We love going to visit friends here. In many parts of the world, the term “investigators” is not used. Instead we have “friends of the church” or “amis de l’eglise” which is perfect. Today we went with the Elders to visit Valerie. I feel like she is my sister and friend. Her husband, Trinita, is a member of our Branch.
Our Elders Quorum President, Romaric Kouakou lives in the same building, downstairs. We stopped by to see him and were lucky to find his brother, Igor Konan in town, just arrived from Senegal. Tomorrow he is leaving for Nigeria for work. We met Igor and his dear wife, Marina, when we were here last year. Both of them served missions in Nigeria, my other home.
