We had the 3rd Annual District Conference over the weekend. President and Soeur Jameson weren't able to come, so they send President Kola, the 2nd Counselor in the Mission Presidency. He stayed in our apartment, which was another adventure. He only speaks a little English, so there wasn't a lot of conversation going on. We did learn that he has 12 children and was a former member of the Area Seventy.
The Africans are very obedient, so wherever Sister Jameson's name was on the program, they would switch it to Sister Whitesides. I ended up speaking in every meeting. I kept telling them to just skip it, but they wouldn't do it. On Sunday, President Bala said afterwards, "I didn't tell you, because I wanted you to be surprised." Here are a few pictures.
