 Some more pictures driving in Freetown.  The top picture is how they carry things here.  They carry all kinds of things.  These men are really strong that push and pull these carts.  One day we saw one carrying a metal frame and there was at least 6 guys  pushing and pulling.  They go right in traffic and we have to go around them. 
 This is on our way to church one day.  These people were running and spread out in the road.  We had no choice but to follow them.  We followed them for a while and then a guy waved us around them.  He had been watching the traffic coming towards us and it was clear so Brent drove in that lane and we were able to pass them.  That kind of thing happens a lot here. 
 This picture is of our Primary at Upgun the week before Christmas.  We usually have about 10 to 15 children attend.  In the beautiful gold dress on the right is Fatmata Conteh, who is the 2nd counselor in the Primary Presidency and has only been a member a few months.  We talked about the birth of Jesus and colored a picture of the Manger scene.  Fatmata is such a beautiful lady, I love her clothes.  The young women at the back on the left is 14 and she is the only YW in the Branch, so she comes to Primary.  Her name is Josephine and she and I have become fast friends.  Fatmata and I are also good friends.  For Christmas she gave me some beautiful fabric and a fish dinner that she had prepared.  She is as beautiful inside as she is outside. 
 These 2 pictures were on Christmas day.  Josephine is on the left in the hat and Fatmata is in the middle with the beautiful ivory dress.   I wanted a picture with Brent and I and members of our Branch.  The bottom picture you can see Brent is on the left and if you look close you can see my face in the middle.  They all just came in close around me.  What a great group of people.  The man on the right front is Brother Emmanuel Kunduor, a counselor in the Branch Presidency. 

These 4 are siblings and sat in front of us for Sacrament Meeting.  You can see behind them there aren't many people there yet.  This was about 10 minutes before the meeting started.  We had a pretty good group attend by the time the meeting was over.  Some even came with only about 10 minutes left.  I love these people.
