fun to see how a little bit of service goes a long way!!”


Spencer has been out 22 months and is looking forward to working hard his last 2 months. What a blessing missionary service has been for Spencer and the Applegarth family.
