"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

Elder Judd's Birthday

This morning we had planned on attending one of the Mdantsane District meetings so we could celebrate Elder Judd’s birthday.  This morning early the Mdantsane Zone Leaders called and said they could not find a key to the Mdantsane First Ward building where they normally hold the district meetings for their Zone.  As a result, they had to change to the Amalinda Chapel.  No big problem except that several of the East London District Meetings are held there as well.

Sister Thomas and I looked at each other as we realized that we needed an additional cake.  So our plans changed a bit this morning as we (I should say Sister Thomas) put together an additional cake.  We just barely got to district meeting on time.

The district meetings were an excellent follow up on what is needed in the East London Stake.  It was on making sure that the goals of the ward are understood and that the goals of the missionaries are aligned with these.  I attended the MD 2nd Ward district meeting taught by Elder Strauss.  It was a good discussion.  Sister Thomas attended MD 1st Ward district which was taught by Elder Creech - also a good lesson.

Following district meetings, we joined together to sing “Happy Birthday” to Elder Judd.  There are to many Elders in these picture to name them all.  Of course, Elder Judd is the one blowing out the candles.
