I've discovered that downloading a few photos at a time doesn't take as long! So, I will be downloading smaller groups of photos for the second Christmas party held in Bloemfontein!
First, it was another hot day! About 98 degrees Fahrenheit! No air-conditioning in the gym, but there was in the chapel! We still had a great time!
The Newscastle Zone arrived by bus. They traveled for 5 1/2 hours to Bloemfontein.
They are waiting the arrival of the other two zones!
We made these hand prints (like we did in Durban). Each missionary traced their own hand, and wrote a gift to give the Savior. We hung them to for a Christmas tree...this isn't complete yet. We were still waiting for more missionaries to arrive.
Our Lesotho zone was delayed at the border. We are filling time by singing Christmas songs!
President Johns is President Thompson's counselor in the mission. President Thompson arranged for President Johns to have a missionary tag (after three years of service)! Look at the grin on President Johns face!
Still waiting for Lesotho Elders! We decided to move forward. Divided into three groups for skits!
