We are out of budget so we are concentrating on finishing up the many
projects we have going. However the 14-stall toilet at the PMB Bus
Stop has not started yet and I just finished writing the contract for the
200 tables/benches for the schools in Kenema. When those are
completed, we will be out of projects for this year. We are beginning
writing up projects for 2018 for the couple that will come in after us.
They will get a new budget January 1.
Don will be going to Kenema and BO next week to do an evaluation on
58 wells we have put in in the provinces. The roads are nothing but
huge pot-holes (they call them pit-falls) and this is the raining season.
Those pot-holes are now full of water and you cannot tell how deep
they are. Don is going to hire an okada (motorcycle) to take him
around. An okada can go around most of the pot-holes. I am going to
stay at the Mission Home for the week except for one night. I have
been asked to teach the Temple-Prep class to the Kossoh Town District
Presidency and 8 Branch Presidencies. Of the 8 Branch Presidents only
2 have been to the Temple. The other 6 are return missionaries but all
served missions when there was not a Temple in Africa so they did not
have a chance to go to the Temple. I am thrilled to be given a chance to
teach. This is the first time since I have been in Sierra Leone that I have
been asked to teach. They really want the natives to do the teaching.
That is how they will learn. I really miss teaching.
