|Tom with Khaya, 1st counselor in the branch presidency|
She is very happy with Khaya who has been her gardner since we recommended him. We teased him about finding a wife and suggested he get on with it as he is now in his mid 30's.
He said that he had someone in mind.
We returned ten DVD's and a book I had borrowed from Alan Bamford and gave him the items we had purchased from Makro at his request. He was excited that President Wood had called and asked him to give a 30 minute talk on the Apostasy at the Zone Conference in East London.
He keeps a log of all the missionaries that visit him and showed us an entry for 29 September 2000 when Elder Viwe Sive Xozwa and his companion Elder John Welling visited him. Brother Xozwa was featured recently in an article in the Church News entitled "Perpetual Education Fund a Growing Miracle."
As he is now living in Port Elizabeth Alan decided to call him. When he answered Alan said, "Do you Know Elder Welling?"
"Alan, is that you?" Xozwa responded. They had not seen each other for thirteen years but obviously Alan is a man one can never forget.
Brother Xozwa became an IT consultant and then went on to study labor relations, corporate governance, business administration and advanced project management. He is one of the success stories here and they enjoyed getting caught up.
We had lunch at Spurs and then returned to P.E. in time for the 4:00 p.m. Fire Side with Elder Cook from the African South East Area Presidency who will be the sacrament speaker in a combined meeting of Lorraine and P.E. Ward at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow. We are busy preparing for Zone Conference on Wednesday and my last Institute class that evening.
