Last Blog Post in Africa

 A cake presented to us by Elder Gilbert and Elder Hamilton on the day of MLC, they were so thoughtful, now pay attention to the cars.  Since Elder Hawkins is in charge of the vehicles for the mission they made sure that one vehicle represented the "rollovers" and the other vehicle was all smashed.  The little army guy represents Elder Hawkins' "wacker" a mission joke after a talk he gave.
 Below is a picture of a Tsebee, I haven't been able to get a picture of this animal, also the last picture at the bottom of the blog is also some Tsebees.  I was finally able to make it to the Pilanesberg National Park before I left the mission, and this is where we saw these Tsebees.
 Here we have a cool picture of the Wildebeest and a Rhino starring each other down.  We had the chance to go with the Owens (the couple taking our place when we leave) to go to the Mafikeng Game Reserve while in Mafikeng.  The next day was a P-Day and we headed to the Pilanesberg National Park after spending the night in Rustenburg at a fun Lodge, an hour from the park.

 I thought this was a pretty awesome picture of a Kudu below and Hippos, if you look closely you can see three baby hippos in between the two BIG ones, these were also seen at the Pilanesberg National Park

What a fun and delightful experience being in Africa has been, two weeks left and we will definitely miss the people here.
