Theophany and Theophania

4 January 2015

Two of the oldest members of our Mamelodi congregation, Christina Mothapo and Theophania Malahlela, have their birthdays near the beginning of the year. Christina turnd 89 on 1 January, and Theophania will be 73 on Theophany, 6 January. This year we were able to arrange for the Mamelodi congregation to attend the Divine Liturgy At St Nicholas Church in Brixton. We used to be able to do that fairly regularly, until our Toyota Venture was stolen in 2006, and now we can only arrange it about once a year or so.

Christina’s godmother Ellie Mullimos  (101) had to give up driving, so she was not able to be in church on this day, but we had celebrated her 100th birthday a couple of years before.
