"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

A Loose Bed Leg and A Hair Cut

When we finished dinner we had to go and give Elder Loomis a haircut.  While we were there visiting it came to light that Elder Shabalala had a problem where one of the legs of his bed was very loose.  It became clear that, on occasions, this loose leg might reach up and hold Elder Shabalala in his bed in the morning for a few minutes past 6:30.  As a result, I brought out my tools and wood glue and we glued this leg of the bed in very solid.  I showed him that it is now impossible for this leg to reach out and grab him so he will not have any problem rising at 6:30.  This is Elder Shabalala pointing to the loose leg that had such mysterious power over him as his companion, Elder Mongalo, looks on rubbing his chin not quite knowing how to take this sad story from Elder Shabalala.  Both are good Elders striving to do Heavenly Father’s work.

The other picture is Sister Thomas cutting Elder Loomis’ hair with his companion Elder Ramashaba looking on.  That hand of Elder Ramashaba was covering a bit of facial hair that needed to get shaved before he went out in the morning.  We were giving him a bit of a hard time about his “beard”.
