We had the Mdantsane Zone over to our house today to Wash, Wax and Braai with us. We were somewhat lucky today because we had three new vehicles show up this morning. I had the missionaries meet me down at the site where Mercedes ships out all their vehicles and we picked up our new Chevy Aveos. We had the opportunity to wash and wax the Elders’ brand new vehicles. They drove away very pleased and happy with their cars. Even our problematic silver Toyota looked good today.
Sister Thomas cooked all the hamburgers while Elder Thomas provided some direction on waxing and buffing out of small scratches. Later, we all had the hamburgers for lunch and all the Elders went away happy and full.
It was also Elder Sanders birthday this week so Sister Thomas also baked a cake and we had it with ice cream after we all sang “Happy Birthday” to him.
This was a warm sunny South African afternoon. It was a bit heart breaking to know this was the last time we would do this with the Elders.
