One of our Senior Sister Missionaries helped put together a special fireside for prospective missionaries. The fireside was conducted in all five districts.
The one below is in Maseru Lesotho
We are hoping to have at least 50 young men and women leave on missions from our districts
The fireside was uplifting and edifying as well as inspirational and informative!

There were two firesides in Lesotho - this one is in the Maseru Chapel, and the other was in Leribe
Just look at this fabulous trio of Sisters! It has been a long time since the mission has had sister missionaries! We will be receiving three more senior sisters in the next few weeks! What a blessing to have these wonderful women grace our mission! The District President in Lesotho calls them the
We have several District Conferences within a few weeks of each other, and since President Thompson has to preside at each one of them - we ran out of days to hold Zone Conferences and had to combine these two fabulous Zones.

Our missionaries are now walking or biking instead of driving!
After much deliberation with security officers and church leaders, it is deemed more safe for missionaries to be on foot or to bike. Safety is first and foremost for our missionaries.
Missionaries will also take public transportation to get to longer distances.
Another change is the missionary schedule. Due to our missionaries walking or biking now, morning has become a prime proselyting time. After the first three weeks, our missionaries report that morning is surprisingly a really good time to teach!
So proud of all of these wonderful young men!

Because the Elders are no longer using cars, President will now have to go to each of their boardings (or see them at Zone Conferences) to conduct Mission President Interviews! Scheduling the logistics for these has become daunting, because President doesn't want to interfere with their appointments. As a consequence, President Thompson caters to their schedules and is sometimes going very early in the morning, or later at night, and oftentimes both. I'm glad he has a lot of stamina!!!
