Week 49 - May 3rd - 9th, 2015

Sunday, May 3rd - Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Navin Mnisi got baptized on Sunday, the third baptism for our Elders and our Group within a month.   Elder Dye and Elder Roberts are wonderful missionaries and are doing great work!

The little boy artist at the Polokwane Chapel, now 11 years old.  Quite a gifted and talented young man!

We had a very nice visit with Doreen Mpaka and her son Oliven and Nephew Phemelo.   She has a son George serving in the Durban mission until October of this year.   Such a faithful sister and mother!   She shared some oranges from her tree with us as well.

I had to get some items frozen from off the top of my pretty bald head this week so I found a new Dermatologist up here in Polokwane, Dr. Moosa, who is now my new Muslim friend.  After the procedure we talked for 20 minutes about religion and sharing truth.   He wanted to give me a Quran so I told him great, I had a Book of Mormon to give him in exchange and then we would both be beneficiaries of our visit today.   He said he wouldn't charge a 'man of God' for the procedure.  I thanked him sincerely and we both agreed that the most important part of our meeting today was not the procedure, but the discussion.   Such a nice experience with my new Muslim brother.

We had what is now becoming our regular and usual wonderful weekly experience with the children and youth of Seshego, none of them members.   We have fun with the BB and now Melanie is having fun with Primary action songs with some of the kids.   She is also teaching them that all of our Missionary black badges have the name of Jesus Christ on them and that when they see a Missionary with one of these badges they can know they are their friend and have a special message for them!

 Melanie is also taking pictures of some of the 'Dr. Seuss-like' trees bushes, etc. which we both find very wonderful and special.  Just wish we could grow some of them back home too!

This week we had a very beautiful and big African full moon.  We can hardly believe how large it seems as it rises in the evening.

On the other hand, we saw what must be one of the smallest, tiny, little lizards hitchhiking on a car we parked next to.  For perspective and scale see the window with the door lock button at the right.

The girls brought us some French's mustard when they came for their visit and we finally got up enough nerve to try having a 'hot-dog' along with some dill pickles Melanie made.   We actually liked it pretty well.

Lastly, I couldn't help but take a picture of this medicine on the shelf at the store while we were grocery shopping.  Sounds like something out of the 1800's, but could it be for a very, very large headache?
