Monrovia District Conference

This weekend was the Monrovia District's Conference with President LeGrand Curtis Jr., the Africa West Area President, as their visiting authority.  We were very excited to hear he was coming since Elder Berrett and he had served in the Butler West Stake Presidency together.  Someone from home!  So even though it was not 'our' district's conference, we just had to be there.  We were able to enjoy such a nice visit and dinner with him on Saturday night. Then visit some more as we drove him to the airport to fly back to Ghana on Sunday.

The Conference was wonderful. The building was packed. We had visiting dignitaries - Liberian Government Senators and Representatives. Members even stood outside the opened windows for 2 hours to listen to the meeting. We were so glad we were able to be there.


  1. I can't believe they stood outside the window for 2 hours to hear the meeting. What great examples! I'm so glad you got to see President Curtis.

  2. So great to see President Curtis. I'm glad you got a chance to visit with him. I am so impressed with the members there, 2 hours standing? What great examples to those of us who get to sit on comfy chairs in our beautiful church buildings. I love you Mom & Dad and I am so proud of you.

  3. By the way Mom & Dad you both look so fabulous in these pictures. You must be living right :) Love you
