Today was an early start and a long day. We returned the truck we had rented and then rented a small pickup (bakie) to use to deliver the two extra beds and two desks to Mthatha. We drove up in a constant but light rain with a great deal of fog.
We arrived and the Elders helped us off load the beds and mattresses into their newly cleaned garage. It was rainy and cold in Mthatha. You can see how the Elders were dressed for the day. Pictured are Elder Banda, Sister Thomas, Elders Castro, Best and Martey.
Once that was done we took the Elders to Nando’s for lunch. Then Sister Thomas and I had to get on the road so we could get back before dark. We had a significant delay driving through Butterworth. It is a small town that is very congested because of the holidays. It took us just over 45 minutes to crawl through the town that does not have more that three traffic lights down the main road.
