|Presidency Elder Mdlele, President Zitsu & Elder Sisfundiso|
First Counselor Mdlele served in the leadership of another church until he prayed for direction at the beginning of the year. He felt impressed to join his two daughters who had just been baptised. Before they found the church his family all attended different churches. He said that leadership requires a lot of responsibility and he hoped "to hide here" after he was baptised but the Lord had other things in mind for him. He is now President Zitsu's first counselor.

(The Nygoneela family we visited last night came to church today.) I am sure they were touched by the strong testimony that their relative Sisfundiso bore.
President Neko described his impression to start a group in Motherwell. He said it has not been easy. He approached two other elementary schools in an effort to find space to rent. When he arrived at Elufefeni Primary School and was met by two members who teach here he knew he had found the right place to start the branch. The first meeting was held on December 3, 2012. Six members attended.

Sister Mzimi followed her daughter into the waters of baptism. She serves as second councillor in the Motherwell Relief Society. She talked today about the unity needed between a husband and wife. They need to be united in order to properly lead their family.
I gave the opening prayer and the spirit was strong throughout the meeting. The twelve members of the high council attended as did all the leaders of the various auxiliaries. Every seat was filled. Luwando and Khwezi Gombha who were baptised yesterday were confirmed today.
Since the meeting lasted into the second hour the Stake President cancelled Sunday School and Relief Society/Priesthood and sent everyone out door to visit and take pictures.
These young women leaders were both baptised in the last three months.
