After breakfast at the parsonage the group staying in Kleinwelka arrived in Niesky.  We were then taken on a sight-seeing tour of Niesky by Sr Gill Vogt.  This included a visit to Emmaus Hospital, creche and senior citizen home where we played and had lunch.  After lunch Sr Gudrun Schiewe took us to God's acre where we were taken to the grave of Georg Schmidt, the first missionary to South Africa.  We were very happy to see that the grave had been restored at the instigation of Revv Godfrey Cunningham and Bill Meyer, two ministers from the Moravian Church in South Africa who had visited the grave a couple of years ago.  We were also showed some treasures of the congregation which included arguably the biggest Moravian Star in the world, and also original correspondence between Count Zinzendorf and Georg Schmidt.  A special treasure was the children from the kindergarten who sang for us.  Thereafter we enjoyed coffee and cake before preparing for our evening concert.  The concert was a rousing success and served as a precursor for what we could expect on the rest of the tour. The concert followed by a braai after which the Kleinwelka group returned to Kleinwelka.  The concert was again graced with the presence of the Frank ladies.
