New stake for Soweto (New Stake Presidencies)

Summarized by Marc A. Schindler

New stake for Soweto (New Stake Presidencies)
LDS Church News 22May99 C5
New stake for Soweto (New Stake Presidencies)

Red letter day for South Africa and a sign of the Church's growth in areas where Africans (blacks) predominate: Today's Church News announced the creation of a new stake in Soweto, South Africa. It consists of wards in Florida, Kagiso, Protea Glen and Soweto, and branches in Carletonville, Jouberton, Khutsong and Klerksdorp. Soweto itself was previously a branch in the Roodepoort Stake, so obviously has grown, given that it's now a ward.

Here's the stake presidency and their wives:

Robert Eppel, 53, director of temporal affairs for Church Area office; wife Pamela Anne Greenhalgh Eppel. Counselors: T. Jackson Mkhabele, 38, lecturer; wife, Dorah Mjujwa Mkhabele. Khumbulani D. Mdletshe, 34, regional coordinator for Church Educational System; wife, Cynthia Ntombiruthi Mdletshe

Quick, everybody -- can you say "President Mdletshe" or "President Mkhabele"?

A paradox is not a conflict within reality. It is a conflict between reality and your feeling of what reality should be like. - Richard Feynman
