I want all of you to meet Markus Wallace. Brother Markus is the mission driver and the go-to person for the entire mission. He either knows, or is related, to everyone in Sierra Leone and has contacts in Liberia too! He can fix almost anything and if not, he personally knows someone who can. This mission would be in big trouble without him.
More than that, he is one of the finest men I have ever met. He is a strong, endowed member whose honesty and integrity is well known in all of the areas where the church has members. He is also highly respected in the Freetown community.
If ever a scripture was applicable to one of us: Alma 48:17 would describe Markus (just substitute Markus for Moroni) He is definitely a blessing in our lives. (he has a really cute wife, too - Rose ; there is a picture of her and their girls in an earlier post in June)
