"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

Last Sacrement Meeting in Sada

Today was testimony meeting and we enjoyed the opportunity to stand and bear our testimony to all the saints at Sada.  We have truly enjoyed the time spent here.  In fact, there is more than a little bit of reluctance on our part in contemplating our departure.

During Primary and Young Men/Young Women Sister Thomas passed out the toothbrushes that Trisha had donated and which we brought back from the United States.  The Primary children were very pleased and were grateful.  The Young Men and Young Women looked at the gift and wondered for a minute. Then Sister Thomas told them that we wanted to remember their wonderful smiles so if they brushed everyday, we would be able to come back and see their smiles again some day.  You can see Sister Thomas beginning to pass them out to the Primary Children.  They were also supposed to say, “Mdingumntwana ka Thixo” while looking in the mirror and brushing.  That is “I am a Child of God in Xhosa.  Soso Mpinda wanted a picture with us.

Sister Xalabile claimed that she wonders if the church is really true to have us go to the office in Cape Town.  We explained that we are moving to East London and what we will be doing and she better understood.  We will still be in the area, we are just responsible for more missionaries and a larger area,  at least for a while until the next couple arrives in the mission.
