Every week on our mission we have had chances to interact with amazing missionaries, be in wards with members and see new buildings and congregations.
We have been to 42 wards over 52 Sunday’s, we have hosted over 40 gatherings and events at the mission home. We have flown to Cape Town, had 2 mission president seminars. We have met 100's and100's of people. We have learned some Zulu and Afrikaans. We have been in townships, towns, villages and cities and loved it all.
When all so said and done,,,it is the people. We have come to love the African ways, the phrases like ...... “is it?" "Lekker", "Sawubona", and "Eish." We love Rooibus Tea, Meat on the Braii, KoekSisters and Boerworst. We love sunrises and sunsets and the smiles on the faces of the people. We mostly love the way the missionaries grow up, being around these great people for the two years of their mission.
We only have 24 more months to go. It will fly past, so our opportunity is to savor each and every day.
