A Visit, a Graduation, and a Wedding in a Few Weeks!

Kaitlyn enjoyed a visit from Uncle Jon. He was with us for the last 2 weeks of December.

On December 28, the first graduating class from the Bible School received their diplomas at the Christmas conference. Mr. Pieter Marais, as an honored guest, passed out the diplomas.

The church's executive committee secretary, Ausi Ramakhula, and her fiance planned a beautiful wedding. These are some of the young ladies from the various churches escorting the bride to the tent. This is one of the wedding customs in Lesotho.

After an all-day wedding and no nap, she fell asleep on the way home. We weren't sure if she would be up to attending the second day's wedding festivities . . .

. . . but she did fine! The second day was at the groom's home in Roma. There the bride received her new name--'Me Mafelipe.
