(French for: "This is Africa") A common term used by the missionaries when they want to express "thats just the way it is because "THIS IS AFRICA"! ie..."the power went out..AGAIN... C'est Afrique...or sometimes denoted as TIA...This Is Africa!!)) Elder Halvorsen has been serving a full time mission since January of 2009 in the Ivory Coast, Abidjan West Africa Mission.

Getting Transferred, A letter from the Bailey's and one last picture with the Zone

Dear Halvorsen family,

We just wanted to send you some photos of your son leaving for Benin. He is with all of the new missionaries that arrived on Tuesday, and with Elder Ghisgueire (from France) who will be going with him to Benin today. They were pretty excited!! Thanks for your dear son. His French is wonderful and he has a great attitude about sharing the gospel with everyone, so please know that he is such a valuable part of the Ivory Coast team.

Elder and Sister Bailey
