A Visit to Rose’s Compound

My dear friend, Rose, lives in a village called Bankoni.  Today we stopped there to drop of her girls and to visit.  I love to visit my friends in their homes.  It helps me to know them and love them better.

Rose and her family moved into this compound about 5 months ago.  They have been busy making it their home.

Rose and her family attend the Group in N’Gomi.  Rose and her girls have been  members of the church since 2017.  Her husband, Ibrahima was baptized in 2018.

When we arrived, Rose put out a big meal for all of us.  What a kindness!  She served us maize balls with okra sauce or rice with a green leaf sauce.

Rose’s modern kitchen was in a separate building in the compound.

After dinner, Pres Sekou and Elder Lewis met with Rose and her husband for a couple of hours.  Elder Usoh and I had a nice long visit and we took a few walks around the neighborhood.

Here is Rose’s store, just a few minutes away:
