Plenty of joy in Joburg

On Tuesday April 21, we welcomed the Joburg Zone for a day of interviews. 8 came at 9 am and the next group arrived at 11 am.

Back row: Elder De Hunt, Elder  Bua, Elder Ryan, Elder Perkins, Elder Mamhere, Elder Reese, Elder Nelson
Front Row: Elder Lamini, President Dunn

Cornbread Muffins are staged and ready to be made.  A main staple in Africa is Miele, which is similar to cornmeal. We used this for our recipes to encourage more use of this staple.

Irene adds color to the mission home. She has been especially helpful to our service minded missionaries by giving them service needs around the mission home.
