"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

Scripture repairs, District Meeting broken cars and Cleaning Supplies.
A busy day in the mission field begins with fixing two sets of scriptures for the Elders early in the day before District Meetings. Then we attended the East London 3rd and 4th Ward District Meetings. I have had this picture on the wall in every business office I have worked in for the past 20 years. It reminded me every day that my life was not just about the manufacture, delivery and sales of explosives. I had the Elders take our picture next to it in the institute building where the District Meetings were held.
After that we attended to some errands to pay some bills and to get to the Telkom Store to get some queries answered for some other Senior Couples. When we were done at the Telkom store, we received a call from East London 2nd ward Elders that their car was making noises. We drove to meet them and I drove the car. It was making a wild screaming sound from the right front wheel. We managed to get it to the church and arranged for a tow truck to come and take it to the dealer. We will have to check on this Monday.
By the time the tow truck came, we had to rush to make it to a dinner with the East London Stake Presidency. We were invited to their social, which was a very nice jester by them. We have had such a wonderful working relationship with them and it has been a blessing to us. We spent a wonderful evening with the Presidency and their wives. We went to the Cape Town Fish Market restaurant for dinner. The food was great and the company excellent. We have come to love and respect President Bell, President Van Heerden, President Mangwane and Brother Welsh. Unfortunately, we forgot to get a picture of the event.
After the dinner we went and dropped off some cleaning supplies to the Mdantsane 2nd ward Elders. These Elders were pleased with the supplies. In truth, it does not take much to keep Elders smiling. They are always grateful for what we do.
