Kenema is now a District!

Last Saturday and Sunday, the 24th and 25th of November the Bo Sierra Leone District held its district conference. Saturday was leadership training in the morning and a combined session in the afternoon.  Then Sunday prior to viewing the Regional Conference broadcast the members in Bo sustained a new second counselor in the district presidency.  Then in the afternoon we hurried to Kenema where the members there sustained their new district president, his counselors and a number of the new auxiliary leaders.

After the members in the new Kenema District viewed the Regional Conference broadcast, the new district presidency set apart the auxiliary leaders who had earlier been sustained.  New Church handbooks had just been delivered a couple of days prior so we had them to hand out and took a few minutes to review a few key chapters relevant to their new callings ... and especially the chapter "Callings in the Church" since several present would still be recommending their counselors and likewise teaching the branch auxiliaries from the handbook.

When the district's first district council meeting ended, we took this picture of the following individuals.
