Cho, Gabby, Sister Clawson, Santos (our tailor) and I spent the morning shopping for material in a wonderful market in downtown Freetown. Santos advised us on all kinds of things: what was good quality, what was too hot for Africa, what colors went together best, etc. Cholena bought about 12 pieces of material and Santos is going to make some clothes for her to take home to her family and friends.
Sister Clawson and I both fell in love with the same piece of material and decided to get
matching skirts made. My top will be a dark pink and her's will be a beautiful shade of
purple. We have an Apostle and 2 other General Authorities coming in September and
for some reason everyone having a new dress to wear is the thing to do. I don't get it.
