Branch conference in Klerksdorp

Klerksdorp Branch Conference
Sunday August 29, 2016
We headed to Klerksdorp today to participate in their annual branch conference. This is a mission dependent branch, so it is very special to be able to support them for the conference. President Robbins shared a great message, despite a death in their family yesterday. His mother in law passed away in their home and they are dealing with an unexpected loss. He left after sacrament meeting- we send them our love at this difficult time.

Elder Jangao was joined by Elder Dionisu this week with the transfer. They both seem very enthused about the work in this area.
Great meeting- great talk- New converts!  A member had a birthday this week and her daughter sent these beautiful flowers to her and she shared them with the branch today.
Elder and Sister Duncan have been here less than 2 months and have jumped right in. Elder Duncan is serving as a Counselor in the Branch Presidency and Sister Duncan is serving as the Primary President.  
The Young Men of the branch are a dynamic group. They were all hanging out after church in the YM room. 
There are so many long standing members here in Klerksdorp and many new investigators.
This great recent convert, JJ, got baptized on July 24th 2016. Today he brought 2 of his colleagues to church for the first time. How impressive it was that he would invite his co-workers and share his new found church with them. 
Members hosted a great lunch after the branch conference.
They served samp and chicken stew with salad and pudding.

A great group. I was honored to get to help a bit. 
A great kitchen crew! 
Saying goodbye at the end to our missionary sons. 
There is always someone that wants to talk .... 
to President Dunn
and get his picture taken. 

And wanted to wear President Dunn's mission tag. He hopes he can someday be one!
