The fireside started at 2:30 pm. Some of the members stayed after their earlier meetings that ended at 12 pm. A few needed to take a nap in between to make it to the start time!
|haha- It shows a lot of diligence to be willing to come to a 3 hour church block and then stay an additional 3- 4 hours to hear a fireside. It is nice you can lay down for a bit on the benches before the meeting started again.|
|The Dobsonville Elders planned the fireside, invited all their investigators and even sang a special musical number.|
|Elder Curriden, Elder Cox and Elder Pickup sang "Where can I turn for peace" while Elder Powell accompanied them on the guitar.|
Missionaries are invited to initiate a fireside in their branch or ward, if it has not been offered yet. We find it is a great way to strengthen the ward or branch, while bringing investigators to the church for a faith promoting story. Thanks, Soweto District for leading out and for your amazing success in Soweto.
