A West African Diary

From the January 1992 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Like a personal letter, a journal tends to be informal, direct, and spontaneous. Someone keeping a journal quickly jots down thoughts and impressions and then moves on to the next day. And when someone shares his journal with us, we have the feeling of traveling with the writer. We feel the immediacy of what the writer is seeing. We share in his first impressions of people and places. And, most important of all, we see something of what he felt the need to pray about and why.

"This is a region where many spiritually hungry people are finding the open doors of The Mother Church."

That's how Warren Bolon, of the Clerk's Office, sums up the myriad impressions he brought home from a recent trip to West Africa where he met with branch church members and new groups. The following are excerpts from Warren's journal:
