We received an assignment from President Merrill to interview an investigator who has a baptismal date in Mthatha. We drove to Mthatha on Saturday morning and arranged to meet up with the Elders at the Mthatha Nando’s for lunch. After we had checked into our Bed & Breakfast, we met up with Elders Best and Castro and they rode with us. They directed us where to go for the interview with the baptismal candidate. The interview was a blessing.
When I was through, we visited with all the children who had gathered in the yard to play. This tree was the local jungle jim with the boys beginning at the top branch and swinging and catching the new lower branch until they landed on the ground. Sister Thomas had a picture taken with all the girls who had gathered to watch and play.
Sister Thomas took up a beef roast, carrots, onions and other ingredients in order to help the Elders prepare a crock pot lunch for Sunday after church. They were very grateful for the help and advice. While the lunch is for all four elders, we left before Elders Young and Banda returned home from the last appointment.
