It's a quiet week in the office - so quiet that we even had time to set up the tripod, put the camera on and take some great photos when the missionaries came to the temple. Since the Killebrews arrived, the work load has truly been cut in half. That left us plenty of time to work on our talks for the Mt. Druitt sacrament meeting. The sisters above are Chinese speaking and Training Leader Sisters. They work in the city. We are getting close to 1/2 sisters in the mission. That is definitely a change. The next two Elders we met in the MTC on our last week there. We found out that we were all going to be in this mission and after waiting for their visas, we are all here and busy. They claim to be related because we knew them first! It seems funny, but the friends you make in the MTC stay with you the whole mission.
Elder Tall Man is giving Sister Feil a hard time - you can't get a picture of me.....
HA, got it!
|These are the Harbour Suburbs Elders. The are from Tonga, the US, the Philippines, and French Polynesia. They are hard working, strong, cheerful and devoted to the Savior. That is the best combination of any. We run to keep up.|
It is difficult to get the whole zone together, but with several pictures, we were able to do it. Below are the new sisters from Tonga who completed the ESL program. They are doing so well with English that they almost understand Sister Killebrew's Texan! Their trainers are helping though, and with English study every morning, in a few months they will be speaking like Aussies, English, or NZ. Or maybe a combination of all three. Not to worry, Elder Feil and I still speak American.
