Sunday, October 11th - Saturday, October 17th, 2015
Another week that was unusual but yet typical of our mission life here. The usual tons of phone messages, emails, calls, etc. to deal with. A lost cell phone to replace in Tzaneen, a front door lock to have replaced in Pretoria, a car not properly serviced by the Elders (oil was like sludge in the engine) that needs a new crankshaft. Weather from extremely hot to quite cool with a powerful storm that took out electricity. Some good times with visits and with our weekly basketball. Concluded the week with our final quarterly Zone Conference over the mountain in Tzaneen.
|Voting day this Tuesday in South Africa, by absentee ballot. Had to support Cody in his campaign for Riverale City Council. Mail delivery varies from unreliable to non-existent so we had to have these sent back and forth with DHL courier's.|
|Sheets on the line, just like old times. Melanie took this picture because it reminded her of her mother's laundry. Many people use clotheslines to dry things, some because they lack options, some because it helps keep the heat out of the flat.|
|Elders always get excited when it's lunch time at Zone Conference. Today the Butler's and the Campbell's fixed a tasty lunch, chicken enchaladas, with rice and salad.|
|Melanie made the Zone Conference break treats, gingerbread Elders and Sisters along with some apples. Very, very good and everyone liked them and gobbled them right up.|
After all the Zones had their conferences and Sister Wilson forwarded the pictures from the other zones I compiled them onto this collage of our five zones in the whole Botswana/Namiba Mission. This is us, all of us!
