A Beaufiful Family

Jennifer, Grace, Elias, Clayton, John and John Jr. Mwingira
 The John and Grace Mwingira family has been a great blessing in our lives here. They have a delightful family and are wonderful examples of the dedicated and loving African Saints here. Their first son to go on a mission, Elias, bore his testimony in church this week before leaving for the South Africa, Cape Town Mission. This will be his first plane ride and he is very excited. He will attend the Johannesburg Missionary Training Center before he travels to his assignment. We had the pleasure and privilege of having Elias and two other soon to be missionaries, Romanus (South Africa, Durban Mission) and John (South Africa, Johannesburg Mission) to our home for dinner and a "movie". We showed them the inspiring DVD of Elder Jeffrey R. Holland speaking at the Provo MTC Devotional about Christ-like qualities of a missionary. These young men have been best friends since childhood and have encouraged each other  along the way to fulfill their dream to be missionaries.  Elias and Romanus came to the Chang'ombe Music class every Tuesday wanting to learn how to conduct a hymn before they went on their missions.  They both learned quickly and were great students. They will be incredible missionaries. We love them all so much and will miss their endearing personalities. Our loss is South Africa's gain!

An evening with Elias Mwingira, John Komba, and Romanus Gidemi.

Three handsome boys, soon to be men.
