Bo Sierra Leone District Temple Trip 2012

The bus for the temple trip is scheduled to depart at 10 am.  We arrived about 8:45 am and already half the members going were waiting in the district building parking lot.  It will be a long trip of 6 to 7 days of travel, scheduled to arrive at the Accra Ghana Temple next Monday, 15 October 2012.

During today Mission President Roggia will also be conducting missionary interviews that are scheduled to start at 9 am. Here are some of the missionaries who have just arrived from Kenema, about an hour drive to the East.  The missionaries told us that they had dropped off another passenger from Kenema riding with them just a few houses back.

Here is the youngest traveler to the temple to be sealed to her father and mother.

Rolandson is 8 years old today.  That means that for him to be sealed to his parents he needs to be baptized and needs to have a limited-use recommend.  He will be baptized in the font at the Accra Ghana Temple and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the temple.  Then he will join his parents and be sealed to them for time and eternity.  Rolandson is going to have one very unique experience!
