Missionary Apartments

We were very surprised at how nice our apartment was when we first came to Yaoundé.  The missionaries' apartments are also very nice--although not quite as nice as the senior couple's.  One mother of a prospective missionary wasn't sure she wanted him to go on a mission, because the living conditions he'd experience as a missionary would be so much better than he'd had growing up.  That's very true in many instances.  Here are photos of our two apartments for the elders; one is in Bastos and the other is in Ekounou.

Don't you love their ingenuity?  Water bottles as supports for their shoe racks!  (You definitely need to store water here--it's off frequently!)

Notice the shower has no separation from the rest of the floor--the drain is on the same level.
