"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

Siba and Xanti and their New Brides
We had a lovely evening last night with the Wheelers. It is always a treat to stay overnight with them. They are gracious hosts.
Today we attended Sacrament Meeting in the Port Alfred Branch where I called a new counselor in the Elders Quorum Presidency. We left the meeting after the intermediate hymn and drove to Grahamstown to get there in time for Priesthood meeting. I released the old Elders Quorum President and then call a new one. It was busy day at Church.
We have had the opportunity to work with Siba on the left and Xanti on the right in the Grahamstown branch. Both are returned missionaries who have served in various callings in the Branch. They are now engaged and I had the opportunity to give them a Temple Recommend interview and a living ordnance recommend so they could get married and sealed. This is their last Sunday at the Branch. They will be going to the Temple on Tuesday for Siba’s bride-to-be to receive her endowments and for Xanti and his bride to be married. Then Siba will move to Port Elizabeth and Xanti will move to Cape Town. These are the Church’s future leaders. Nice young couples.
