 Visiting the elders' apartment in Kissy District today.  Chico is the guardian of the gate and he was checking me out.
 Chico waiting for a handout.
 Elder Norton introduced Chico to the Book of Mormon, but Chico wouldn't commit.
This is the study area in the elders' apartment.  The place looked like something from a bygone era.  They study by candlelight because they seldom have power.  They have no running water so they catch rainwater in buckets and carry it up to their second floor apartment.  Spartan living!  The young men and women serving here don't complain.  They are constantly on a spiritual high from all of the teaching and baptizing.  It's a great experience to be here.
