Mdantsane Zone Training and Interviews
The Mdantsane Zone Training and Interview meeting was held on Saturday which was a bit different to our normal weekday meeting. The Zone Leaders provided training to help the Elders focus on finding father led families to teach.
Today the Wheelers were here and Sister Wheeler was a big help to Sister Thomas as she prepared lunch. We were somewhat lucky because the East London Zone conference was yesterday so we left the tables up with the table clothes on them. Set up was a breeze.
The President’s training followed on from his focus since he arrived in the mission. Obedience and helping the Elders develop faith in order to test the promises of God. President and Sister Merrill began by sharing the experiences that the Elders have had across the mission as Heavenly Father has begun to bless them following their obedience, prayers, commitment and the trial of their faith.
About halfway through the afternoon training, we received a call from the East London 3rd Ward Elders who had locked their keys in the boot of their car while doing a service project. We had to go get their spare key, which we store at out boarding and then go help them unlock the car. Then as quick as we could, we drove back to the Church in time to lock the building. President and Sister Merrill were there waiting for us when we returned. Sister Merrill, like all good members was busy vacuuming the rooms we had used. Such a good example!

If someone could help teach me how to get Elder Mchunu to smile I would be grateful. One of Heavenly Fathers finest missionaries a wonderful Zone Leader who knows how to work and smile in real life. However, for some reason he saves his serious side for pictures.
