We are not always involved in the day to day missionary work of teaching and baptizing. But we always enjoy the missionaries' powerful spirits as they come and go from our offices each day. Elder Bettridge from Utah is kind, pleasant and always smiling. And as you look at these photos, you can see that all are happy in serving the Lord, and helping others. We are uplifted by their examples and hope that we too can exemplify the love of the Savior for all.

Sister Haynes is getting ready to move to the Australia Sydney South Mission - notice her big smile??? She and her husband are from Brisbane Australia and have helped us learn about the office procedures. We will miss them when they leave in a few days.
Sister Feil at the desk - she looooovesssss this computer and sits and stares at it all day long! Notice it is dark outside?? That is because she is working at her new work ethic that her son Casey says she needs to get. :)
Play Day - off to the Rocks with Sister Jorgenson, and Sister Tanner.
That is the oldest house in Sydney that they are refurbishing. The stone house belonged to the Bay Master who watched over Sydney Harbour.
Couldn't resist a little tree hanging. One of the first days of wearing pants - we were off duty.
This is a fig tree that was planted in 1992. This shows what a little water, pruning, a fertilizer can do to help a tree planted in fertile ground. Sister Baker, from Moses Lake Washington, Sister Tanner, from Payson Utah, Sister Jorgenson, from Washington, and Sister Kohlert, from Salt Lake City area, and Sister Feil trying to climb the tree - no success - she's too old! In fact, we are all older than this tree!
Under the Harbour Bridge Roadway. Where has all the traffic gone?
Some of the original old houses that used to be in this area. Most were torn down when an outbreak of Bubonic Plague struck in the early 1900's.
