We also had a visit from our grandson, Owen, who sent himself as a paper image. We were to take him around to all the places we go and take pictures of him in the various surroundings. We had a lot of fun with this project and hope that he will like all the places we went when he receives the pictures at his school. Of course it would have been even better if he had been here in person.

We had the priviledge of taking Elder Sandile Chirwa to the mission home to be set apart for his mission in Johannesburg. He is from Port Durnford.

A few weeks ago President Vezi of the Port Durnford branch heard noises coming from a chicken coop by his house at night. He went out to investigate and once inside the coop discovered a python killing his chickens. He couldn't get out the door of the coop so he called for someone to bring him a spear and he wrestled the python until he was able to kill it with the spear. It was three meters long. It was a female and now he is watching for the male which is much larger.

Last week we took a couple of days and went to visit our friends who are serving in Swaziland. We wanted to visit their branches to see how things are done there. While we were there we made a quick trip to Kruger National Park. We were so excited to finally get to go there. We had a marvelous time and saw all of the Big Five. The leopard was back in the trees and we saw his long tail held high in the air. It was awesome!
