WE LOVE OUR MISSION!
Our experiences are varied and fulfilling.
Our dear friends, Elder and Sister Mizukawa arrived
to serve in our mission, too. They stayed with us for
the weekend before traveling to Townsville, in
northern Australia, where they will serve.
All the senior missionaries in the Australia Brisbane Mission participated in a Senior Conference. We enjoyed training, sharing experiences, eating, visiting, hiking and getting to know each other better. WE LOVED IT! So many great people!!!
We have visited New South Wale a couple of times for district meetings with the
elders and sisters. It is part of the Gold Coast Zone. The landscape is beautiful
with rolling hills, farms and a glimpse of the ocean along the way.
This was a picture taken at the Sister's Conference. All the sister missionaries met
to be instructed by President and Sister Henderson. The sisters from the Northern Zones watched by skype.
Sister Smith (next to Elder Madsen) and
her companion, Sis. Isenberger came to
visit on her last night in the mission. She
went home to New Zealand.
The Gold Coast Zone at Stake Conference on November 1, 2014. We gave 80
Book of Mormons to the stake members to give to someone. The missionaries
will follow up with them in a few weeks and then teach the referrals.
Coomera Zone P-Day
We visited Tambourine Mountain and hiked to a waterfall.
Then we returned to our flat for dinner.
....and other activities like giving haircuts in our garage.
We love the purple jacaranda trees in bloom everywhere here in Queensland.
What a glorious spring it has been!
A photo outside the church on transfer day. Everyone is always so excited to
see a former companion. No one wants to leave when it is over.
