New Elders’ Quorum President
On Sunday, September 18, Jane and I went to the Francistown Branch Conference. At I had an interview with Brother Lowani to interview him to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood and be ordained an Elder. Brother Lowani had been a member since May. Following his interview to be ordained an Elder, I interviewed him to be the Elders’ Quorum President. After Sacrament Meeting, he was ordained an Elder and I set him apart as Elders’ Quorum President. Only later that day did I learn from the Branch President that Brother Lowani hitchhiked for three hours to cover the 100 kilometers (60 miles) from his home to Church. He had arisen at so he would be on time for the interview. He would have to hitchhike home as well.
