Four and one-half Months...

We can't believe that four and a half months have gone by. The time has flown and it's been such a wonderful experience serving a mission in South Africa. We love each and every new experience and feel Heavenly Father's love as we receive inspiration and guidance in accomplishing the assignments we are given. We are learning to go full speed ahead with total trust in the Lord, and it works! It is His work and He helps us every step of the way!

Our newest missionary, Elder Hunt from Samoa. He is going to be such a great missionary!
He was very excited to get to his area and go to work.

Mission Leadership Council (MLC) happened on Thursday. All of the zone leaders gathered to be trained by the APs and President and Sister Dunn. We served lunch first to give the Dunns time to pick up their daughter Emi from the airport. She is here for a 10-day visit. How fun for her to experience MLC while she was here. The APs and other elders set up for us. The missionaries are always willing to help and they come to us and ask if we have anything for them to do. We know they received great training at home and we love their parents for that!   

We rotate the menu and this time it was homemade Sloppy Joes from Sister Dunn and myself, lovely salad from Sister Thompson, and yummy rice krispie treats from Sister Hansen.

Sister Dunn and her beautiful daughter Emi

They look like sisters!

Our awesome APs, Elder Menendez and Elder Malapula


We took a trip to Carletonville today to check on a couple of elders flats. The drive was sunny and beautiful. Everywhere we looked, gardens were growing like crazy.

What a cute lady!

So many of the truck look like Tonka toy trucks. They are awesome!

Elder Kairu, Elder Kwabaisi, and Elder Mdletshe. Their flat was spotless!  
Roadside shops. Goats, sheep and chickens

Mangos, bananas, and peaches are at the roadside markets right now. 

This week beautiful yellow blooms cover the sides of the roads

Cosmos grow wild!

Beautiful vines grow to the tops of the evergreens
