On the Walk from the Hotel to the Utah Alliance Compound

2019-11-25 Ouelessebougou (1)

We left this hotel this morning with our few things and a gift box for an Elder in the Abidjan West Mission and we walked through the back roads of town to the Alliance compound which is near the new hospital.

Here are some typical sights from this town we love:

Arriving at the Ouelessebougou Alliance compound (they call it the Utah Alliance here).

We were greeted by our very dear friends, Anounou and Teningnini.  They are our Alliance staff in Ouelessebougou and we love them.  We’ve been coming here to work with them for years.

The Alliance is adding on!  This new wing in the compound is being built now.

There were 23 beds with nets set up for the doctors and the medical team.

The power in Ouelessebougou has been off, so Anounou has filled many buckets and barrels with water to get the team through the week if needed.  This is the bathroom:

After having a granola bar for breakfast, we headed to the hospital to join the team.  We only spent today here, returning on a public bus to Bamako late this afternoon.  The medical team is staying until Saturday.  What a gift they give each year to the people of this area!
