We had a wonderful Africa Southeast Area Conference broadcast today at 10 a.m. at our Ezulwini Branch.  Those who spoke were Elder Neil L. Anderson, Elder Tad R. Callister, Sister Bonnie Oscarson, Elder Kevin Hamilton (our Area Pres. and a former counselor in the ASEA Presidency) and Elder Carl B. Cook (who was the Area Pres. when we were in Ethiopia). We LOVED meeting both Elder Hamilton and Elder Cook in Ethiopia in 2014 and visiting with them. Great men! It was VERY good and just what the saints here needed to hear. Ü  (No photo...) 

counted 77 at Church today!! There were MANY less actives and investigators there! That is SO exciting for us!  (I gave all the Primary kids "Choose the Right" stickers that Julie sent to get them excited about their Primary Presentation next Sunday!)

We have visited a few craft shops this week to get some souvenirs for our family that we plan to send in a little Christmas package.  I had to take more photos! It's just SO much GREENER now and we are JUST beginning the rainy season!!

I just LOVE giraffes and these stools are SO cute! 
Wish I could fit one in my suitcase to take home...
They are at the "blue roof shops".

These are the "blue roof shops" as we call them. There are about 
120 shops that form a rectangle.  (The blue roofs are in the back 
and can be seen from the road.) It has taken us 3 or 4 visits in the
past 2 1/2 months to visit all of them.  They are pretty much all the
same, but have a few different things in different shops. The Swazi
people are VERY creative and make beautiful things!

Some scenery when we drove to Malkerns....

These just don't do it justice... : / 

A sight we see EVERYWHERE....clean clothes hanging on the line! 

Some homes in Malkerns...

I don't know what kind of trees these are but the monkeys
love them and they have the most interesting seed pods
hanging from them... They are at the Matenga shops.
(All of these shops are in Ezulwini not far from our flat!)

This cute shop owner at Matenga let me take a picture of her
fun braids! (The sides were even cooler...but they 
don't really show in the photo.)
