Pinched Nerve Not Knee Problems

I went to the doctor to find out what I needed to do for my knee only to find out that it was not my knee that is giving me problems, it is a pinched nerve in my back.   Thank goodness for a loving husband that supports me for better or worse, in sickness or in health.

Braids, braids and more braids!

Tamra Ellen Edington Tilton this blog is especially for you, but the rest of you can look if you want.

I am constantly amazed at the braided hair of these beautiful women in South Africa.  I have been told there is no way I can have mine done because it is too short but mostly because it is too fine.  The hair pieces that are used for these amazing creations would slide right off of my hair.  Oh well.  I can still enjoy looking at and be amazed by the wonderful designs.  This sister is from Phutaditjhaba.

Elder Hamiltons Mission Tour

We have been so privileged over the last two days to spend time with Elder and Sister Hamilton of the 2nd quorum of the 70's.  They are on a mission tour of South Africa.  On Tuesday July 22 they held a Young Single Adult (YSA) fireside for the young adults of the stake.  He allowed the YSAs to ask him any question they wanted to about anything they wanted to know.

A Visit From Brother McMillan

This is the Blomanda Seminary class.  The teacher is Sister Zolashi Nophali.  We were having some issues with attendance but after some home visits we were pleased to have a good sized class in attendance on Friday.  It is surprising what a warm invitation can do to help encourage the students to come.  This class is full of wonderful young saints that will be the leader here in South Africa in a very short time.
