"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

Game Drive through Mpongo Game Park with the Missionaries
We joined the Mdantsane Zone on a game drive. It was at the Mpongo Private Game Reserve. It cost R 50.00 per person, which is something that the Elders can afford. We were able to see a lot of different boks. Water Buck, Eland, Kudu, Blesbok, Impala, Springbok, Wildebeest are a few. We also saw giraffe and one very large white Rhino.
There were six vehicles with two people in each car so 24 of us in total. It was a good drive and only a flat tire on Elder Carniletto’s vehicle. Too many Elders to be named in the lower left picture. We were happy to have Elder Chapman (left) and Elder Cossey (right) join us in our car for the drive. Sister Thomas wanted a picture of the cactus growing out of the top of the abandoned farm house that was on the game reserve. One wonders how it gets the nourishment to survive up there on the top of the wall.
The Rhino was the star of the day. Unfortunately, our car was not able to get really close to the Giraffes.
