This week in the Angola Mission Region
Last week found us visiting the Viana branch. Their new chapel is beautiful and will serve them well. We stopped for a picture with some of the members and Elders Nequetela and Bauer. Also this week Elders Manuel and Allison stopped by the mission home for a meeting. Elder Manuel immediately took off his dusty shoes to relax in his stocking feet. Elder Allison, however, left his worn shoes on and I really like the contrast of these missionaries feet. To missionaries, feet are everything and they need to treat them well so they will be ready at any moment to get out for some teaching and finding. While these zone leaders were here, we put together the very first transfer board in Angola. With 11 missionaries arriving over the next two weeks, we have a lot of planning and adjusting to do to accommodate the doubling of the Lord's workforce here in Angola. Exciting times are ahead for this mission! Tune in next week for pictures of the comings and goings from this very busy week in the mission.
