My husband and I are missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on assignment to promote education in the Eastern Cape. I love to read, share books and dance, either Zumba and/or Dance Exercise, in my garage. We will be moving from #16 into #17 Turnburry on June st. I wish to share our good fortune and larger flat by offering the following:
1. Dance Exercise and/or Zumba every Saturday morning at 7 a.m. in my “dance studio,” my double garage, beginning June 9th.
2. Bible Study- the New Testament (King James version) on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
3. Monthly Book Club. I have read several books lately which I would like to share with some like minded readers: They include: Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mendela; Pale Native - Memories of a Renegade Reporter by Max Du Preeze, An Inconvenient Youth, Julius Malema and the ‘New” ANC - by Fiona Forde; Safari and African Dawn- “A country in Turmoil, a Family torn Apart.” By best selling author Tony Park. I would like to consider: Heaven is for Real - a little boys’s astounding story of his trip to heaven and back by Todd Burpo. Chronicles Brothers Series is fiction based on bible sources. Author Wendy Alec is the programming director of her husband’s Christian TV network. Book One, “The Fall of Lucifer,” Book Two, “The First Judgment,” Book Three, “Son of Perdition.” This is the story of Three Royal Brothers... Three Archangels... One Turned Renegade. The book selection for our first gathering at the end of June will be determined by the interest of participants. Date and time will be announced later.
4. Turnburry Book Exchange. I am happy to share any book that I am not holding back for review. If any one has backs they want to exchange or donate please bring them to #16 or to #17 after June 1st.
