Our Salt Lake Visitors

Brother and Sister Marriott, Sister and Brother Stevens

Sister Abraham, Sister Stevens, Sister Gubler, Sister Antoniou
Elder and Sister Maynes and our ENTIRE mission :-)

We have been very fortunate to have Salt Lake guests visiting in Botswana this past month. Here are pictures of Sister Stevens, 1st Counselor in the General Primary Presidency and Sister Marriott, 2nd Counselor in the General Young Women's Presidency. It was so fun to have these delightful women and their husbands speak to us and especially to have them speak with the leadership of the wards, branches and stake in Botswana. Additionally we had Elder Richard J Maynes of the Seven Presidents of the Seventy come and do a training for the Priesthood in Botswana as well as a personal training for the missionaries. We also had Elder Carl B Cook of the 1st Quorum of Seventy come and do training. What an amazing time for all of us. We were told to open our mouths and share the Gospel message ever chance we get. It has been a very spiritual month for us.

It's so wonderful to be able to serve the Lord on a mission! We love the people here. They are so friendly and kind to us. We can't go into a store without someone asking us about the church. Everyone wants to know where are congregations meet. One lady at a store told me that her Mom went to our church when she lived in Gaborone but she has moved to her village is and is 150k from the nearest LDS church. This delightful woman also told me that the missionaries had gotten her off of coffee. :-)

I can't even imagine having these types of conversations in the US. How blessed we are to be in Botswana!
