Sunday in Seshgo!

Branch Conference in the North!

The Polokwane Branch Conference was held on Sunday March 22, 2015. The conference was unique because it was held in Sheshgo, 30k outside of Polokwane. Sheshgo is a "group," not yet a branch. There are about 60-70 members each week on Sunday, and they meet in a primary school building.  It meant a lot to the Sheshgo group to host the conference. Usually conferences are held in the branch, which has its own building in Polokwane. The Mokopane members also came.

We are grateful to President Winward of the Polokwane Branch. He and his sweet wife have helped so much in this area. President Winward conducted the conference.

Many members arrived on Saturday to clean up the school and rooms, so that it would be ready and nice for the conference.

The District Presidency were part of this special conference and we were able to travel up from Johannesburg to participate. We are so happy to participate. There was a great spirit here and it meant a lot to these members to have focus on their group and branch.  It also means a lot to them to have district and mission guests. They are delighted when visitors come and it makes the conference more special for them, so they tell us!
Above there are pictures of the members being greeted and gathering at the Sheshgo building, which is hosted in a school.
Below is President Dunn with Warrick DuPlessey, a newly called missionary heading to England in a month. Elder Dela Cruz also pictured with wonderful members of the branch.

President Dunn with President Mathipa, the new branch president in Mokopane. Elder Dye was the Sunday School teacher for the Investigator's Class and did such a tremendous job. He is a great teacher.
Elder and Sister Hansen are serving exclusively in Sheshgo and love the people. They have set up a weekly basketball program for the locals. Every where they go, they make such an impact.
 Below is a picture of Elder Olson and Henderson with their new convert, Brother Itumeleng. He seems so happy to be on this new personal journey.
After the meeting we gathered for a few pictures of our missionaries. I am pictured below with Elder Dye, Henderson and Olson.  President Dunn and Elder Dela Cruz are pictured with two wonderful members.
 Visiting the primary was one of my favorite parts. These young people are reverent, interested and delightful. You can see it in their faces.

We always love being with our missionaries and they liked the mail and packages we brought with us.
This was a beautiful and memorable day in the NorthEast. We were honored to be part of this special conference.
