|Boselwa will have her birth certificate and South African|
national identification number in three months.
She will be able to get a job and continue her education.
It was touch and go and did not look very promising until the assistant director came out of his office and shook hands with all of us. Then Elder S. took Boselwa off to get some I.D. photos. They fingerprinted her aunt. Both were taken into a secure rooms where their testimonies were heard. We have spent five months working on this including four visits to home affair and countless trips to secure out the information needed to get this done. I asked what name she would be using now that she has an official ID? It's "Boselwa Norongo." She would preferred to go by the name her mother gave her, Mineka, which means beautiful day.
I asked why her aunt poisoned her mother but Boselwa did not know. She heard they fought a lot. She was touched when I told her that my friends were praying for her and that Pat Butts put her name in the temple. Boselwa hopes to have her mothers and father's temple work done as soon as possible.
|Catherine Mzini and her daughter Felicia|
|Lwando Gomba and daughters. His wife was working|
We visited Lwando Gomba and his two daughters. Elder Stokoe taught him how to lead the singing in Priesthood. This is the newest family in the branch. Brother and Sister Gomba were baptised September 7th.
|Thandeke Sneke was baptised on May 4th.|
Relatives and the witch doctors divided up Sister Sneke's assets and moved her from her big house. She now lives in a much small house in Motherwell with the grand daughter and her twenty-five year old son. Her oldest son is a policeman in Cape Town. He visits but I've never talked with him. Wonder what he thinks about thinks about his mother's situation.
Sister Sneke is taking classes in religious philosophy at a local university and is very busy spreading the gospel among her friends and neighbours.
