Judy's 61st birthday.
We went to church in Grafton today but only stayed for Sacrament and Sunday School.
We left early to go to downtown Freetown to pick John Buah up and get him to Kossoh
Town for his 3-hour welfare training. We delivered John to Kossoh Town and picked up
the Heckels who attended church and did training in Kossoh Town and delivered them
to our apartment. Then we went back to Kossoh Town and attended the welfare
meeting that Took 4 1/2 hours. It was excellent training. The leaders all got into it and
didn't even want it to end after 4 1/2 hours. We took John back to his hotel in
Freetown and were suppose to have dinner with him at the hotel. But it was close to
8:00 when we got there and much too late to eat because the wait to get food here in
just about any restaurant is 1 hour. That is because most restaurants don't keep food
on hand. When you order, they send someone to buy the ingredients in the market
and you have to wait for them to bring the food back and then for the cook to cook it.
John said one time he ordered fish and he waited well over an hour and asked the
waiter why the wait was so long. His reply was "the fish aren't biting". John left. We
are very tired tonight.
