Week 45 - April 5th - 11th, 2015
Easter Sunday, April 5th to Saturday, April 11th, 2015
Although this is Easter Sunday, we hold church at our group until DVD's can be prepared for our members to watch together. This will be two sessions per Sunday beginning on April 19th and will continue every other week. Sort of delayed, but we've caught much of the info already and have been able to listen by computer to a few of the talks as well. A great General Conference!
Anyway, back to Easter. We enjoyed the weekend visit of Ben and Jill from the Area. We had a great time for these few days both at the Seshego township and around the area to a couple of other fun places. They are winding down now in their last three months. We were happy they could come up and enjoy some of the Seshego members and people with us! And a very nice Easter dinner Melanie prepared for us and the Elders.
A first time event hardly worth mentioning, but I did have to have a tire repaired, seems like I picked up a nail somehow and it took a few days of slow leaks and getting to an open shop after the Easter weekend to get it repaired finally. We are thankful so much to have reliable transportation while we're here on our mission.
We had a special 'payday' trip to Joburg to the temple this week. We were able to join our group mission leader, Thabong, while he received his temple endowment. It was great to be with him. He had also prepared the names of his deceased mother and her parents so they all have now been blessed with the temple ordinances and covenants. He was so happy, as were we. It was our privilege to teach him the temple preparation lessons over the last month.
And as usual we got to finish up our week with our Saturday visit to Jimmy at the care center. He is such a blessing to us, we love him.
