Encouraged by regional missionary Finda Quiwa to “keep the faith, fight the good fight and continue to trust in God,” seven inmates of the Freetown Female Correctional Center were baptized and confirmed in The United Methodist Church. 
The women led choruses — a practice now very popular among them — before the Rev. Daisy Gbloh conducted the November baptism and confirmation service.
Rejoicing as they celebrated Christ’s presence in their lives, the new confirmands took their first sacrament of Holy Communion.
See the rest of the story. It was a gift to welcome Daisy and Phileas here a couple years back.
