A Clear Cold Sabbath at the Potchefstroom Branch!

It was another cold morning in Ikageng but 52 dedicated Latter-day Saints came and enjoyed a wonderful fast and testimony meeting, Sunday School, and other classes. The favorite place to go between classes was the courtyard where the sun was warm and comforting. IMG_1223 IMG_1224 IMG_1225

The young single adults gathered together. Sister Ratema seemed to need more than one hymn book. Below sister Thulo stopped for a photo while young Papa Thulo acted like an ostrich and hid his face in his hands as sisters Ncapayi and Williams were walking by.

! August 2015 – We Go to a Party

We were invited over to the Kruger’s home to help celebrate sister Viona Kruger’s birthday. Mary sat out in the back yard and enjoyed the warm sunshine.IMG_1210

Jacque and Shavonne were not at Seminary on Thursday so they got their warm hats today. Blue seems to be their favorite color.

The Ncapayi children were more guests.IMG_1213

President Kwaikwai came to the party and chose a hat for his wife who is away helping a sick relative. He became the braai chef on the fire that I got started thanks to some fire starting sticks and lots of great kindling.

Viona’s mother chose pink while sister Williams bundled up in red and black.IMG_1218 IMG_1219 IMG_1220 end party The group pictures finally includes the birthday girl with her special hat – it was not crocheted by Mary!
