Farewell to South Africa

Though it is impossible to believe, we have said our goodbyes to South Africa.  We departed our flat in Gonubie (East London) on January 10 after tender goodbyes to all of our dear friends in Mdantsane.  The past eighteen months of being in the full-time service of our Heavenly Father, as his ordained ministers, has been remarkable on so many levels.  While we were serving, teaching and ministering to others something very sacred happened within our own hearts that has changed us forever.  We will never be the same and rejoice in the time which we had to serve along side so many remarkable missionaries.     

Thanks to all who have supported us by following our blog and keeping us in your prayers.  So goodbye for now...until our next mission.
