That is correct. Seven new members have been baptized in the last month.
First came the baptism of all four of Nonzame Kafrijte's children who were of age. The youngest is in Elder Branch's arms and is three years old. I must also mention here how blessed we are to have Elder Prisbrey and Elder Branch. They are dynamite Elders. Obedient and faithful.
This past Sunday we added three more members. Two girls who are YSA age. Memory Chinoyere and Praise Nyemba. The young many is Siphosethu Jawuka. He is 17 years old. The highlight of the day for me was in the chapel as we were singing the closing song, "Count Your Many Blessings". I was leading and looked down at Praise. If I had just given her a million dollars, I don't think her smile could have gotten any bigger. These girls are golden. They practically taught the lessons to the Elders. The Elders would give them an assignment and the next week when they came, the girls gave the lesson to the Elder's and they just fine-tuned what the spirit was manifesting to them.
Siphosethu with his mother and baby sister. President Merrill, our Mission President has asked the missionaries to make sure that the parents understand the commitment that is required with membership in our church. She is thrilled for her son. We'll see if she will follow in "His" footsteps.
Memory on the left with Praise on the right and their sister Agnes in the middle who came for support and is also taking the lessons. Our Elders are BUSY!
While all of the ordinances are taking place our dedicated RS Presidency are in the kitchen fixing a light luncheon for all the members. We hold our baptisms directly after the three hour block, which makes for some hungry members. From right to left are Nomsa, Elizah, Sinomtha, and Monica. We love these good sisters.
Zion is growing in Port Alfred!
