Today we met our two new elders from Johannesburg who will be serving here!
They arrived from Johannesburg late last night.
Elder Souza is from Fortaleza, Brazil and is right out of the MTC! He will be continuing to learn English with his companion, Elder Mtyobile, in Ngwane Park Branch, Manzini.
Elder Chikoore, our new zone leader in Ezulwini with Elder Smith (below), is from Zimbabwe. He will complete his mission October 9th and Elder Smith on October 30th.
Our updated wall... We have had 35 different elders serve with us in Swaziland in only 10 1/2 months! (That is a LOT, considering that none of those 10, that have been here in that time, from the Mozambique Mission, can serve in Johannesburg because they cannot get South African visas, except from their home countries! )
These trees with totally bare branches, all of the sudden have
beautiful bright red flowers all over them but no leaves!
And these now have bright orange blooms on top!
I LOVE the trees and plants here!!
This looked like a rose bush until I got closer to take a picture.
These pretty, red flowers are SO different!
We drove out to Malkerns on Saturday. I LOVE the scenery there.
Yesterday, I sewed up the last five YW book holders for our branch YW.
There were a few who couldn't come when we had the sewing class and the girls made them and three more girls (two are being baptized on Sunday) have come into YW in the past couple of weeks!) The sewing machine was NOT working, but with lots of faith and prayer.... I was able to finish them all! (Then the machine completely quit!)
