Richards Bay

  Richards Bay is located North of Durban.  A lovely, breezy little coastal town.  We met the senior couple at our hotel to drop off some missionary mail and packages and prepared for our dinner with Sister Vezi and her husband President Vezi to talk over Public Affair events in her area.  Our dinner was a success, and what was impressive was while we were eating dinner several people came to greet them at our table.  They said the church is well respected in Ricards Bay because of their Helping Hands activities, Round Table discussions, Family History Fairs and other activities that involve the community.

Sister Vezi is the Relief Society President of the Port Durnford Branch and Public Affairs director for the district.

The chairs and tables in the background are sitting in water.  Ohh, it felt so good on my feet.

As we were checking out the young man behind the desk asked us where the church was located.  I was embarrssed to say I wasn't sure because we only arrived yesterday were leaving today.  He said he'd seen the young missionaries and would find them again and go to church with them.  I learned a valuable lesson that whereever we go we need to be able to tell people how to find the church in their area.
