Every Sunday is Beautiful in Potchefstroom

Once again we were blessed with great weather as the clouds parted and the yard was filled with sunshine. Before, between and after classes the members gather together to talk, take lots of pictures, and just enjoy the warm sun.

Brother Johannes is the branch mission leader and brother Simon is one of the branch missionaries. A group of YSA were gathered together so I took their picture. Sisters Amo, Ratema, Renny and Lebo are with brothers Omphile and Tinashe. In the middle is brother Ncapayi who is not a YSA but looks right at home among them.

While their mothers were busy planning the Kujane and Williams children played with Mary’s iPad. I was happy to see the youngest Williams granddaughter was more interested in reading her Barbie book than playing with electronics.

However the youth get it naturally as you can see here a group of women gather around to look at all the pictures sister Ratema took today. Sisters Ratema and Kujane pose in the sunshine for one last picture before heading home.
