a weekend Bible conference

Lots of warm greetings are shared on Friday evening.
A program of introductions and exhortations of one kind or another takes place on Friday night after supper.
Our boys play with their friend Siyanda, who lives on the grounds at the venue, at every Mthatha conference.
Dancing while singing, a favorite activity
An impromptu meeting of the BBS Committee on Friday night. We all squeezed into one member's room.
Almost ready to begin teaching on Saturday morning.

  1. Thanks for the pictures! They help me get a better sense of where you are, what you do, and with whom.

    You both look as if you belong where you are. Anna, you look so natural in the line dance with the other women. I am almost ashamed to say that I danced only occasionally--never feeling quite comfortable with it--for my three years in Zambia.
