A glorious day.
We went to Kossoh town District Conference and were able to hear District President
Sesay, President and Sister Clawson and Elder and Sister Davies speak.
District President Sesay talked about the 5 most important days in his life. The first one
was the day he met his wife. A very important beginning to his talk. Marriage

important thing to him was shocking to the natives. One day a Stake Priesthood leader
walked into a ward PEC meeting late. He took his seat and was shocked at the topic of
discussion. They were discussing how many times a week is it appropriate to beat your
wife. Families do not sit together at church and an outsider has no idea who the
marriage partners are and who the children belong to. Everyone is scattered
throughout the congregation. President Sesay's 5 most important days all centered on
his family. Excellently done!
