Mission Presidency and Wives, July 2012
July 18 2012, we attended our SACTM mission presidency meeting in Cape Town. Mark I. Wood, Mission President and his wife Kathy. J. Clarke Fowers, first counselor and Steven R. Smith, second counselor. The Smiths cover the entire country of Namibia as the only senior couple with only 6 missionaries. We (Fowers) cover the Eastern Cape Province which is about half the size of California with 44 missionaries and three Zones.

While there, we took a p-day and hiked to the top of Lion's head mountain with the mission presidency. The hike was 2 miles going from sea level to about 2,800 feet to the top. Ascending upward, the narrow trail wraps around the small but steep mountain affording breathtaking views of Cape Town, Table Mountain to the east and the Atlantic ocean.
Winter flowers overlook empty beaches.
Smiles amid the pain of unused muscles.
