'Catching the vision of Relief Society'

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone — Relief Society sisters here gathered Oct. 4 for their first women's conference, with the Freetown and Wellington Districts participating. The bi-district conference, with the theme, "Love One Another . . . Catching the Vision of Relief Society," was initially to be a tri-district conference, but because of the cost of transportation, members in the Bo District, 175 miles from Freetown, held a similar conference Sept. 13, with some 200 attending.

Both conferences, with 220 women attending in Freetown, included workshops, a reader's theater and lunch served by priesthood members.
