Cape Town, South AfricaIt has become a wonderful place to gather each May for the Mission President's Seminar.
|We like it here!|
|We love serving in South Africa and it is such a privilege to be able to see more of this beautiful country. |
Table Mountain in one of the 12 Wonders of the World.
During the seminar we were able to enjoy a fun activity together on a sunset cruise through the harbor and out into the bay.
|We loved this outing!|

|We enjoyed one dinner out with couples- the Merrill's and the Erickson's at the Cape Grace. Lovely time to catch up and share mission stories and experiences.|
|The best pat of the activity is that it was a SUNSET cruise. As we were out the sun went down and the moon came up. The lights of Cape Town and the waterfront guided us back into the harbor. It was a beautiful night and fun to be together with all the couples. I wish I could have got a picture of everyone!|
|On our last day we had time to take a bike ride along the coast and towards Chapman Peak before we flew out. It was so stunning.|
|We also visited the most famous Botannical garden in all of South Africa|
|I loved the Protea Garden most of all!|
|Nestled right up against Table Mountain makes this an extra special setting.|
|We also made time to drop by the mission home in Cape Town and see where our dear friends the Merrill's reside. We came out together with Elder and Sister Merrill in 2014 and will go home together next year. There mission home was purchased in 1985 and it was a girls boarding school. It was so special to see where they serve and we love them and look forward to connecting with them again in November in Joburg. We hope to get them over to the SAJM mission home in Roodepoort at 21 Carnation Street at that time for a dinner!|
|We even made it back to the airport with time to spare.....which is unusual the way we packed in the day!|
