"How you com in' on?" is a greeting like, 'How are you doing?"
I love how it sounds when a Liberian says it.
I need to start this blog post out by saying "Good Bye!" to Elder and Sister Miles 1 and "Hello" to two new Senior Missionary Couples - Elder and Sister Dever from Washington State who are taking the Miles' place as Humanitarian missionaries and Elder and Sister Ekufu from Nigeria who will be Member Leader Support missionaries like Elder Berrett and I.
We will sure miss the Miles'. They are a fun couple who have worked so hard for the people of Liberia. They've literally changed people's lives with the wells and latrines they've built and the schools and orphanages they've helped. We wish them well as they return home to Hooper, Utah and their family.
Here we all are at the Mission Home after going out to eat Chinese food at the Yellow Flower Restaurant for the Miles' farewell dinner. Wasn't bad Chinese food when you remember that you're in Liberia, Africa!

This weekend was the Bushrod Island District Conference. The chapel in Duala was packed. It was very hot inside and those in the classrooms were not able to hear, BUT everyone reverently stayed for the whole meeting.
This is us with the Bushrod Island District President and his wife -
