From Convert to Missionary

This is a road in the community of Caldwell. We are on our way to pick up Ansu Kamara and take him to Roberts International airport to fly to the MTC in Ghana, Accra. Ansu joined the Church in December 2010. He is the only member of our Church in his family. He received a testimony from reading the writings of Isaiah in the Book of Mormon.
This water well is about a 10 minute walk from Ansu's house. It was placed here a few years ago by LDS Charities. We are driving around the well and then to the right to get to Ansu's house. This is where Ansu's family gets all their water.
The neighbors came to say good-bye to Ansu. Ansu is 23 years old. He just graduated from high school, which is a requirement to be able to go on a mission. He was able to pay his high school fees because the school gave him a scholarship to play basketball. Otherwise, it would have been extremely difficult for him to finish high school.
