Mefou Primate Park - 2

We have a new group of Elders, so once again, we visited the Primate Park.  It takes us 1 1/2 hours to get there.  Elder and Sister Gailey, from Douala, were visiting us and agreed to stay an extra day to help us transport all 10 Elders.  We had a nice visit and ate a picnic lunch, then returned home.  The Mefou Primate Park spans about 800 hectares  so we get a nice walk in.  They even take us through the jungle to see cocoa trees and ebony trees.  We really are in the jungles of Africa.  Enjoy these pictures.


E. S. Whitesides, E. Masse, E. Gailey, E. Rambeloson, S. Gailey, E. Hoiland, E. Hatch, E. Schmid, E. Davis, E. Lundberg, E. McGrath, E. Addington, E. Johnston.
We love these Elders!

An Ebony Tree.  I can just feel those piano keys.

Just had to add this picture of the sandwiches for lunch since it seems like fixing food for Elders is a huge part of our mission.  I was glad Sister Gailey was there to help me.  23 tuna and 5 peanut butter for those who don't like mayo!  We aim to please.


  1. That's a lot of food!! Africa is so beautiful. I love how green it is. Those monkeys are so cute!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking such good care of our sons. I feel great peace knowing that there are people like you and Elder Whitesides who are willing to be a stand-in for me while my son is serving the Lord in Africa.
