Week 56 - June 21st - 27th, 2015

Sunday, June 21st - Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Sort of had a different Father's Day this year.   I was sick and recovering from being 'snarfy' with the symptoms so we only attended Sacrament Meeting.

Melanie and I are both truly blessed to have had wonderful fathers.   We love them and know they are happy and enjoying family life in the spirit world with loved ones.

June 26th was the 89th anniversary of my Dad's birth and now he has been gone for over seven years already.   In some ways it doesn't seem so and in other ways it seems a very, very long time.

So, all in all, beginning with Father's Day a great week!   Very nice to have video calls with the family at home as well.

We got to meet our new Elder Diogo from Uganda.  He is brand new to mission and is Elder Tumarae's companion.  I keep a few balls in the flat and without prompting or encouragement it is never long before they pick them up, hold them, and play with them.  It's fun!

Also, Elder Van Heerden joined Elder Togiatomai as the new ZL.  That makes four Elders all from different countries working here now, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tahiti, and New Zealand.

We had a special lunch with Pres. and Sister Dunn on Friday along with the Winwards.  It is always good to see them and to be with them.   More on this on next week's post.

We had our weekly BB at Seshego with a good group again.  It was a new experience for our two new Elders, Diogo and Van Heerden.  They seemed to enjoy it and we know the kids love to have the young Elders around to play with.

As usual our week would not have been complete without a visit to Brother Jimmy Letsoalo at the care center.   He does as much or more for us as we do for him, I'm sure.
