Tender Mercies

While we were in the office on Friday, there was the biggest racket outside - it sounded like 100 monkeys all chattering at the zoo.  Another missionary who has been here longer told me that it was a kookaburra because it sounds like someone laughing.  We walked out and I took this video.  And yes, I think it sounds like laughing.  It is a marvel that you can experience it right outside our work.  Our day usually consists of answering the phones, paying bills for missionary apartments, sending letters to parents, missionaries, and church leaders, and visiting with missionaries as they come to the office to pick up supplies.  It is amazing to feel the wonderful relationships between the President and his wife, the Elders and Sisters, and their love and concern for those they teach and those they hope to teach.  We enjoyed a fireside on Sunday with recent converts.  Some were from India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Samoa, and Australia.  Some were 10 or 11 years of age, and others were 20's and 30's and 40's.  They all told their story of finding the gospel of Jesus Christ and learning that He loves them and is interested in their progress in this life.  It was inspiring and uplifting and reminded us that we too are loved by God and He is always mindful of the details of our lives.  The pictures include Tom and the Wallaby, the Koala experience, the cute Echidna, the crazy Cassowary, the noisy Kookaburra, and finally the Wild Wombat.
