Pictures: The Apartment in Abidjan


  1. I am so impressed with what is in their fridge! Lots of veggies, yeah! And it looks so clean! I love the picture at the top of the blog! Elder Halvorsen looks great! What is the name of the other American missionary?

  2. Marilyn, the other elder is actually from France. His name is Elder Francois Ghisquire. And yes, I, too, was amazed with all the fresh produce in their fridge!
