|As I drove there, I hoped I could find the place.|
|Of course the GPS did not take me to the library where the women were meeting, but luckily I called and got driving directions that got me to the right place.|
|Here is some of the needed hardware and tools they have been able to purchase.|
|Belwo are some of the beautiful items they are making and selling.|
|More beautiful crafts and jewelry.|
|A closer look at some of these darling women! I can't wait to go back on one of their work days and participate more with them. On Heritage day, September 22, 2016, they will be selling even more of their crafts and beautiful items.|
|Elder Egan received a beaded tie|
|They even organized refreshments for everyone. This was quite the celebration.|
|...the next day, on Thursday May 26, 2016, I was able to re-visit the Hospice in Alexandra Township with our Randburg Missionaries and member Wendy Malpage.|
This is a weekly service site where food is being handed out and needs are being met. Her is my visiting friend, Courtney, meeting Mama Grace, the person who makes it all happen here.
|Here is Wendy Malpage helping two young men get help getting their ID's so they can work.|
|She also provides about 30 meals each Thursday for the homeless that come off the streets. This quarter loaf of bread is filled with warm mince and stew.|
|Elder Maraetefau and Elder Warnock helped distribute the bread.|
|A few pictures follow in front of the Hospice. WE gathered in a number of different groups with Mama Grace. I can imagine Courtney partnering with Mama grace in the future and providing some interns for the Hospice from the University of Utah!|
|Alexandra is a great place to provide service. There is a branch here and I love having our missionaries get this experience as part of their weekly experience. Also, serving with a member is ideal and necessary to keep these projects sustainable|
|Last service sight stop for the day! The Ethembeni Home is an orphange in downtown Johannesburg.|
|This is Hannah Malpage, who is volunteering today. There are so many beautiful babies that love being held. It is against policy to take pictures of babies faces.|
|Courtney and I were in heaven.|
|Later Sister Wendy Malpage sent this picture explaining how happy these little children were to get attention and love. They were all clamoring for her lap.|
There is not shortage of needs and great people out making a difference each and every day. It is such an opportunity to figure out how to use our missionary force to help int he right and more appropriate places.
This was a great day or two of amazing people and service.
