"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

East London and Mdantsane Zone Conference
Zone Conference for the Mdantsane and East London Zones was a wonderful faith promoting experience. President Merrill had asked the missionaries to study the combination of Setting Goals, Covenants and Faith together.
The training took on a special spirit as the President and the Assistants took the lead in teaching the missionaries in a grand council meeting.
Sister Thomas, Sister Wheeler and Sister Chase were wonderful as they made preparations for the lunch of roasted beef fillet roast, baked potato, corn, bread rolls and then an awesome desert prepared by Sister Wheeler. It is surprising just how much work goes on behind the scenes.
You can see President and Sister Merrill speaking personally to the Elders as they passed out a Christmas message from the Prophet.
The Elders also prepared a “Christmas Around the world”. They read the story of the birth of Christ with each missionary reading one verse in their own language. Then some of them share a tradition from their home country or from their family. It definitely ushered in the Christmas spirit to all of us.
