"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

Senior Couples meet at Grahamstown for a few hours

Today we take the opportunity to travel to Grahamstown so we can attend the Grahamstown Festival.  The other Senior missionaries in the area are also able to drive and join us for the day.  I wish I could say this was our idea but the first suggestion came from the Blatters. 

We were able to walk though some of the art displays and then we went through all of the tents where the venders were selling all their South African wares.

We met up with the other couples and had a bit of lunch at the food venders and then just sat around and talked until we reacquainted ourselves.  It was a delight to be able to learn more about the couples that are serving in the mission with us.  It was also special to have an adult conversation as well.

We saw the Silcock's and Blatter's take a ride in a donkey drawn cart. 

You can see clockwise around the circle as follows beginning with Sister Thomas then Sister Blatter, Elder Chase, Elder and Sister Silcock, Sister Chase, Sister Gardner, Sister and Elder Wheeler, Elder Gardner and Elder Blatter.  Yes that is me behind the glass!
