P-Day Soccer Game

Elder Ngobi arranged a soccer game for the missionaries as part of their
P-Day activities. I thought P-Day stood for Play Day but I was
corrected and told it is Preparation Day. Not sure how soccer plays into

It was a community affair. It involved the missionaries from
several districts, members from the Duala Branch and the community.
Lots of people showed up to play 1 1/2 hours late - Mormon standard time
coupled with African time. Vendors came to sell water, treats and
homemade food. It truly was a party. The game was played on a
regulation size field with goal posts cemented in the ground and a
referee with a whistle. This was serious. The field as you can see in
the pictures was dirt, weeds and pretty rough.

There were tons of children watching and waiting to get out on the field
at half time and at the end.

Not sure who won but everyone had a great time!!
