On Thursday, July 20th, while we were in Utah, our South Africa Johannesburg Mission President, Pres. Dane Leavitt, called us and said the country of Swaziland was moved from the Mozambique mission to the Johannesburg mission last weekend and we will now be serving in Swaziland! There are 12 elders in the country, a companionship in each of the six branches. We will be the only senior couple.
We're excited!! We are trying to find out all we can about this new country and our new assignment. It's just a 4 hour drive from Johannesburg, so he said we will be going back and forth from time to time. We will be living in Ezulwini where there is one branch. It's between Mbabane, with two branches, and Manzini, also with two branches. The sixth branch is located in Nhlangano which is an hour and 30 minutes south of Ezulwini.
