President Dunn and I traveled North to spend time with our Elders serving in Polokwane, Mokopane, Tzaneen, Lenyene, Modjadje and Motupa. We were on our way to a District Conference and able to go a day early and "Zone In" with our NorthEast Elders! Our two zone leaders, Elder Olson and Johnson met us with the Elders in Polokwane on our first stop.
Sister Winward always has love to share and something to show. She has worked so hard on the Family History Library and made such a difference in people's lives by helping them do their genealogy.As we drove away I couldn't help but notice the three signs on the building. English, Afrikaans and Security! These go together in South Africa!!
Later we headed to Tzaneen and met up with the 8 Elders there and went contacting in the Central Business Distirct (CBD) of Tzaneen. It is always a way to make contact with people and find together
|Back Row- Elder Kalani, Stephens, Dzowa, Novotny, Laminie Front Row: Elder Koyle, Bryner and Smith-Holley|
It was Friday afternoon and everyone was headed home form work. It was also a hot afternoon in Tzaneen. But, we kept at it and made some contacts. It wasn't easy and so it made it rewarding that we all stuck with it and did our best. We did get some positive contacts out if it, but it shows why member referrals are so much more productive.
The day was so enjoyable with our NE Elders. WE were able to be with each and every one of them and spend time with them, doing what they do. We loved it and we love them!
