Weekend in Huambo

A weekend with the members in Huambo was an enjoyable experience. Casal Violin drove up from Lubango to get to know the members, like Edine and Aurora, and the city they will be watching over. There were 26 people at their Sacrament Meeting and they had enough children (actually all boys) to have the first-ever Primary. Without any advance planning Sister Violin taught them the song "Once There Was a Snowman" ("homem de neve") and then told them the Easter Story with pictures. It was wonderful even though she had enough time to do it all 3 times. There were more nonmembers at church and the spirit was wonderful. Some day soon they will become a branch!
