Tuesday, March 4, 1930
Conakry, Africa

5:00 a.m. We are up dressing ready for our trip up country.
6:30 a.m. On the train and moving out of the station. The scenery is beautiful. Coconut palms, mango, and orange trees in every direction as we leave Conakry.

The first few miles is level country, but soon we are in the hills, mountains in every direction all the way from Conakry to Mamou—a distance of about 180 miles. We travel through the mountains. Mr. Roseberry, Ruth his little daughter Helen Luce, Miss Geigler, and Mis Abramhamson met us at the train when we arrived at 5:30 p.m. They certainly gave us a royal welcome to Mamow. This is where our school for the children of our missionaries is located. Miss Geigler is the teacher.

Mamow, Africa

7:30 a.m. Breakfast. African cereal and oranges. Good home made bread sever with butter and guava jelly and coffee. Richard took some picture then left about nine o’clock with Mrs. Watkins for Delebar and Lolly. The former is our Missionary Rest Home and the other Mrs. Watkin’s station among the Foulah tribes.

Dinner 11: a.m. Rested until 2:00 p.m. Miss Geiger took me for a good drive all over the town of Mamow and I enjoyed the view of the native town. After supper we all sat around the table and visited while Mr. Rosebury and Mr. Rupp had a service with the nationals. Only a few came but one man prayed for Himself. Praise the Lord!
