Another day at Conference. It is fascinating being there, getting to know everyone and seeing for ourselves what they are passionate about and how they run ther affairs. It was a packed day yesterday with reports from the schools and churches and various Connexional groups. We also had a talk from the Dean at Freetown Cathedral – an hilarious man. We didn’t follow everything he said – catching the Krio when spoken in a large church isn’t always straightforward. He was certainly very well taken by the delegates and ministers.
After the day’s sessions, we managed to take a quick walk before returning for a meeting with our agents and Reuben. This was very good – it is extremely hard to maintain a proper relationship by email. We were able to talk over a number of important issues face to face. They are all in their different ways great people.
The day finished with an evening communion service. This was a very formal affair with Anglican style liturgy and hymns. Enjoyable, but we were also very releived to get back to our beds (around midnight after we had had a bite to eat).
