Elder Joseph Sitati, First Quorum of the Seventy, and serving on the Self Reliance Committee in Salt Lake City, came to Harare to support the Self Reliance Program. When we found out that he was coming, we requested permission to go to Harare to be instructed by him and Thabo Lebethoa, Manager of the Self Reliance Program for the Africa Southeast Area. Permission was granted and we were able to travel to Zimbabwe. We spent 2 1/2 days in meetings with Elder Sitati and our leaders from the Self Reliance team and it was so uplifting and inspiring. Our hearts were touched and we received more much needed instruction. Elder Sitati encouraged the leaders and adults of the stakes in Zimbabwe to prepare themselves to be self reliant and to be able to take care of themselves and even be able to serve missions in the future like the senior couples who were in attendance. We were treated with so much respect and we learned so much.

The Falls is quite the sight. Well worth visiting!
Taking a break at the falls. Elder & Sister Bingham. We are grateful for our leaders giving us permission to take this little trip. Africa is a beautiful place to be.
