The Newcastle District Conference took place in two locations. Because the branches are spread out, we held the first session in the township of Ezaheni.
On Saturday morning we did the leadership and adult sessions in the morning. Then we drove to Newcastle (about 90 miles away) and did another leadership and adult session with that half of its members. We repeated this on Sunday where we did one session in Newcastle in the morning and returned to Ezakweni in the afternoon before driving another three hours back to Durban! Whew!
Our wonderful District President!
The choirs here put American congregations shame! They sing loud, with harmony, and without accompaniment!
Some of our faithful missionaries!
The missionaries were waiting outside before the conference to greet the members and investigators!
They were goofing around as they saw President!
Investigators brought by the missionaries!
This is a nice chapel! It was a hot, muggy day, with no air-conditioning and the fans did not work! However, the spirit was strong and it was wonderful to be with these people!
