"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

Final Testimonies of Elders Shongwe and Palelei and Dinner at the Thomas'

We have invited the Queenstown Elders over tonight so that we could hear the departing testimonies of Elder Shongwe and Elder Palelei.  They would normally be given the opportunity to do this in a Zone Conference but the timing did not work out for them.

It was the thoughtfulness of the Zone Leaders, Elder Henderson and Elder Murphy along with Elder Ah-fua (Elder Palelei’s son) who came up with this plan.  Sister Thomas made a large pot of stew and bread rolls so that we could feed all of them.  You can see them appreciating the meal.

The Elders’ final testimony was very special.  I wish that the parents of these missionaries could have been in the background so that they could hear these powerful testimonies.  We wish these two Elders well as they depart this coming Wednesday to spend a day at the Mission Home and then fly home on Thursday.  We are grateful for their influence in our lives.
