Mission 2014


We continue to enjoy our missionary life.  The elders and sisters are powerful teachers and great examples of the culture of Christ.  Our responsibilities now include Golden orientation.  The Goldens are the new missionaries.  Elder Madsen prepared a power point presentation about adjusting to mission life with help from the tech savvy missionaries.

Before a baptism, the Zone Leaders Elder Niania and Elder Robison showed Elder Madsen how to make a few changes to the slides.

Sunday dinner in our flat with the Latu family, a girlfriend, her little brother, another neighbor and the sister missionaries. We had a great time getting to know them and their traditions from New Zealand.  

We took this picture from the top of the mountain near the church after a district meeting.  The buildings in the background are of Southport, a suburb of Brisbane.  We have only seen the green areas of Australia to date - beautiful trees and flowers.  The birds sing and sing and sing.

One Friday night we invited the Patuaka family to dinner.  He is the ward mission leader in our ward. He suggested that we include a non-member lady in our complex.  Ann Marie (next to Elder Madsen)
is a delightful person that has now become a friend.

Missionaries from the Coomera and Gold Coast Zones met for Zone Conference on September 26, 2014.  We felt the spirit as we listened to the training from President and Sister Henderson.  The missionaries practiced "teaching people, not lessons."  Preach My Gospel continues to inspire us.

Yesterday we cleaned up our little backyard and spread grass seed on the bare spots.  Elder Madsen also transplanted some of the plants in the flower beds.  After we finished, the Lord blessed us with rain.  We will show a follow up picture when the grass grows.
