Milton Margai School for the Blind

Freetown District service project for the blind school. Over 200 members of the Freetown District of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints gathered this morning to give service to the residents of the Milton Margai School for the blind. We washed walls and floors; cleaned bathrooms and bedrooms; picked weeds and trash; had a hair salon for the girls and a barbering shop for the boys. After the service the residents of the school sang for the church members and then the District Choir sang "I am a Child of God" and the missionaries sang "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief". The District presented the school with a donation of clothing and other personal items for their use. It was a good day and we felt like we had really given some welcome service and created a bond of friendship with the school. President Swaray would like to see the district schedule this as an annual event.
