Last night the ZLs showed us where Sister Thuli and Sister Gertrude live (way off the main road down some very bad dirt roads). We're SO glad we drive a bakkie (truck)!! There were six kids there to greet us and several dogs, including a mother with three cute puppies. We had a great visit with them and will go back next Monday night for FHE. (Sister Thuli is less active but her four kids are always there, as is Sister Gertrude and her son, Menzy. The two other children are Sister Gertrude's grandchildren but her son and the kids are not members.)
Our ZLs flat next to a Nursery with lots of flowering
trees and bushes, including a jacaranda that we see
all over South Africa and Swaziland!
Elder Powell from Auckland, New Zealand
(His mum is Tongan and his dad is British.)
Elder Feliciana from the southern part of Brazil
Elder Smith from Ogden, UT
(who also sat in on my keyboard lesson
and surprised us at the end by playing
"A Hundred Days" that he taught himself
at home before he left)!
Elder Perez from Chicago, who will be going
back home in just 4 more weeks!
Sister Thuli with baby Jaden and her girls
Busiswa "Sim" on the left and Sphesihle and
Snayo on the right with the Zone Leaders before
they left to go to another appointment and left us
to get acquainted. Sister Gertrude came home later
but I didn't get a picture of her or her mother "Gogo",
CUTE baby Jaden
(I forgot his Swazi name...
Many Swazis have an easier nickname besides
their first and last name in siSwati.)
