To the families of missionaries who are "stalking" our blog. As we approach the end of our service we thought it would be good to share photos of some we serve with.
We hope the parents of these missionaries see these photos and know that they are loved.
|The Harbour Beaches Zone had a nice opportunity to attend the temple. They are all wonderful servants of the Lord. We love them and enjoy their personalities and influence.|
This group has missionaries from Taiwan, US, Canada, Tonga, Australia, Guam, and China. This effort is much more successful for helping world understanding and peace.
|Carlingford Court Shopping Centre isn't a great background compared with the temple, but the Elders are awesome.|
When Sister Feil has a project to complete Plan of Salvation teaching aids, the missionaries jump in and provide hours of laminating and cutting. The teaching aids are drawings provided by one of our missionaries.
|Their companions are taking the Driver Training Course and driving test. Having the time, they are able and willing servants, no matter what the office project!|
|Let's operate. How am I doing, so far?|
This is the artist for the Chinese plan of salvation kit. She had training as a graphic design artist before her mission. The Elder above had training as a laminator two minutes before this photo was taken. He is a quick study. :)
|Healthy snacks energize the body and spirit. Sister Feil provides the ingredients and Sisters provide the recipes.|
|Kookaburras in Hyde Park were laughing away even in the busy city. This is called a Blue Wing Kookaburra. The telephoto lens helps to get close enough to see them.|
|There are many clock towers around the city. Each has a unique style and architecture. It's fun to see the old mixed with the new in this large city.|
|Gardening is allowed in front of the Museum of Sydney. Weed pulling is an optional visitor activity.|
|The view towards the Harbour.|
|Models of the original fleet which brought 800 criminals and 600 crew members to Australia from the United Kingdom - 11 ships in all. Who's that guy "herding" them?|
|Another beautiful clock in Sydney. You just need to walk around a little and these are visible. Do we appear to be aware of time?|
|The Museum of Sydney is in a modern building where the first governor's house once stood. A noticeably beautiful day! Coat and sweater had to be removed by this lovely lady.|
|Ivan from Greece, shop keeper and tour guide.|
|Here are the companions for the day. We have enjoyed the Smiths company on many trips and hope to see them when we get home.|
|Has anyone in there heard of the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ?|
|Evan and Jonathan were the butt (pun intended) of numerous jokes when they went to scout camp one year and took photos of the outhouses. We've joined the ranks of boy scouts and now take photos of outhouses!|
In the little shop we found a small replica of a Sydney shop - not the Black Cat Series, but close enough to require buying. It's coming home with us so that we can always remember Sydney. And then we saw the brides coming for their pictures at Sussanah Place Museum! In the summer they que up - 8-10. But this is winter and only 2 brides came.
|Here we are at Greenway walk - Ron and Mel where are you?? This is named after the architect of 40 of Sydney's buildings of which 11 are still standing and in use today. Remember he was a convict also - charged with forgery of a building contract and sentenced to death but sent to NSW. Macquarie being a smart leader, used Greenways talents. The next leader of NSW fired Greenway and tried to kick him out of his house which stood in this area but Greenway produced the deed that he owned it free and clear. They always wondered if it was another forgery??|
|There is a great barbecue-it-yourself restaurant here and on our list of to-do's.|
