We spend A LOT of time at the Lusaka airport and sometimes President Erickson gets a little silly.
Wonderful new arrivals! 4 great elders!
Elder Zhuwankinyu from Zimbabwe
Elder Kobyana from SA
Elder Kobuba from Zimbabwe
Elder Zimene from Zimbabwe
Sister Njirayafa from Botswana and from the Botswana Mission
Elder Abisai from Namibia, here waiting for a visa for SA Durban Mission
Elder Josephy Kapalanga from Lilongwe Kauma branch will also serve in Blantye while he waits for his visa to SA. The bow tie will have to go!
President Erickson set apart these three as full time missionaries. Many thanks to Elder and Sister Stones for getting these young men ready to serve.
Francis Mwale finally got his visa to Brazil where he will attend the MTC, learn Portuguese and be endowed in the temple there. He will then travel back to Swaziland where he will wait for his visa to be approved for Mozambique. Swaziland is part of the Mozambique mission. This is one fine young man!
LaNice and Alan Groesbeck arrived to fill our empty office couple position! We are SOOO thrilled to have them here! We feel the Lord's hand in the timing of their mission application and their willingness to serve where ever the Lord needed them.....because we need them.
