While the attendance was still low because of members being away during the holidays, the spirit was high. There was no long silent periods during testimony time. The members felt the spirit of Easter as they bore strong testimonies of the Savior and atonement. Elder Barton in the gray suit got to meet many of the members for the first time. Our dear friend Bongani Buti was home for the holidays and we are always happy to see him. Here is talking to sister Thato and Evelyn Kujane.
When I took this picture of sister Kujane and Bongani I did not notice sister Thulo in the background. I got a better picture of her later. These two you men wandered around during the last two hours. I do not think the one fishing caught much. Mary plays for sacrament, primary and relief society. It is wonderful to hear the children sing. Brother Andries Louw is teaching David Rampai about MLS – David is our new executive secretary. Sister Brummer is one of the oldest member of the branch – not just in age but in membership. However she does not like to get her picture taken so I have to either sneak up on her or get someone else to be in the picture.
Â Sister Neo – the YW president – is in both of these pictures. She does quite well picking out tunes on the keyboard while waiting for her ride home. It was a great day in the Potchefstroom branch. I had the opportunity to teach Priesthood because all of the elder quorum presidency was out of town.
